COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with 100% Columbus hops this double IPA is an absolute Columbus hop bomb! Its resinous hop character comes through with huge grapefruit zest and pine notes throughout the brew. The big juicy, fruity, citrus hops add a resinous and almost sticky hop presence in the body making the medium body from crystal malts seem even richer and fuller. This is a hop head’s treat! 8.8% ABV, 98 IBU Hops used: Columbus

Fantomasus (204) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - FEB 3, 2014
Pours a light gold amber. Aroma is clean and refreshing but hops overwhelm. Flavor is very nicely balanced. Palate is lingering bitter. A really solid offering but not groundbreaking.

ben4321 (3847) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 9, 2014
Location: Draft at Three Aces, 6/9/14

Aroma: The aroma of this beer has lots of grapefruit/citrus zest, caramel, and some pine
Appearance: Clear orange color with a lasting full finger of beige head and some solid lace
Flavor: It has a pretty hoppy flavor, lots of grapefruit, with booze, caramel, and some pine
Palate: It has a medium-plus body, very smooth, some heat, soft carbonation, and a dry finish
Overall Impression: I thought this was a pretty enjoyable one, and another quite tasty offering from the IPA series that Green Flash is doing. I’m enjoying this series. Looking forward to trying the future ones.

On tap in a pint glass. Pours hazy amber with an off-white head. Aroma of floral, citrusy, and some resinous hops, pale and caramel hops, and dough. Flavor the same with a strong hoppiness. Average texture. A pretty good beer, but the hops might not be strong enough.
