Poured from a 22-ounce bomber into a BBC pint glass.

A: Golden, murky yellow amber color with a tinge of orange and some degree of clarity despite the chilled haze and yeast. A two-finger head of ivory foam forms a creamy cap of carbonation that sticks around and leaves some nice lacing.

S: Like opening a bag of pelletized hops, this DIPA has the aroma of orange rinds, musty grapefruit and granulated hop reins.

T: Full on juicy malt flavor through mid-palate with a rush of bright, citrusy malts, lush grapefruit and oranges, floral and bitter herbal hops and a huge biscuity backbone. The hops take over the show in quick fashion and usher the finish through to a bitter, chewy and burning herbal citrus aftertaste.

M: Full-bodied, relatively clean but still maintaining a bit of chewiness and herbal, spicy hop sting.

O: A very nice, west-coast stylized DIPA that's a hop onslaught without being a burning, bitter hot mess. The 9.4% ABV is there, but so is a plethora of juicy malts and musty hop notes to chew on. Attention to detail and controlled chaos has me thinking Green Flash is the best of Sierra Nevada and Stone combined; a hop-centric's sleeper DIPA.
