Great beer. Poured a dark copper orange into a 16 ounce pint style glass. The smell was not overly distinctive but you could smell some of the hops. The taste was very strong complex hop flavors. Left good lacing on the glass. There was not any lingering after taste. Had four on tap and subsequently bought two in bottles. The bottles paled by comparison but the draft was a top quality IPA. Stumbled on this beer when my local favorite beer place switched out the WEST Coast IPA with this one day. Discovered the ABV after the fourth beer.

Why I love this beer:

I love how the beer slowly changes character as you drink it and it starts warming slightly. How it goes from a crisp, almost unbalanced hoppiness only to evolve into a delicious biscuity presence toward the end. And how I can continue to recycle the sticky hops flavor from tongue to nose long after the liquid has been swallowed. I have fallen in love with this beer. Most definitely on my top 5 list.

Thank you, Green Flash!

I like this beer better than just about anything. I really Really REALLY like this beer. That is all.
