this is a great beer its a little spendy but worth it.i poured 2 in to my 32oz mug and after finishing had a nice buzz and was ready for bed after the 4th. this is a really strong hoppy beer with a creamy head aromatic head.i wish they would make it in six packs 4 beers is enough but your always left with that feeling of wanting more. i highly recomend trying this delicious brew

Small bottle picked up tonight at the COOP for about $3... Poured into my HotD tulip... Long lasting white head with fantastic lacing atop a clear light orange brew.

Huge resinous hoppiness coats the nose hairs. Piney with some tropical fruit notes... Very west coast.

Huge grapefruit on the palate with a little bit lesser pine.... just enough pale maltiness to deliver the hops... pretty damn bitter.

Super stoked we are getting Green Flash into Boise.

On draft at Churchkey in D.C.

The beer is light golden and clear with a soft white head. The aroma brings a potent dose of hops, light citrus and pine, and alcohol. Upon my first sip I decided this beer is aptly named. Massive hop character does indeed assault the palate. Alcohol presence is rather forward, and steers me clear of a second helping. This is decent, with some nice things happening, but I prefer a more elegant showcase for the hops, instead of being bombarded with an intensely hoppy alcohol bomb. Personal preference perhaps, but I feel this is middle of the road (or a slight step above) for a DIPA today.
