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!

gururyan (615) - Stillwater, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 8, 2014
Pours a deep ruby, quickly dissipating head, subtle aroma. Shocked this is 9%, very smooth rye IIPA. Awful packaging/design, but the contents are top notch. Glad I have several more. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ickmund (13) - SPAIN - OCT 18, 2014
12oz bottle. Hazy, dark amber. Head is white towards latte, kinda small, but good retention. Nose is caramel, resin, spice. Nice balance on the palate. Getting some sweetness and spices, then it fades into a grapefruity bitterness.

yngwie (13693) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 18, 2014
Bottle. A hazy, amber colored beer topped by a small, dense, light beige colored head. The aroma has some caramel and spicy notes, with a good dash of piney and resiny hops. Grapefruit peel. Its full bodied and lightly warming on the palate, with a pleasant carbonation level. Resins, grapefruity, spicy maltyness and some caramel in the flavor, lasting for a good while, with a fine bitterness. Quite nice this one, but Im sure itd be better when fresh. 141018

AdiBeer (1354) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2014
Aroma: heavy flowers, some ripe fruits, green tea. Appearance: clear, dark amber, hardly any head. Taste: medium sweet. Palate: bitters intensify heavily, floral hops, straw, heavy ripe fruits. Overall: OK IIPA, yet struggles to stand out. Pint at Green Flash Brewing Company, San Diego.

Smalle (142) - Leuven, BELGIUM - OCT 16, 2014
The first smell is not very fresh. Aged bottle? Unable to check, because there is no date on the bottle or the cap. Aroma: caramel, dried figs and prunes, pine, hops. Taste: sweet, dried fruits and tart, piney. Agressively sharp. Very bitter.

legion242 (2223) - Richardson, Texas, USA - OCT 14, 2014
Poured a deep garnet with a big fluffy head with very nice lacing. Soft nose and in the mouth it is very well balanced. Could have used just a tad more spice from the rye.

Aroma pine, grapefruit and mint. The flavor is grapefruit, rye, earthiness, tropical fruit and a rather dry/bitter finish.
