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

22oz, consumed on a hot sticky summer night, which is quite like the beer, this beer slams a ton of hops, however also yields a rather sticky resiny mouthfeel which lingers for quite some time, but the best cure, just drink it fast :D Good West Coast IIPA.

masonjer (609) - Holt, Michigan, USA - AUG 20, 2007
Poured a golden color into a pint. My buddy brought this back from California so I was happy to share with him. Smell is everything you expect in an DIPA, nice pine and floral hops, enticing citrus and tropical fruit. flavor didn’t dissapoint, tropical fruits came through, balanced with a sharp hops, citrus, all balanced by a distant malt backbone.

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 18, 2007
Brought a bottle to Fralo’s in Leon Springs. Cloudy orange color with creamy head. Nose of grapefruit, lemons, pine and malts. Taste of creamy caramel malts mixed with the typical glorious flavors of a well built IPA. Not overly bitter on the finish. Very nice.

asedzie (786) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 16, 2007
Bottle. Pours hazy golden amber with creamy off-white head. Awesome retention. Aroma is pine needles, resiny, juniper berries, as well as definite fruitiness, some passion fruit, a toffee-like malt buried beneath , but more and more noticeable as it warms. Flavor is surprisingly balanced and light. Toasted toffee malt taste upfront, lots of floral and sharply bitter fruitiness and citrus – lemon, apricot, lime – throughout. Finish is slightly soapy citrus. Surprisingly, alcohol is not at all noticable. Strong bitterness lingers for a long while.

jgentgesdo (692) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 16, 2007
Pours hazy gold with a medium white head. Nose is intense grassy and floral hops. Flavor of strong grassy and floral hops with a finishing grapefruit hops note. Intensely bitter. Very limited malt background that only shows up as it warms, and then only towards the end. Endless bitter finish. Oh so good.

mike mcneil (660) - St Augustine, Florida, USA - AUG 14, 2007
Pours a very slightly hazy amber-orange hue producing a tight, thick huge head. Nice foam retention and sheets of lacing noted throughout the glass. Beautiful aromas of grapefruit and orange rinds, pineapple, sun-drenched pine needles, lemon zest and a touch of caramel swirled in malted milk. Palate is quite full, velvety and slightly oily; has a nice chewiness in the mouthfeel. Flavors are those of a classic and well done west coast IPA. Tons of citrus hops swarm over the tastebuds on the initial sip. A moderately welcomed and balanced caramel-toffee sweetness intervenes to render a nice balance. A faint spiciness and alcohol warmth appears in the background. Very drinkable and solid rendition of the style.
