4.05/5  rDev -0.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Hazy orange-gold, good head.

Smell: Piney, grapefruit rind, underlying sweetness.

Taste: Bitter first, then a little caramel, then back to bitter. Solid citrus bitter throughout with a lasting bitter finish.

Overall: This fits my personal definition of a west coast double IPA. Tongue-bruising bitterness throughout with not as strong of a malt/sweet backbone. Hits the spot for a hop bomb.

3.99/5  rDev -2.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Bomber into a pint glass. Best by 3/1/14.

A: Pours a cloudy deep orange with a fluffy off-white head. Good retention and excellent lacing.

S: Slight citrus, mostly grapefruit.

T: Piney with a bitter drying finish. And I mean that in the best way. The hops are quick, but not abrasive. The bitterness lingers and dries in a way that invites repeated tastings.

M: Medium mouthfeel. Good carbonation.

O: Another winner from Green Flash. Not as hop-forward as Palate Wrecker or Green Bullet, but finishes a bit smoother. The 9.4% ABV is well-hidden behind the piney dryness.

3.25/5  rDev -20.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

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.

3.79/5  rDev -7.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Best by 3/17/14 labeled on the neck of bottle. 22oz bottle poured into a tulip. Pours golden with a glowing haze; fluffy white head that fades and leaves great retention and solid lacing. The aromas are very similar to Green Bullet, in my opinion. Lots of rubber. Some onion and garlic. Some grapefruit. The flavors have a solid bitterness to it. Lots of pine needles. More onion and garlic. This isn't a super fruity example of the style, although there are some citrus notes along with some underlying tropical notes. More grapefruit. Some lime. Even some pineapple in the mix. Malts seem to really take a backseat. Mouthfeel is full-bodied with active carbonation. It's smooth. Barely any hints of alcohol. This makes a nice sipper.

This is a unique take on the style. I personally like Palate Wrecker and Green Bullet more than this. It has alot of similarities with Green Bullet. The craftsmanship is definitely there, just like with all Green Flash beers. This is good stuff, but nothing overly exciting.

Christmas gift ...

Hazy light orange color with 1/2 finger of paper white head. Light retention. Decent, but thin lace.

Nose is a hops smorgasbord. Pine, grass, herbal, floral, and even a light tropical fruit component. Lots to enjoy here.

Taste is more tropical fruit with everything else appearing as an encore. Very hot, with significant hop esters. This is a big IPA.

Thin feel. This really is all about the hops.

Overall, one to try. So hop forward, may be difficult to go back to.

4.5/5  rDev +10.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from their bomber of this ale...

Appearance - Pours a quick finger of golden eggshell foam, body is a lightly hazed bright golden orange - just a beautiful ale, leaves beatiful webbed rings after each quaff.

Smell - Citrus of orange and lemon, tropical fruits of mango and papaya, grapefruit, whiff of pine, slight vanilla carmel, smells fantastic!

Taste - Oh my goodness the hops! Much like the nose, and so balanced and complex - this starts with a wonderful combination of citrus of oranges and ruby red grapefruit, I also get light unsweetened mango and papaya, this is accompanied by some huge floral hop flavors, near the end of the sip I get bittering dryness of peach pits and grapefruit pith, and finishing with dried citrus rinds and a touch of pine. No alcohol here whatsoever, perfectly hidden - all of this rides a whiff of malt backbone, imparting a flavor like a nearly unsweetened bullseye (carmel with a vanilla center) - this is not a sweet DIPA by any means, but provides just enough sweetness to counter the intense citrus and floral hops.

Mouthfeel - Medium mouthfeel, the flavors are bold and fill the mouth. The carb is medium but very soft and smooth, like a gentle foam, with some wonderful bright edges at the back and sides of the tongue. Finishes nearly clean and somewhat dry, begging another quaff...

Overall - My first thought was that this could be Arctic Panzer if I were blindfolded, just add a bit of the fruitiness of Dreadnaught w/out the sweetness - the complexity and balance here are nearly perfect. At $5.49 a bomber I will pick this one up every time I see it. If you like your DIPA's on the dry bitter side, not sweet and nearly puckering, then this is a must try - two thumbs way up for me :)

I could break this down further... but here is the Reader's Digest version.

For $6.99 and sometimes $5.99 here in San Diego, this IIPA/DIPA is one of the best.

