3.61/5  rDev -6.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

22 oz bottle.
Poured pale golden, lightly hazy, and with a very durable, large and frothy white head.
This IPA highlights the citrus spectrum, with hints of orange, tangerine and lime peel. These even carry through to the aftertaste to join a subdued but expected grapefruit note. Moderately bitter for style despite the 95 IBU listing.
Medium-high but soft carbonation in a fairly light body.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours a medium gold color (SRM around 8), with a fairly dense, white head that fizzles out quick. First quaff delivers a strong hop aroma, spicy and citrusy. Green Flash reports that they used Simcoe, Amarillo and El Dorado. But the hop aroma profile is a bit of a muddle. The malt is very pale, a rich 2-row type, along with wheat, which lightens the body. Aromas of bitter orange, lemon bergamot, honeysuckle and cedar. The bitterness is quite high and sustained. I'd give it fifty-something IBUs at least. Dry finish with no diacetyl or alcohol. Great hot-weather pale.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: pale gold, nearly clear, bright white tower of foam left lacing down the glass

S: very floral with hints of citrus breeze; some dry wood and moist pine; something like bread dough and yeast

T: up front crisp, floral, and citric (orange and lemon pith) elements; the finish brings more wood and pine; hints of spice; pale malts lend slightly honeyed sweetness and grain backbone; yeastiness...

M: juicy wet fruit-feel while remaining light, tingly, tightening and crisp; dynamic bittering across the palate; slight chew on the back-end

O: a very nice IPA, accentuating the citric; uses Simcoe, Amarillo, and El Dorado hops - grab a bottle, fans of the featured hops in particular... bright, tight, bursting with flowers

Steering the hoppy path, their odyssey through all the various hops available to them, the Green Flash brewers blend Simcoe, Amarillo and El Dorado for a sharply bitter taste and a soft bready body.

Golden and hazy, the ale casts a deeper gaze then usual. As it billows with an arid cottony froth, the beer boastfully shares its aromatic secrets. Citrus laced with fresh-cut grass, light wine and pepper whet the palate, but its first sip is of sweetened grain, light bread and soft, fresh dough.

Trending bitter and spicy, the taste quickly sheds its sweetness and propels the hops. White grapefruit, bitter orange, grassy chive, peppercorn and juniper berry blend for a complex flavor spread that circulates around hops.

The beer finishes magically. What's creamy and wheaty also gives a crisply dry character. Aided by the zesty sprite of carbonation, wine-like tang, gin-like tendencies and the bitterness of dried citrus peel- a supreme tanginess only intensifies. Stemmy, grassy and herbal; the finishing flavors seem to shift with every drink, even venturing into peppercorn and fennel at times.

Love this oft overlooked style. Pours pale orange with a fluffy off-white blanket of froth. Smells uplifting, with notes of citrus and orange peel. Tastes of orange, lemon, melon and grain and just hoppy enough.

As far as IPA hybrids go I'll choose one of these over a "session" IPA any day.

3.84/5  rDev -0.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A: Pours a golden yellow color with 2+fingers of head that fades down to some sticky bubbles that leave some nice lacing

S: Belgian yeast and fruitiness up front along with some orange peel and citrus notes from the hops. Some maltiness in the back to hold things up

T: Starts off with hint of the Belgian yeast with a focus on the fruitiness and citrusy hops. Bitterness runs wild throughout, but that's expected at 95 IBUs. Finishes with lingering bitterness and a bit of the citrus notes

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: An emphasis on the citrusy notes and bitterness with the Belgian yeast in the back seat (at least in the taste) make this a more balanced brew then their regular Le Freak. It's definitely more on the IPA side, which works. Worth a shot

Beautifully golden, transparent throughout with a fluffy white head, leaving heavy lace down the glass.

Hoppy Belgian on the nose - a basket of citrus, with orange, lemon, some floral and yeast.

Muted carbonation, closes with a really enjoyable earthy bitterness that stays and stays. Hop bomb, no doubt.

I really like this beer - it packs a significant hop punch, but in a way that offers it somewhat subtly, if that's possible.

Bottle poured into a shaker pint. Best by 10/29/14

A - Straw gold with a slight haze. Rocky white head. Tons of sticky lacing.

S - Nice juicy hop nose. Spiced up. Little bit of sweetness in there.

T - Pungent prickly spicy hop flavor and malt holds up. Bold bitterness lingers a little too long.

M - Medium body, semi-dry, low to medium-low carbonation.

O - Light color earns the white title. Nontraditional hop aroma distinguishes this white IPA. A little aggressive on bitterness. Would prefer this beers body a little lighter.
