Taste of bitter hops, pine, orange and caramel.
Medium body and medium carbonation.
Very hoppy, but with more balance than the name implies.

Always a win for someone who loves IPAs. This has a huge pine element that never disappoints. You will taste this when you wake up tomorrow. caralkaline87 (435) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 7, 2013
Pours amber with virtually no head. Nose is tame and dominated by crisp hops and a touch of fruit. Flavor is bitter hops front to back, with decent malt and slight booze between. Not overwhelmingly good or unique, but certainly a good DIPA. bucs572000 (237) - Minnesota, USA - MAR 7, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Poured from a bomber. Aroma is pine, grapefruit, pineapples, and tropical fruit. Flavors are resinous pine, grapefruit, pineapple, orange peel, and citrus. Very big hoppy beer, very dry, actually does have some nice smooth characters also, but the hops stay stuck to your pallet. It’s quite bitter but I guess if your going to buy this the name alone would warn you that this beer isn’t for a non hop head. Great job green flash! decaturstevo (6240) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAR 7, 2013
Orange gold pour with creamy off white head and lace. Aroma of large resiny hops. Flavor is sweet malt, biscuits, and resiny hop bitter. A very complex ipa with good balance. Sweet start and mellow sweet finish with that nice hop bitter. Smooth full body with good carbonation. Bottle from Grassroots Natural market in Jacksonville. If it is better in Cali I’m ready to go.

UPDATED: MAR 30, 2013 tons of pine, some onion, sweet caramel with intense bitterness above, fades into smooth bread. lots of bitterness, full bodied radio_nowhere (1472) - Maryland, USA - MAR 6, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 28, 2014 12oz bottle with a month on it into snifter glass. Orangy-amber color with half-finger of creamy off-white head. Aroma of intense pine and citrus hops with caramel malt in the background. Taste starts out nice enough with the caramel malt sweetness, then it’s a hop punch. Some fruitiness and spiciness added to the pine/citrus hops. Full body, rich, little oily, thick and bitter as hell. This did not let me down, unbalanced with crazy hoppiness. Awesome. acearl (510) - The Ham, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 5, 2013
UPDATED: APR 29, 2013 Dark orange clear hue with creamy white head, not much lacing, initially smells of pine needles then to citrus as warmed, medium body, taste very grapefruit, some pine and caramel, has an abrupt bitter dry finish but not overly crips, good not great DIPA, like Green Flash regulars IPA better bigirishphan (106) - Peoria Heights, Illinois, USA - MAR 4, 2013
Well played Green Flash! Huge hop nose. On tap at Kellehers. Golden, clear, with a tiny creamy head. This brew is a hop lovers dream. Not quite sure what hops were used but they are warm and robust. Not as clean and crisp as I expected. Awesome beer!

Sampler at Armanetti’s. Murky amber color. Big hop nose. Guess I did not pick up that the IBU’s were higher than the tongue can actually perceive, being as it had plenty of more aromatic hops in it. The main impression was of passionfruit, but lots of resin stickiness in the mouthfeel. Lays very nicely on my tongue.
