Green Flash West Coast IPA ....

Tonight's brew is a West Coast IPA from Green Flash Brewing Company.  The twelve ounce bottle shows 7.3% ABV.  The West Coast web site lists IBUs at 95.

This beer poured with a thick, beige colored head.  Beer color in an orange-ish amber.  It is hazy, with a good amount of various size sediment.  The aroma is the type I really enjoy in IPAs: various citrus, pine and some sweetness.  The taste has plenty of grapefruit and pine, with enough malt to balance things out, but the hops are dominant.  A little floral or herbal comes out at the finish.  Malty, velvety mouth feel.  The aftertaste leaves your mouth a little dry with some bitterness.  Very tasty.
