Had to bring out something special for review #100!
22oz. bottle poured into a snifter glass. (and shared with others!)
A- a clear light amber/orange with one finger of fluffy head that dissipates quickly. Not much in the way of lacing, and certainly some alcohol legs.
S- Almost a 5 on smell. Booze is hidden well, but a little is there, fresh grapefruit, mango, peach, orange, and papaya with a hint of white pepper. Fantastic.
T- Deceptive. Starts out with a dance between biscuity and slightly caramel malts and moderate bitterness, but the hops/bitterness ramp up in a serious way mid to end of the sip. Hops are largely piney and resinous in nature, but do have a citric tinge to them. The more you drink, the more the bitterness layers on top of itself. Palette Wrecker indeed.
M- I can't compliment them enough here. light to moderate carbonation moves things along but doesn't get in the way, the mouthfeel is medium to medium-full, creamy and just a tad syrupy.
O- This is an outstanding imperial IPA. Haven't had anything like it before, and I congratulate Green Flash on coming up with something new, and not following the crowd. Fantastic.
