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

Tap@Akkurat. Grumlig gul vätska. Väldigt bra doft med massor av humle. Gillar tobak och den lätta anisaromen. Massiv humle och en stor maltkropp. Helhetsintrycket dras ner då avslutningen framhäver alkoholsmak, annars hade det blivit 4+.

VT (2527) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 19, 2016
Bomber. Pours a clear pale golden with a resilient white head. Aroma is grapefruit, lemon, pine, cedar and resin. Flavor is fruits, bubble gum, pine tree, grapefruit, lime and lemon. Finish is nice bitter punch, mostly fruity. Lingering residual sugars, as well as cedar and pine. Medium to full body, average carbonation. Great!

Vignale (3213) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 14, 2016
Drucken på fat på Bishop Gustav, Malmö. De sista dropparna ur fatet.En ganska fenolig DIPA vilket jag brukar ha svårt för men här funkar det ändå. Citruszest, mango, tallkåda och rejäl citrusbeska. Gott.

Bottle at home. Pours a clear amber gold with a medium active head, mostly made up of larger bubbles. Aroma is citrus, grass, slight strange chemical ’poppers’ scent. Taste is orange pith, citrus, slight funk, grassy, very slight stilton, slight chemical ’poppers’ taste, dry finish. I think this one has suffered badly from age, unfortunately.

drjoeng (738) - SINGAPORE - JUN 28, 2016
9%ABV. Imperial IPA. Poured out gold amber. 8°SRM. Nose had sweet ripe pineapple and sweet malt funk, with hard candy, taffy and light brown sugar. There are also pleasant deeply spicy aromas suggesting cilantro or scallions. Also nice pine and resin in the nose. Mouthfeel is deeply soapy. Palate has toasted malt flavors with Graham cracker, wheat toast with honey, with a richly spicy palate suggesting fennel, coriander, cilantro and with a strangely sweet umami suggesting yakitori. The palate is amazingly sweet on this one and at one point, I got an almost berry like sweetness/ Finish is long with deep rich bitter melon bitter laced with some mint, spice, and hyssop. Overall, a very very hoppy ride with a solid solid malt foundation. Kudos, Green Flash! Goes on Favorites List !

On tap at St. Augustine’s. Straw hazy color, white head. Aroms and taste are candied tropical fruits with resin notes. Same aftertaste. Perfrctly balanced beer. Excellent.

Poured from a 20 oz bottle a crystal clear orange. Beautiful to look at. The head is thin and white, quickly dissipating and leaving no lacing at all. Aromas are of grapefruit and mild pine. Medium bitter with a lingering bitter finish. I expected it to be more sticky based on the resin in the aroma. Very refreshing and easy to drink, but the alcohol content creeps up quickly, so I’m enjoying it by sipping slowly.

Pours a pretty blaze orange color. Aromas of grapefruit, citrus, and small amount of pine comes through. Hop flavors of grapefruit and citrus burst on the palate. Not much malt balance, which is great for hopheads. Love this intense hop forward brew!!!!
