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.

Beautiful Burnt Orange color with almost perfect head. Nice hoppy nose with citrus and a little licorice. very intense hop flavor. Not enough malt to balance the hop in my opinion, but just my opinion. Finishes very nice.

On Tap at Yard House, Costa Mesa. Pours amber brown with fluffy white head. Aroma of hops and citrus. Flavor is spicy and intensely hoppy, but finishes with a nice roastiness. A good IPA in the San Diego Style.

really nice floral hop aroma, hazy coppery orange tinted pour, flavor of pine and grapefruit with some malt in the background. Very good finish. Nice balance of flavor, aroma and bittering hops.

Beerman6686 (6607) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 2, 2008
Poured a nice cloudy orange color with an off white head. Aroma is of a lot of piney hops mostly. Flavor is also of piney hops mainly with some citrus, not very well balanced by the malts, but in a good way.

Plovmand (8232) - Helsinge, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2008
Bottle. The colour is amber with a beautiful white head. Oh so fresh hoppy aroma with grapefruit, fresh grass, exotic fruits and a good malt base. Flavour is very hoppy and leads to grapefruity notes with pine and flowers. I love Simcoe so I really had to love this beer.
