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

Essentially everything I had expected, particularly after having tasted their regular IPA. Sticky, citrusy, etc. Fun to drink, but I could not get over the strangest, most out of place onion flavor. Onion? I am not kidding. Very odd.

Bottle. Aroma just explodes out of this IIPA. Tons of hops in it. Lively, well carbonated pour thatís got the expected orange color. Caramel and lemon in the front end with a huge hop wallop in the back end. A little too much hoppiness, maybe.

AmEricanbrew (5575) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - MAR 2, 2007
22 oz bottle. Light amber color with a thin but persistant head. What a great smell , probably the most complex ,intense floral hop and malt aroma Iíve experienced in a Imperial IPA or any other beer. The taste was equally as unique as the smell. Complex floral hops and malts meshing beautifully. A great brew here.

draft at najas - first smell and taste told me the same thing....grass. definitely grassy, herbal hops easy to drink, though nothing that set my world on fire. solid, not spectacular IIPA

Pour is a clear amber with a nice white head and good lacing. Very nice aroma of hops, caramel, grapefruit, citrus, and malt. Flavors of caramel, citrus, sweet malt, fruit, and bitter hops. Thin to medium mouthfeel for the style. A very nice refreshing IIPA.

mkobes (2140) - paramus, New Jersey, USA - FEB 25, 2007
On draft at Grey Lodge in Philly. Golden in color with a nice fluffy white head that left a nice lacing. Citrusy hoppy malty aroma. Grapefruit, piney, and orangey hops. Nice hop bitterness. Tart fruity grassy flavor. Nice floral notes. Finish is bitter. Full bodied. Well balanced. Crisp and refreshing. Great.

carl4beer (522) - Fairfax Station, Virginia, USA - FEB 24, 2007
Pours golden with white head. Aroma of tart grapefruit and pine. bitter hoppy mouthful with a long lingering bitterness. Very in your face brew. Maybe will mellow out with age...

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - FEB 22, 2007
February 8th, 2007 bottling. Super fresh. Light gold, very nice head. Fairly nice hop nose but not super great. Awfully drinkable. It goes down super easy. Nice body. Nice hop flavor. A good Double IPA, but far from great, especially for being so fresh.

ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 21, 2007
Way drinkable, high-octane IIPA. Odd combination of Christmas wreath, and freshly mown lawn with a balsam note in the nose; some musty, bubble-gum fruitiness and wafflely malts; moderate, creamy body. Very nice, though a bit odd.
