COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"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

Cybercat (2985) - Georgia, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Pours a nice clear amber with a thick, if not too persistent, eggshell head. Aroma is seriously hoppy, with firm yeasty and grapefruit notes. Fierce flavor is hoppy but surprisingly not very bitter, with a strong and sour grapefruit tone and a yeasty underpinning plus an alcohol bite one cannot ignore. Texture is smooth, fairly firm, fairly fizzy, leaving a hoppy, yeasty, and slightly slimy finish. Darn good, if not outstanding - still, go ahead and put it away.

LearninBeer (333) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - JAN 5, 2014
The aroma is hops - citrus, floral & grass. Pours a golden yellow with big frothy white head, slowly diminishing and excellent lacing. The taste is bitter. The body is light to medium, the texture creamy, the carbonation lively and the finish a long bitter. Very Good!!

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle At Public House Vancouver. Pours a deep orange with a small white head. Nose has thick pine, grapefruit and toffee malts. Taste is a bitter pine hop bomb. Huge hop resin. Massive pine bitterness that lasts. Still the booze is hidden very well. Very solid dipa! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

It is as it is expected a big hoppy monster from Green Flash. Nice and standard but very well done.

zacgillbanks (1835) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2013
Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. This is a golden beer with a pineapple and orange marmalade flavours, sharp citrus notes, sarsaparilla and a zesty pine on the finish. Superb!

realjb29 (27) - olean, New York, USA - DEC 30, 2013
Excellent aroma with strong notes of pine, citrus, mango, grapefruit, and papaya. Decent clarity yellowish amber hue with an excellent white head. Taste is incredible like biting into a a fresh pine cone that has been sitting in a fruit bowl of graprefruit, orange, mango, papaya,. The aroma and taste are equal. A nice balance of malts flavors add complexity to this immensely hoppy ale. The malts tones are of honey, brown sugar, toasted malts, caramel with hints of toffee and leather. Excellent mouth feel they do a great job at hiding the alcohol in this double IPA!! Overall, ten star!!!
