Default Green Flash / Racer 5 IPAs

Green Flash - Holy crap. This thing is rediculously hoppy. The only way I can think to describe it is "gritty" - almost like you could chew it. Love it!

Racer 5 from Bear Republic might be one of my favorite beers ever.

Anyone ever have these? I'm from CT but worked in Phoenix for a while this year and they always had them on tap at The Yardhouse in Glendale.

This should be in commercial beer discussion.

Green Flash West Coast and Green Flash IIPA are both phenomenal.

I will be having a Racer X (the IIPA version of Racer 5) and I love Racer 5 too. I am so lucky to live here.

Agreed - wrong forum. I'll need to look into to the IIPAs though!

Green Flash Double Stout is great. I pick that up when I see it too.

They're both awesome beers, especially on tap.

Green Flash is a brewery out of Vista, CA. It is North County San Diego. They're an awesome little brewery and they're getting more and more attention all the time.

I haven't tried Green Flash yet but I've had several Racer 5s. Awesome IPA IMO!
Make sure you try Bear Republics Red Rocket Ale too. It's a red IPA described a a bastardized scottish red. It's my favorite "BIG" beer.
