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

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.

Jimthechap (1483) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 25, 2014
Tasted from tap at The Twisted Hop. Itís a little hazy in a golden amber body with a white head that left a good lace behind. The aroma has alcohol freshness, rich orchard-fruit and spruce happiness as well as the oiliness, body and obscene bitterness that typifies the style. Among massive brutes, the beer is a massive brute of peculiarity. Green Flash havenít cut any corners and the result is a memorable glass of hippy anger and a sudden requirement to have a little lie down.

Bomber. Pours a hazy light copper orange. Aroma is citrus and hops, some floral. Taste is an earthy combo of grapefruit, honey and hopes, a slight spice character. Very nice!

A wonderful IPA, with great citrus and honey notes. Well balanced. Tart and crisp but not dry on the ending. I love this beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Philym (698) - St Neots, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2014
Appearance: Clear golden/amber with 2 finger thick white head. Aroma: Lychee, mango, apricot, kumquat, grapefruit and biscuit. Slight hop muskiness. Taste: Medium bitterness, low/medium sweetness and low sourness, however, the sourness develops further in the finish. Palate: Thick smooth texture, medium body, average carbonation, lingering astringent bitter sweet grapefruit pith, kumquat, fruity finish with an increasing sourness at the end. Comments: Delicious and glass lace.

On tap at Tapwerks. Pours a clear deep amber with an egg shell white head that dissipates completely. Aroma has strong pine and resin notes with a syrupy grain backbone. Flavor starts with bitter pine and finishes with a combination of sweet grain and onion.

2 oz Bomber. The beer pours to medium golden color with a medium white head. The aroma has pine, resin, citrus & some grapefruit notes to it. The taste is medium in body with a nice smooth taste upfront with a nice hop bitter finish. Overall a very good DIPA.
