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 (646) - 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

Nose is sweet bread, dried apricot, peach rings. Flavor is same plus a pretty heavy rye kick, some grass, overripe mango.

PartyFowle (584) - - JUN 16, 2015
Bottle. Deep copper hue, good clarity. A finger of frothy tan head deposits nice lacing. The nose: caramel, burnt sugar, rye bread, crust. Juicy hop character -- weed, guava, orange, pineapple. Rye adds an intriguing background note thatís almost musty. Big hops up front in the flavor. Resinous, with grapefruit, guava, pineapple, mango and grass. Finish has a toasted malt character thatís metallic and peppery. Fluffy medium body; moderate CO2; high bitterness. Tastes exactly like what youíd expect from reading the description.

Poobah (322) - New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - JUN 15, 2015
Amber with a one finger head, some lacing, and a citrus, mild grapefruit nose. Smooth and malty intro with a medium body and a sweet, creamy, hoppy, grapefruit finish

kathouse (1234) - Nevada, USA - JUN 11, 2015
Dark for an IPA but this beer has it all! Deep west coast hop aroma. Bitterness and rye spice that really makes this beer shine. Iíll drink lots more of this.

after4ever (6632) - Brier, Washington, USA - JUN 9, 2015
Draft at sb. Pours a murky very dark amber with rubied edges. Loose creamy tan head. Decent lace. Big malty sweet nose, with heavy rye spice, vaguely reminds me of the nutty smell from a payday candy bar. Creamy thickish body. Rye spice, darkly toasted caramel, and candied toasted peanuts in the background on the mid palate. Long sweetish finish.

mmmbeer (1309) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 29, 2015
12 oz. bottle served in a shaker- poured a transparent copper color with brown tint, 3mm white head that laced extremely well upon the vessel. Aroma of deep woods pine (different from regular pine- trust me), rye, and grapefruit. Hits the mouth with a wide body, malt was just soaked in caramel but it comes out in the end because hops kick in the door in the middle, finish is actually somewhat drying, yet sharply acidic from said hop barrage. Very nice brew.

Tonkun (1113) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 20, 2015
Tap. Copper pour with a big white head. Rye, citrus, grapefruit. Medium to full body. Sweet bitter finish. Almost candy like

DuffMan (7823) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 19, 2015
Bottle, shared at the lake with Parksy and others on May long weekend. Pours a surprisingly dark burnt orange, with a frothy lasting white head. Big ruby grapefruit hop character, some pine, sweet malts, very bitter finish. Iíd be lying yo say that I can pick up any rye character, but thatís not a criticism. A really great imperial red ale.

Palidor19 (3064) - Brandon, Florida, USA - MAY 17, 2015
Green flash knows their IPA, and this one is no exception, pours thick with and has an elaborate cream head. Aroma is hard floral bitter, touch of caramel. Slightly husky but not overly negative. Hop bitter is strong but evens out nicely. High abv but it hides, drink carefully ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

brenn79 (1705) - Idaho, USA - MAY 15, 2015
22 oz bottle- Pours dark orange to brown with a large off white head and nice lace. Aroma is bready rye malts, sweet malt, citrusy hops, pepper spice. The taste is strong in the rye, hops as well, decent amount of bitterness, citrusy, malt well balanced. Iíve always enjoyed rye IPAís and this one is no exception, nice beer.
