bottled, amber orange color , white foam, sweet fruity orange aroma, thicker sweet flavor of citrus , bitterness more subdued than the new IPA’s along with heavier body made this a little better and more likely to try again, finish isn’t as harsh

De Green Flash “Road Warrior” esta Imperial Rye India Pale Ale, IPA con adjuntos de centeno de manufactura estadounidense. Una cerveza lupulada bastante atenuada, con una corona de espuma de una excelente retención gracias al mismo centeno, perlas medianas a medianas-amplias, de tono cobrizo a marrón claro, con algo de turbiedad por sus componentes. En olfato el olor imperante es el lúpulo cítrico y dry hopping a zacate, notas a clavo, algo de piña y melón, excelente olor equilibrado y muy a tono con el sabor de esta cerveza. En paladar los 9.0% de ABV son imperceptibles debido a que el soporte de malta desde el color es notable brindando un equilibrio en sabores, de principio sobresale el dulzor de la malta que es relevado por la sequedad de los lúpulos usados tanto en cocción como en el dry, esta sequedad se acentúa con los toques especiados del adjunto. Una cerveza sobresaliente de estilo difícil equilibrada hacia el amargor pero acompañada en conjunto con todos los demás sabores que la hacen bastante bebible y un aroma demasiado sugerente.

S_Side_Smitty (651) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - DEC 19, 2015
Pours reddish-brown and cloudy with a medium tan head. Aroma is a beautiful blend of leathery malts and pungent pine. The malts are the stars of this one with choco-malto-old-leathery goodness. Then come the hops in all of their bitter glory. They tang up the former flavors with their heavy pine in a very black IPA kinda way and their intrusion lingers to eternity....

12oz bottle on 15-Dec-2015, purchased at De Bierkoning, Amsterdam. Hazy dark amber colour. Medium body and soft carbonation. Aroma of tropical fruit, pine and alcohol. Bitter flavour upfront. Rye and alcohol burn thereafter. Grapefruit, sweet malt, resin and heavily hopped. Bittersweet spicy finish.

Hopmaestro (970) - Örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 8, 2015
Bottle at Örebro Ölcafe: Aroma is deep caramel and malt with a fair share of pine and resin. Taste is chewy and mid-spicey rye, grapefruit peels and a deep sweet fruity sensation. Good solid bitterness in the end with some alcohol warmth.

rajendra82 (1011) - Alpharetta, Georgia, USA - DEC 6, 2015
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.

eaglefan538 (2982) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - NOV 29, 2015
On draft at Ulysses. Pour was orangey red, decent head. Aroma of caramel and grapefruits. Flavor followed, a bit heavy on the caramel malts, overwhelmed the rye spiciness and even the hop bitterness to some extent. Some pine and resinous elements in the flavor that I didn’t pick up in the aroma. Mouthfeel on par for the style, carbonation a tad light. Just needed to be more lively, malts killed what had great potential.

puboflyons (2783) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 21, 2015
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Expiration date of 26 Nov 15. Attractive amber pour with a long lasting off-white head. Good clarity Aroma brings out a roasted malt character with floral and pine hops to enhance it. Body is medium. An odd sort of astringent character in the flavor along with the caramel malt sweetness and lingering hop bitterness at the end. e taste feels a tad astringent but I get a decent malt character and a forward floral hop character that lingers briefly. Tastes like mulch at the end.
