3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On Draft @ O’Brien’s San Diego. Wow, a great beer from the folks @ Green Flash! Pours a deep amber color with a brightly glowing reddish hue. Head was light tan, tremendous lacing. Aromas of piney hops, caramel malt and nutmeg. Had more of a body and mouth feel of a big bold IPA Than a red pale ale. A great brew!!!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad. J suggested. Deep amber color, transparent with a nice head display. Hop resin is finely packed into the aroma with some malt and caramel. Lighter finish compared to the big boy reds, nice and crisp. Hoppiness stains last for a good while on the tongue. A good choice.

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2007 On tap@the brewery: Deep mahogany-red color with a small off-white head. Aroma is rich and citrus hoppy. Flavor starts with a rich burnt caramel followed by a good dose of hops and a lingering dry grapefruit rind finish. Medium bodied and slick with lively carbonation. APA? I’ll put this up aginst "The" Arrogant Bastard any day! Well done Chuck.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 26, 2008 On tap at the brewery. Taster. Interesting red-amber with a strong hoppy aroma (cascade I think) on first pour, but fades as I drink. Small-medium bubbles that last. Nice. Fresh green hops coats your mouth and lingers there. Lot’s of flavor and aroma, but low bitterness.
Tried again. Same rating.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2008 Draft at Stone Brewery. Aroma of caramel malt and pine/citrus hops. Tasted more like a red ale or amber ale with aggressive hopping. Pretty good for the style. Re-rate, 8/11/08; bottle. Nice red-hinted brown color with some off-white head. Nice aroma of sweet caramel, some biscuit malt and citrus. Flavor is the same, some earthy bitterness, slightly resinous. Pretty good amber ale.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Stone; poured a reddish amber with white head. Aroma of caramel and some citrus. Wasn’t sure what style it was at a time; good for an APA. Flavor was about the same as the aroma, with a dry finish.

On tap@ the Liars’ Club - Pours a deep amber color with a small off white head. Light lacing. Aroma was hops and toasted malt. Flavor had a nice hop bite up front, followed by lightly sweetened toasted caramel malt. Nice balanced. Medium body. A very nice, easy drinking beer. I like these Green Flash beers.
