A - Yellow-orange. I could care less about appearance, so unless it's really beautiful or really ugly, it will get the average of the other ratings. Who drinks a beer for appearance anyway?
S - Citrus and pine. They did not cheap out on high quality hops for the late additions and dry hopping.
T - The citrus and pine cuts through amazingly well for a beer with an ABV this high. It does not have that high ABV taste and the malt is very light for a beer with this high of an ABV.
M - Exceptionally smooth for a beer with an ABV this high.
O - I had this at the Amsterdam Ale house in NYC, only $6 for a pint. The best beer I had that day.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured from 22 oz bomber into Chimay Chalice
A: Turn signal amber. Turn signal is slightly aged with this hazy oxidized turn signal vibe it puts off. White head that pours a finger and stays around half that throughout. Lacing is considerable.
S: Floral hops. Grass. Citrus. Malt.
T: Floral. No hop bite that is in some IPAs. EXCELLENT. I don't believe I have had a better IPA. I might have bitten into a mellow hop pellet but I don't know it. It is delicious. Citrus. Lemon whites. Light alcohol. Full marks.
M: Medium to full bodied for style. Carbonation is adequate. Smooth, filling. The lack of burn from alcohol is absolutely refreshing.
O: May not have had a better IIPA. Green Flash has impressed me before; they only continue to impress.

Purchased at Whole Foods pursuant to beer steward label stating, "beat Pliny in blind in-store taste test." A misrepresentation of sorts. A deep amber appearance. The scent is slightly off, as if the hops used were not very fresh. Great taste but a little flat. Acceptable mouth feel but lacking interesting spices or notes. An excellent imperial IPA, but not likely to purchase again.
