On tap into a mason jar @ Chuck's, Seattle. Pours a slightly hazy orange w/ a thin head attributable to the pour.

Aroma is tropical and juicy, clean and hoppy.

Taste is likewise juicy and tropical with lots of orange and some grapefruit. Sharply bitter finish. ABV hidden well.

Mouthfeel is medium-bodied and clean, drinkable.

Overall a very solid DIPA from Green Flash. I much prefer this to their regular IPA and Palate Wrecker.

The beer has comes in an amber/orange color.

The aroma is peachy, grapefruit, and citrus aroma and very dank.

The flavor is hugely peach, grapefruit with a slight pine dryness. It’s very juicy with its hop character. There is a bready sweet malt to finish it out.

The body is medium/light to make it really drinkable.

The beer is very smooth, easy drinking, yet quite complex. I’m really surprised by how well this beer held up because it was bottled November 2012 when I had this. I’ve had two of the same batch, and despite it being over 6 months, the hops still hold. I didn’t really get any “old” hop flavors.

This one really blew me away and is going up there with my favorite Double IPAs. This is underrated in my mind and I really recommend it.
