look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a pint glass. The white billowy head on this is gigantic atop of a amber body that had cloudy swirls in it, which alarmed me at first since I'm unfamiliar with this style of beer! The hops are at the forefront of the smell. The hops are readily apparent in the taste as well, but are balanced out nicely by a malt flavor. For how high the alcohol percentage is in this beer, it hides it well. After you take a swig you're again reminded of the hops in the aftertaste, there's a common theme here! The mouthfeel of this beer is great, thanks to the balance of the ingredients. Truthfully, if I have to tell someone what my favorite beer is, I'll respond with this one.

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.
