3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle poured into a Samuel Smith pint glass.
A: Pours a glowing reddish orange color. Small yeast particles seem to be suspended in the body. The head is a three finger offwhite shade featuring good texture and lacing
S: The aroma features a good mix of caramel malts blended with some grapefruity, piny hops. Nothing particularly out of the ordinary, at all really, but it works well.
T: I swear this almost has a chocolaty flavor to, especially near the front end. The midtaste transitions to burnt toast and caramel, while it finishes with subtle grapefruit peel and black pepper. Quite biscuity in its general flavor, as well.
M: The body itself is creamy smooth until the piny hops dry out the palate some. Otherwise, the finish is mostly a vaguely sweet linger that could use a touch more delicacy. Befitting the style, itís weakly carbonated.
O: This is a decent example in a style that Iím not a huge fan of, with one glorious Hershey chocolate-covered exception. This will satiate me nicely ítil Nugget Nectar arrives in my area, but I doubt Iíd buy a 4 pack of it.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Super porzadne piwo, tresciwe o pieknym aromacie bzu, lesnych owocow i cytrusow. Miedziany metny kolor, zbrudzony, piana spora i trwala. Bardzo aromatyczne doznania, mozna wachac jak najlepsze perfumy. Smak chmielowy nieco slodowy i leciutki posmak karmelowego slodu, ale gdzies ukryty za potezna dawka Amarillo. Niemal w smaku jak imperial IPA.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
22oz bottle -
I feel like Iíve typed "I love Green Flash" hundreds of times. Itís like theyíve tapped into my conscious and theyíve brewed it exactly how I like it. Balance is the key word with this beer and it expertly showcases both malts and hops in this to a high degree. Caramel and citrus hops fight for the right to be called the dominant aroma, but neither are. The powerful malts and robust hops mingle so incredibly well together, itís incredible. Insanely easy to drink the whole bottle.

The aroma has hops that are herbal and floral. As I sip, I also taste caramel malt. The predominant taste is bitter, but it isnít overwhelming. The palate is invigorating. I didnít find it to be too complex, but itís still good.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured into Speiglau IPA glass. Opaque reddish copper with a foamy beige head. Head disappears quickly and laces nicely.
Sweet caramel and raisin notes spell of serious maltiness. The hops are not far behind though and lead the charge on first sip. Medium mouthfeel with mild carbonation. A slight bitterness on the finish which is well balanced with the sweetness.
Green Flash never disappoints and I love this one as well. Will need to get my hands on the newer version.

Great beer. Very original as this beer has an iced tea flavor to it. Strange yet intriguing. Would try again.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
more like an ipa or a super hoppy amber. i compare it to Lagunitas Imperial Red, and since Iíve only had one...no inconcistency issues yet. Not as hoppy as a Red Rocket, but maltier from the carmel malt. nice aroma, balance, color, and body. good stuff all around! 7/11-change that not as hoppy as red rocket part...things have changed over the last few years. closer to a 4.3?"

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A- Citrus, tropical fruits, peach, hoppy, bready, malty, caramel.
A- Dark amber color, cloudy liquid, off white head.
T- Bitter, malty, caramel, citrus, bready.
P- Full body, thick texture, average carbonation, bitter finish.
O- This one had to have some age on it, beings it was retired, which I am sure mellowed it out. Poured a thick consistency and overall was not as crazy as I expect from Green Flash.

Good beer, would love more hop flavor for as many hops are in there but the flavor is good. Good job green flash.