Consistent, skunky smell, crazy hop taste with a strong pine and grapefruit.

For those reading this and preparing to taste, be sure to review.

4.15/5  rDev +1.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Poured into a rinsed chalice from the bottle. Best by 3/1/2014

A: slightly hazy golden hued with a little activity. Shallow head to thin white ring.

S: Citrus, musty lemons. Biscuity malts. Bitter orange. Some lemon grass notes.

T: Bitter citrus, toasty malts. It's very smooth and lively and complex citrus blend. Imperial? This is different. Not as big as Imperial implies normally, but very intense and complex without being smack-you-over-the-head,

M: Medium filling. Creamy, oily....and inviting. This is Imperial? really? So damn smooth. This is a very nice bitter & multi-layer complex citrus finish, with toasty malts bringing a support structure.

O: I really like this. Complex. Like it muchly.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a Surly Darkness chalice. Bottle says best by 03/01/14.

Appearance: Pours a bright and clear copper golden orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. Solid two fingers of white head that slowly fade into a thin creamy layer. Leaves a lot of creamy lacing around the glass.

Smell: A big and juicy hop forward aroma with big hints of citrus and piney hops. Upfront scent of citrus hops with hints of grapefruit, orange peel, mango, pineapple, apricot, tangerine, lemon, and papaya. Big herbal and grassy hop presence with a big scent of dank pine resin. Soft pale malt background with hints of grains, caramel, cracker, and yeast. Very hop dominate. A very good West Coast aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a juicy, oily, and bitter hop forward taste with big notes of citrus and pine. Big citrus hop presence upfront with notes of orange pulp, grapefruit, mango, pineapple, apricot, lemon, tangerine, and slight papaya. Big taste of herbal, earthy, and grassy hops with lots of oily pine resin. Background presence of pale malt with notes of grains, cracker, yeast, and caramel. A very good juicy West Coast IPA taste.

Mouthfeel: Big full body with a moderate amount of carbonation. Very oily, juicy, and bitter. Very drying. Alcohol heat is hidden behind the hop assault.

Overall: A very good Imperial IPA. Not for the faint of heart as this is very bitter but a hop head should love it.

A - Crystal clear pale yellow body with nice dense white head. Great retention and lacing.

S - Intense amount of citrus

T - Pine hops upfront with dank earthy malt. Citrus washes in at the end. Strong abv rushes in through the aftertaste.

M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Sticky and resinous

O - Beers like these make it hard for me to enjoy typical IPAs. I love the huge bitterness, and alcohol. Green Flash has been brewing some excellent beer and I'm real glad it makes it out to the east coast.

Poured from a standard pressure-cap bomber into a pint glass in high elevation Kalispell, Mont. Reviewed live. Best by 3/17/14.

A- One-finger white head, light orange body. Sporadic soapy lacing. Low retention. Fairly attractive looking beer.

S- Citrus and hides the high alcoholic content well. Hoppy and surprisingly smooth.

T- Hoppy, citrus and sprucey. High alcohol content is obvious, but not super boozy.

M- Boozy feel, thick and syrupy though. Very little carbonation present.

O- Well above average beer, but not a show-stopper.

3.38/5  rDev -17.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - pours golden brown with a huge oily off white head. The head settles and bubbles like a pancake batter just before you need to turn it over. The head maintains oily and had nice stick through the entire drink.

S - Big hop aroma - citrus, dank, soapy, fruity, resinous weed.

T - Big wet and oily hop blast. This is almost too much of a HOP bomb and not as drinkable as I would prefer. Maybe some of the intricacies are lost on me, but I don't find this to be the most balanced DIPA....It is so dominated by the hops that it doesn't stand a chance to be drinkable.

O - This is the first brew from Greenflash that has disappointed me. I will put this on the "do not try again list".

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

Bomber poured to a tulip glass.

A - Pale amber and quite hazy. Dense, long-lasting head with excellent lacing. Haziness cleared nicely when the beer warmed up.

S - Hops all the way. Fairly complex, with low tangerine and grapefruit, pine and resin, and a major dose of "dank". Very low bready malt underneath.

T - Less complex than aroma. The dank hops really dominate the flavor, with a low citrus hop flavor in the background for interest. Medium-high hop bitterness, with a slightly astringent finish. Low sweet, toasty malt. Low alcohol sweetness.

