3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from bottle amber with a thin tan head. Smells of candied sugar, orange rind, grapefruit, and slight pine. Tastes of slight citrus, with mostly resinous hop bitterness. Smells much better than it tastes in my opinion.

Good beer. Probably my favorite from green flash. I had heard good things and it did not disappoint.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is an overwhelmingly hoppy beer, hence the name. It has the same strong quality that I’ve seen in everything from Green Flash. This is a hophead’s dream beer, but it may be too much for drinkers who trend more malty (syrupy) in their preferences. I would recommend this beer to hopheads and drinkers who like bitter in their beer. At 9.5% ABV, this is a good sipping beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from the bottle, not very cold, but not warm. Very clear. Nice orange red colour. Lots of head and lacing. Aroma is very grassy with fresh wet hop character. Flavor is very bitter. Also lots of grassy earthy tones some heat from theabv. The palate is thick and oily. Finishes with a odd flavor that i get in some hoppy beers. Very dry finish. Overall a hop monster! Really different than the malt forward beers I’ve been drinking lately.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear deep golden pour with a frothy white head. Looks nice. Big aroma of juicy, citrusy, piney hops. A touch of sweet caramel but this one shines hops. Flavors were big, bold and bitter. A bit on the abrasive side, doesn’t have that smoothness of a truly great double. Huge grassy, pine sol like finish that ended bittersweet. A true uninhibited hop bomb, by definition. I guess I dug it, maybe a bit too bitter and unbalanced though.

On tap at Oblivion Taproom in Orlando. Pours a dark orange with an off white head and sweet hop and citrus filled aroma. Taste is massive hop bitterness up front with citrus and grapefruit notes with an equally bitter, long finish. Great DIPA, tons of hoppy bitterness
