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

Pour is orange in appearance with a fluffy off-white head and great lacing. Smell is grapefruit, orange, citrus, light caramel, and earthy hops. Taste is sweet grapefruit upfront, light to medium earthy hops through the middle with some caramel notes, ending with a big bitter finish. I’m also picking up some alcoholic notes in their as well.

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.

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

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! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A: Light clear Orange with a small white head. N: Citrus, dank notes. T: Finishes dry and not very malty for a high-gravity IPA, making it very crisp and refreshing. Leafy green bitterness. Orange juice, earthy notes, mint. Properly bitter. Grapefruit. P: Thin O: Great, complex IPA. Deceptively drinkable.

Muggus69 (2659) - 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.

Bomber, Kroger, Rio Hill. Golden with a small white head. Aroma of pine, oregano, citrus. Flavor is heavily tropical fruit up front. Cantaloupe, pine, grapefruit. Juicy up front... lingering cantaloupe flavor closes it out along with pine.
