Pours murky golden with a thin tan head with good legs. Nose is caramel, floral hops, a little citrus hops. Flavor is malt forward with a very bitter finish and a bitter aftertaste. There is a little metallic flavor in there for me. Mouthfeel is creamy and a little oily.

Tangerine/orange citrus, leafy hop aroma. Really light sweet malt. Herbal/leafy, citrus, pepper hop flavor. Some resinous flavor and mouthfeel. Light malt flavor -- just enough...

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draft in NC. Pours amber with a white head. Grapefruit, pine, more malty than it was before. This used to be one of my favorite IPAs. I'm not loving this new recipe.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
9/12/14 on tap in shaker pint at Fox Sports Grill, San Diego, CA. Aroma is HOPS and sweet citrus. Golden copper in color. Very little head. As expected with an IPA, it is a hop bomb. For a hop lover this beer is bliss. For a malt lover, this is just another hoppy example where the flavor of hops overpower the skill of the brewer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at Moriartys. Tulip. Slightly hazy orange amber pour with a white foamy top that left rows of sugary lace. Strong floral resins. Lavender pinecones. Violet varnish. Heather. Wildflowers. Numbing dark amber fruit. Pineapple cores. Mango skins. Unripe oranges. Red plums. Kumquats. Some nice earthiness as well. Autumn leaves. Truffles. Portobello mushrooms. Pleasantly unashamed to have strong, sharp hops front and center.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Green Flash West Coast IPA has a medium, off-white head, a mostly clear, orange appearance, some bubble streams, and a bit of lacing left behind. The aroma is of overriding hop resin. This is the predominant smell, but one might detect some underlying sweet, white bread. Taste is of hop oil, a bit of bitter fruit, pine, and a touch of sweet malt. Mouthfeel is medium and not too slick, and Green Flash West Coast IPA finishes semi-dry and not boozy (except you feel it, rather than taste it). RJT

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Beer temple. 25cl sample. The aroma is somewhat weak, has citrus, bit grain, light vegetable. Bit hazy, golden coloured beer wit a lasting, white head. The taste is moderate bitter, has citric hoppiness, light honey maltiness. Almost clean taste, bitter dry finish. Taste is pretty good, but aroma lacks hops.
