271. Green Flash West Coast IPA

I’ve heard great things about Green Flash and their Imperial IPA (reviewed here) was an excellent double IPA so when they started to distribute to Maine I was excited to try more. I purchased a few different varieties from Bier Cellar last week and the other night decided to try the West Coast IPA.

Color is great with a thick white head. Really nice looking IPA. Smell is also very good with lots of different hops; floral, pine and citrus are all there. Taste starts, continues and finishes with hops. This is not a bad thing as I do enjoy hops but overall I think this beer would be better if it was a bit more balanced.

Looking forward to Rayon Vert, Hop Head Red and whatever else I come across from Green Flash.
