It's very dark in here, but it looks hazy gold/amber. Head and lacing looks good.

Sprite white grapefruit and floral aromas. Some papaya in the mix. Not super tropical, but it has a vibe of coastal fruit trees. Light and hoppy.

Crispy hoppy with mintiness and grapefruit and tropical fruits. Papaya and starfruit. Very dry, all things considered. Very bold in its hoppiness, but it doesn't disappoint in drinkability. Medium-light and crisp. Rather nice, really, but I do just love that Green Flash hoppiness.

On-tap 10/31/2013 at Track 84 in Warwick, RI, served in a tulip glass.

A: The beer is a deep amber color, with a short off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains a nice blend of fruity citrus, floral hops and caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out with a piney burst of hops bitterness followed by some citrus and caramel sweetness. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy and creates a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet and slightly hoppy.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, good kick, good representation of style, this is a very solid IPA to drink for a long time.
