Green Flash West Coast IPA (-2013)

RATINGS: 2163   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.87/5   IBU: 95   EST. CALORIES: 219   ABV: 7.3%
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.

Thanks Jamie! Full flavored indeed, the Simcoe hops arent overwhelming which makes this brew desirable. Strong characteristics follow through to the finish. I got real light, but noticable layers of lacing on the pint glass. My senses were perked with this mildly explosive brew. The use of the simcoe hops here was well done.

Beautiful orange-copper pour. Perfect frothy, white-laced head. Aroma of hemp, freshly cut grass and grapefruit. Initial taste of grapefruit, orange and tree bark. Fairly balanced palate. Warming alcohol aftertaste with a prodigious mouthfool of hops. I love this stuff!

Teetering on the edge of 500 ratings, I realized Ive almost been through a case of this and havent rated it yet. Pours out a light copper color with a small lacing white head. Aroma is of citrus hops. The taste is upfront citrus/grapefruit and floral hops with a slight sweetness to balance out the hop bitterness. Refreshing beer and a very solid example of this style.

UPDATED: NOV 21, 2006 12 oz bottle. Clear orange with a frothy bone head; some stays. Honey and faint citrus. Pineapple-grapefruit, a little brown sugar, increasingly bitter peppery pith. Oily drying. Elmers glue aftertaste. Columbus? Pretty nice until that final note.

The creamy head hides the very cloudy, honey bronze color beneath. The nose is of bitter hay, either toasted or burnt. This is a RICH tasting IPA, very creamy. The initial strength passes to a fizzy middle flavor, followed by a bitter sour-malt flavor at the end. Overall, a great winter IPA, although its awfully heavy.
