Great IPA!! Very little to no aroma and thin white head. Great initial taste with a lot of bite that fades to a smooth finish. Very good beer... Will drink again for sure.

Just a good solid beer. Not overwhelming in any way, but just strong on all fronts. If u drink one, good luck switching to another. It would seem all others pale in comparison. Enjoyed it!

The name is true to the flavor. The hops hit your mouth and takeover. This is one of my favorite strong hoppy beers from Green Flash!

The name is inappropriate since it does not wreck the sense of taste but establishes it own context of strong flavored which dictate what pairs well, as all food and beverage does. Just as a big red wine cannot pair with fish, this brew must be consumed with equally flavorful foods. I selected several cheese, and it was very good.
