Growler from Northbridge Pig $4.99 blowout sale. Poured into a Dogfish Head IPA glass...
A: Deep, golden orange; thick and creamy, two-finger head of off white foam leaves a good bit of webby lace.
S: Citrus rind; light malt / bread crust; dry aroma.
T: Grapefruit rind; chalky, bitter finish; spicy hops; minimal malt sweetness.
M: Full side of medium; high carbonation; tongue-numbing bitterness.
O: Pretty standard American IPA; bitterness is more dull / muted than bright / fresh - that's the only real knock I have on this beer.

Clear amber color with a white head and some retention. Very dank and resinous aromas, pineapple and grapefruit rind. Same things in the taste; it has some very tropical tastes to it. Medium to light body with a dry finish, medium carbonation. Thanks to Cole for the sample. I hope the regular release Green Flash IPA's are as amazing as this.

Tap @ O'Brien's. Pours orange-gold with a short white head. Strong in the pine and citrus aromas, with a lot of grapefruit. Sweet up front with caramel that gives the grapefruit, oranges, mango flavors a sugary coating. Good, resiny finish. Loved it.

Thanks for opening this with me, Josh!
A decently bitter and mildly citrus-forward IPA. A melange of hops used as opposed to a single hop. Very drinkable, especially on a hot day. I think this probably was quite the impressive IPA in 2008, when it was first brewed, but it doesn't necessarily stand up favorably against San Diego's Alpine or Societe.

2013 reincarnation of Green Flash Surfs Up served on tap at the Secret Stash Bash.
Poured clear, light amber in color, and with a medium and fairly durable head.
Had an attractive and complex hoppy aroma. Medium/high bitterness (IBU = 75) in this hoppy, West Coast style IPA that has limited amount of sweet malts. The hop mix included piney, herbal, citrus and grassy/weedy elements.
Medium body with slightly high carbonation.
O: a rather aggressive hop-lovers IPA.
