4.29/5 rDev +3.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Glass Used: Snifter
Appearance: Deep orange-gold with a dense fluffy white head.
Smell: Sweet fruit - pineapple, lemon, orange & grapefruit is in abundance here, along with nice floral sweet honey and piney hop aroma. I get bready malts here as well. This is a intense smelling beer.
Taste: Malty caramel arrives first but gets pushed aside as the big citrus and pine resin flavors bulldoze to center stage. A long bitter finish.
Mouthfeel:Sticky and tacky feeling that totally coats the mouth and tongue. Creamy notes are there to ease the hops along to the finish.
Overall: The is a fantastically bitter double IPA. While the hoppy bitterness is huge, the malt does a very good job pulling back on their reins. I can only imagine how much more intense this would be if the malt profile was smaller. Great job Green Flash!
Serving type: bottle
