Green Flash Brewing Company's West Coast IPA is "extravagantly hopped," with Simcoe, Columbs, Centennial and Cascade hops building a nuanced hop profile. This West Coast, American style India Pale Ale is 7.30% ABV, and pours out a pretty copper with a frothy white head that leaves chunky lacing behind. The nose of this IPA is of grapefruit and orange hops (Simcoe), pine hops (Centennial), and a malt backbone: sweet caramel, roasted notes, and pith. The taste is first of grapefruits and pith, opening to pine bitterness, flower petal floral hops, caramel malts and roasted malts balancing against all this, and a minty tobacco finish. The mouthfeel of Green Flash West Coast IPA is dry and full, with just enough carbonation. Best enjoyed at 45-50"F in a pint glass, mug, or stein, Green Flash West Coast IPA is an easy drink, even at 7.30% ABV. Pairs well with curried or Thai foods, peppery or sharp cheeses, and salmon dishes.
