Bomber. Pours a relatively clear, orangey-gold, medium creamy white head with outstanding retention and decent lacing. Nose is resinous pine, citrus, pineapple, biscuit malt. Mouth is medium bodied, refreshingly dry with pleasantly fruity bitterness cutting through a chewy malt backbone, melon, tropical fruit, some mild tannin notes precede a long bitter finish. Timecard time again, Green Flash shows they know how to do IPAs.

Growler from taps. Good malt body with a decent caramel sweetness. Light orange hop profile. Candy slice orange sweetness and flavors. Cream sickle sort of texture and flavor. Nice balance and not overpowering in any one dimension.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5669) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 31, 2015
Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a dark golden color with a huge fluffy white head that left incredible lacing. The aroma was sweet and tangy with tropical fruits, a bit of pine and grapefruit. The flavor was bitter, tangy yet sweetish with notes of pine, grapefruit and undertones of earthiness and malt. Medium length pine finish. Moderately full bodied. Solid.

Deep gold with a white head. Pungent pine aroma followed by resiny hop flavors with a medium malt body. Finish is long, bitter and quite satisfying. Great West Coast style IPA.

Pours a crystal clear gold light copper color with huge creamy head. Aroma is citrucy piney floral hops grapefruit and some lemon drops very Amazing aromas! Taste follows the aroma with a surprisingly strong floral grapefruit lemon hop presents upfront and on the back end. Very hoppy!

Slipstream (2252) - USA - JAN 18, 2015
Very sweet, pleasant aroma - sunkissed flowers and a spritz of lemon. Pretty standard label (it was not the one in the RB photo). Orange pour with sheet lacing. The taste is well bittered with a fairly standard line-up of hops, but they are just a bit too dominant imo. There is some warmth and tingle in the finish, plus a little sea salt. Another fine one from GF - I’m starting to keep an eye out for their new releases.
