"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

VinegarStroke (345) - Napa, California, USA - JUL 13, 2015
Bottle: Clear, golden, medium head and good lace. The nose is a little reductive or dank. Maybe too much pine for me. Very rich palate. Dry to off fry. Not sour and very bitter. Dense and long. Loads of hops and malt. Lacks polish and style.

Douberd (3461) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUL 13, 2015
(Green Flash Imperial IPA) Bottle 650 ml at home, served into a big tulip, ABV 9% Deep golden orange colour on the body, tall and thick white head with great retention. Aroma of tropical fruits, caramel, pine. Taste is nicely bitter albeit nothing extreme, with fruity hints, pine, caramel. Medium body with good carbonation. Standard DIPA but highly drinkable.

commonmac (726) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 10, 2015
On tap at The Happy Gnome with commonshawn although let the record show he had stopped drinking. Appearance is a dark orange with golden elements. Quarter finger head. Hoppy aroma with citrus and/or tropical fruit characteristics. Taste is citrus forward with a decent dose of hops. Approachable. Slight sweetness with a good effort put forth to hide the alcohol. Bitterness at the end but overall a pretty well balanced beer. Nothing stands out but I like it in general.

radio_nowhere (1231) - Maryland, USA - JUN 29, 2015
Bomber into snifter glass, clear golden-amber color with white head. Aroma notes of earthy/pine hops, grass, lightly floral and caramel malt sweetness. Taste adds resin, some grapefruit, light spices and herbal hop bitterness. Medium-heavy body, low-moderate carbonation, dry, creamy with lingering earthy/pine bitterness. Very pine heavy DIPA, unsure of age due to poor "best by" labeling. If this is older I would love to try one fresh!

Christpuncher (2187) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 18, 2015
Hoppy and pine notes dominate this ipa. Slight boozy bite at the finish. Smells earthy and piney. Pours gold with a white head. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jamaty (1447) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 4, 2015
Ambar brillante, anaranjado con un dedo de espuma. Aroma espléndido de vainilla, caramelo, pino y frutas tropicales. Sabor espectacular, con explosión de lúpulos: cítricos al principio, mango, flores, pino. Debajo un sólido esqueleto de malta (caramelo y vainilla) que proporcionan una base de dulzor para (intentar) compensar los intensos lúpulos. Cremosa en boca, suave con carbonatación media. Complejidad y balance casi perfectos.

madchemist83 (189) - USA - JUN 3, 2015
Slight floral, citrus aromas. Golden amber with white head that dissipates quickly. Solid bitterness balanced well with malt sweetness. Slight alcohol notes. Mostly resin and pine in the taste. Ok overall. Far better examples out there.

Pours a clear gold with some foam. Traditional IPA nose - floral, citrus. Taste is heavy on the hops up front - no fooling around. There is a touch of grapefruit and then...bam - the bitterness kicks in. It's good - would like a little more balance between citrus and hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
