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!

This works really well excellent beer. Create hoppy aroma with some nice malt to balance. Flavor's like aroma. Killer body. Super drinkable. Just an outstanding brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is what a rye IPA should taste like, especially one that is turbo charged double IPA like this. The Rye adds the perfect sharp bite to complement the hops. Only area it didn’t rate top notch was the aroma, a little too hot (alcohol), could have used a hint more hops in the nose. But SUCH a minor comment!!

Pours a dark and clear coppery-brown, bordering on mahogany with a very thick and fairly persistent buff head. Strong, very hoppy, resiny aroma has a subtle citrus underpinning and a hint of hay, and will just about follow you around the room. Flavor is - HOO HA! Fiercely hoppy, yet scarcely bitter, it sets evergreen, resin and woody notes roaring across your palate like 18-wheelers. Texture is thick, firm, and quite fizzy, leaving a hoppy and citrus finish. Hit the road - but BEFORE you have this.

Another awesome green flash. I am not a fan of rye in my IPA but this is really good. The spicy rye and medium crystal malts come out wonderfully in the tropical citrus pine hop aroma. The flavor follows the aroma with some toffe and fruit in the heavy malt backbone. I also think beers that don’t back up their citra and mosaic type hops with a healthy dose of spruce hops and a the beer can be too juicy. The mosaics work awesome in this beer. This would be a better fall or winter release, but nothing really tops green bullet and palate wrecker imho

Green flash continues to make exquisite beers. This particular one has a great hoppy aroma and taste. The pour is a fantastic amber color with a nice light brown head.

12 oz. bottle from Total Wine, Chesapeake, VA. Brownish-orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of grapefruit rind and pine needles mostly with sweet rye in the background. Taste is incredible with noticeable spicy rye malts blended with bitter citrus and piney hops. This is on the edge of tasting almost like a barleywine and it is awesome. Well done!

ElCapitan22 (139) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 12, 2014
Pours a perfect dark copper with nice lacing. Smells of malt and rye and tastes the same, but on steroids. Great aftertaste and overall an excellent rye beer.

Great beer. Deep amber pour with light off white head. Aroma is pine and citrus with some cracked pepper bite. Taste is similar.

Bomber poured a clear reddish amber with a small lasting amber head. Aromas of rye, caramel, earthiness, dank bud, pink grapefruit, tangerine and tropical fruit. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of rye, caramel, dank bud, earthiness, grapefruit and light tropical fruit with a smooth dry bitter lingering fruity rye finish.
