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

Draft at GF Mira Mesa. Pours almost clear amber with a fizzy off white head. Tastes like hop resin, lemon, cracker malt, and spicy and grapefruit hops. Let that/medium body and carbonation. Smells like hop resin, lemon, cracker malt, and spicy and grapefruit hops.

Maris (1499) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JAN 30, 2017
From a 650ml bottle on 30/1/2017. Pours an opaque medium golden with a small head head. The nose is very cirussy, with lots of grapefruit in particular. Flavour wise, it’s sweet and fruity up front - peach, apricot and mandarin, with a touch of honey and bready malt in the background. The hops are big, grapefruity and peppery. The palate is a touch syrupy and the carbonation is soft. A big, bold, in your face, and very enjoyable DIPA.

Andrew196 (1859) - Katy, Texas, USA - JAN 24, 2017
Pours a lovely peach with a wispy ivory head, spotty lace. Aroma is citrus, peach, notes of mint and ginger. Spicy pop on the tongue, bready, citrusy malts, more ginger, grapefruit, pepper. A tad boozy for 9% but outstanding flavors all around.

MelvinKalksma (1516) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 9, 2016

Aroma:
Medium aroma of malts, caramel, honey, fruit, hops, citrus and grapefruit.

Appearance:
Turbid golden/amber beer with a medium white/off-white head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, honey and fruit; ends slightly/medium bitter and dry with hops, citrus and grapefruit.

Overall:
This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. Great amount of hops, but misses some distinct fruit flavours. Great appearance with a steady head, but the aroma could have been stronger thanks to this.

tightslice (1278) - Redwood City, California, USA - NOV 13, 2016
Bottle from Safeway in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is tropical fruits, grapefruit, maybe some honey. Taste is tropical marmalade, grapefruit peels. Up front the taste is really great but the combination of bitter peels and booze started to wear on me at the end.

3.5
PhillyCraft (7113) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 11, 2016
Backlog. Draft. Golden brown color with medium to larger head. Smell and flavor are heavy and resinous pine, grapefruit, overripe pineapple, toast, and grain. Lots of bitterness from the 100 IBU’s. A little aggressive and boozy but has a lot of hop flavor. Used to like this one but would never order it these days with all the lower alcohol and cleaner juices.

androman (2291) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 5, 2016
1pt 6fl oz bottle at home from FirmaBier, 6 weeks after expire date. Nose is citrus, grass, weed. Body is clear pale, head is small, offwhite, frothy, average lasting, good lacing. Aroma is malty, grapefruit, honey, tropical fruits, leather. Medium sweet, light bitter, light citric sour. Finish is long lasting hoppy medium bitter, hint of salt. Medium body, dry texture, average carbonation. Quite easy, strong flavor, good balance but weird taste, should drink a fresh one next time, not bad though.

4.2
Lambister (520) - FINLAND - SEP 17, 2016
Large bottle @ Flinders Lane. Bisquit and fresh grass on the nose. Fresh hoppy mouth with loads of flavor. Bit soapy at the end but still everything is really well put.

3.8
jhamp9 (1833) - Corinth, Texas, USA - AUG 25, 2016
Lightly hazy yellow orange pour with a fluffy white head and great lacing. Aroma is earthy, herbal, pine, mango, and toffee. Taste starts earthy then goes into citrus and tropical fruit with a piney finish. Some caramel sweetness to balance it out. Lingering piney aftertaste. Medium body.
