Pours clear red with a massive off-white head. Grass, pine, and grapefruit all over the nose. More bittersweet than expected. Lots of resin and grapefruit with a strong bitterness from the Amarillos. Expected biscuit maltiness that did not overwhelm. I was happy with this selection.

Pours a transparent copper amber with a spotty-lacing off-white head. Aroma of fresh grapefruity hops and lightly toasted sweet caramel malt. Body starts with good fullness and drinkability of crisp citrusy hops and the perfect amount of toasty light caramel sweetness. Finishes smooth and bittersweet. A very nice amber.

Wow thanks santa! great reddish pour with a perfect sized head. Aroma is citrus, some floral notes, maybe some fruit. Hops hit you first and then the smooth malt coasts across your tongue. Really a great beer. Smooth, balanced and really tasty.

Today: Poured into tulip glass, the 2 finger head begins to build and the aromas are released, settles down into a creamy froth and lacing, cloudy dark reddish brown like a mahagony stain, very nice color, rich..., strong pungancy of pine, citrus and grass backed by some roasted malts, taste of bittered hops hit the tongue with a background of caramel toffee then the nice linger bittering finish, palate is smooth and tingly, but not harsh.... a nice quaffer.

Bottle. Amber/reddish pour with off-white foamy head. Diminishes into a slick of lace. Hops and spice on the nose. Hops dominate upfront, all bitterness in the initial taste then gives way for maltiness. Not balanced, but it does well not to be. Medium mouthfeel. Good beer, but not worth the $14.99 I paid for the six-pack. Better beer around for less.

Pours red amber with tall creamy head that lasts a long time. Piney, resin hop aroma detectable from a foot away. This one is amazing! Resin hops with a hugely bitter finish and a decent malt backbone -- one of my new favorites. Stupendous.

On tap at the Oregon Brewers Festival. A very nice red, which often aren’t my favorite. Nice hops though!

Sample @ the brewery. Pours a gorgeous caramel/red color with a medium-sized off-white head. Aroma is pine hops with detectable caramel and malt as well. Taste is largely malt and caramel sweetness with a heavy bite of hops at the end of the beer. Well done, very well done.

OBF ’08 I truly heart Green Flash Brewing, always great. It is very nice red with a great hop profile.

Deep red in color with a creme color mid-size head. Piney aroma is stiff in the nose. Initial taste is very enjoyable with a creamy flavor of hops and carmelized sugar. Slow hop filled finish
