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.
