I wasn't too impressed with Green Flash's other offerings but nevertheless decided to give this one a shot. Boy, am I glad that I did. Here goes:

A: Excellent. Pours an amber-orange that's not exactly clear, but it produces a great, robust head with tons of lacing. Head lingers for minutes and is quite fluffy.

S: No complaints here either. Lots of Pacific NW hops; almost no malt is detectable. Lots of grapefruit, orange and lemon peel.

T: Again, quite impressive. Very robust hop presence and aftertaste. Grapefruit and lemon fill the palate and linger on long after consumption. Couldn't ask for anything more in terms of hops. There's somewhat of an amber malt taste that's present at the forefront, but this quickly gives way to hops.

M: Very rich and full-bodied. Not creamy like a stout but lies heavily on the tongue. Tons of carbonation as well

O: An excellent beer. It was well worth the 3-dollar price. I only wish that I had gotten another bottle.
