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!

12oz bottle. Pours clear dark honey color with burnt orange hues. Aroma of rye, tangerine, pine, caramel. Flavor is spicy, rye, pine, molasses, citrus. This is a really awesome beer with spicy, bitter, and sweetness all in one.

On tap at Yard House Tucson. Deep amber to chestnut with decent white head. Huge hop aroma of pine and veg. Flavor explodes with huge hops and a nice carmel spicy rye note. Finishes with hops and rye! Excellent!

Bottle. Pours dark amber with a large dissipating head. Aroma of American hops. Flavor is bitter and slightly sweet. Finish is an array of American hop aromas. Very dry. Great rye IPA.

Finhead (1185) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - SEP 16, 2014
Hazy, brown pour with an off-white head. The aroma is earthy along with some faint grass. It has a medium body with slightly oily texture and lively carbonation. The taste is bittersweet with a mildly dry finish.

jlulensk (33) - san jose, California, USA - SEP 15, 2014
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!!

Garrold (1332) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2014
Bottle. Hop Hideout. Clear, burnished copper. Thin, off white, lasting head. Huge orange, piny, dirty, grapefruit aroma. Taste is fairly bitter, with some spicy dryness. Chewy palate. A bit greasy. A bit slick. Boozy and heady. Finishes long bitter. Spicy end. Very full on. Very tasty. Loppy beer, this.

brokensail (10935) - 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.

Goodgrief (1790) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - SEP 13, 2014
On tap at Cantwells. Dark amber pour, frothy head. Hops on the nose and flavor profile are spicy, earthy and slightly citric. Caramel malt base with a notable grainy rye presence adds a good bit of sweetness to compensate for a moderate hoppiness. Not cloying, but sweet. Overall, it’s just downright tasty. The flavors blend exceedingly well. You can feel every bit of the 9+% abv. I enjoyed this one immensely.

CelticBrew (786) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - SEP 12, 2014
Pours from 12 oz bottle a dark and clear coppery-brown, bordering on mahogany with a very thick and fairly persistent cragley head. Aroma is strong with spicy hop aromatics, some caramel and tropical fruits. Flavour is of grapefruit, caramel and dark fruit leading to an initially sweet sticky finish but then on to a bitter chocolate ending. Rye is obviously present. A strong double from GF, happiness awaits.
