"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

hoppy and tasty the way a good pale ale should be...sweet at first and then results in a bitter hint after you’ve put the glass down...good, clean aroma...worth a shot if you like pale ales...

Mep3222 (994) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - NOV 27, 2015
Tropical piney hop aroma. Taste is malty with lots of hop balance. Still finishes with slight piney resin hop, but slight sweet too from the malt. Fairly balanced but hops are a bit overpowering. Good double ipa, and get some nice pineapple hops in the finish, but still feel it is a bit unbalanced?? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
