Gription79 (2228) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - DEC 8, 2013
Had on draft at the brewery. Citrus, resin, chewy malts, lots of malt character for a green flash beer.

Tap. Light/medium amber clear color. Minor initial hop aroma. Mild. Hoppy flavor but overall mild. Very light malt backbone. Good/solid IPA but light hop flavor.

S_Side_Smitty (429) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - NOV 29, 2013
Pours golden amber with a thick off white head. Aroma is heavy pine and sweet syrup. Taste is pretty much the same with a little hint of mango. The bitter pine lingers throughout the palate, but not in a heavy overhanded way. Finish is long and mildly bitter. Of the Green Flash IPAís Iíve had, this one is nicely balanced and easy to drink.

kidmartinek (3513) - austin, Texas, USA - NOV 26, 2013
This is a very lightly hazed copper color with a thin white head. The aroma is metal and hops. The taste is bitter sweet flowers. Smooth palate. Borderline chemy.

OPIE788 (313) - Ohio, USA - NOV 26, 2013
Draft. Copper color with a white head. The small amount of aroma I got was of pine. Pine resin and a nice lingering hop bitterness. good beer.

nearbeer (3590) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 25, 2013
On tap. Clear orange amber with a lasting film of cream on top. Nose is dank herb with the ash, caramel and light citrus zest. Taste is orange toffee, resin, green herb, and a hint of ash. Near-medium body is dry and smoothly carbonated.

wheresyourball (481) - El Cajon, California, USA - NOV 25, 2013
Draft at PressBox. Pours dark hazy gold. Nose is sweet, nutty. Flavor is butterscotch, candy, lightly hoppy. Medium carbonation. Average IPA.

Suttree (5013) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 25, 2013
Hazy Copper, decent head. Smells grassy, with notes of caramel and woody bitterness. Taste is pretty hop forward, with an almost medicinal bitterness. A little harsh, in fact. Some earthy malts in there, too.

beastmaster (227) - Florida, USA - NOV 17, 2013
Appears a little cloudy. Light head. Hoppy aroma, orange peels, citrus. Chewy body that comes off more malty than hopy. Tastes like Iím drinking an orange peel yet not as well balanced as Iíd like.

dmac (3896) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - NOV 16, 2013
Draft at Capones and one of the worst beers Iíve ever had. Not sure if this was left over from 2008 but judging by how bad it was itís a definite possiblity. Poured a hazy lifeless chunky orange body with no head at all. Aroma of vomit and old rotting citrus fruits. Medium bodied with super light almost nonexistant carbonation. Flavor was disgusting with some weird apricot, honey and tonic water combo going on. I couldnít even drink 2 ounces of this garbage juice.
