Ordered a pint of this at El Take It Easy in San Diego's North Park neighborhood last night.
Served in a nonic.
Appearance: An inch of thick, off-white fluff sits atop a lightly hazed, golden body. Head retention proved to be pretty spectacular, and the lacing looked great to boot: sticky, cobweb-like lace all the way down.
Smell: Mango, pineapple, and tangerine all come to mind immediately; this has a really floral, fruity nose. Dry pine, dirt, and faint caramel play secondary roles. I don't think I've ever detected so much late-addition hopping in a pale.
Taste: Pine resin and caramel are easy to pick out, and the same goes for pineapple. Tangy citrus and bread dough are more subtle. Bitterness is off the charts for a pale: strong and lingering; I'd assume this is right around 60 IBUs.
Mouthfeel: Full-bodied, aggressively bitter, and prickly with tons of mouth coating. Moderate carbonation. Feels a lot more like an IPA - very similar to GF West Coast IPA, in fact - than a pale ale.
Overall: If you like Green Flash's West Coast IPA, you'll love this one - it seemed like the same beer with extra late hop additions. Big and bold for a pale but certainly enjoyable, especially if you're on a hop kick.
Serving type: on-tap

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
