Description 

Our cross-continental IPA. Made with Australian and American hops, this citrus heavy IPA opens up in the glass with notes of pineapple, tangerine, and orange rind. It’s sharply bitter . . . The name comes from the initial batch in which, post boil, the wort looked green from so much hop particulate floating around.

This beer pours a hazy deep golden color with an orange hue that is certainly a part of the popular New England-style IPA. It has a dense white head that lasts, which hangs onto the glass as it goes down. The aroma is all hops – orange, pineapple, tangerine, grass, lemon rind, grapefruit and some onion. The flavor doesn’t let up on the hop dominance. An orange cream-like character is the strongest, but waves of complexity wash in behind it with pineapple, lemon, mango, grass and pine that completely coat the tongue in hop oils. The bitterness isn’t too high, but it has some astringency and a raw, (fittingly enough) green hop character that cuts through the beautiful hop cloud you’re riding on in a negative way.
