Served from a fresh bottle into a Founders Tulip.
A - Beautiful in the glass. Deep to medium amber with a frothy, fluffy bone white head that lasts for a while. Legs for days. Only the slightest bit of haze.
S - I smell this one from 2 feet away. As soon as I popped the cap, a huge citrus grapefruit aroma leaped out. Massive pine notes with a touch of tropical note.
T - Outstanding beer for hopheads. Unless you love hops, steer clear. If you're like me, this one is a clear winner. Massive grapefruit notes with hints of citrusy tropical fruit. Grapefruit is the big flavor here. Dank, delicious hops. There's malt in this?
M - Carbonated very well. I remember seeing yeast at the bottom of West Coast IPA. Is Green Flash still bottle-conditioning? Minimal sediment in this one, but carbonated great. Slightly thick, which works for this beer.
O - Massive, massive hop-bomb of a DIPA. If you want to know what chewing on hop-cones feels like, pick this one up. Highly recommended.

Reasonably fresh bottle with best by date of 7/2/14.
Full on hop aroma with hop oil, citrus, grass, grass.
One inch head and quite clear with amber (brown) body. Decent lacing.
Full hop flavor resembling the aroma with a stronger hop oil presence leaving a bit of distaste for my buds, but it isn't overwhelming or dominating thus allowing the other more enjoyable flavor to show forth. Solid malt body that balances and blends well.
Pretty big and quite enjoyable body with enough carbonation to accent the hops nicely and working well with the richness of the drink.
A solid DIPA. Too much hop oil and probably not quite as complex hop flavors as others. But this one drinks really nicely.
