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

spilledpint (351) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUL 27, 2012
Bomber from Sam’s. Pours a really nice hazy orange with a frothy one inch head. Great retention and lace. Looks gorgeous. Fresh pine and citrus aroma. Could be a bit more fragrant. Medium sweet taste with a dominant bitter pine finish. Thick sticky palate. Nice IIPA but not one of my favorites.

Bottle. Golden color. Aroma is strong, with citrus, booze, pine and peach. Taste is a real hop bomb, with lots of citrus, pine, caramel, booze and a nice hop punch. Great beer.

yourilevesque (404) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 21, 2015
Bière très orangée et affichant une mousse importante, épaisse, riche et des plus prometteuses! Au nez, je ressens du conifère et de l’alcool en abondance. Le liquide est froid et ne dégage absolument rien de chaleureux. En bouche le liquide est lourdement alcoolisé et présente des notes terreuses qui coupent rapidement dans une finale sans goût et ne laissant en bouche qu’une interminable amertume sans intérêt ni véritable saveur.

Bomber to glass. Clear golden-orange with nice head and lacing. Fruity citrus pine aroma not very strong. Hop forward with some bitterness in aftertaste. Great double IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

VinegarStroke (343) - Napa, California, USA - JUL 13, 2015
Bottle: Clear, golden, medium head and good lace. The nose is a little reductive or dank. Maybe too much pine for me. Very rich palate. Dry to off fry. Not sour and very bitter. Dense and long. Loads of hops and malt. Lacks polish and style.

Douberd (3192) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUL 13, 2015
(Green Flash Imperial IPA) Bottle 650 ml at home, served into a big tulip, ABV 9% Deep golden orange colour on the body, tall and thick white head with great retention. Aroma of tropical fruits, caramel, pine. Taste is nicely bitter albeit nothing extreme, with fruity hints, pine, caramel. Medium body with good carbonation. Standard DIPA but highly drinkable.

commonmac (676) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 10, 2015
On tap at The Happy Gnome with commonshawn although let the record show he had stopped drinking. Appearance is a dark orange with golden elements. Quarter finger head. Hoppy aroma with citrus and/or tropical fruit characteristics. Taste is citrus forward with a decent dose of hops. Approachable. Slight sweetness with a good effort put forth to hide the alcohol. Bitterness at the end but overall a pretty well balanced beer. Nothing stands out but I like it in general.
