On tap at Brouwer’s Cafe, and well worth the trip from downtown on my final night in Seattle. Pours pale coppery orange with no head. No lacing - a lighter apple cider look. Aroma is pretty close to heaven; fresh fruit, pine, citrus in a lovely succulent blend. Taste has sweet fruit, pine needles, bitter citrus. A hint of malt. A fruity, lightish, super smooth blend. Gets more bitter thru the glass. Finishes bittersweet about medium length. A wonderful easy drinker.

For a standard IPA, this is as good as it gets. Full bodied, beautiful strings of citrus, grapefruit, dankness, just a juicy smelling beer. Taste is more if the same. Yum.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear deep golden with a thin sticky white cap. Lovely piney and sweet floral resins on the nose with a bit of light citrus zest. Crisp and hoppy flavor with lots of leafy tones, citrus bitterness, floral resin flavor and bitterness, a touch of pine, and finishing resiny and bitter and a little floral. Not bad. Tastefully made.

22 oz. bb 20 Apr 2016. Big bright aroma jumps out of the bottle: evergreen resin, tangerine zest, pineapple and flowery honey. Taste is just as bold with the same mix plus some dried green herb thrown in for good measure. Near-medium body has medium carbonation and a dry-hop bias that provides a nice counter to the ample malt body.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Decent run of the mill IPA. Aroma was catty with pine and earth. Pour was a medium light gold with a one finger white head. Taste was decent. Very malt forward with burnt caramel dominating the flavor. The simcoe hops were big in the finish with that cattiness lingering alongside the malt. Nice carbonation.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Lunar Brewing Co. and shaker served, displaying a slightly hazed, orangey gold color, with a healthy layer of soft white head foam that changed to rocky persistence, and wavy cling to the lacing. The nose was expressive grapefruit, some pit fruit, lightly dank, with a little resin & sweetness, and light breadiness to the malt. A bit better than medium bodied, with fair carbonation, the taste was similar notes as the aroma, including a pronounced earthy & rind-like bitterness that lingered long, and alcohol presence that wasn’t necessarily warming, but pleasantly noticeable. Well put together IPA.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
from a .5l bottle into a pint glass. Pours a nice copper color with lots of frothy white head. no date on the Green Flash bottle. Pine and grass aroma. Mouthfeel is medium with slightly too much carb. Taste is pretty generic actually. nothing really popped out. Kinda bitter with muddled mix of pine, wood, skunk and resin. Eh, not great at all. and way overpriced.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Lightly misty clementine hue. Uninspiring first take from the aroma. Stale florals, hay, grapefruit pith, sweetened iced tea. A pinch of lemon, possibly yuzu. Aggressive, unwieldy, dated blend, with papery caramel sweetness and hamster cage earthy hops. The perfumed, pithy grapefruit, and dry caramel flavor leaves the same impression. Sticky, brusque texture, dirty cookie dough like malts, cardboard intimation. Perfumed, lemon verbena finish.

Pours straw yellow with white foamy head. Aroma of pine, grass, passion fruit, and caramel. Extremely flavorful with passion fruit, pine, caramel, and some grass. Most excellent!
