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

Botella de 65 cl en el lúpulo. Junio de 2013. muy buena imperial ipa con sabores de cereales, ligeramente dulce y maltosa y un final amargo apreciable. Cuerpo medio con 9.4 vol que se notan bien. Muy buena y para repetir sin duda.

Medium amber, cloudy, dense lacing. Very full body, rich, smooth texture, full flavored, balanced, long palate. Bitter predominantly, which balances well the sweet background, Hoppy, citrusy. Great drink, very satisfying comfort food. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rand (1220) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 9, 2014
Bottle from erzbierschof.ch. Muddy coppery-orange beer with a pale ochre head. Fruity nose of citrus, orange-grapefruit, caramel. The mouth is oily, consistent with a creamy malt, biscuity and a taste of barley. There is a lot of fruity, peach, apricot, citrus, honey-barley sugar. The marmelade of orange and grapefruit is to crunch, salty point and notes of pin and flowers. A beer without blemish.

Green Flash never disappoints. Awesome west coast imperial. Nose of danky hops. Semi dry on the palate with hints on citrus, floral, pine, and resin. Thin pour with a lasting white head and light golden color. Solid offering!

MunBro (132) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 2, 2014
Cloudy orange pour with a big white head. Aroma of strong hops and pine. Very piney and tastes higher than 101 IBUs (although that isn’t a complaint!) Some nice citrus notes behind the pine. Well balanced and tasty! Bitter aftertaste.

Bomber from Elevated in south Minneapolis. Golden orange pour with a spotty frothy white head. Awesome aroma and taste of dank hops, citrus, resin, touch of cat pee in the nose. Full mouthfeel. Big ’ol tasty and aromatic DIPA - outstanding.

demitriustown (1033) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - MAR 1, 2014
Bomber: Aroma is big and slightly spicy hop note upfront and some what of a muddy note on the back end. Appearance is a golden with a slight hue of red intermixed and a thick white head. Taste is big on hops, nice pungent hop notes that really poke through. No real malt texture within this brew. Palate of medium carbonation with an aftertaste of slightly astringent hop notes. Overall, Nice Impy IPA. Big on hops which I like. Cheers!

22 oz bottle for 7 bucks. Pours hazy copper/orange with a fluffy white head. Aroma is huge pine and citrus hops with a malty backing. Taste is more in the realm of pine hops but with a slight citrus undertone leading to a strong lasting bitterness. Nothing subtle about this one. Body slightly above average with a creamy texture. Overall this is an impressive Imperial IPA. One of the better offerings from Green Flash, no doubt. Buy or die.
