Bottle. Pours a hazy amber with a thick foamy white head. Nice sweet and bitter aroma, of citrus and hops, with a hint of malt. Taste is quite bitter, of hops, citrus, malt, flowers, and sugar. Lingering bitterness. Pretty tasty.

On tap at Toronado gave a very cool murky orange hue with a good white head. Yeast and citrus on the nose. Medium body with a good mouthfeel. Bready, slightly fruity citrus flavors. Good solid hoppiness and bitter finish. Alcohol not super apparent. Would get some more for sure. Yum.

Bomber shared with MatSciGuy. Pours orange gold with a nice head of fine bubbles, sticking to the glass and robust. Clovey and yeasty taste I like in this style. Spritzy on the tongue with some bitterness that lasts after swallowing.

22oz bottle from sparky27. Pours a cloudy darker straw yellow with a medium white head that laces the glass on the way down. Nose is spicy Belgian sweet with some citrus pine notes and clove. Spicy pepper taste with some floral citrus and a bit soapy. Like most Green Flash that I have had, the abv is detectable. Decent brew.

22 ounce bottle from Brusin’ Ales. Pours hazy light orange with some sticky white head. The nose has plenty of Tripel spice and yummy citrus hops in the nose. The flavor has some citrus soap, pine, pepper, and clove. The soap detracts for me a bit. Medium, and easy drinking body. Small carbonation bubbles. Dry finish with a bit of heat. Overall though, I really do like this beer.

A- Pours an opaque orange/apricot hue, head is minimal now but was solid at earlier tastings, slight lacing sticks to the glass
S- Nose is sweet and spicy, banana, citrus, and Belgian candy are up front, tones of clove, vanilla, grass, touch of funky yeast and alcohol
T- Initial taste that hits is sweet candy and spices intermixed with citrus/floral hop bitterness, waves of earth and herbal tones enter midway, finishes with warming alcohol and dry grassy hops
M- Medium/full-bodied style, oily texture, good carbonation
D- This is definitely a thick and chewy IPA with considerable complexity and intermingling taste sensations, the alcohol is present in the aftertaste and I probably wouldn’t drink more than two in a row; overall a very interesting combination of styles that is exciting and innovative

Aroma of brown sugar and clove. An amber pour with a foamy off white head and lace. Perfumy, clovish, brown sugar flavor. Medium bodied with good carbonation. A damn fine beer.
