I'm little late to the game on actually setting up and account here and reviewing, but I've been visiting and reading reviews on this site for years now.

Green Flash is one of my favorite brewing companies so I figured this would be a good beer to start with. I've had it both on tap and from a bottle poured into a snifter.

A: Copper. Slightly cloudy. Actually, cloudier than expected.

S: Fruity. Very fruity. Hints of banana.

T: Hoppy. But, for it being 9.5% it hides it very well.

M: Syrupy. I realize most DIPAs are and it's the only drawback for me. I enjoy the bitter sting of a dry IPA.

O: if you don't enjoy hops... Beware. This beer is truly a work of art, like most of their brews.