M - Medium-low body, medium-high carbonation. Low astringency. Low alcohol warmth, with a dry finish.

O - The dank hops (summit?) are really intense, especially in the flavor. I'd like more hop complexity. Very hop forward, even for an IIPA. A touch more malt balance would be appreciated. Unique example of the style.

Review taken in mid September 2013. 1st time ever having this offering from Green Flash.

Green Flash style brown bomber. Just a larger bottle of their unique 12 oz bottle. Very awesome bottles Green Flash has these days. Really nothing like it in American brewing. I enjoy their bottle shape and array of simple logos with each brew having a specific colored label. Imperial India Pale ale's label color is of a yellow color. Poured this into a Stemmed Tulip/Belgian style tulip glass.

A - pours a bright copperish color with a bright brass orange being the base color. A nice head sits quite large after the pour and settles into a sturdy ring of lace leaving good, slow moving stick to the glass.

S - a solid display of malt in the nose. Pine and citrus hops make for a fairly balanced aroma. A hint of fruit and a whiff of Very fresh dank hoppy character on the nose. A bit of peppery spice notes in the background.

T - sweet malt and citrus hop notes get things started. Quickly following is a pine like hop bitterness that shows off its massive hop bill. A very Green Flash style peppery spice note hits toward the finish. Again, a very fresh tasting double. Dank and resinous hop flavor with some hop spices and pepper. A hop head treat! Lovely.

M - good feel and coating effect. Texture and thickness are spot on to the brewery's styand perfect for dipa style in general. Taste and feel aren't quite as balanced as the nose, and the abv does hit you all the whole letting you know it. But this is a hop affair. I have no doubt this is what Green Flash is going for here. A real stud among the heavy hitters on the hop side of the beer world.

O - Green Flash have a very well crafted ale in Imperial India Pale Ale. It's brilliantly bitter and almost rough. But it warms the belly and gives our taste buds a real hop loaded ride to ibu city. This was a rare find for us here at home. One of the Green Flash brews that don't come around as often as a few of the others do, but when it does I will be grabbing a bottle. This thing sure is tasty.

this is a hardcore hop-head's IPA. i haven't had it in ages --- and i was blown away when i brought the glass to my nose this evening.

pours an opaque copper with a fantastic head retention --- major stickies on the glass. aroma is OUTSTANDING ++! major resinous pineapple hop presence, tropical with a hint of vanilla and grassy malt sensations.

the taste is crazy bitter, 100 ibu type stuff. very fresh tasting... very dry and brimming with citrus --- very well rounded, you get a big hit of bitterness and the aroma but it mellows nicely after you swallow -- not actually a palate wrecker - there are many lesser beers that will really ruin you. this is so well made, the drink is excellent.

more aggressive than a PTE or Double Jack, but this beer is right there. top 3 west coast IIPA easy.

650ml bottle.

Appearance - Pours a cloudy amber colour with two fingers of creamy white head.

Smell - Piney hops, citrus and tropical fruit, sweet caramel malts.

Taste - Nice punch of piney hops and citrus fruit/peel. Good use of caramel-like malts to balance out the bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Overall - A good and balanced Imperial IPA that stays true to the style. Really happy that there is a solid malt backbone to support the bitterness.

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Imperial Pint.

Appearance: Barely hazy gold with thick, sticky white head and lacing.

Smell: Sweet and bitter mix of grapefruit, guava, caramel and bread.

Taste: Somewhat sweet with a malt core of bread and caramel, with sticky hop layers of grapefruit, tangerine and guava. Slightly spicy as well on the finish, with light bitterness. Balanced mix of sweet, dry, bitter and tart.

Feel: Full, creamy body with restrained carbonation. Dry finish.

Overall: A flavorful, balanced DIPA that is just a trifle too sickly sweet to be a top echelon example of the style.

22 oz bottle was poured into a snifter.

Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a pale orange color with great clarity and slow moving bubbles coming up through the glass. Super nice lacing on the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Strong resiny piney aroma, caramel, bready, floral, citrus, and a little alcohol.

Taste: Resiny pine, tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, caramel and bready malts, and a little warm alcohol.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, a little boozy, a little chewy, low to medium carbonation, medium bodied, a nice sipper, and extremely drinkable. Scary. Hoppy and balanced.

