look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Got a 22oz bomber at a local bar. It pours 2 fingers of off-white head. The head has a good retention and leaves generous lacing as it slowly settles down. The beer is golden orange in color and is slightly hazy.

S - Heavy floral hops smell. Also mixed in there is citrus and grapefruit. Great smell.

M - A light-medium bodied beer with a nice smooth feeling to it and good carbonation.

T - It starts out with a sweeter malty flavor, but is quickly overtaken by the hops. The hops are present throughout but deliver a knock out punch at the end, leaving plenty of bitterness and a dry mouth. A combination of citrus, and piny hops make up the hop bomb. The alcohol is well hidden.

Another great beer for the hops lovers. Even though the hops tip the flavor balance it still remains very drinkable. Have to be careful with this one because of it's high alcohol content. I would definitely recommend it to others. This is my second Green Flash beer and I must say both have been amazing. I look forward to more from this brewery.
