COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Editor’s 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.

AcctError76287 (298) - framingham, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 2, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2008 bottle. Nice light copper color. Thick, pillowy head foams up quick and sticks around nicely. Aromas of loads of hops- a big grapefruit citrus blast on the nose. Sharp but not overdone bitterness, tons of hop flavor. Lemons, grapefruits, some piney resin flavors. Full and layered hop character. Some toasted bread malt in the background, but this one is all hops-forward. Superb C-hop, west coast style IPA.

Average fast disappearing head. Cloudy amber colour. Floating small particles.A hoppy nose. Missing sweetness and softness of taste. Some grapefruit in the taste. Also some blackcurrent in the nose.

On tap. Orange and amber in color with a frothy two-finger head that produced very nice lacing. The initial aroma was light citrus with some pine hops and plenty of pleasant floral hops. Thin malts. The flavor was some light malt overrun by pine and floral hops. Very little in terms of citrus. Super dry finish and a decent mouthfeel.

Bottled. Amber colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is fruity hops, alcohol, sweet malts and mild notes of grass. Flavour is big grassy and flowery hops along with some fruityness carrying it up. Attempt at going for a big IPA, but a bit unbalanced in my opinion.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy dark orange with a white head that leaves nice, thick lacing. Aroma of pine, floral, grapefruit and other citrus hops. Initial flavor of piney hops with a bitter finish. As the beer warms, sweet caramel malt comes out. Medium-heavy mouthfeel. Tasty beer and pretty easy to drink. Yum!

bottle poured a caramel amber in color with a thick white frothy two finger head and great retention. there is a fair amount of sediment in the glass. aroma has juicy grapefruit, citrus peels, pine, and sweetness. mouth feel is medium. flavor hits with a hop wallop, citrus galore, and malt as an afterthought. finish is drying with resins and bitters. it’s got some good hop bite, really nice glass of hop juice.

sayravai (4711) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 26, 2008
(Bottled) Slightly hazy golden with a medium, frothy and lacy head. Very hoppy, but somewhat harsh aroma with some toffeeish hops. Strong grapefruity-piney hops also in the flavor, but the overall harshness is disturbing. Some maltiness backing it up, but not enough. Medium-bodied, very bitter palate with medium carbonation. A quite Severin-like brew with too much cat-pee to be fully enjoyable.

fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 24, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2008 Bottle. Grapefruit! Grapefruit nose, cringingly bitter grapefruit flavor, long-lasting finish/afteraste that feels like a continuous trickle of fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice across my tongue and cheeks. Devilishly luscious.

3.9
caesar (7465) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 24, 2008
Bottle in Aarhus. Hazy golden color, loads of debris floating around. Lovely fruity aroma, grapefruit, hop. Very bitter taste, quite dry, almost astringent. Nice stuff.
