4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a beautiful honey-golden amber with a thick, fine-bubbled, golden buff head that leaves plenty of lacing. Aroma is hoppy and then some - resiny, a little woody, with a subtle citrus undertone. Flavor is monumentally hoppy - woody and resiny in equal portions, a bit of green-wood bitterness, subtly fruity, hint of sweet malt. Very satisfying. Mouthfeel has average firmness but loads of woody, hoppy fizz. Thanks, Green Flash, for bringing back a damned good IPA!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at brewery (Hop Odyssey Symposium IPA). Pours amber in colour, clear with a thin off white head. Aroma is of grassy hops and slight citrus undertones; pine as well. Taste is not too sweet with a strong but not truly overpowering bitterness. Medium body, good carbonation, and a creamy mouth feel. Nice IPA overall.

Tap. I guess they brought this beer back since it is listed as 2008 and Retired. It pours a clear gold. Light carbonation, but the heavy hop load make this a sipping beer. Lots of grapefruit/citrus is the flavor. A medium bitterness, but not over the top. Unfortunately the aftertaste stayed on my tongue detracting from what was otherwise a very good IPA.

On tap at Bierkraft 8/24/13. Pours an incredibly clear deep gold. Nice fluffy head that dissipates slowly. Aroma of hops, citrus. Taste is hop bitter. Not much else for balance. Taste is very fresh. Good west coast ipa but not amazing
