COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"San Diego-style IPA, as it has come to be known by many, is a super-hoppy, high gravity, yet highly quaffable ale. Green Flash Imperial IPA is created in this new tradition, with intense hop flavors and aromas from a unique blend of Summit and Nugget hops. It’s all about the hops!" -- Brewmaster Chuck Silva

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2008 Imperial IPA carries a connotation of it’s own. Even still, this one hit my tongue with a ton of bitter grapefruits with no aftertaste. Normally, a beer with bitter hops lacks control, but this one was impressive.

thewolf (12598) - Kolding, DENMARK - JAN 19, 2008
Bottle. [thanks to Øster]
Pours a lightly hazy golden-yellow with a great, yellowish creamy small head. Good lacing. Aroma is wonderfully fruity, strawberries, light doughy and pilsner malt as well as a good dose of hops (naturally). Lively mouthfeel, but still rather creamy. Begins of rather mild with a good fruity hoppiness. Then some light caramel and pilsner maltiness. The finish is extremely bitter, lots of powerful hops. Wonderful for a hophead, a bit sharp, but I really like it.

Bottle. Pale deep golden. Fruity piney bit sweet aroma. Dry fruity pine aroma with some sweetness. Long lasting dry fruity flavour with caramel, pine and some citrus and a good dry fruity hoppiness in the finish. Thanks to the thewolf.

yespr (45464) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JAN 19, 2008
75 cL bottle, thanks to thewolf. Pours hazy orange with a dense white head. Mild pine and grapefruity aroma. Flavour starts with a sweet caramel with a nice fruity note before a solid bitterness is building up along nice sweet notes towards the finish. Nice.

KimJohansen (10492) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - JAN 17, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2008 [Courtesy of thewolf, session @ yespr] Hazy golden with medium short lasting head. Aroma is hoppy with grapefruit notes. Flavor is sweet with grapefruits, citrus, caramel and a nice hoppy kick to the end. Finishes bitter. Lovely!

Grovlam (4247) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 17, 2008
Bottle. [Courtesy of thewolf, another great session @ yespr] Average thick creamy like off-white head that mostly lasted. Good display of lacework. Light cloudy amber colour. Aroma of lovely sweet pineapple, grapefruit, citrus and hint of elderflower in the sniff. Over the palate comes apricot, hint of liquorish, caramel, fruit that being peach like. Full bodied with a very dry texture and an average carbonation. Well balanced bitter and sweet flavour. Dry and bitter light lingering finish.

grandet (501) - Scranton, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 9, 2008

xnoxhatex (1305) - Grand Rapids/Chicago, Michigan, USA - JAN 8, 2008
Bottle from encinitas, CA. Hazy orange/amber with large, long lasting white head. Citrus and grainy hop aroma with slight lemon, not all that strong, but nice. Nice fresh hop flavor of pine and grapefruit with large bitterness, slight malt tones of caramel, not very balanced but a very nice hop bomb. Hotly carbonated that fades to nice creamy full body. A nice brew with wonderful hops, only wish it were more balanced but that is personal preference.

3.5
Miver (609) - Silver Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 7, 2008
Bomber. Poured cloudy amber with a fine white head. Aroma of fresh cut grass, and tons of floral hops. Taste was hops, oranges, lemon and pine. Hints of Lysol present and certainly a little harsh. I like a good IIPA but in this case I’ll take green flash’s single IPA over this.
