Green Flash Brewing Glass (473ml Glass)
This West Coast-Style India Pale Ale is extravagantly hopped, full flavoured, medium bodied and copper coloured. 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.
Poured a golden/amber with a foamy, off white head and draping lacing that coated the glass. The aroma was a bright, expressive layering of floral, pine, and citrus as grapefruit, hop notes, with the edge smoothed some by malt. In the flavor, the hops took center stage again, adding an assertive bitterness blended with a little sweetness and malt. A hop carpet for the tongue, with the bitterness lasting past the finish.
