3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 ounce bottle. Cloudy amber gold color. Large bubbly taupe head. Earthy hops mix with toasted caramel malt to present a complex aroma. Spicy hops dominate the palate, yet their is an underlying malt backbone than helps to balance this IIPA. Notes of celery seed, grass and turmeric linger in the finish. There is a funky undertone here as weíll that makes this ale a really unique experience. The bubbly head lasts right trough the last sip.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Village Wine and Spirits in Athens. Big, deep hop aroma -- piney, resiny, and with some rust notes. Crystal-clear medium straw, nicwe bumpy head. Great dark heavy caramel, rich and tasty / hops are smooth in mid palate / wonderful long hoppy finish. Medium body. Much less of a hop bombs than many of their brews. Maybe they are maturing and their beers are, too? ("Hop bombs are for kids!" -- just joking!) But the bitter tracks stay long in the aftertaste, Solid-bodied and tasty stuff.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap. Pours a golden color with minimal head. Grapefruity piney aroma. Resinous. Big hop characteristic up front. Very piney. I've had this beer many times both bottle and on tap. Tastes different this time. Finishes very abruptly. Good beer, but I've been spoiled with some of the beers I've had recently. I prefer green flashes west coast IPA over the imperial.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Pours fairly pale; no head, no lacing. Nose is somewhat grassy with some malt. Not as hoppy or bitter as I had expected. Rather light body. Malt comes through late, giving some heft to the finish. ABV is well-masked, but the taste--while good--is a bit disappointing compared to other Green Flash brews.
