22 ounce bomber poured into a pint glass. My 2nd Green Flash beer (Hop Head Red) since they are started distributing here within the last month.
A - Yellow/orange with very soapy thick white 1 1/2 finger head... leaving significant lacing. Very great looking beer!
S - A hopheads delight. Very reminiscent of other west-coast IPA's, but being an imperial, it's more in your face. No surprise that there's tons of citrus / grapefruit / pine. Not much more than that.
T & M - Lots of bitter hops. Followed up by some malt, but the hops definitely is the most prevalent here. Medium to full body with decent carbonation. Alcohol nicely hidden considered it's 9.4%. This one sneaks up on you.
Overall - Granted, I love this style and am a hophead so I give it high marks. It's not my favorite DIPA, but it's up there. I would highly recommend it.
