"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

Slightly hazy but crisp amber pour with small watery head. Smells of malt, a bit of honey and spice, alcohol, piney hop. Tastes quite thick, very very hoppy and resinous, ends on a slightly odd sour/musty note. Body is very oily. Reminds me a bit of the 8Wired Hopwired except not as balanced and more sour. Not bad but would be excellent if taste had more to it than big hops + sourness.

HKdIPA (228) - HONG KONG - MAY 31, 2014
Bottle from Bottle Shop at home. Bright orange translucent pour. Big resinous hops aroma. Taste is similarly very big - resin, vegetal, a bit sour. Very bitter, boozy finish. Not the most drinkable but not bad. Not sure I'd get again.

This is a really great IPA. Very drinkable especially for a DIPA. Very well balanced between the hops and grains. Great flavor and not overly bitter. Great beer.

I love the way a good DIPA looks. It’s like a well proportioned, classic, beauty. Well we have a good looker here. The body was clear, and a couple of shades deeper than amber. The head was two fingers thick at first, but settled down a little smaller afterwards, and there was a steady stream of gentle carbonation. The aroma was prototypical DIPA, in the form of grapefruit, and was quite strong, as it hit me even at an arms length. The first sip indicated a hop bomb, as the bitterness was bracing and bold. There was a lot of citric tasting hop acids, and they were supported by a biscuit like malt backing. The finish was bready, and the hops lingered on. This was a well crafted DIPA, and should be taken as a textbook example of the style. Everything here was just as it should be.

SPDickerman (943) - Texas, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Pours clear golden with a medium sized off-white head. Smells strongly of citrus, sweet orange, and hints of toffee. Taste is bitter with hints of citrus. Full-bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Green Flash Imperial IPA finishes with a lingering silky bitterness.

AgentAle (650) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 16, 2014
Aroma is a earthy and grapefruit hop character. Some lemon grass and straw here. Taste is clove and tart. Finishes smooth with surprisingly little tang. Body is a clear gold with a thin pearl head that retains fairly.

Lots of pine, resin, citrus hops with a slightly sweet background. Faintly effervescent clear yellow gold with a foamy bright white head that slowly fades leaving a good amount of lacing. Hoppy but not near as hoppy as it smells. A glassy sweetness that balances nicely with the strong sharpness. Mostly pine flavor with a little earthiness toward the finish.
