2.78/5 rDev -32%
Served on-draught into a Newcastle glass at 1739 Public House in Los Feliz, California. Reviewed from notes. Expectations were above average given the brewery.
A: Pours a beige colour two finger head, somewhat thin, with no real cream and of typical retention. Colour is a hazy ruby-copper. No yeast particles are visible. No bubbl show.
Sm: Citrus and floral hops, some pine, and clean malts. Some light toasted character. An average strength aroma.
T: Floral hops, with off-putting bitterness towards the climax. Clean malts form the foundation. Little citrus; not enough to make it refreshing. A bit stale on the finish. Simple and imbalanced. A poor IPA. Not at all subtle.
Mf: Dreadfully thin; unable to support the flavours. Nicely crisp, though. A bit overcarbonated. Smoothness is off.
Dr: Drinkable but unremarkable for the style. Hides its ABV well. A middling, average effort from Green Flash. Enjoyable enough I guess, but priced quite high at $6.75. I wouldn't get this again.

On tap at Kickbacks in Jax. Poured into a snifter. Light orange in color, good clarity. Oily, clear lacing. Fluffy, off-white head. Aroma is citrusy...tangerine, orange, apricot. Mild sweetness. Taste is nicely bittered, grapefruit now enters the fruit salad. Mild sweetness and alcohol lightly on the back end. Very drinkable, considering the high abv. Very delicious, insane, great beer.

Bottle poured into a tulip glass
Bottle of unknown date (Thanks Green Flash) from Binny's Schaumburg.
Pours an orangish gold color with a robust white head that tends to linger.
Smell is piney with hints of citrus.
Taste is dominated by the pine with a hint of a citrus finish. A odd finish that is almost an earthy taste.
Having tried the original IPA I was a bit underwhelmed. Due to the lack of bottle dating I don't know how great a candidate this beer was but that is how it will always be with them.
Not something I would revisit.

Will pour a five+ finger off-white head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Crystal clear light amber color. Good carbonation and light-medium bodied. Grapefruit nose and flavor is grapefruit hops and almost enough malt to balance. Light bitter aftertaste. $7.59 for a 22oz bottle from Glen Beverage Glen, NH.
