185. Green Flash Imperial IPA
This one is very similar to the Alpha Dog IPA review #184. Only significant different is the size of the head as this one was huge. Smell is still has a lot of citrus and a bit of alcohol and taste is almost all hops. Malts are definitely overpowered by the massive hop presence. This one drinks very well for a 9.4% ABV Imperial. Went down smooth and tastes lingered well after the bottle was gone. Exactly what I would expect from a big West Coast IPA.
Pros: Hop taste and aromas
Alcohol Content: 9.4% ABV
IBU (Bitterness): 101

Brewers Description: San Diego IPA, as it has come to be known by many, is pale in color, super-hoppy, high-gravity, yet a highly quaffable ale. Our Imperial IPA is created in this new tradition with intense hop flavors and aromas from a unique blend of Summit and Nugget hops.
