The pour was great ( I poured it ). Medium head with sticky lacing.
Not the strongest scent, but it did notice the citra coming through as it warmed up. Straight out of the tap I wouldn't have scored it so high, but the second half is where the points added up.
The taste of this session beer is where it shines. Hard to explain, but it is perfect the way it is. The hops are the star and I think the alcohol would actually make it worse.
This is what I have come to expect from Green Flash. The mouth-raping forest of piney hops is why I truly love West Coast Pale's & IPA's.

I was poured this both on DRAFT and on CASK in a standard pint glass. I preferred the cask version. Anyway...
Looks nice and smells like a typical APA, but the taste was a little too bitter for me. Still, it exhibited nice qualities in smell and taste. Low ABV means they could have really took advantage of showcasing the taste - but I feel it's lacking a bit.
Not sure I'd order this again, as I found it "average." Actually, I was hoping it would be closer to Kern River's "Citra," but it fell flat.
