Opens with a solid whoosh!

Pours a light gold with some effervescence & 3 fingers of pearl colored head. Very nice head retention & lacing (4.75)

S: Catty, dank, piney & grassy (4.75)

T: Grassy, citrusy, piney with light malty sweetness up front, some minty notes as well. Dryness, pine & cattiness as this warms, leafy hops as well. Finishes crisp, dry, grassy & catty (4.75)

MF: Medium bodied, crisp carbonation, good balance (4.5)

Drinks very easy, a nice session IPA. Green Flash: You did yourself proud with this one! Maybe the best session IPA I've had! (4.75)

Pours a slightly cloudy medium dark gold. There's a creamy-ish white head that doesn't last long but manages to provide some fine (in size) soapy lacing. The aroma is spectacular, with the promised citrus and fruit delivering great depth. Unfortunately it doesn't come across as well in the taste. It is still quite good, but it doesn't have quite the same depth, possibly due to the lighter malt profile. It would be an interesting brewing experiment. The body is solid. The beer is very good, it's just for me the flavor is uni-dimensional.

A - Crisp pilsnerish tan color. 1 finger of head and sticky lace left all over the glass. Looks like a tasty IPA for sure

A - Grapefruit, citra hops

T - Huge grapefruit taste, extremely tasty for a light IPA.

M - Medium bodies and well carbonated

O - One of the better session IPA's I have had for sure. Green Flash never disappoints!
