I'm little late to the game on actually setting up and account here and reviewing, but I've been visiting and reading reviews on this site for years now.
Green Flash is one of my favorite brewing companies so I figured this would be a good beer to start with. I've had it both on tap and from a bottle poured into a snifter.
A: Copper. Slightly cloudy. Actually, cloudier than expected.
S: Fruity. Very fruity. Hints of banana.
T: Hoppy. But, for it being 9.5% it hides it very well.
M: Syrupy. I realize most DIPAs are and it's the only drawback for me. I enjoy the bitter sting of a dry IPA.
O: if you don't enjoy hops... Beware. This beer is truly a work of art, like most of their brews.
Serving type: on-tap

Had it on tap at The Crow's Nest in johnstown
A: darker than normal pale ale. Same coloration of yuengling. Pretty clear overall.
S: fruity. Banana and grapefruit. Astringency that is very welcome. Pungent, almost smells bitter.
T: holy crap the hops. Sooo bitter, but so tasty. Citrusy to almost a fault. This beer legitimately will wreck your palate. This beer is not for the faint of heart when it comes to hops. I would compare to a Sierra Nevada hoptimum.
M: stuff like this is normally a little heavier, but it's pretty crisp. The body is a real surprise considering the overpowering nature of the beer
If you like hops, you must try it. If you like malt, God bless, crack one open, take a sip, and pass it on to your hop head friends

22oz Bomber to Pint Glass
A - Light copper/amber with rich tan head. Some lacing on the glass.
S - Hop citrus punch! Mild alcohol bite to the nose. Somewhat piney.
T - Hop bomb for sure. Grapefruit all the way.
M - Just enough carbonation and smooth on the palate. Excellent balance.
O - I would definitely buy this one again. Very well balanced for DIPA. Not too much alcohol in the taste and really is smooth once it warms up a bit. Very enjoyable.
Serving type: bottle
