Green Flash West Coast I.P.A. 7% A.B.V.
Attention hop heads! Green Flash beers are back! Green Flash West Coast I.P.A. is a bitter brew that combines some of the best hops around to produce this out of control hybrid of an India pale ale. Its magnificent body becomes apparent as soon as this liquid copper hits your glass and as a fine layer of off white bubbles climb their way to the top. On the nose you get an overwhelming scent of hops with subtle notes of citrus. The taste is a whirlwind of flavors including fresh citrus, grapefruit, and pine needles. The alcohol is masked beautifully by these flavors and the tongue is left with a hop residue that you're almost able to chew on. So stop on by and pick up your Green Flash six packs before they disappear. Cheers!

Stone Double Bastard 11.2% A.B.V.
May I begin by saying that one good turn deserves another, especially if you're an arrogant bastard. The double bastard is Stone's seasonal release that separates the men from the boys. The disclaimer on the back says it all! The color is a deep shade of ruby red with a beautiful lacing of off white bubbles. On the nose you get an overwhelming scent of sweet maple syrup, cinnamon apples, and just a touch of rose petals. These smooth aromas translate beautifully to the taste of this beer. At first the taste is a little bitter but is quickly balanced by sweet undertones of cinnamon and sugar. The finish is unique and herbal, the taste reflects that scent of rose petals, and the alcohol content can be felt as it warms the throat. So... Are you worthy? Are you really worthy? Stop on by, pick one up, and see how worthy you really are.
