Green Flash West Coast IPA

Green Flash Brewing Company, San Diego, CA

As craft beer pioneers, we embarked on an expedition to brew the benchmark West Coast IPA.  We ventured into the unknown and struck gold, discovering a tantalizing menagerie of hops.  Simcoe for tropical and grapefruit zest, Columbus for hop pungency, Cascade for floral aroma, Centennial for pine notes, and Citra for citrus zest are layered throughout the brewing process.  West Coast IPA exemplifies the Green Flash spirit of adventure and discovery.

8.1% ABV

Hazy amber in color with a nose of Citra hops and malt.  Tastes quite bitter, though Large Marge can pick out the Citra on the palate.  Little malt is detectable on the palate, but there is a touch of fruit noticeable through the bitterness.  On the taste spectrum for IPAs it is definitely on the bitter end of the scale.  Highly recommended for fans of bitter beers!

Would we have it again?  Yes

Would we get a 6-pack?  Not at 8.1% ABV
