Andrew196 (1399) - Katy, Texas, USA - AUG 23, 2016
Bottle to glass. Pours a rich gold with suspended particulate. Small wispy white head. Aroma of fresh pine resin, underlying grain. Much more floral on the tongue, very crisp, well carbonated, more pine, finishes well with a pleasant bitterness. Well played for a session.

puboflyons (3050) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 18, 2016
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle with an expiration date of 02 Dec 2016. The pour is a handsome looking copper-amber with a long lasting off-white head. The aroma is subtle and rather muted. I get some oily or resiny hops with a mild sweet malt character but nothing jumps out. The body falls into the medium range and is smooth. Hard to define the taste.l Should it be overly hopped or should it be subtle like the aroma? If you are a hop head and looking for overly hopped - forget about it. But if you like the easy drinking mellow characters of a traditional English IPA - it might work for you.

The_Osprey (5920) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2016
12 fl oz bottle at home in Richmond as ’Alpine Beer Company Hoppy Birthday’, 5.25%, BB Dec 2016, ’brewed and bottled by Alpine’ - no mention of Green Flash. Another beer with a silly play on the word ’hoppy’ ... never gets old! Hazy dark amber orange, sparkling, foamy off-white head. Aroma is airy, floral, light pine. Body is a little frothy with tingly carbonation. Taste is intense piney hops up front, lots of pithy grapefruit, flowery, grassy, tangy with an assertive drying bitterness into the finish. Quite an aggressive hop profile - drinks like a Stone DIPA. A pretty decent IPA - maybe a bit harsh for my taste.

cmacklin (803) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 12, 2016
650ml bottle. Pours a hazy golden orange with a large, frothy, long lasting, off-white head that laces nicely. Sweet, fruity aroma of peach, grapefruit, mango and pine. Sweet flavour of grapefruit, orange, caramel malt, peach, tropical fruit, grass and pine with a dry, bitter, hop resin finish. Light body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. An easy drinking, well made SIPA.

Bottle from Rehills of Jesmond. Pours golden with a thin off white head. Nice pine aroma. The taste is plenty hoppy with lots of spice and pine. Some dankness. Lovely bitter finish. Toasty underlying malts. Great beer.

drjay44 (3369) - Salida, Colorado, USA - AUG 1, 2016
12 oz. bottle. BBD 28 Oct. 16. Pours a medium thick, well retained light ivory head, over a slightly hazy amber (SRM 8) body.......nose is pine, resin, citrus with orange, tangerine notes, mild toasted malts, balance to the hops.......taste is mildly sweet, with hints of toffee/caramel, light bread, biscuit from the malts, pine, resin, orange, tangerine from the hops, finishing with a moderate bitterness......mouth feel, light body, no alcohol, high carbonation with moderate acid. This is a well made session IPA. It has nice aroma and flavor, is nicely complex, and is very refreshing and very easy to drink. BJCP 8/3/15/5/8

adster (666) - HUNGARY - AUG 1, 2016
Cukormázas borítású, frissen vágott zöldek illatával játszó komlós aromákkal kezd, amolyan kortyolgatós stílusú, így ezt követően sem durvul el a hangulat. Éles ízjegyei kiegyensúlyozottak, ropogós komló hangulatát hordozzák. Selymes, homogén komponensek halmaza, könnyen csúszik, barátságos ital.

Dorkenstein (412) - - JUL 31, 2016
Aromas of pineapple, caramel, and crackers. Taste is caramel, grapefruit, papaya, crackers, slight pine resin, and an after taste of pine needles and pineapple. There is a lot going on here for a session IPA; but it is very disjointed.
