Very bitter. Like more bitter than the typical IPA. I like bitter but this was a little too bitter. I did like it.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a slightly hazy amber with a big head that quickly dissipates to a thin wispy white layer of foam that clings to the sides of the glass. Hop dominate aroma with pine, perfume, citrus, and grassy notes. Medium to high hop flavor with sweet malt, citrus, grapefruit, pine, and resinous characteristics. The finish is fairly dry with just a hint of grapefruit that lingers on the tongue. Medium body and carbonation with a smooth mouthfeel. A very good IPA that is clean and refreshing.

pours a beautiful sunset orange with a sticky small eggshell head. The aroma is pithy pine and massive floral hops. beautiful.....taste is hops front back and center. The hops used threw me a little as I was expecting this to taste similar the their Imperial. It doesn’t...this beer is much more bitter. After a couple mouth fulls my palate is opening up to the hop-blast. Fantastic palate! The hops linger for a long time. awesome beer. Green flash rocks!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Copper color body, half inch offwhite seafoam head. Total grapefruit nose. A little lemon to start but quickly overtaken by the bitter hops until all it is is aspirin. Slightly floral but really mostly bitter with notes of pine resin.

Bottle. Pours a copper orange with ample slightly off white head. Aroma is a hop blast with citrus notes. Taste is a resiny grapefruit and hop bitterness. Medium mouthfeel with somewhat surprising smooth finish. A classic for the style.
