To me, this is the closest brew I have found to taste like my hard to come by favorite, pliny the elder. A must for IPA lovers.

Opens with a solid whoosh!

Pours a light gold with some effervescence & 3 fingers of pearl colored head. Very nice head retention & lacing (4.75)

S: Catty, dank, piney & grassy (4.75)

T: Grassy, citrusy, piney with light malty sweetness up front, some minty notes as well. Dryness, pine & cattiness as this warms, leafy hops as well. Finishes crisp, dry, grassy & catty (4.75)

MF: Medium bodied, crisp carbonation, good balance (4.5)

Drinks very easy, a nice session IPA. Green Flash: You did yourself proud with this one! Maybe the best session IPA I've had! (4.75)

I am drinking this a month after its best by date and it is still very good. Citrus nose scented with grapefruit, a little earthy mustiness, berry and melon. Pours pale gold with a slight haze under a 2” off-white foam cap. While the head descends fairly quickly it is very lacy. On the front of the tongue the beer is all melon, tropical fruit citrus suspended in a very creamy solution that becomes increasingly bitter as it moves to the back. The beer clears and the melon becomes more prominent as the beer warms. The beer has a lot going on for 4.5 abv, is very drinkable and refreshing and has a delightful, creamy texture making it very sessionable.

A - Beautiful golden color, full of carbonation & pours about a half inch of head.
S - citrus galore. no yeast or grains whatsoever.
T - super crisp, same citrusy pineyness you would expect
M - cleans the palate nicely but does not overpower it
O - More please. This was awesome.

Outstanding beer- I honestly do not think Green Flash can make a bad IPA.

I am a sucker for a great Citra IPA and Green Flash delivered here. Great Citra flavors and next to no malt character, which is what I look for in a Session. Can't wait for my next one!
