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!

JJ and tasting. The opposite of what you think an IPA should be. Malt forward..like fast forward. Pours Amber, smells like malt, tastes like malt and gives a little hoppy after taste. More of an amber ale than IPA for this duo. Despite the low-ish score, I'd buy it again.

UXO (769) - CANADA - FEB 25, 2015
Pours clear medium amber with three fingers of light beige head diminishing gradually to a thick cap and chunky lacing. (4/5) Nose is caramel malt, rye, mild citrus, black pepper. (6/10) Taste is mild sweet, strong bitter, mild peppery spice. (8/10) Medium body, moderate carbonation, with an off-dry building bitter finish. (3/5) I do like me a rye IPA - the sharpness of the rye malt tends to play well with the traditional IPA hop bitterness. And I usually enjoy Green Flashís offerings. Thatís not to say I donít like this one - I do - but itís just a little on the aggressive side when it comes to the bittering. Good, but not their best. (14/20)

12oz bottle. Dark amber pour with a nice lacy head of white. Aroma is nice resiny hops and chewy malt. Flavors are also nice. Quite tasty.

Christian (11722) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 18, 2015
Dark amber with a lasting off-white head. Aroma of citrus and pine hops, with sweet, spicy malt notes. Sweet, bready, malty flavour, with hoppy character, and a delicious bitter finish. Is this the first time I have a truly imperial rye ipa? Itís a great match

GranvilleTim (1778) - Granville, Illinois, USA - FEB 17, 2015
Mahogany pour with a beige head. Aroma is pineapple, spicy rye. The aroma seems to invite you in for the first sip. A cornucopia of flavor- spicy rye hits first, followed by the pineapple, then a final rush of rye again that lasts long on your palette. Hooray Green Flash! I hope this beer is available locally forever. Nice lacing.

nuplastikk (5035) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 14, 2015
12oz bottle. Unfiltered thick orange-red-brown body. Foamy, respectable off-white head. Oily, resinous rye and hemp aroma. A big, bold, west-coasty beer. Oily, resinous, piny NW hops. Chewy rye. This is a monster of a beer, a could be called a Barleywine if they chose to call it that. A pretty solid beer.

Bottle. Pours a dark amber brown with an off white head. Rich, pleasantly funky veg aroma. Medium to full body, medium carbonation. Caramel, lemon, toast, pine, wood, grapefruit... Good balance and pretty tasty.

riversideAK (5738) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - FEB 5, 2015
Big spicy rye nose on top of caramel and big time herbal hops. Black pepper and a hint of citrus fruit. Hazy amber pour frothy off white head. Flavors of spicy rye caramel peppery herbal hops dank a little citrus fruit. Touch of alcohol smooth and dry finish.
