Smell is coffee, toffee, chocolate, earthy hops, pine, and some hints of citrus.

Taste starts with some nice expresso toffee flavors and finishes with a huge burst of citrus grapefruit that really lingers on the palate awhile.

Body is medium, plenty of life, a little dry, and easy drinking.

Overall I love it. What I would expect from one of my favorite brewers of hoppy goodness.

Generally not a huge fan of black IPAs, but this is a home run. Fruity, malty, hoppy... Jesus, what more could you want. Green Flash Black IPA converted me into a believer. A well-balanced attack on the senses. Love it. (Granted, it's a sipping beer -- you really don't want to have more than one or, well, two.)
