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.

(draft @ The Old Toad - Rochester, NY) Golden color with a mound of creamy white foam. Aroma is lots and lots of zesty and floral hops and citrus. Flavor is floral and hoppy with lots of pine and citrus flavors mixed with a noticeable malt backbone and a very bitter and peppery finish. Very nice.

Thanks to HogTownHarry, drank minus Harry but on Harrys balcony :-) Apperance: Deep amber orange, lots of floaties, nice light white head. Citrus aroma, some hop, malt too. Flavour: Malt and pine, lemon and grapefruit, mmmm delicious.

This one is worthy of its "West Coast" label. A definite hop bomb. A floral, flavorful IPA, and a definite must try. Much better than the barleywine that I tried from them.

UPDATED: APR 29, 2008 Sweet Jesus, this is good. Nice hazy deep copper-orange pour. Smallish but tenacious creamy/frothy off-whitehead. A little yeast floating around... a very active beer. Lots of grapefruit on the nose; floral. A little yeasty. Not a far cry from Two Hearted. More grapefruit zest, hops, and fruit on the palate and not quite as floral as Two Hearted overall. More malt/resiny backbone. Hope we keep getting more west coast brews over here. Yum.

JorisPPattyn (9981) - Ursel, BELGIUM - APR 21, 2008
Draught Amber clear beer with small, off-white head. Flowery, delicate but outspoken dry hopse, dried roses, sultana’s. Un-be-lie-va-bly flowery, grapey, super-aromatic hops taste, amongst the most delicate and powerful ever tasted - superb. Slightly burning MF, medium bodied, fiery, slick. One of the best IPA’s I’ve ever had, full stop.

JohnC (3008) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - APR 20, 2008
On tap at Dr. BIll’s amber pour with a barrage of citric & pine hop aromas & flavor. Nice example of the style

garretjax (103) - Colorado, USA - APR 20, 2008
Clear copper amber color with a fluffy white head. Malt, citrus and juicy piney hop aromas. Medium body and medium carbonation. Bitter hops flavor with some redeeming grapefruit qualities. Dry clean finish that hangs just long enough.

hoppopotamus (260) - Santa Cruz, California, USA - APR 19, 2008
An amber-copper hazy beer with lots of large particulate (yeast) floating around, which lost it points on appearance. Large off-white head that sticks around and leaves lace. The aroma is pure hop, mostly fruity (grape, perhaps lychee) but also floral and citrus. Well-rounded hop profile. The flavor is more hops (no surprise), a hint of caramel maltiness, and a bitter finish. If the yeast would settle out, this would be near the top of my list for IPAs. Kind of bridges the gap between IPA and imperial IPA. Great beer.

Flaske. Super dejlig duft af humle. Citrus og en smule blomster. Masser af bid i smagen, får rigtig meget props for at være frisk og drikbar efter en tur over atlanten. Helt klart den bedste af de 3 Green Flash bryg der foreløbig er dukket op i lille Danmark.
