Growler filled at the brewery on 04/01/11.
A: Pours a clear but much darker pale ale like that of Stonebrew's pale. Picks up a nice orangish-copper hue when held up to light. A 2-in choppy off-white head formed that subsided rather quickly and held only a small amount of lacing.
S: A real nice upfront nose of big citrus, candied fruit and sweet pine aromas. I really couldnt pick up much beyond that until the beer sat for a bit and some caramel maltiness started to come through a little.
T: Great citrus and candy-fruit hop flavors present with a nice mellow bitterness on the palate. Very subdued sweet caramel and maltiness does come through towards the end keeping this beer nicely balanced. Alcohol barely present. Finishes quite nice.
*I must note that I picked up a distinct metallic off-flavor that I have not experienced with this brew or brewery before and am a little perplexed. Having had this before I would have given a higher taste score based on memory. may have to revisit this review again.
M: Perfect on the palate - mildly sweet not too sticky on the tongue. Finishes a little dry with a nice clean refreshing crispness.
D: Outstanding drinkability. A well balanced, nicely hopped, lower ABV pale. This is quite a nice session beer in my opinion.
Damn I wish they bottled this stuff! You know IMHO I think every brewery should have a nice hoppy lower abv sessionable pale. I would consider it a true testament of a good craft brewer. And a real nice job here by Green Flash. Again I must note that I picked up a distinct metallic off-flavor that I have not experienced with this brew or brewery before and am a little perplexed. Perhaps it was a new cap for my growler or the GreenFlash location move is causing some quality issues. (I read some threads noting the same with WestCoast)
Having had this brew many times before I would have given a higher taste score based on memory. May definitely have to revisit this review again. Even considering, still a really refreshingly hoppy pale ale that I could drink all day long.

As a Green Flash fan (I think Palate Wrecker is amazing), I sought this because I had heard that it was more of an IPA than an APA, and I do like my hops. Well, it turned out to be neither a great IPA or APA. There are aromas in the nose and flavors on the tongue consistent with an IPA, particularly citrus flavors, but aside from general bitterness, this thing was disappointment and really "bland"--a word I never thought I'd use in a Green Flash review. It doesn't have the overly sweet caramel malt that turns me off from some APAs, but this just doesn't have much going on. The bartender tried to warn me....

The aroma of a great double IPA actually. Taste is juicy with grapefruit-like bitterness, mild caramel malt in the background. Not a pale ale for beginners but extremely delicious and nicely hopped. Very nice, very drinkable. More like an IPA. Highly recommened
