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

Bottle at keg 229 NYC. Pours a tan brown color with a light look but the taste is extremely hoppy and potent. Wouldn't say it's well balanced but for hop lovers

I mean, come on! I know I can count on Green Flash for a hoppy, bitter, delicious IPA, double or not. This Imperial IPA pours a dark golden amber color; it has a one-finger head and has nice lacing and alcohol legs. Aroma is grapefruit, orange zest, onion and garlic, dankness. Taste follows the nose nicely. It reminds me a lot of Enjoy by 4/20/14. Super dank, very bitter and dry, full bodied beast. Very good IIPA when fresh, like this one is.

Pours a golden slightly unclear beer with a good white head. Smells tropical fruits, sweetish. Tastes the same bit floral. Average carbo, medium body and a sticky texture.

Very enjoyable beer, I would like darker appearance for an IPA, as well as a more floral hops aroma component ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
