TheBEERSgoneBAD: “Imperial IPA” by Green Flash Brewing Co Beer Review

23 Aug


A small company with big ideas.

Mike and Lisa Hinkley took their interest in the craft beer industry to a new level in 2002 when they founded Green Flash Brewing Company. Former pub owners, Mike and Lisa jumped into brewing, and in 2003 renowned brewmaster Chuck Silva joined the team.

With Chuck on board we began brewing premium style beers, modern twists on traditional styles, and our beers began to develop a following. Cutting edge brews, Green Flash Brewing Company’s beers don’t fit traditional guidelines, instead we let our hybrid, benchmark beers blaze their own trail.

Located in San Diego, CA, we specialize in brewing assertive and distinctive beers, such as our West Coast I.P.A.: an award-winning beer whose wide acceptance has helped define a category. We also brew seasonal, collaborative and barrel-aged beers.

Our award-winning beers are on draft and bottled and are available throughout the United States in bars, restaurants and retail outlets.

Our People

A small team of people making great beer.

Every person on our team contributes to the success our beers, and we rely on them to continue to bring a new, fresh approach to brewing beer. Here’s to the team that brews, bottles, markets, sells, and delivers the brews of Green Flash Brewing Company.

    I had this beer for the first time last night and thought it was pretty great. It walked the line really well between super hoppiness and malty sweetness (unlike, say, AleSmith’s IPA, which smells a LOT like weed, and tastes a little like it too, or Dog Fish Head’s 90 Minute DIPA, which is nauseatingly sweet).

    Great blog guys, and good post. Also, there is a Hemp Ale by (surprise!) Humboldt Brewing Company. They have it at BevMo. But I’m with Scott—I think it sounds pretty unappealing tbh :/

    Do you guys work at Bird Rock Surf Shop? My girlfriend lives a block away from there and I think I keep seeing you guys there in the parking lot haha. If so, maybe I’ll drop by with a donation for the blog in the form of my favorite brew 😉
