Notes / Commercial Description:
As craft beer pioneers, we embarked on an expedition to brew the benchmark West Coast IPA. We ventured into the unknown and struck gold, discovering a tantalizing menagerie of hops. Simcoe for tropical and grapefruit zest, Columbus for hop pungency, Centennial for pine notes, Citra for citrus zest and Cascade for floral aroma are layered throughout the brewing process. West Coast IPA® exemplifies the Green Flash spirit of adventure and discovery.

Green Flash West Coast IPA - This pours almost pure bronze w/ a touch of gold - it's a beautiful beer. A big pour, produces at big fluffy head that persists and pushes out the aroma - earthy hops, a little creek water.

The taste is a great balance of toasty malt and lots of piney citric hops. Tastes solid yet sophisticated, with a delightful lemon-zest note mid-palate. The finish again doesn't have have hop-bomb bitterness, retains the bitter & sweet balance of hops and malt. Excellent. The mouthfeel is great - seems like it's on the light side of medium, very clean. It's a very satisfying quaff.

Overall this is highly drinkable, flavorful, delicious. Negatives? Can't give any. 'Nuff said.
