Looks decent. Not much of a smell at all. Tastes good; much hopper than it smells. Mouthfeel is good. Solid, nut not special.

Deep amber clear pour thin creamy off white head lots of striped lacing ..... aroma of piney and citrusy hops, hop oils and bitter rinds .... taste is bitter and rindy, but just right so that the piney/citrusy hops come through .... mouthfeel is oily .... some caramel malt on the backend but a nice evenflow of bitter hops from beginning till the dry lingering bite it givesin the finish .... solid and as advertised ... abv hidden well

Nice strong aroma of bitter IPA. Flavor is obviously bitter IPA... but when you add in lots of sugars from the high alcohol, its not that much a slap in the face. For a hop head... this is a dream... for a rookie a night mare. The head lingers and is impressive.

12oz bottle from Antioch Fine Wine & Liquors. Pours a crystal clear amber color with a white head and some lacing. Aroma is hoppy, grassy, pine. A little heavy on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, bread, with a grassy, bitter hop finish.

Tulip at ITAP on release day. A nice looking beer that had plenty of copper and brown. Opaque. A big citrus nose jumped from the glass. That was also tasted and it is big. Bitterness is significant, too. Caramel malts almost keep up. My palate died happy.

UPDATED: SEP 17, 2012 12 oz bottle from Total Wine and More in Western Henrico. The ale poured a very attractive copper color with a nice but not excessive head that laced down the glass. This is major IPA. The higher ABV and IBU make for a classic beverage. The alcohol is well desguised and the citrus aroma hits you immediately. The beer is well balancd and definitely an ale to sip and enjoy. The carbonation is average and the ale has much character. The finish leaves you wanting for more. What is the next from Green Flash? Had another on draught at Mekong in Richmond. An excellent IPA,

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2013 Tap @ Yard House, Las Vegas 19/04/12. Pours a dark amber with a large, yellowish-brown head. Aroma is pith, caramel, pine. Taste is somewhat sweet with caramel in the beginning with the superbly stiff and bitter hops taking over with pith and some pine in the finish. Palate is surprisingly smooth and full. Very pleasant.

12oz bottle, split 3 ways. Thin khaki head. Clear amber color. Bit of lace. Very nice assertive hoppy nose. Nice grapefruit aromas. Big bitter taste. Good light carbonation and dry texture. Delightful

On tap at Ray's. Clear light golden, decent off white head. Nose was fresh green, resin, grapefruit. Huge bitterness and dry with tons of hop resin. Pretty unbalanced but hey, it's a hop bomb.
