COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Editor’s Note: If you had the 8.1% abv version marketed since 2014 as a Double India Pale Ale, this is the wrong beer page. Please rate under Green Flash West Coast IPA (2014 -).

This West Coast-Style India Pale Ale is extravagantly hopped, full flavored, medium bodied and copper colored. A menagerie of hops is combined throughout the brewing process to impart specific characteristics. Hops used include Simcoe for a unique fruitiness and grapefruit zest, Columbus for strong hop pungency, Centennial for pine and citrus notes, and Cascade for floral aroma.

sunevdj (3134) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - APR 16, 2007
Big thanx goes to axilla for this one. Pours a hazy orange with a slightly tanned head. Smells of grapefruit and hops. Quite dry and bitter. Tastes of malts and loads of hops. The beer has a slight, nice pilsner quality. Typical US hops profile... yum. Medium to full bodied.Long piney and grapefruity finish. Very nice.

This was a good IPA. I would try this again but more local offerings (HI.P.A., Nugget Nectar) are cheaper and fresher.

Great stuff here, really great IPA. Delicious aroma and hop flavor to match. Not quite up to the 90 minute standard, but still a can’t-miss IPA.

RiverHorse (457) - New Jersey, USA - APR 14, 2007
What a great IPA. Pours a medium orange color with a nice head and tons of lacing. The smell was big citrus and hops. There is a nice bitter kick, and tastes of grapefruit, hops and spices. Excellent.

SynergyXJ (510) - Blacksburg, Virginia, USA - APR 11, 2007
Draught Good amber pour with a nice sized head and good lacing. Piney citrus hop aroma and flavor. Flavor has lots of grapefruit hop. Dry palate. Pretty good IPA.

psuCE03 (135) - York, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 9, 2007
Great pour with a nice head and lace and a hoppy aroma. Bitter hoppy taste just like an IPA should be.

hotstuff (4058) - Indiana, USA - APR 8, 2007
Bottle. Small ivory fizzy head, fair amount of lacing, floaties, cloudy/hazy, visible carbonation, and an orange hue. Nose was very hoppy, citrus, grapefruit. Flavor was extremely hoppy, grapefruit and citrus. Lingering hoppy aftertaste. Hoppy mouthfeel. Medium body. This was just too hoppy for my palate. This is a true hop heads delight for sure.

jonnabrix (137) - Newberrytown, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2007
Aroma was very hoppy, with plenty of citrus, grapefruit in particular. Taste was also hoppy, dry, bitter, but balanced nicely with solid malt presence. Nice.

GriffinAvenue (396) - Winchester, Massachusetts, USA - APR 1, 2007
Bottle. Medium copper-orange color. 1/2"foam that slowly erodes. Hoppy, tinges of orange, faint floral hints. Lightly bitter in taste. Smooth, even body and tangy aftertaste. Solid, not spectacular.
