Bottle with best by date of December 30, so I believe that means it was packaged June 30, so it's only a little over a month old.

Hops: Simcoe, Citra, Cascade.

Recent market emphasis on the two extreme ends of DIPAs and "session" IPAs has left quite a bit of room in the middle for new entries in the single IPA category, and Soul Style fills the niche perfectly.

As I try this beer for the first time I fire up the computer and see that its BA score is 87. Seriously people? This is a world-class IPA.

This is one of the best new(ish) brews I've tried over the past year, an IPA that manages to be both darkly dank and brightly tropical/citrusy. It is highly drinkable, and has a great long-lasting finish (what some silly people call an "aftertaste") that just dares you to crack open another bottle. It is great straight through from the appetizing aroma, to the palate, which is earthy as well as fruity, to the finish, which is gloriously sticky from hops both in the mouth and in the glass.

An eminently worthy replacement in the single IPA category for Green Flash West Coast IPA, now considered a double.

Enjoying on tap. Just incredible citrus goodness and delightful bitter afterbite. Mellow yet intense hop to grain bill balance. Impressed.

Green Flash nails it again. This should come as no surprise to anyone who has tried their other beers, especially the fantastic Hop Head Red. Soul Style IPA is nice and light feeling, with plenty of citrus and sticky hop flavor that is well balanced and impressively fresh tasting. Mouthfeel, smell, lacing, and carbonation are exactly on point for the style.

Clear body, amber color, large head, and good retention equate to handsomeness to me. The aroma was very tropical, with mango, grapefruit, papaya, and honeydew melon in the nose. The taste was citric, bitter, fruity, and therefore ultra delicious. This beer also had the juiciest aftertaste I have ever experienced. It refused to go away long after each sip, lingering, and enticing me to take another. The body was medium dense, and the feel was soft in the mouth. This is a superbly crafted single IPA, one of the best I have had in quite a while.
