Bottle. Pours hazy bright orange with nice offwhite head. The aroma is intense pineapple, grapefruit, and a little bit of honey. The flavor is full of piney bitterness with a few citrus notes in there, too. The malts are lightly toasted and complement the hops very gracefully. this is a great beer.

interesting in that it is a bit different. like the creamy slightly oily liquid has been built up in stages. nice golden slightly off white head on this golden/reddish brew. nice aroma of straw and caramel with grapefruit hops.touch of floral hop in with the aromatic pronouncements. good lingering finish. mild pine in my book. nicely put togeather.

12 oz bottle. Pours orange with a small head and some floaties. Huge citrus aroma and flavor. Perfect balance of hops and malt. Long bitter finish with a slight alcohol warmth. I can’t believe I have not tried this sooner, one of my favorite IPA’s. A must try!

What we have here is a first-rate IPA, and I dare these poseurs around here to taste this blind against Stone’s IPA and know which one is better. What we’ve got is pungent aroma of grassy hops; big rich full-frontal delivery of very citrus-acidic hop flavor followed by full-bodied finish. I just don’t know how an IPA could be done better. Okay, so this one didn’t quite have the head that Stone’s IPA does. I said to taste them blind, not look at them.

a great overall IPA. 12oz bottle from Bev Mo La Mesa. Big aroma of citrus, grass, pine and a nice malt character. One of the best readly available IPA’s out there.

I liked this IPA. I had not heard of green flash before trying this beer, but I tired this and the brown in the same evening and was quite impresses. This IPA didn’t really stand out by my standards, but was just a good well balanced IPA

12oz bottle. My current benchmark for American IPAs. Not exactly balanced like Bell’s Two Hearted but when you got a left-coast hop-jones, nothing else will satisfy. Unfortunately rather difficult to find here in Maryland... Now if I could just figure out how to refit my plug-in glade air fresheners to run on this stuff my house would always smell like a hops garden!
