4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber. Pours a deep orange just this side of brown. A fine thick off-white head. A surprisingly bright high-citrus aroma with hops under. A medium-full body carries a well balanced bitter note into caramel with slight saltiness. This is a very likeable IPA that may likely appeal to the first-time IPA drinker, but has the character and balance to appeal to a more seasoned taste too. I will return here.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass. Originally reviewed 6/5/2011.
Very hazy golden body that looks darker because of a slight murkiness. Nice two finger head and beautiful stick-looking lacing.
Smells like a hop monster. Piney and grassy hops. Not even a hint of malt. Just a hint of citrus hops.
Taste is exactly the same as the smell. Strong hop flavors of pine and grass. A brief sweetness of malt and then it gives way to a lingering bitterness. It love the hoppiness, but it’s pretty unbalanced.
Well carbonated and medium bodied, but it’s so high in carbonation it’s tough to tell. Such a low amount of malt that it’s super easy to drink. I could put a bottle away in minutes.
A hop bomb.

Botella 33 cl tomada en el momento en el Lupulo. 26..02..2016 Color ámbar miel turbio con bastantes posos en suspensión. Escasa espuma Blanca. Temendo sabor inicial a maltas algo tostadas pastosas seguido de un amargo lupulado seco ligeramente resinoso, algo viejo pero bastante intenso y duradero por un buen rato. Bastante buena.

Pours a beautiful golden orange. Clear but not too frothy. Surprisingly mild aroma. Extra bitter taste that lingers on the palette.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Cloudy appearance. Copper color. Two-finger head that holds for quite along time. Spotty lacing. Aroma consist of citrusy hops, grapefruit, and somewhat of a malty backbone. Sticky texture. Medium bodied. Seems to have a more caramelly, vanilla, malty feel to it. Taste like a kicked up peanut butter. It does have a bite in the finish. I love how this beer is all over the map. Great job Green Flash. Thanks for being a west coast brewery.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Old bottle. Hazy amber color with medium beige head. Aroma has grapefruit, peach, apricot, some citrus fruits and resin, with some malty backbone; but is not intense due to the old age. Taste follows the aroma, tropical fruits, sweet citrus fruits and resin, with a kicking bitter aftertaste.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A true American IPA with lots of nice foam. You simply can not bestow it up without lots of yeast residues end up in the glass. It has an unexpected odor of fruit. Both melon, orange, lemon and apricot increases in the nose. The taste is also short-lived fruity, but also short of it is saturated with lots of hops as downright bombarding your mouth. The finish is long and very dry. I know that American IPAs tend to be aggressive, but here I think probably that it has gone too far. It is far too hoppy for me.

Cobriza - caramelo en el color, muy buen aspecto, con sólida espuma de buena retención. Aroma terroso, resinoso, y pino, con toques frutales. Sabor muy lupulado que pega fuerte al inicio, con explosión brutal (pino, naranjas, albaricoque, uvas). Pero base sólida malteada, muy rica que le da cierto (solo cierto) equilibrio. Final resinoso muy amargo y seco. Excelente.
