Pours a not-quite pale yellow with a moderate head. The aroma of hops are enough to clear your sinuses. The first taste is a veritable hop explosion. With most IIPAs, the drinker becomes accustomed to the extreme bitterness as they continue drinking. This is not most IIPAs: every sip from start-to-finish tastes no less bitter than the rest. If not for the perceptible alcohol presence, you'd be hard pressed to find any kind of malt backbone here.

Without a doubt, "Palate Wrecker" is the most accurate beer name ever created. This is an IIPA that extremophiles will love.

Poured out a clear deep amber with a big creamy white head. There is great retention and nice sticky lacing. The aroma is big citrus hops, with distinct grapefruit notes, and hints of caramel malt in the background. The taste is also big hops, but splendidly balanced against the malt backbone. The mouthfeel is a little thinner than the taste and aroma indicated but it's not at all thin or watery. A great big DIPA.

The best beer I've tried from Green Flash. Pours a standard amber and has an incredible smell with sweet and hoppy notes. To my surprise and delight, not overpowering at all as its moniker implies. Hoppy, not too heavy, with a strong, direct flavor. Nice aftertaste. One of the best IPAs I've had.
