Great beer. Poured a dark copper orange into a 16 ounce pint style glass. The smell was not overly distinctive but you could smell some of the hops. The taste was very strong complex hop flavors. Left good lacing on the glass. There was not any lingering after taste. Had four on tap and subsequently bought two in bottles. The bottles paled by comparison but the draft was a top quality IPA. Stumbled on this beer when my local favorite beer place switched out the WEST Coast IPA with this one day. Discovered the ABV after the fourth beer.

Why I love this beer:

I love how the beer slowly changes character as you drink it and it starts warming slightly. How it goes from a crisp, almost unbalanced hoppiness only to evolve into a delicious biscuity presence toward the end. And how I can continue to recycle the sticky hops flavor from tongue to nose long after the liquid has been swallowed. I have fallen in love with this beer. Most definitely on my top 5 list.

Thank you, Green Flash!

From my tasting notes: The beautiful deep amber brew gave off a gorgeous aroma of sweet grapefruit and floral hops and was a wonderful smelling IPA. The taste was aggressively hoppy with a great blend of citrus, dank and piney hop flavors to make it a perfect Hop Bomb. While it covered my palate with a hoppy resinous residue it was surprisingly drinkable and an enormously enjoyable Double IPA. In short, I loved this beer.

A: poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass, copper amber colored with a huge fluffy off white head that lingers leaving good lacing, clear

S: fruity aromas of pineapple, orange, grapefruit, papaya, it literally smells like you just opened a can of tropical mixed fruit salad, citrus hops

T: pineapple and grapefruit up front, malt comes out in middle with a smooth caramel sweetness, finish is a hop explosion of grapefruit peel and pine resin

M: thick and creamy, alcohol makes itself well known, correct carbonation

O: buy it if you find it, the smell alone makes this a fantastic beer, let it warm for the flavors to fully develop
