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.

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!!

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

Pours clear mahogany with a large beige head. Smells spicy and woody. Taste is bitter, woody, rye spicy. Full-bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Green Flash Road Warrior finishes with a lingering spicy bitterness.

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

The body of the beer was a deep reddish shade of amber. The color was very attractive, but the appearance was muddied a bit by the cloudiness typical of beers with a high proportion of rye grains. The head formation was two fingers thick, creamy, and very stable. The aroma was heavenly as the grapefruit and pine from the hops mingled with the spice from the rye. The taste delivered a citric and earthy hop assault, which was followed by an herbal flavor and berry like sweetness, that slowly gave way to a dry, toasty, grainy finish with a touch of spice. The aftertaste was spicy and dry. The beer felt substantial across the palette, and felt like it possessed a body similar to a barleywine. I love this bold rye showcase.

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!

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.
