Green Flash sourced bottle (brewed by Green Flash?)

Golden colored brew that is quintessential west coast IPA. Carbonation is 2 fingers and sticks around. Crisp and clean, bright citrus and hoppy floral bitterness. An easy drinking IPA with lots of flavor and aroma. Well balanced and very drinkable, would probably give Pliney a run for their money in a blind test.

Clear amber, laced white foam. Effervescent grapefruit, passion fruit, a little guava. Lighter body but burst of fruit. Very refreshing

Pours clear, orange-yellow in color with 1/3 inch head. Taste is pine and big tropical fruit, mango, orange, and lemon. Light toasted malt and cracker give the beer balance. Slightly bitter, but nicely balanced. Real treat of an IPA. I could do several of these.

Bottle shared at tasting. Pale golden pour with a thin white head. Smells of malt sugars, caramel and grapefruit. Well balanced taste, high carbonation, with notes of grapefruit and a grapefruit heavy aftertaste.
