Green Flash Brewing Company West Coast IPA

What the brewers say

“A menagerie of hops is layered throughout the brewing process: Simcoe for unique fruitiness and grapefruit zest, Columbus for strong hops pungency, Centennial for pine and citrus notes, and Cascade for floral aroma. A multi-dimensional hops experience.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Strong citrus hop aroma with slight perfume-like notes and little-to-no malt aroma. Some ripe peach, floral notes, subtle peppercorn spice. Piney, citrus, and a touch catty (Simcoe hops?). Nice complexity.”

Flavor: “Citrus grapefruit hops dominate and linger throughout. Hops at the forefront with notes of over-ripened grapefruit and pine. Bitterness and sweetness balance well together, though bitterness definitely dominates and lingers.”

Overall: “Clean IPA with good citrus notes that showcase well. The bitterness lasts a bit too long into the aftertaste to make this a “re-order” beer. Thin body doesn’t help the cause, but still very drinkable and showcases different hop varieties.”
