COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hop on and enjoy the rye of your life! Our imperial rye IPA is brewed in the name of our road warriors - the sales team that tirelessly hit the streets, traveling from town to town and pub to pub sharing the Green Flash experience. Road Warrior charge full flavor forward. Columbus and Mosaic hops, rich crystal and spicy rye malts pave the way for Mosaic and Amarillo dry hopping to boldly shine through in the finish. Raise a glass to those who never settle!

Brenhophead (683) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 22, 2014
330mL bottle. Pours a deep mahogany with an off white head. Lots off resinous pine in the aroma and some citrus fruit. Nice even flavour, very hard to detect the alcohol, lots of pine with resinous/earthy note on the back end. The bitterness is well balanced.

unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - JUL 20, 2014
Narrow, Green Flash 12oz bottle. Light copper color. Aroma of toasted grains, Cola, loads of citrus hops. Huge bitter flavor. Taste of hops. Some sweet malts underlay beneath hops. Toasted malt sugar character, but mostly hops.(4126)

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUL 14, 2014
Bottle:   Copper hued orange, moderate foamy tannish head, nice lacing.   Somewhat of a pithy tea leaf start, definite rye, but what this is lacking right away is any sort of sweetness.   Comes across dry, without anything sweet to balance it out.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Strong pith and peel towards the back, soft tea leaves too.   Really wished it were sweeter, more floral or candied citrus bits.   Clean, I will give it that, but not one I would reach for over and over.

OldGrowth (3118) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle, from Triangle Wine, Morrisville. Best by 11/13/14. Good aroma, sweet. Pine, grapefruit, and rye are dominant, some orange, tea leaves. Clean brownish orange color, ok head, ok lace. Bitter sweet flavor. Medium body, creamy oily mouthfeel, bitter dry finish. Good. Rye is strong, which gives it a strong grain build against the hops. It’s interesting, I might see where some don’t like the mix, but I like it. Real big sweet IIPA.

Bulk_Carrier (3407) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - JUL 13, 2014
Best by date of "11/13/14." This was poured into a snifter. The appearance has a nice dark red color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute in a concave fashion. The lacing looks real nice as it clings gracefully against the glass. The smell had a nice light Rye malt inside of a subtle piney/citrus bittersweet aroma. Some nice spicy notes settle underneath with the previously mentioned flavors to combine nicely. The taste took all of those previously mentioned flavors and combined them extremely well. The aftertaste had a nice long sweet Rye to spicy notes leading to a dry finish. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was sharp but still had a gentle creaminess to it. Overall, I say this was quite the complex beer as there’s a lot going on. Of course I would have this again.

22oz bomber. Dark Copper. Big Pine and Citrus nose. Bold Flavors, everything is full and hop foward, with a solid malt backbone. This has an overall spicyness with peppers. Great body.
