Photo: Green Flash Brewing Co. West Coast IPA (2015) American Double / Imperial IPA at 8.1% ABV (C$9.29 at Willow Park Wine & Spirits, 650 ml, no bottle date or best before)

Appearance: slightly hazy pale amber with one fat finger of tan head, good retention and excellent lacing. (4/5) Aroma: pine, citrus, caramel malt, tropical fruit. (8/10) Taste: moderate strong sweet, strong bitter. (8/10) Medium-full body, off-dry lingering bitter finish. (4/5)

Not a whole lot different than the 2014. Big piney hops with an emphatic malt background attenuating the hop bittering. Seems a bit more intense than the last time I had it - maybe I just got a newer bottle this time. (16/20)
