Where – Dos Pinas Taqueria
How – On Tap
Green Flash West Coast IPA on-tap is always a welcome sight. The local taqueria tends to have it on tap, and it is an easy pick for me.
It is actually a Double IPA, so the ABV is 8.1%, and you can taste it with the 95 IBUs.
Creamy head, with tropical and grapefruit zest. Amber orange pour and intensely hoppy. Fairly carbonated.
Overall, if I am in the mood for a bigger IPA, this is a good choice. To me, it comes off hoppier than some of the others DIPAs like Enjoy By, and not quite as smooth. There is some caramel sweetness and pineyness. Aptly named, as to me, this is what a California, especially San Diego, IPA is.
My score: 86/100.
