I bought this in Imperial Beach on the advice of a friend and brought it back to Colorado. The color was a clear orange hue with not much white head. Smell was fruity, hoppy juicy. Taste was like watermelon rind, cantaloupe, and green melon, a bitterness in the aftertaste. This was a good beer but I actually liked the Big Eye IPA more, which is also the case with Green Flash; I like the single IPA better than the double. This was also a little more expensive than all the other DIPA’s I brought back from San Diego at $7 a 22. Rock on. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 10-03-2007 18:46:45

smashteroid (262) - Alabama, USA - AUG 26, 2009
Served cold from tap at brewery. This is the best Ballast Point brew, in my opinion. Almost 10% ABV, big hop aroma, citrus and floral notes. Flavor is well balanced, not nearly as bitter as expected, but great taste. Almost no presence of the alcohol, even though it’s an Imperial. Feels great on the palate, smooth, and a fine hop finish.

thirdeye11 (5746) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 26, 2009
( 22oz bottle thanks to ballewblake) Pours a clear yellow with low oily bubbles. Nose of pine, sweet grapefruit esters/oils. Taste folllows and is pretty bitter for me with some wood thrown in. Body is oily and light. Well balanced but not enjoyable for me.

Macegan75 (743) - Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 17, 2009
Pours a beautiful clear golden straw color. The nose is not as strong with hops as I thought but still prominent. I taste a lot of tropical fruit like mango and papaya. The malt is present in the middle and bittering hops finish nicely. What a great clear finish.

emacgee (4308) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - AUG 17, 2009
Pours a brilliant translucent gold with a two finger cascading white head. Aroma is bursting with fruit and citrus character. Mango, sweet citrus juice, tropical, tad spicy, some honey. Flavor is less delicate than the aroma. Spicy bitterness, pink grapefruit, a bit of honey. Spicy palate with a citrus rind bitterness. Awesome

nickd717 (3602) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 17, 2009
Tap at Toronado 22nd Anniversary. Clear golden-amber color with a lasting white head. Aroma is sweet malt and piney/resinous hops. Flavor is lots of sweet caramel malt, toffee, honey, and heavy-hitting pine/citrus hops. Fairly syrupy and oily palate with lingering hop bitterness. Good stuff.

Drake (9999) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 16, 2009
22 ounce bottle courtesy of CrellMoset. Thanks! Pours a hazy peach color with a medium head. Good head retention and lacing. Big resiny citrus notes with a good toffee-like maltiness. Taste is resiny hop notes with citrus, pineapple and a note of toffee. Full bodied. Straightforward double IPA but very good.
