Green Flash Brewing Co. Road Warrior Imperial / Double IPA at at 9.0% ABV ($9.09 at Willow Park Wine & Spirits, 650 ml, no bottle date or best before)

Pours clear medium amber with three fingers of light beige head diminishing gradually to a thick cap and chunky lacing. (4/5) Nose is caramel malt, rye, mild citrus, black pepper. (6/10) Taste is mild sweet, strong bitter, mild peppery spice. (8/10) Medium body, moderate carbonation, with an off-dry building bitter finish. (3/5)

I do like me a rye IPA – the sharpness of the rye malt tends to play well with the traditional IPA hop bitterness. And I usually enjoy Green Flash’s offerings. That’s not to say I don’t like this one – I do – but it’s just a little on the aggressive side when it comes to the bittering. Good, but not their best. (14/20)
