Green Flash West Coast IPA

Green Flash West Coast IPA comes from sunny San Diego, California. It's brewed by the the Green Flash Brewing Co. and contains a hearty 7.3% alcohol. It's sold in excellent four packs and comes in cool-shaped 12oz. bottles. The label states that this brew is "Extravagantly hopped".

The Green Flash IPA is a foggy, amber-gold coloured ale topped with an eggshell head that fades quickly to a thin disc. Its vibrant, hop-heavy showcases notes of grapefruit, but also contains some malty caramel heft. It has a full-bodied mouthfeel, with a dry, bitter finish. It's a very hoppy beer with notes of citrus riding shotgun and caramel in the backseat. It doesn't taste boozy, exactly, but you can certainly tell that its strong.

If you're a stranger to the west coast IPA style, this one'll give you an education--it's boozy, aggressively hoppy, and heavy on the citrus. It's a really good example and a really good beer to boot.

Rating: 9.0 out of 10.
