Big Beery Advent Calendar - Beer 11: Green Flash Soul Style IPA, 6.5% (US)

Green Flash says: ”Our brewers rip-creating huge and complex double and triple IPAs at the pinnacle of craft beer enlightenment. Soul Style is their effortless and pure manifestation of the Single IPA. Citra, Simcoe, and Cascade hops are layered, allowing bright tropical waves of flavorful citrus and floral notes to break gently on the palate. Get stoked on a laid back single and ride a wave to soothe your soul.”

We say: Whoa, someone at Green Flash’s been pulling a little too hard on the peace pipe between those surf breaks… We bought this beer because it said “bright and tropical” on the label, and the label was orange. We like orange. Then we opened one and it was like opening a can of Orange Sunshine. This is such a tasty IPA - mangoes, orange blossom, so much tropical goodness you’ll be surprised it doesn’t give you a tan. We can’t think of a better way to kick off your wintry British Friday night.
