3.9/5 rDev -4.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: Hazy, dark golden color. Light head with some lacing.
Smell: Dominant pine and herbal notes.
Taste: Strong herbal pine flavor with some grapefruit and other citrus notes. Lingering bitterness in the finish.
Mouthfeel: Effervescent, medium body.
Overall: This beer has a nice complexity and mouth-feel to it, and the pine flavor is distinctive. But while there was some malty sweetness to balance the pine and hops, I found the finish really bitter.
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.
