4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at home. Hazy orange colour. Large white head. Lovely hoppy and bitter, yet fruity and sitrusy aroma. Grapefruit, peach, sitrus. Piney hops and some malt sweetness.
Very hoppy and bitter, but balanced with sweet caramell maltflavour like a proper IIPA. No bottling date, but this was likely bottled 8 - 12 months ago. Still good though. Would love to taste this one fresh. Will have to travel across the atlantic for that.
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2017 Peppery pine, some dank in the aroma. Quite bitter, resin, bread. Sort of metallic aftertaste. Feels a little weak, probably from sitting in the bottle. Not bad but not something i will go back to either. Too many other excellent IPAs to choose from. limbonicartbeer (127) - - OCT 18, 2017
Cerveza color naranja translúcida. Corona de espuma de baja retención de burbujas compactas. Aroma cítrico, pino al paladar consistencia semi ligera que al inicio da un sabor dulce y cítrico a la vez como mango o piña, posteriormente predomina el sabor a pino y en el retrogusto perdura un amargor moderado por algunos segundos. Excelente cerveza.

UPDATED: SEP 24, 2017 Thick off white head on top of a golden hazy body. It smells of pine and citrus hops. To be honest, I was expecting a dark IPA, like imperial stout. While it has good flavors they are obliterated by that IPA aftertaste. While not a bad beer, it’s more for IPA veterans than the uninitiated. nickel (1265) - UKRAINE - AUG 18, 2017
Aroma: intensively hoppy with floral and pine hops.
Taste: floral hops, notes of citrus just to balance it’s pine flavor. Long lasting grass+pine aftertaste. Drinkable regardless high IBU and ABV.
One of my favorite imperial IPA, and probably most drinkable among DIPAs AtronSeige (1827) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - AUG 16, 2017

This beer rocks. It is easy to drink, great piney almost dank aroma, the mouth feel is pleasing and the amber color is clear with mild carbonation. It is a go to beer. Drink and enjoy! Nice work Green Flash!

A: Light clear Orange with a small white head.
N: Citrus, dank notes.

O: Great, complex IPA. Deceptively drinkable. AntonyWilson (519) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - MAY 20, 2017
660ml bottle: Pours a hazy golden with white head. Peppery notes with spicy hop aroma. High bitterness, medium bodied, medium carbonation. Beer finishes dry. Some good caramel flavours come through together with herby notes. Overall a refreshing beer. Muggus69 (2831) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - MAY 19, 2017
650mL bottle from Beer Love online. BB 09MAY17 - whoops
Hazy orange gold beer, decent size dense white head.
Aroma not as intense as expected (can forgive that with age) - citrus rind, pine sap, toasty malt, not as malty as the standard IPA seemingly.
Full body, resiny, big but that booze is well tempered.
Enjoyable flavours of toasty biscuity malt, sweet throughout really with hops making the balance providing lingering lime & grapefruit, green pine needle, unripe peach, and a healthy hit of bitterness.
Yeah, it’s a bit long in the tooth but retains plenty of character.
