Notes: Brewed with strains of hops so fresh and new some don't even have a name yet. This beer is loaded with four newer hops including Mosaic, Equinox, #07270, and Meridian as well as the old standbys of Cascade and CTZ. Green Cross IPA is a modern style IPA loaded with citrus and tropical fruit flavors on top of a solid NW malt backbone.

Lots of suspended "debris" in the pour from a 12 oz. can, probably yeast. Will be off-putting to some, but not so much to this occasional home brewer, though I won't want the last sip or 2, which is a waste. Sediment settles to the bottom of the glass and agitates upward with each tilt to sip. Their hops choices fare better in the aroma than on the tastebuds where the bitterness lingers a little too heavily and long. I get the need to pack it with IBUs given the sweetness that still manages to shine through. This isn't a bad IPA but it's not my favorite. Clunky and unbalanced, it tastes experimental rather than perfected. Maybe brewed after a trip to the local "green cross."

Very hazy gold with four fingers of off white head. Rings and swathes of lace as head slowly drops.
Smell is pungent dank tropical fruit with some pine.
Taste is fruity green tropical dank slight pine hop oil resin. Malt is there but subdued.
Mouthfeel is light to medium with good carbonation. Finish is lightly dry and bitter.
Overall a tasty and easy drinking IPA with a good mixture of hops. 58 IBUs.
