This is another Green Flash that must come from 22 or tap. In this case, 22 into tulip. Deep orange color with a very beige, off white (what, eggshell?) head that compacts to half finger and holds. The aroma is big citrus with some resinous stuff in there for good measure. The flavor is just a deep and sustained citrus hit that gets an add on of earthy pine across the palate, with a nice Simcoe bitter hit to round out the pine in the finish. This is a top-shelf DIPA/IIPA, especially when you need sticky hoppy.

One of Green Flash's best offerings. It lives up to the name with big bitter hops that leave your mouth dry and refreshed from the bitter hops. Big tropical notes in the aroma and taste. Not overly malty. A nice sweetness from the malts.
