What better to kick off my first beer rating for BA then with something from GreenFlash?

Recent distribution to Michigan has allowed this incredible beer to come our way.

while I did not drink it from a glass, rather straight from the bottle so not able to comment on color/clarity, this met my expectations for a GreenFlash Beer IPA.

Go to beer? Yes.
Great first IPA for an up and coming hop head? yes.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Date: 3/23/14
Location: Halftime Poughkeepsie
Glassware: Tulip
Appearance: Copper to brown. With the carbonation cascading down the side of glass. With next to no carbonation on a pour.
Aromatics: Hops all the way. Some orange as well, a little malt and I don't get much else.
Flavor: The mouthfeel starts very creamy. Then the bitterness of the hops kicks in. Almost no fruit hits my tongue some orange peel though.
Finish: Some orange peel remains, with the bitterness of the hops. A lot of the hops.
Notes: Best by 6/8/14
