West Coast IPA was dry.... bone dry.
I tried to drink the whole 6 pack in one night - but I could only manage 2 bottles before the bitterness dissolved my brain: hence the loss of drinking reflex. The pine aroma was so strong - that I woke up in a cold sweat thinking I was lost in the forest. I soon realised that it was actually the empty bottle on my bedside table. I had to dial 911 after I drank this beer. It took several assurances from the lady on the other end that my tongue would grow back.

As old-guard IPAs went, this was pretty great, although the bitterness always bothered me. Still, a classic.

coppery orange color with off-white foam that although not abundant not disappear in the glass leaving snaps into the vessel walls. The aroma is intense, spicy citrus, with cuts of fresh pine, grapefruit, flowers and final malt nuances, caramel and some alcohol. The palate begins with a torrent of bitter citrus slowly giving way to a mixture of sweetish nuances of caramel and bitter as pine resin malt, grapefruit with a slight alcoholic sensation. But dry finish tour. medium body and moderate carbonation.

Oranssinruskea, sameahko olut. Valkoinen, nopeasti häviävä mutta kuitenkin pitsiä jättävä vaahto. Tuoksu hyvin vahva; havuinen ja hedelmäinen. Maku yllättävän katkera jättäen pitkään kestävän katkeran jälkimaun. Greippisyys nousee esiin. Ei ehkä ihan omaan makuun sopivin.

Pours a deep dark orangish amber color. Aromas of big hop action, sweet malts, and more hops. Flavor has some bready maltsy tastes with nice grapefruit and floral hop taste.

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.

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.
