Green Flash West Coast IPA is a delicious, bitter, fruity IPA with strong aromatic citrus flavors. I'd compare this beer to the Firestone Union jack in that it has a deeply enjoyable bitterness balanced well with mainly grapefruit and other citrus. At 7.3 percent alcohol, the west coast IPA is a beer you could drink more than one at a time, and at about $8-9 for a 4 pack, it won't break the bank. Overall, a surprisingly enjoyable beer and another standout California IPA.

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a standard tulip glass...

A - Pours a clear golden orange, with a 1 finger off-white head. Very nice lacing as it fades.

S - Juicy mangos and apricots. More fruity than piney.

T/M - Clean, crisp bitterness that clings to the side of your tongue. I get more of a piney bitterness in the taste, and it stays. Medium mouthfeel, perfect carbonation.

O - I'm so glad Green Flash finally distributes to Las Vegas. They make amazingly delicious IPAs, and this one is no different.
