I've liked a number of Green Flash offerings, so when I saw this 22 oz. for $7 at TW I had to give it a try.
A - light copper color with a fairly creamy head.
S - more citrus (grapefruit and lemon) than pine. This one really whets the appetite.
T - a hint of orange juice followed by piney, bitter notes. Unfortunately it falls off into a medicinal/"rubbery" flavor. I expected more warm alcohol, but was quickly thrown by the "off" flavors I hadn't experienced to date.
M - nice consistency for such a high alcohol DIPA/IIPA.
Drinkability - I couldn't do it. Rarely do I pour out a beer, but considering the odd flavors imparted after such a promising start, even the benefit of the doubt couldn't save this Imperial.
