It's the perfect season for a classic Double IPA.
Green Flash has a reputation for big beers, in ABV and flavor. Their flagship West Coast IPA takes you through five layers of hop -- Columbus, Simcoe, Centennial, Citra and Cascade. It smells like candy (for grown-ups only.)
In a simultaneously perfect and unperfectly fitting reference, this beer was "here in a flash and gone without a trace."
