COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"San Diego-style IPA, as it has come to be known by many, is a super-hoppy, high gravity, yet highly quaffable ale. Green Flash Imperial IPA is created in this new tradition, with intense hop flavors and aromas from a unique blend of Summit and Nugget hops. Itís all about the hops!" -- Brewmaster Chuck Silva

I was super excited to try this one and a bit dissapointed at the end. Still a good beer. Clear orange beer with a small white head. Some orange and maybe apricot in the aroma but itís mostly very floral. Nice bitterness upfront, maybe a little piney. Unpleasant alcohol finish. Itís a good beer but nothing super spectacular.

Extraoridnarly drinkable double ipa. Huge taste with loads of hops and bitterness. Exactly what you are looking for if you are into big IPAís.

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2008 A Very nice bright, piney, citrusy hoppy aroma. Slightly long bitter lasting flavor that is quite big but not undrinkable, especially for the style. Iím somewhat surprised I could handle the 101 IBUs enough to finish this. Decent, but I prefer Dogfish Headís 90 Minute IPA, if its available.

Cloudy orange color. Bubblegum and sweet citrus flavors. Surprisingly smooth for a double IPA. Requisite bitterness with some sugary sweetness on the finish. Not an overwhelmingly sugary flavor though. Good citrus fruit flavors as well.

101 IBUs?!? Yowza! A hopheadís delight, this ale has a golden amber body with a tall head that pastes lacing to the sides of the glass. The aroma is strong with hoppy bitterness - grapefruit pulp & zest, orange blossoms, pine. Nice. It has a blistering, hot peppery mouthfeel. Nice. Some malt finally comes through in the taste, just enough to keep the lips from cracking. Nice. The finish is a prolonged bitter burning sensation. Nice. The alcohol level is hidden beneath it all. Non-hopheads may call this one dimensional. I call it very nice indeed.

This is an outstanding San Diego Pale Ale (AKA IIPA) which features a strong but smooth hoppy mouth feel behind a pleasant (for a hophead) aroma. This beer is a staple at home on tap (since they sell 5G kegs to locals).

Samplded in a 22 oz bottle. Very rich amber color and strong hops in taste for a storng strong IPA. Alcohol is smooth for a 9% beer and pour releases a very smooth fresh aroma full of hoppy goodness.

Light amber/orange color. Smells of piney, citrusy, fruity hops. Wow! Very bitter. Piney, floral, great IPA! Amazing!

Copper orange with a large frothy head. Nice lacing throughout. Flavor is some malt with obvious strong hops. Slightly piney, but a little too much bitterness for my taste. Nice thick mouthfeel. Good, but I prefer Racer 5 or Stone over this IPA.
