COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Editors Note: If you had the 8.1% abv version marketed since 2014 as a Double India Pale Ale, this is the wrong beer page. Please rate under Green Flash West Coast IPA (2014 -).

This West Coast-Style India Pale Ale is extravagantly hopped, full flavored, medium bodied and copper colored. A menagerie of hops is combined throughout the brewing process to impart specific characteristics. Hops used include Simcoe for a unique fruitiness and grapefruit zest, Columbus for strong hop pungency, Centennial for pine and citrus notes, and Cascade for floral aroma.

From a 22 oz bottle this poured rich ruby red color with a big thick off-white head with pink tinges. Beautiful. Nose of caramel malts and citrus and piney hops in great balance. Good rich yet clean mouthfeel. Flavor is bitter with hints of citrus. Long bitter finish. A simply super IPA.

12 oz bottle courtesy Durhambeer. Wow, nice looking beer, pours a deep copper color with a thick off white head. Beautiful grapefruit pine aroma. Bitter, grapefruit like taste with a nice malt balance. Very nice ipa that is not as chewy as a two hearted and slightly more bitterness in the palate after, yet still holds up very well.

Bottle from Kegs & Barrels in Plano, TX. Pours a slight hazy orange/gold with nice off-white head. Aroma has grapefruit hoppiness. Flavor of hoppy grapefruit with nice tangy bitter. Medium body with high carbonation......Very refreshing for the summer.

timfoolery (1126) - California, USA - JUL 11, 2008
Bottle from Coop in Davis, CA. This brew was similar to GF’s DIPA in that grapefruit was ever-present and it finished crisply. For a 6-pack of IPA, it’s either Stone or GF in Cali.

DTM (798) - Winters, California, USA - JUL 11, 2008
Bottle shared with Timfoolery. Poured an amber color with an amber hue. Smelled of floral hops. Tasted of citurs and had a good amount of malts to balance the hops. Good beer.

bottle. pours orange amber with lacy white head. piney, floral hop aroma. well balanced palate. solid resinous bitter but has the malt to make for a smooth taste. the higher abv is not at all noticeable. this one had been a bit hyped up, so my expectations were pretty high. so while it is definitely a top notch ipa, i was expecting a little more - something that would really set it apart from the pack.
