look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy amber, capped after a nice bubble show by a three inch head; gobs of lacing hang around

Smell: A bit of tangerine but rather nondescript

Taste: After a bit of the biscuit, the tangerine flavors come into the fray; slightly bitter through the finish

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A couple of months past the best by date, the beer is clearly oxidized so it may have been more enjoyable when it was fresher

First of all, I’m not a fan of session IPAs. That said, this one doesn’t smell too bad - nice hops and malt. Decent head settles after a bit. Flavor’s mostly resin bitter. Long bitter finish. Body’s a touch thin.

Light copper to gold in color with a half inch of sudsy off white head. Aroma is more in the citrus realm, but you also pick up some light malt. The taste is that of a well balanced citrus IPA with a light saltine cracker malt presence. The mouth is pretty quaffable for an IPA. This is highly sessionable.

A: This poured a clear light gold with a bit of white head.
S: It smelled like pineapple and resin, with some grapefruit and passion fruit.
T: It tasted like bitter resin and citrus zest, with some unripe grapefruit and pineapple. It had a clean and lasting bitter aftertaste.
M: It was somewhat thick with moderate carbonation. Decent body.
D: This was another solid session brew from Green Flash. The scent was a little catty, but had nice tropical notes. The taste was surprisingly bold and bitter for a session beer. The body was ok, but the finish was long and a little harsh, so it was not that easy to chug. Perfect to keep your taste buds happy after a full day of drinking.

Pours a clear, gold color. 1/4 inch head of an off-white color. Decent retention and decent lacing. Smells of floral hops, hops oils, hint of resin, hint of pine, sweet malt, and slight caramel malt. Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of citrus hops, slight floral hops, sweet malt, caramel malt, and a hint of pine. Overall, better aroma than body, too bitter, decent appearance, average IPA at best.

A- clear wheat gold in color with a half finger head. Lacing is stagnant across pint glass.

S- lots of grapefruit and citrus in the nose.

F- resin and grapefruit.

M- crisp and smooth feel with resin lingering in the mouth

O- a good IPA. the resin came through a little dominant but good nonetheless

22 oz bottle poured into stemmed, tulip style glasses. A nice golden color and white head. Nice hop aroma and taste. Very nice session, that is hop forward, but now overpowering. Relatively light body feel, and overall, would definitely drink this beer again.

12 oz bottle with a Feb. 2017 BB date.

Hazy amber body has visible carbonation that rises to a moderate size, sudsy, off-white head. Some sediment added i the pour. Good retention and patterned sticky lacing.

Fairly good and floral aroma with notes of hay, pine and tropical fruits. The flavor is bold for a "session" ale, and a bit better than the aroma suggests. Notable complexity. Moderate bitterness for style.

Feel: near medium body; medium+ but soft carbonation; semi-dry finish.

Overall: a flavorful IPA that emphasizes tropical fruit notes.

22 oz bottle was poured into a nonic glass.

Appearance: A two finger head was poured that reduced to a puffy layer. It is a slightly hazy pale orange color with good clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Frothy lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Light citrus, pine, and herbal hops followed by toasted, biscuity, and pale malts.

Taste: Simple hop flavor, straightforward malt bill, chewy notes, and light bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Light, crisp, refreshing, chewy, medium carbonation, and light light bitterness.

Overall: A nice session IPA. Not familiar with Segal Ranch hops, but they definitely make a good hop flavor for a beer.

L - Golden, with 1 finger of head and lots of lace left all over the top of the brew and the sides of the glass. Gorgeous

S - Big bitter notes, pine, tangerines, grapefruit

T - Like the aroma - pine bitterness, citrus, and decent malt backbone. Bitter aftertaste

F - Well carbonated, and medium body

O - Excellent for a session IPA. Very tasty and hoppy and decently balanced for a session

From the bottle, it pours alight golden amber with a nice large head. The head stays around for awhile. The nose is tickled by the hops with scents of pine and citrus. Flavor is more bitter than east coast ipas, but nice.

Pours a clear amber with half a finger head that settles to a thin cap. Very slight aroma...grainy. Taste is illusive and slightly bitter. Somewhat thin feel.

Slightly hazy orange color with off-white head. Aroma has sweet malt and orange peel with some earthy hops on top. Taste starts with the same notes, really balanced, gets quite bitter on the finish. You get the malts and also the fruity hops with big orange flavor. Medium mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Although my bottle is past it's best by date, it still is quite tasty, especially for the low ABV.
