"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

Pours a nice golden color with brilliant clarity. Excellent lacing and hop flavor. Strong hop aroma and an excellent choice.

UXO (148) - CANADA - APR 27, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy light orange yellow with one finger of loose white head diminishing to a thin skim and light lacing. Nose is emphatically hoppy, mostly citrus with some floral and leafy tones, a little earthy dankness. Taste opens with sweet malt, quickly followed by sharp citrus and finishing bitter. Mouth feel is medium, with sustained light carbonation and a lingering mouth coating bitter finish. A true West Coast DIPA.

pictoman (456) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 23, 2014
Poured from 1 pint 6 fl oz bottle. Clear golden yellow with white head. Light citrusy grapefruit hops and some honey on the nose. Taste has some caramel malt with a light fruity sweetness combined with resiny hop flavour. Very full mouthfeel.

EithCubes (4756) - New Jersey, USA - APR 18, 2014
Bomber, in that great, distinctive Green Flash shape. Huuuge hop aroma right from the crown removal, dusty and green, lightly citrus, but with very nice floral and vegetal notes, resin and light oil, cream. Lightly hazy orange pour with mild carbonation and a dense rocky beige head. Taste is strongly sweet but that’s met quickly by strong (but still lesser) bitterness and finds a bready-yeasty balance after the collision. Somewhat sugary in the match with the mild alcohol, more form numbing than anything else, though there’s a little heat after some volume. Resinous, spicy, and earthy hops, not at all surprised to see Nugget in here, and there’s some slightly disappointing grapefruit and g.f. peel. Full body, slightly soft, certainly not too aggressive, and creamy rather than rasping. Decent but unspectacular (unsure of age); I’d have again but wouldn’t buy.

Gurthnar (1568) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 11, 2014
Bottle. Aroma fresh crisp hops, grassy, citrusy, orange, light resin. Clear golden to amber colour. Taste is assertively hoppy with high bitterness and a decent malt backbone. Orange, zest, grassy. ery refreshing despite the alcohol, which is hidden well. Moderate body.

Bomber. Best by 7/27/14 date. I hate when they do that. Tell me when it was bottled, ill determine the best by date. Some breweries say 4 months some 6. Stone is the only one who gets it right. 35 days. Even that’s too long. Sorry for the rant. This is a florallly double IPA. Bitterness is pretty damn hight. I taste every one of the 101 IBUs. Maybe more. Floral, herbal, maybe a bit earthy. The hops dominate. Just I’m more of a pine or citrus hop guy. Some of that floral ones come off like a basket of pit pouri. Middle of the road double IPA. Drinkable. But not going to buy again. Pretty much like every other green flash beer.

Dohny (207) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 7, 2014
Poured from bottle. Clear dark yellow collor with white head. Strong pleasant hoppy aroma (flowers, pine). Flovir; fruity, resin. Ballance towards bitterness. Medium body, moderate carbonation.

scotchzombie (318) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - APR 6, 2014
Pours orange-copper and clear with a foamy white head that leaves lacing as it disappates to a nice thick coating. Aroma is caramel malt and sweet floral hops. Taste is heavy caramel malt lifting into piney bitter hops that resinate. Aftertaste is the bitta. Low sweetness and higher bitterness than the typical IIPA.

fajry (428) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 5, 2014
Flaska. Jemne jantarova farba. Pena pekna biela. Vona krasna ovocna s jemnymi chlebovymi a citrusovymi tonmi. Lahko citit travove vone. Telo piva je pekne vyvazene. Lahko karamel, citrusy a sladka dochut. Horkost, tak akurat. Prijemne pitie.
