On tap at Churchill's

A: Golden color with a thin cream colored head.

S: A pretty good amount of citrus hops, but a huge amount of cantaloupe and melon overwhelms it.

T: I really do like Green Flash, but this just wasn't good. Lots of cantaloupe and sweet malt flavors run crazy without anywhere near the hop flavor this beer needs to be balanced.

On tap at Yard House, San Diego, 11/5/11.

A-Pours a clear, pale golden honey. The thin white head leaves thick sheets of lacing.

S-Sweet and citrusy in about equal measure.

T-Sweet malt, sweet and bitter hops with a hint of booziness. A bit lacking in depth of flavor for the ABV.

M-Medium bodied, bitterness lingers.

O-A nice brew. A bit short on flavor and quite high in alcohol.

Bottled On: 08/27/13

A: Pours a deep golden orange color with 2 fingers of head that slowly fades down to a chunky cap that leaves some nice lacing

S: Very hoppy. Mostly citrus and tropical fruit with a hint of pine. Decent malt presence that is lightly bready, but the hops are the main focus

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with a big rush of tropical and citrus hop notes balanced nicely by a lightly sweet caramel malt presence. Not really all that bitter. Some pine comes in towards the end. Alcohol almost unnoticeable. Finishes lightly bitter with a lingering tropical fruit note

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Fairly oily and slick

O: A great TIPA with an almost overwhelming hop presence that is actually quite laid back in terms of bitterness. The malts balance very nicely but make sure to give way to the hops. Surprisingly drinkable for 10.1%, but it sneaks up fairly quickly. Recommended
