The Brü Revü – Green Flash West Coast IPA
The Green Flash West Coast IPA is another beer I had on tap at Whip-In which was served slightly warm. I wasn’t sure if they meant to serve it warm, but I think the beer was better for it. This beer is hops, hops, and more hops! Definitely a West Coast IPA with a very clean hop bite and a lingering resinous hop aftertaste. This one leans more towards the piney hops rather than a strong citrus flavor with a very in your face hoppiness. While the bartendress warned me that it was really aggressive I found that I enjoyed it, although I could see where it would wear down your palate as it is a huge hop bomb. It was a good IPA especially if you are looking for a hop overload, but I would grab something with a little more balance.
