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!

Hazy deep amber beer, tidy pale cream colour head. Palate is softish and a little dry. Fine carbonation. Light sweetish caramel malt and malt cream. Very skunky hops, bitter too. Light pine and ripe orange. Mild hop spice. Smooth finish with a good bitter linger. Skunky!

Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Dark amber color, clean, with compact head. The aroma has some alcohol and fusels. Overall it’s a very caramelly brew, a bit chewy, although not thick or sweet; the hopping is quite resiny and a bit fruity too, very bitter; some alcohol perception.
Good beer.

yngwie (13782) - 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. It’s 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 I’m sure it’d be better when fresh. 141018

bhensonb (11260) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 2, 2014
Tap at University of Beer in Davis, CA. Pours beautiful dark copper with a beige head. Aroma is malty with grass/citrus? Med body or better. Flavor is malty, a little rye spice, some citrus and then tropical fruit aspects? For me it’s a bit complex. Lots of flavor. Drinking really nice.

brokensail (11089) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 13, 2014
Bottle @ home. Deep amber pour with a light haze and khaki head. Sweet caramel malts, some pineapple, and plenty of grapefruit. Slight orange and some pine. Flavor has sort of a chalky bitterness to go along with the pine. Lots of sweet caramel and some brown sugar. Good citric bite on the back end. Some hints of melon. Nice enough, though a bit sweet.
