3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle to glass. Pours a clear golden orange light amber color with an off white head. Aroma is a nice fleshy fruit, light tropical hops, slightly piney. Flavor loses a bit of the tropical notes, but bigger piney character. Lingering slightly fruity piney bitterness in the finish. A fine offering from Green Flash.

Poured from the tap at ABV in Hillsboro. Has a nice IPA aroma to it. Definitely has a sweet start, but the finish is like a 2x4. Definitely packs a punch.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft in a sampler at Ei8ht Ball. Pours a pale, clear yellow-gold with a small bubbly white head. Very, very light in aroma and flavor, which is fine, but it’s also a little bit off for what I’d expect from a Green Flash IPA. There’s a distinct soapiness that messes up an otherwise clean, lemony, floral beer. Very light maltiness. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a dry, soapy mouthfeel. A bit disappointing.
