A - Body has a golden orange hue and a frothy eggshell head.

S - Light citrus notes and slightly sweet malts. Not a huge nose to this on my end as it seems rather muted.

T - Sugary grapefruit and bready malts with a bitter finish.

M - Medium carbonation, light body and a dry finish.

O - Definitely not the best IPA out of the Green Flash portfolio.

Appearance - looks like a good dipa with a light orange color

Smell - smells like a good dipa with hops and citrus

Taste - this where things go south this beer tastes very watered down not sure what the brewer was going for

Mouthfeel - again very watered down and almost tastes like a miller lite dipa if they made one

Overall - probably one of the worst beers from Green Flash

A - Pours a golden, orange with a two finger head that quickly recedes. Nice, light lacing on the glass.

S - Citrus hops and sweet malts. Very much like sugar cane.

T - Oranges, tropical fruits and cream followed by hoppy bitterness on the finish, although not as bitter as the nose might have lead on. The alcohol is hidden very well and this is very drinkable, but just a bit too much sugar cane sweetness.

M - Medium carbonation and light body given it's just over 10%.

O - Just a bit too sweet for me. It isn't cloying, but the malty sweetness and hops balance in this just doesn't work for me. Green Flash makes a lot of beers I enjoy, but this one isn't for me.
