This west coast iipa has got to be my favorite right now.. perfect blend of hops for my palate.. mmmmmm.

anybody have any semblance of an idea as to how to clone this delicious beer? or any of the other greenflash brews (hop head red, west coast ipa in particular)?

I've been trying to find an all-grain recipe for this for a while. This is by far my favorite beer...and its local! I'm not quite at the point to formulate my own clones, but maybe someone here can do it. Although most people probably haven't tasted it, I don't think its available too far from SD.

Email them! They're homebrewers as well as pro brewers. They might be helpful.

You'd be surprised. It is available in a lot of places. We're just lucky to be from its home town.

I love the Green Flash west coast IPA also. It is not a IIPA, but it will kick your butt after 2-3 pints. Had it on tap at Wolf Creek in Santa Clarita.

I would love to duplicate this but have not found anything on it either.

They make an IIPA as well. The West Coast is awesome.

Just emailed the brewery about letting some of us homebrewers in on the recipe. Not sure if I'll get anything but if I do I'll be sure to pass it on
