4.15/5  rDev +3.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A new brew from a new Member of the Iowa beer family.

Pours a nice dark gold with white head and great lacing.

Nose is medicinal, perfumy, hops, spicy.

Taste is a great blend of Belgian hops and some mellowness I didn't expect. I figured they would throw in some massive hops and some in your face taste once again. This one is actually mellow.

Mouth feel is velvety and lovely. Overall, I think this one is a repeater. It's not easy to categorize other than it goes in the category of "I like it".

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.
