Tap. Light/medium amber clear color. Minor initial hop aroma. Mild. Hoppy flavor but overall mild. Very light malt backbone. Good/solid IPA but light hop flavor.

S_Side_Smitty (487) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - NOV 29, 2013
Pours golden amber with a thick off white head. Aroma is heavy pine and sweet syrup. Taste is pretty much the same with a little hint of mango. The bitter pine lingers throughout the palate, but not in a heavy overhanded way. Finish is long and mildly bitter. Of the Green Flash IPA’s I’ve had, this one is nicely balanced and easy to drink.

This is a very lightly hazed copper color with a thin white head. The aroma is metal and hops. The taste is bitter sweet flowers. Smooth palate. Borderline chemy.
