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. Its all about the hops!" -- Brewmaster Chuck Silva

Grovlam (4208) - 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.

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.

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 Ill take green flashs single IPA over this.

steview (1037) - Petaluma, California, USA - JAN 5, 2008
it is just a big ol double IPA with nothing else; thin for what it is, but otherwise; good--typical flavor and aroma, bigger and more fresh aroma, however.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 4, 2008
Poured a slightly hazy amber orange color body with a big, sticky, off-white head. The aroma is sweet pine and oranges with some carmel. Flavor has the same hop profile as the regular IPA with a much bigger malt backbone. Seemed a little off balance in the wrong direction, a little too malty.

00cobraR (1103) - Greensboro, North Carolina, USA - JAN 2, 2008
This is more of on the lines of what im looking for in an IIPA. Copper color with a big smack of hops and pine. Flavor was the same with a grassy citrus finish to it. the aftertaste hung around as well. Outstanding brew.

ross (2146) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - JAN 1, 2008
Bottle from Daniel, thanks. One I have wanted to try for a long time, and the other night I finally got to try it. Pours out an orange / yellow color with a white head on it. Sweet hoppy smell full of pine and grassy and plenty of citrus. The taste is mostly hops, balanced very well, fresh tasting. Not overly bitter, but a very nice double ipa which one could easily session. This beer would probably not be very good with age, so thank god this one was fresh. No alcohol detected, just a nice west coast IPA. Thanks.
