I remember that I enjoyed the draft a lot, more than this glass poured out of a bottle. I adjusted my score accordingly. This is on the bitter side of IPA's, but it's not too much. The citrus flavor is heavy, and the feel is ideal. Everything about this beer is strong and bold, so if you like IPA's, this is a fun one to try.

Deep amber with tight white head. Smells of tangerines and flowers. Taste is is nice, hoppy and bitter upfront before dissolving into flavors of citrus and pineapple with a touch of honey.

I picked up a 6-pack of Soul Style from Trader Joes recently. Best by 07/26/2017. ABV is 6.5%. 75 IBU. Green Flash brews this IPA with Simcoe, Citra and Cascade hops.

Soul Style pours golden amber with moderate carbonation. 2 fingers of white foam. Some lacing. The smell is tropical fruits and citrus. The taste is a mélange of tropical fruits, citrus, floral and grass against a moderate malt backbone. With each sip, there's a slightly bitter citrus aftertaste that lingers nicely on the palate.

This is very good IPA -- fruity and juicy -- without neglecting the hop bitterness. Hats off to Green Flash Brewing... again. Soul Style IPA is a well-rounded, tropical-fruity IPA.

Tropical fruits, bitter oranges, grassy and melon hops. There's less dank in the taste than I got in the nose. Hop bite is perfectly complimented by the smooth citrus finish.
