3.9/5  rDev -6.5%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

App: A bright peach color with an eggshell head that develops a good head with decent lacing.

Nose: Fresh hops, apricot, clean and strong.

Taste: Crisp, which fades to syrupy, big hoppy profile. Grapefruit, apricot, lots of citrus and green.

Notes: Very clear hop profile in the nose and taste. Southern California is the land of "palate wreckers", so this does not stand up to the stated style. It would make for a great IPA, but not an imperial or double.

Serving type: bottle

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.
