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.

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.

this is a clear straw colored intoxicant emanating a full spectrum hop aroma. light on the palate, an easy all afternoon on the diamond refreshment. the malt is there though just slightly, not sugary at all. Nice long lasting bitter finish

On tap at Radio Maria in downtown Champaign. Served in a tulip glass. Amber colored pour with a small white head. Strong floral and pine hop aroma. Flavor was similar. Intense grapefruit and piney hops. Not balanced by any means - just a hint of caramel malts lurking underneath the intense hop bitterness. Dry finish, medium mouthfeel. Hop resins linger on the palate. Top notch if you’re looking for a very bitter but somehow still very drinkable IPA.

On tap. Pours light gold with a thin but frothy head. Nose is sweet but citrusy, like red grapefruit; just lots of hops and a bitterness that never really goes away. I felt the bitterness was the major characteristic, but I enjoyed it.

AllAboutStout (605) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 10, 2008
Pours a nice golden amber in color. Has a nice quarter inch head on the pour, and maintains a nice froth on top of the beer.
Smell is wonderful floral and citrus hops. Very nice. Taste is the same, but there’s a nice bite to it. This is an incredible IPA that would stand up to some DIPA’s. Good and refreshing on the mouthfeel. Well done.

Pours a dark amber color with foamy white head. Very hoppy aroma balanced by caramel malt presence. Flavor very similar to arom. Very quaffable IPA with a nice sweet maltiness balancing out the bitter hops.
