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!

Jow (3226) - New York, USA - SEP 18, 2015
Bottle at home. Red pour almost no head. Nose is piney, some earth, and dark fruits. Tastes of cherry, pine, caramel, earth, some rye without over doing it, malty, some grapefruit rind. Big chewy palate. Not too sweet or bitter. Red fruits on finish.

BrewMstr (168) - Pleasant View, Utah, USA - SEP 15, 2015
Draft at falling rock. Dark amber color, white head. Mild malt aroma. Hop forward taste with a malt and rye finish. Tasted a little stale, maybe a bad or old keg?

weihenweizen (2888) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - SEP 15, 2015
Refrigerated brown 12 oz. bottle, best before November 12, 2015, poured into a glass. Dark Crimson with small beige head. Aroma is rye, medium body, medium carbonation, and some small-bubble lacing. Taste is rye, grassy hops, pine hops, dank, and bitter finish. Pretty heavy and not my kind of IIPA.

ClarkVV (5210) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 12, 2015
Undated bottle (which has a "Best Before" box on the label and yet no date there....) drunk 9/6/15.
Deep amber-orange with cherry-auburn tints and a light beige head that is full and fluffy, slowly receding to cover. High clarity, fairly well-filtered, their beers seem to be nowadays and certainly not bottle conditioned (if they ever were?).
Nonetheless, it’s got a deep, lush hop nose, with some slightly aggressive resin and a pinch of alcohol. Tons of fruitiness and almost a wintergreen-like note, with vanilla, cherry and light toffee emanating from the malts and providing a pretty good balance. I think the mosaic and amarillo really go along way for it not being overdone and while the Colombus still impart some pine and grapefruit, it’s pleasant enough, if a bit challenging.
The flavor is sweet, well-malted with cherry, vanilla, rye spiciness and again, full, lush, juicy citrus and pine, with some pineapple and a light woodiness that gives a little more subtle, enjoyable, unique flavor to the finish. Green Flash makes well-executed beers and even if a 9% rye DIPA is not in my wheelhouse, I can still respect it (and I did finish the whole beer fairly easily).

On tap at ChurchKey. Nice red body with medium head. Nose is skunky, toasty of cheese. Taste is sweet, bitter with roasty and toasty malts. Nice kick.
