Green Flash West Coast IPA

green_flash_west_coast_ipa

This is a really top notch example of a hoppy west-coast style IPA without being overly bitter. There’s pine and grapefruit in the nose.   The middle is bready, with more pine and grapefruit.  The body is thick and heavy, and the finish is slightly sweet with bread and grapefruit, and just a little bit grassy.  This is the first brew that I’ve had from San Diego’s Green Flash Brewing Company, so I didn’t know what to expect, but from the first sip it instantly hit me that this beer is exactly what I want and expect an IPA to be.  I really, really like it.

I give it a 4.8 out of 5.
