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. It’s all about the hops!" -- Brewmaster Chuck Silva

On tap at Liars club. Hazy golden with good white head. All hops and earthy pine on the nose. Rich on the palate and smooth. Bitter, and citrus fruity with great length of flavors. Pleasant aftertaste. Very nice.

mtoast (336) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 27, 2007
Commencing gonzo rating v1. Huge piney aroma as soon as the cap is popped. Poured into trusty Duvel tulip. Dear god it’s like they liquefied nugget hops. Seriously, it’s like opening a bag of fresh hops, and sticking your face inside. Flavor is all about the hops, mouthfeel is all about the hops, finish is all about the hops. This beer is all about the hops. Honestly, second only to Pliny the Elder for sheer deliciousness and way too palatable (well at least for my hop loving ass) for the weight. Just gave it some more props for having at least some sediment, yeast is good y’all.

Coppery color. Nice head. Very astringent. Nice and sticky like a hop monster should be! If you are trying Green Flash, here’s your starting and finishing Line.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - MAY 25, 2007
Draft. Pours a light copper color with a white head. Very pale color for an imperial. resinous, piney aroma with citrus notes. Exceptionally bitter with the slighest of malt notes. Pine, floral and grapefruit notes. A great IIPA.

bryandhargrave (165) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 25, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 30, 2007 22oz poured perfectly into my 23oz glass. The head dancing around the rim but never spilling over. It bubbled from the bottom forever. Light copper in colouring. I’ve seen the word tart used, yes. Good word. Tart and bitter. I will drink this beer again. Many times.

mlist55 (210) - media, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 23, 2007
Clear amber appearance with a large, off white head and good lacing. Resinous hop aroma with a herbal edge. Flavor is full of citrusy hops but there is enough of a malt backbone to add balance. Hops dominate the aftertaste, though, and linger through the bitter, long lasting finish.

Bottle shared by nolankowal. Thanks a lot. Aroma was of a lot of apricot and tropical fruits. Flavor was bitter and malty with some tartness. to it. Pretty good balance for a double Ipa. I liked this one a lot.

UselessGdTaste (365) - Long Beach, California, USA - MAY 20, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2008 Nice IIPA, but for whatever reason, the hopping just isn’t working together for me. They seem to be pleasing at the first sip, but then they just coat your tongue and leave a reisdue that doesn’t seem to go away. As one reviewer said, it is distinct for sure. Addition: I find there to be a bit of a barkeyness to it...

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 20, 2007
(Bottle 65 cl) Courtesy of Storm. Hazy golden with a dense, off-white head. Fresh and very citrusy aroma. Solid body with some caramel malt and then a very distinct hoppy finish. 100507

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2010 Draft at Galaxy Hut. Much better than bottled. Copper pour off white head. Resiny, piny nose and sweet malt flavor balanced with a nicely hopped bitter finish.
