really didnt like this one at all, pours a clear dark orange with little to no head. smell is flat, some hops come through but mostly smells like a cup of water. taste is not hop oriented at all. very very malty for a single hop IPA that is attempting to showcase a specific hop. the biggest taste here is the water for me: doesn't taste clean. feel is the only thing good about this beer, but still not awesome (actually surprising for Green Flash). maybe i got a bad bottle but i will NEVER be drinking this beer ever again.

I almost didn't buy this because everybody keeps telling me that Citra smells like cat pee...just kidding. Citra hops are amazing. I almost didn't buy it because it was $8 for session beer! The same price as a bottle of DINNER! GTFO...but here we are.

1/24/15 drink by date poured into a Hill Farmstead glass - 1 inch + head with giant bubbles. Light straw color.

Smell is definitely citra but a lingering smell that I would describe as "pilsner-ish" - not a great nose.

Really sharp, borderline offensive, taste when it hits your lips.

Overcarbonated - way overcarbonated for my liking.

I'm a CITRA lover - can't get enough of it - but this was a big miss for me. Lots of better session IPA's out there. Still probably better than cat pee.

I love hops, but this one was very skunky. Not a fan this session.

Pours yellow golden with a white head. Aroma is tropical fruity, grassy, and some cracker. Flavor was way underwhelming relative to the aroma; cracker and grassy bitterness mostly, a little tropical fruit. Crisp, active mouthfeel. Overall, disappointing beer. A friend recommended this one to me and I had high hopes for it. Wouldn't bother with again though.

A very hop forward IPA, very low abv, so it lives up to the name. Kind of a watery mouth feel and not much flavor beyond the bitterness of the hops. Not bad, I enjoyed it for the most part, but was not outstanding.

Would Drink Again: Yes
Would Purchase Again: No
