3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a red-brown color with a thick head that leaves lots of sticky lacing as it fades. It certainly looks like a typical red ale, but that is where the similarity ends. The brewer dry hops with Amarillo hops giving the beer a strong citrus aroma and flavor. A bit of pine hits those senses as well. The hop profile is significant but the beer is still balanced with enough malt sweetness to keep things in check. There is some lingering bitterness, and a slightly oily mouthfeel. At 6% ABV it’s a little high for a session beer, but still quite drinkable. I was somewhat reminded of Tröegs Nugget Nectar, another highly hopped American Red Ale. However, Nugget Nectar has a stronger malt backbone, whereas the Green Flash has a much stronger citrus profile. That stereotypical East Coast - West Coast difference perhaps?

Júntese una belga tipo dubbel o similar y una IPA americana y el resultado es esto. Si lo haces bien, claro. Color marrón muy bonito. Espuma poco marcada. Aroma de IPA, claramente lupulado, resinoso, frutal. En boca estamos ante una cerveza diferente. Inicialmente se aprecia claramente una rica base acaramelada, tostada, dulce. Pero progresivamente se va envolviendo en una explosión lupulada que te lleva a pensar que estás tomando una IPA americana. Y de gran calidad. Porque realmente mezcla con efectividad dos mundos. Aunque gana por goleada el de IPA. Muy amarga, floral, frutal. Gran experimento żnuevo estilo?

Bottle poured read with a white head
The aroma had herbal and floral notes with light Carmel notes. Taste had caramel malt. The predominant taste is bitter, but it wasnt a hop blast! The palate is invigorating. I didn’t find it to be too complex, but it’s still decent.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma of malt, caramel, citrus, fruits, resin, hops. Flavour is light sweet with a medium bitter finish. Very dry. Wish I could have tasted a fresher sample, but even aged it was damn fine, even though it has probably lost its hoppy edge.

The aroma has hops that are herbal and floral. As I sip, I also taste caramel malt. The predominant taste is bitter, but it isn’t overwhelming. The palate is invigorating. I didn’t find it to be too complex, but it’s still good.

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

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

I feel like I’ve typed "I love Green Flash" hundreds of times. It’s like they’ve tapped into my conscious and they’ve 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, it’s incredible. Insanely easy to drink the whole bottle.

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.

4.3 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 I’ve 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?"
