As our GPS guided us to Green Flash, I thought for certain it malfunctioned as we pulled into a nondescript office park. But it turns out this was no ordinary white collar bastion -- it was home to Green Flash Brewing.
After taking a look at the tap list, I couldn't decide so I opted for a sampler.
On the far right is the Saison Diego. It was a hazy golden ale with very little head. It's brewed with Seville orange peels, ginger and grains of paradise per the website. It was light but spicy...a little earthy and quite tasty.
Beer #3 in the photo was the Rayon Vert. Green Flash described it as being their flagship if they were founded in Belgium. It's their Belgian-style pale ale and I should have known better. But this was early in the beer-cation and I hadn't fully given in to the hop yet. My notes indicate it was way too hoppy for me. I went for it because it was conditioned with Brettanomyces. That definitely added a nice dryness.
Next up was the Double Stout Black Ale. It poured black as night with a full light tan head. It was fantastic. Very roasted and creamy -- almost reminded me of a milk stout with a hint of hops in the finish. Excellent.
As far as the one on the left...I haven't a clue. I stopped taking notes but based on the picture below, I really seemed to enjoy it!
