12fl.oz. bottle. Pours a hazy copper with a medium, frothy, long lasting, beige head that laces. Hoppy, grapefruit aroma with caramel malt and grass. Sweet fruity flavour with grapefruit, caramel malt, grass, pine and resin with a hint of rye in a dry, bitter finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Well brewed and delicious.

그린 플래쉬 브루잉 - 로드 워리어 9% ABV 임페리얼 라이 아이피에이를 마셔본적이 없어 그냥 집어든 맥주. 일반적인 임페리얼 IPA와 흡사하나 테일에 라이 맥주의 시큼함이 한번 더 잠깐 치고 올라오는 정도.
콜럼부ǲ 모자익 홉. 크리스탈과 호밀 몰트의 조화 위로 모자익과 아마릴로 의 드라이호핑을 더한 맥주. 로드워리어라 작명은 동네 펍마다 자동차로 이동하며 세일즈하는 그린 플래쉬 외판원들의 노고를 기리는데서 지어졌다고 한다.

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?

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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, itís 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, itís 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.
