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.

Bottle. Pour is a lovly orangish amber and holds a nice and dense two fingers of foam. Aromas are heavily pine and grapefruit with a touch of sweet malt promised. Flavor is wonderfully hoppy with a perfect ammount of malt to balance out the bitterness. Fabulous.

6 pack from Capone’s in Norristown. Had everything I expected in an IPA with slightly more bitterness. Worth a try.

Poured like liquid gold. Not much head. Smells very much like a citrus explosion. The bitterness of this beer compliments the overall feeling asssociated with it.

12 oz. bottle. Pours gold with amber hues with a thin, off-white, creamy head. Great lacing. Huge citrus and spice hop nose. a few piny notes, grapefruit and a touch of lemon. Big old hoptastic bitterness, with sweet hop citrus/floral taste. Moderate malty notes. Big bitterness at the end and a citrus/bitterness after. Deliciouso!!

Bottled. Poured brilliant medium orange with a medium cap of creamy beige head. The aroma was delightfully aggressive even when cold (I did let it warm up).. juicy grapefruit and pine with a light and bright caramel backing.. juicy and nicely balanced. The flavor had a sweet caramel and grapefruit meat core with pine, pear, and grapefruit bitterness all over the tongue.. long sweet and bitter finish. Medium-bodied and slightly grainy on the palate.. the strong bitterness and fine balance worked great here!

An excellent IPA. Huge hoppy flavor, but very flavorful. Good malt base. Nice dry bitter finish. I love this kind of beer. Dogfishhead’s 90-minute still has a small edge I think, but this is truly a fine beer.

Opaque amber with a minimal white head. Basically, tastes of a combination of severe hops damage plus fresh grains and grass. Not a very well balanced beer, but for a most typical west coast IPA I guess this was expected. The alcohol is well hidden and could have been more prominent. Did not enjoy.

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2011 Just had this on tap and updating scores... Pours a nice caramel color with lots of floaties. A hoppy scent and a nice head. A good tasting IPA with a good bitter aftertaste.

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2008 Pours a clear copper with an ecru head that rapidly subsides to a thin coating on the surface. Lovely lacing. A nice blend of hops assails the nose with a bold complexity. The grapefruit and pine aromas take one straight to the California woods. After sipping/quaffing this ale, one understands the true meaning of IPA, as it rolls around the mouth firing off the taste buds. The aftertaste is a perfect counterpoint to the initial aroma, and extends deep into the throat. All in all, a superb experience.

Bottle. Nice carmel color, lots of hops in the aroma. Flavor was a nice mix of pine, citrus, grapefruit and malt. Nice IPA.
