4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at home. Hazy orange colour. Large white head. Lovely hoppy and bitter, yet fruity and sitrusy aroma. Grapefruit, peach, sitrus. Piney hops and some malt sweetness.
Very hoppy and bitter, but balanced with sweet caramell maltflavour like a proper IIPA. No bottling date, but this was likely bottled 8 - 12 months ago. Still good though. Would love to taste this one fresh. Will have to travel across the atlantic for that.

I wasnít an IPA guy until recently but this is outstanding. Some try too hard and over hop but the aroma and balance in this San Diego blend is a new bench mark for me.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle to plastic cup (Iíll try not to let that affect my rating).
Aroma of grapefruit, something akin to malt, but perhaps a bit fruitier, cherry, spruce, and peach. Clear light amber with a long lasting thin, creamy, off white head. Taste is very tropical fruity, with pepper, grapefruit, some red pepper, a touch of chili, and a whole whack of bitterness. All that fruitiness balances the huge hoppiness quite well.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber pours a hazy golden orange with one-fingr white head and some lacing. Aroma it that of the usual suspects for a DIPA: lots of grapefruit and pine resin, Taste is bitter with lots of caramel sweetness in the middle, and definite dankness in the finish, at least until it warms up a while. Body is full,with a sticky mouthfeel. This one exceeded my expectations.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at keg 229 NYC. Pours a tan brown color with a light look but the taste is extremely hoppy and potent. Wouldn't say it's well balanced but for hop lovers

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
I mean, come on! I know I can count on Green Flash for a hoppy, bitter, delicious IPA, double or not. This Imperial IPA pours a dark golden amber color; it has a one-finger head and has nice lacing and alcohol legs. Aroma is grapefruit, orange zest, onion and garlic, dankness. Taste follows the nose nicely. It reminds me a lot of Enjoy by 4/20/14. Super dank, very bitter and dry, full bodied beast. Very good IIPA when fresh, like this one is.
