I've had this sitting in the cabinet since February of last year, so we'll have to see how this turns out.
A: Cloudy, a deep, darker gold color. I'm not sure if this is supposed to be this hazy or not, but it's definitely pretty opaque.
S: You definitely smell the hops in this. It really overpowers any of the associated smell that you'd get from a trippel.
T: Wow. This is a really unique one. I guess I'm differing from some of the other reviewers here in that this seems to have more of a characteristically IPA taste than a trippel taste. I think the only bit of the trippel that I'm tasting comes from the finish and aftertaste, where you get a little bit of spice.
M: Not as full as I would expect, put still pretty nice. It certainly lingers for awhile though.
D: I wouldn't think that you could do more than a couple of these in an evening, but I'm finding myself sipping it with regularity. I'm sure I'll slow down at some point though...

4.46/5 rDev +10.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5
A: 3 finger white head of robust foam, orange and bubbly.
S: Bubble gum, banana, Belgian yeast, spicy hops
T: Holy Moly! A lot going on here. Banana/Clove yeast like flavor quickly gives way to piney, spicy hops. This is a wonderful hybrid of Belgian Tripell followed by West Coast IPA. This is a big league beer, as to be expected from Green Flash.
M: The only drawback on this is mouthfeel. It is a little light, but only because my expectations were higher with the ABV. Surprisingly drinkable.
O: Highly recommended. If you like this style, Green Flash nails it. I have had 3-4 different Belgian IPAs and this is definitely the best I've had thus far.
