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.

Hazy peach body topped by a tall and creamy head. Excellent retention and lots of sticky lacing. Bold aroma of fresh pine, citrus, grass, and herbal florals. Medium body with good carbonation and some hop oiliness. Bitter tasting start to finish. Pine, grass, and grapefruit sweep away any suggestion of a sweet malt presence. Aggressively hoppy and bitter. An excellent IPA for those who love hops and dont like sweet pale ales.

12 oz bottle: Light amber color with medium sized off white head. Aroma is full of citrusy hops, notes of grapefruit and tangerine. Flavor has notes of toasted malt, fair amount of citrusy hops, bit of honey. Finish is pretty firmly bitter.

Has a wondefully citrusy floral aroma. One IPA that any true hop-head or beer lover should try. Tons of hops and graininess. I really love it. A ton.

Tangerine/Copper pour with excellent head. Pine/Floral/Citrus aroma. Light creamy palate with light caramel malt flavor that instantly gives way to all of the hoppy goodness...simcoe very present.

UPDATED: APR 26, 2007 Pours orange with thin white head. Lots of Hops. Pretty good pine and grapefruit notes. Decent IPA that grows on you as you drink.

Pours a nice hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is fuity, mostly grapegruits. Nice lacing. Sharp hop presence. Well balanced IPA. Impressive.

What can I say that no one else has? All I am going to say is that this IPA is pretty damn good. It has everything you would want from an IPA: lots of hops, great head, nice color, lots of citrus notes. One of the best Ive had in a long time!

One of the best straight up IPAs Ive had in a few months. Big, sweet, juicy aroma followed a hazy red pour topped with a creamy head. Heavenly bitterness, but enough of pine and citrus off-shoots to balance out a make an even-keeled ale. I am definitely hoping to see more of Green Flash in my area.

poured from a 12oz. bottle into a snifter glass A: A delicious looking honeyed-orange copper color with a one-finger off-white foamy head. It goes away quickly yet leaves some nice thick lacing. S: A superb-smelling beer, with lots of varied, complex hop aromas coupled with nice warm toasted caramel maltiness. T: While the bready malted backbone of this beer is not to be ignored, this beer derives nearly all its flavor from the multitudes of hops, hops, and more hops! Zesty citrus hops blast your tongue to start, and fruity, juicy grapefruit & pine notes take over from there. The maltiness finishes everything up and keeps the beer from being overly bitter. M: Oily, fizzy carbonation makes up the majority of this beers feel. D: Could easily drink these all day, this might be a new summer brew for me.
