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

Derek881 (1004) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - AUG 22, 2012
Poured from the bottle into a trumpet glass to drink. The beer had a hazy light straw-amber color with a good-sized, foamy white head with good retention, along with great cling and lacing. The aroma featured notes of citrus, pine, spices, and a nice floral component as well, with slight touches of candy and sugar. Its taste was mostly bitter with a grainy-citrus flavor, but it also had a slight sugary sweetness at first, and a slight sour effect at the end. The beer was lively and fizzy with average carbonation, and a quite dry but fairly full mouthfeel.

Shared bomber, shaker glass. Murky medium brown. Slick, bitter malty palate covers the high ABV. Not something I would drink a lot of but I enjoyed it.

scoth (491) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 11, 2014
Pours clear amber-orange with a medium beige head, good retention, very fine lacing. Strong delicious pine resin aroma, with notes of biscuit, and grass. Medium body, crisp, dry. Mildly sweet, medium-strong bitter finish, with pine lingering for some time. Big and brash, itís all about the hops but it has enough malt to hold it together nicely.

Draft. Deep gold. Slight head. Aroma of rubber, diesel, citrus, grass, slight pine. Taste is grassy, bit of onion, orange zest, sweet, cereal. Bit of booze burn. Slightly sticky finish. Not bad for a DIPA.

On tap, poured a clear gold hue w/ a large white diminishing head and some sticky lacing. Moderate hop aroma. Initial flavor is moderate sweet w/ a bold bitter finish. Tastes are straw and grass. Full bodied balanced mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Parry's. Pours an orange-honey body and a thin white head. Makes a good lace down the glass. Aroma is of pine resin and big hops. Tastes of fresh hops (a couple of varieties!). This is a very bitter IPA. Delicious. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

So just popped the top and got punched in the face with a blast of pine. Thatís how this one is going to go. Iíve had this several times but this one particular bottles splendor needs to be reviewed. The aroma is TONS of pineapple and pine as promised by the label. Literally telling me what to be excited for and delivering. Taste is nuts. Just pine pine pine pine pine pine hops hops hops hops hops hops tropical fruits and a super dry finish that leaves your palate scorched and itís awesome. This is what an imperial IPA is supposed to be like. It is well balanced and has that hop monster title it can actually live up to. I get really excited about all these green flash beers they are world class. Exceptional brewery and beer. Cheers.
