"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

Darwenus (673) - Virginia, USA - FEB 5, 2015
A very bitter, very juicy, strong IPA. It pours a full, rich, orange gold color; medium, creamy head, average lace. The aroma is citrus, candied pineapple, grass, buttery malt... this is what west coast double IPAs smell like when they smell really good. The flavor is strong and tangy up front, and on the swallow there is a very bitter flood of hops. As hoppy as this is, I’d still call it well balanced because of how different the front end is from the back.

Lovely gold color. Low head. Light hop smell. Starts slow with hops starting small but right away, then exploding into a mouth filling bitter. One dimensional but good.

Light haze to a orange/amber pour. Aroma is citrus, malt and a sweet wort. Taste is candy sweet citrus and a bitter bite. Don’t think I’ve tasted one very close to this. Good effort.
