12oz bottle served in a tulip glass.
A: Hazy light orange / copper with strong carbonation and a thin, sticky head.
S: A strong pop of hops as soon as the cap is removed. These hops are effervescent and give off strong citrus characters like grapefruit, pineapple, kiwi, and followed by some sulfur and dankness as well.
T: Those New Zealand hops shine through upfront as grapefruit is most noticeable at first, followed by some smoke and pine. There’s an underbelly of malty biscuits that help sweeten up the finish.
M: An explosion of flavors that really comes to life because of the carbonation. The sticky resin in the aftertaste is not overpowering nor overdrying.
O: Overall, this is a great beer, although not too different from some many single or double IPAs in my opinion. The most noticeable differences were in the aroma, which was like a genie in the bottle begging to be let out, and the mouthfeel, which did not have an overdrying effect. A strong effort by Green Flash, but not a better product then their West Coast or Palate Wrecker.

Lightly colored, a pale fawn hue. Filtered with such purity that, were you to fill the ocean with this stuff, you’d probably be able to see clear to the bottom. Trips to the beach would also be a lot more interesting.
A rich, sticky aroma, so pungent it’s almost vinegary. Fresh-cut grass, orange blossom and black pepper quickly give way to fruitier notes like passion fruit.
flavor is deceptively sweet. Malt provides a subtle caramel note and simple syrup-style sugars, but most of the saccharine flavors seem to come from the hops, as pine and mint are replaced with tangerine, pineapple and Juicyfruit gum. Very pungent -- you can feel the heaviness of the alcohol and the hop oils.
Medium-bodied, a little heavy with alcohol. You can feel the hop oils on the tongue. mild carbonation.
Too tasty and drinkable for its own good.
