Poured out a clear deep amber with a big creamy white head. There is great retention and nice sticky lacing. The aroma is big citrus hops, with distinct grapefruit notes, and hints of caramel malt in the background. The taste is also big hops, but splendidly balanced against the malt backbone. The mouthfeel is a little thinner than the taste and aroma indicated but it's not at all thin or watery. A great big DIPA.

The best beer I've tried from Green Flash. Pours a standard amber and has an incredible smell with sweet and hoppy notes. To my surprise and delight, not overpowering at all as its moniker implies. Hoppy, not too heavy, with a strong, direct flavor. Nice aftertaste. One of the best IPAs I've had.
