Grapefruit nose, subtle lemon zest and onion presence. Crystal clear amber, thick head, good lace. Flavor is green onion, then grass, then lemongrass. Grapefruit overtones. Medium but little maltiness, low bitterness.Mote weight than a session IPA, but definitely hoppy.

Dr_Fellini (551) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - DEC 20, 2014
Bottle to glass. Pours a clear golden orange light amber color with an off white head. Aroma is a nice fleshy fruit, light tropical hops, slightly piney. Flavor loses a bit of the tropical notes, but bigger piney character. Lingering slightly fruity piney bitterness in the finish. A fine offering from Green Flash.

julesjis (151) - Oregon, USA - DEC 5, 2014
Poured from the tap at ABV in Hillsboro. Has a nice IPA aroma to it. Definitely has a sweet start, but the finish is like a 2x4. Definitely packs a punch.

On tap at 28 Springs thanks to Casey. Pours a golden amber with two fingers of head. Lots of pine and citrus. Flavor follows with a good bit of malt also. Somewhat bitter but not overbearing. Medium bodied. Very nice ipa.

phaleslu (6843) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 13, 2014
Draft in a sampler at Ei8ht Ball. Pours a pale, clear yellow-gold with a small bubbly white head. Very, very light in aroma and flavor, which is fine, but it’s also a little bit off for what I’d expect from a Green Flash IPA. There’s a distinct soapiness that messes up an otherwise clean, lemony, floral beer. Very light maltiness. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a dry, soapy mouthfeel. A bit disappointing.
