"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

Poured from a 22oz from Whole Foods. Color is a bit cloudy. Aroma is definitely hoppy, I get mostly woody, musty almost with floral hints. Taste is a classic IPA, difference here is this one masks the 9.4%. Finish is slightly sweet/bitter. Very well balanced!

Tasted from a bomber. It poured a hazy golden amber with a frothy white head and minimal lacing. Nice hop aroma with a hint of lemon zest. Well balanced hop taste with a touch of bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Citrus and floral aroma. The palate is sticky and resinous. Flavor was strong and hoppy, but surprisingly it was less bitter than I expected for a 101 IBU beer. Very drinkable for such a big beer.

firemarshal (190) - North Carolina, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Pours cloudy amber with orange hue. Thin head and light lacing. Aroma is orange and citrus floral hops, pine nuts, a distinct yeast note, and wheat/grass in there as well. Flavor is a massive hops kick in the mouth. Pine, citrus, licorice, clove, basil, honey and pepper. Mouthfeel is alcoholic, astringent, and bitter. This is a great example of DIPA. Thank you, Sir! May I have another!

blackflag321 (552) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - AUG 13, 2014
Shared bomber, shaker glass. Murky medium brown. Slick, bitter malty palate covers the high ABV. Not something I would drink a lot of but I enjoyed it.

scoth (573) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 11, 2014
Pours clear amber-orange with a medium beige head, good retention, very fine lacing. Strong delicious pine resin aroma, with notes of biscuit, and grass. Medium body, crisp, dry. Mildly sweet, medium-strong bitter finish, with pine lingering for some time. Big and brash, itís all about the hops but it has enough malt to hold it together nicely.

RABinCO (1399) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - AUG 7, 2014
Draft. Deep gold. Slight head. Aroma of rubber, diesel, citrus, grass, slight pine. Taste is grassy, bit of onion, orange zest, sweet, cereal. Bit of booze burn. Slightly sticky finish. Not bad for a DIPA.
