3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a clear golden with a thin white head. Honestly, this beer looks like what I expect an IPA to look like. Aroma of piney hops along with a bit of sweet vanilla. The sweetness to the aroma is different for an IPA, but not in a bad way. Flavor is a straight up hoppy IPA all around. Pine, grass, resin and all the rest. Just a bit of malt in the background. Though this beer has a lot of flavor and is high gravity, it is still very crisp in the mouth. Props to Green Flash for that. In Montana we don’t see to have that many hopped up west coast style IPAs, so this is a good one to find here.

Very nice. Hops: dry, subtle, but intense. I like this a lot, but I like the Palate Wrecker more. High carbonation. Overall great beer.

4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Golden with a thick, bubbly head, some lacing, and a hoppy, piney nose. Mildly-carbonated intro followed quickly by intense hoppiness that persists with a long, honey-sweet, brown sugar finish.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber from a case bought at work. Aroma is grapefruit, stinky caramel malt, candied citrus, flowers, perfume. Pours hazy orange with an off-white head with great retention; leaves some cobwebby lace. Taste is highly bitter with some candy sweetness backing it up. Flavors of citrus, cooked vegetables, alcohol. Not my kind of IPA.
