Beer review: Green Flash Imperial IPA

Now it’s time to enjoy an Imperial IPA from Green Flash Brewing Co. located in San Diego, California. According to their website this beer has been hopped with Summit and Nugget hops, and sports an IBU of 101. Can’t wait!

Slightly hazy dark golden orange color with a big thick head. Looks delicious!


I’m getting pine, malty sweetness, some grapefruit, fresh cut green grass and some alcohol.

There is quite a lot going on in the aroma. Can’t wait to taste it!


Fresh cut green grass and grapefruit with a good malty backbone. Lovely mouth feel with mellow carbonation.

There is a good warming feeling from the beer that is most likely from the alcohol. Really good!


Up front it feels slightly bitter with some hints of green grass with some lovely sweet malty tones. After a while it gets quite bitter and leaves you wanting some more.


A really well balanced imperial IPA with a big hoppy punch, just the way I like it! Score: 4.8/5.