Overall: For a DIPA, this is solid and extremely balanced. I love it so much that the replay system is not working in Atlanta. Patriots are soaring high in Atlanta and that includes a Mulligan too.

3.98/5  rDev -2.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Appearance 4.0: Beautiful, opaque golden color. Nice 1/2" head. Excellent lacing.

Smell 3.75: Nice bouquet, but not as hop-forward as one might expect. Also, there is a very pleasant butterscotch/ caramel scent in here that is beguiling.

Taste 4.00: Front is sweet and has a very slight alkaline hint. Middle is big but balanced and this is where a wave of hop-madness assaults the taste-buds. Citrus, pine, bitter, alkaline, chlorophyll...just about any hop taste you can think of. Also a big hit of sweet malt at this taste level. Finish is smooth and the tastes from the middle quickly fade away here into a short and refreshing aftertaste that is (of course) hop-focused.

Mouthfeel 4.25: Mouthfeel is actually one of the best parts of this beer and does an excellent job rounding out the various (and varied) hop assaults.

Overall 4.00: Very good Imperial IPA that is as big as you would think and also features an excellent balance of malt and hop. Not the best IPA on the planet, but it is certainly worthy of the appellation "outstanding." Be aware: this is an over-the-top beer alcohol wise, so cancel your helicopter flying school field test if you try to down one of these at lunch. Nonetheless, hop-heads should check this one out of they can find it.

Pours a clean golden-amber, with a big head of white foam. Lovely detailed lace, too. Nice presentation.

Nose is definitely a nice citrus, tropical fruit (pineapple) and pine -- strong and hefty already. I can already see this is going to be exquisite.

Taste is heavy, yes, but well-balanced. The pine-tropical hops are dialed way up there, but this one remains easy to drink. The strong ABV isn't even too detectable here. A perfectly solid and standout IPA, well-worth a repeat purchase!

Poured from a 650 ml bottle into a nonic.

A: Light amber hue. Pervasive and continual rising effervescence. Pours a 2 finger, frothy, white head. Settles very slowly. Leaves a very persistent foamy blanket. Spotty, dry, persistent lacing.

S: Pine resin, pine straw, pecans.

T: Hoppy pine with a little sweet agave nectar and grapefruit pith.

M: Full and hearty, however high alcohol is not so apparent. Bitter and flavorful aftertaste lingers on the palate.

D: Sipper... based on character.

Atmosphere is really excellent. Frothy head, persistent blanket, and persistent lacing. Nose is piny with a nutty tone. Hoppy, with touches of sweetness and citrus. Overall, this is a great quaff.

650ml bottle at The Local Pub.

Apperance: Coppery golden colour, hazy, with a nice tan head. Very clear body!

Smell: Aroma was toffee, caramel and bread from the malts used probably. The hops were deffinitely there but no so intense as hopped. hints of pine and maybe pineapple.

Taste: The taste was a little bitter with tropical fruits (maybe peach?) while the aftertaste was pure caramel, again from the big malts used. I was hopping a not so balanced beer, but one on the hoppy side.

Apperance; The body was medium to full with average to high carbonartion.

Overall: not the best DIPA I ever had, but a nice one nontheless. i was hoping for more hops, but as it seems I tend to like Green Flash's Porter-Stous rather that their IPAs.

Had been meaning to try this for some time now but my quest for a relatively fresh bottle had been unsuccessful. Alas, found some about 6 weeks old and for $5.99 a bomber, I figured it was worth a try, a good decision in the end. This was an interesting brew, pours a clean deep golden colour with a small head. The aroma is a little weird, lots going on with distinct pine and citrus notes, coupled with some bready and oniony notes. The summit hop really has a presence in this beer and the taste is initially dominated by this. However, as you work your way through, the flavours become more complex and some tropical fruit (pineapple and peach) come through, couple by plenty of pine and bitterness. The alcohol is very well hidden and the beer extremely well balanced with a light malt backbone; not heavy/syrupy like some big DIPA's. Initially, I wasn't sure what to make of this, but by the time I finished, I was a convert. I could see why some might not be and from experience I have found summit-heavy beers to be not so appealing. Green Flash got this right though, it is extremely well balanced and the flavours actually work very harmoniously. It is one of these beers that keeps you interested from start to finish so very much worth a go. A love it or hate it kind of beer in my opinion.
