This was served showing off a great golden glow with a nice full head, and it left big rings of lace.
Sticky resin dominates the smell along with light citrus. However the taste, while quality, is not my favorite. Stacks of bitterness dominate without all the ancillary hop flavors that I know and love. This tastes like what happens when I cook and reduce an IPA too much for the rest of the recipe. Bitterness is great, but not when it is standing alone. I suppose it is living up to its name of wrecking palates, and I can appreciate that, but I want more. More citrusy grapefruit, more malt backbone, or more sticky resin, this is a good beer but needs another dimension to become a great one.

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.
