"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

Bottle 66 cl @ Karhisma Birroteca (Piedimonte Matese - Caserta, Italy). I’ll be blowed if this aroma isn’t... uh... well, I don’t think I’m drinking a bad batch, but it’s strange since no one in the last three rating pages didn’t write anything about the frighteningly pot aroma. Yeah. POT! Listen, I’m not a jointer, never had seriously, but surely able to catch its smell. And Green Flash IIPA aroma is unambiguously that. Let’s put on Bob Marley, guys. Anyway: also has a massive hops and piny aroma, oregano and earth notes. Grapefruit like fizzy gumdrops. Great freshness. Good orange-blonde appearance almost clear, two foam fingers. Body is medium, perfectly carbonated (a little fizzy) and without any trace of booze. Citrus, orange, lime, vegetables, tropical fruit, pomegranate, pot again (Jamming...) a touch of sugar. Although the 9.4% it’s really refreshing, even if not session-one. Finish is herbaceous, resinous, not strong but lasts and gives a pleasant feeling, Maybe due to Super Skunk? Hahaha...

tfontana (224) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 5, 2015
Keg pour at Powder Keg Beer & Chili Festival. Aroma is herbs, hay hops. Appearance is golden brown pour, mild sparkle, attractive thick two-finger width white head and lacing. Taste is medium bitter balanced with sweet and corn chip. Palate is medium bodied, average to lively carbonation with bitterness felt between the teeth at the back of the mouth, pleasant long bitter finish. Overall, an attractive, tasty beer with good mouth feel. A little weak on aroma.

yourilevesque (580) - 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
