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. Itís all about the hops!" -- Brewmaster Chuck Silva

Darwenus (659) - 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, Iíd still call it well balanced because of how different the front end is from the back.

pivo (2641) - GERMANY - DEC 21, 2014
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.

phikus (96) - syracuse, New York, USA - OCT 28, 2014
Somewhere between the west coast and the green bullet this one lost me a little. The arome was citrus zest with some pine, but nothing like the west coast IPA bouquet. The flavor is what just doesnít do it for me. I really donít like the hop flavor but donít know how to describe it. Maybe grassy. It is however another well balanced well made green flash

jookos (3609) - FINLAND - OCT 22, 2014
Bottle@wka. Copper golden clear. Caramels, tropical exotics, fresh berries, pines. Pretty nice fruity hoppy nose. Smooth body. Sweets, bitters. Cream corny caramel malty. Fruity, light spicy iipa. Good balance, possibly bit on the bitter side, hides the abv quite well. Slight floral meadowy finish.
