Tap @ The BeerMongers... Poured amber orange with an egg-shell head. Nose had pine-like, earthy, resinous hops. Nice hop flavor. Not too bitter and not too heavy on malt. Mild citrus notes, some sweet grains and bready character. Full mouthfeel and body too. Really nice Pale Ale.

FROM NOTES: July 29, ’12
A: smells like an ipa. Tons of hops in the nose, very good nose.
A: copper in color, good clarity. Very nice sticky lacing on the glass.
T: very hoppy. Sweet tangerine and citrus with a good amount of bitterness especially for a pale ale. Pretty much no malt on the taste.
P: Light to medium in body fairly highly charged carbonation
O: Great pale ale for hop heads. It is bitter so not something the faint of heart.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2014 Pours clear orange. Nose Floral and spicy, with other various hop complexities, fruits and moderate toasty malts. Flavor is fruits, some citrus, stone fruits mostly with some bready and medium toasty malts. Seemingly balanced in hop and malt profile for green flash. pretty good beer.
Edit: Got a fresh bottle in Grand Rapids and this seems much better than my initial 3.5 rating 8 months or so ago. Really nice, tropical fruit hop complexity and mild malt profile.
