Saw this at ShopRite Liquors and noticed the relatively hefty price tag that it came with. I wasn't sure if it would be worth it, given that I've never had a "Triple" IPA before. This was indeed a hop bomb but because the alcohol was so subdued, this didn't taste as strong as it felt once I had polished this off. It almost reminded me of a Barleywine because of the Rye notes and how filling this was but there was enough here to like for any hophead, without being too potent or overly bitter.

Nice pour to this, as it had a dark apricot hue, relatively deep head, and several rings of lacing left as I worked my way through it. Lots of earthy, metallic hops in the nose and even more so in the taste, along with a fair amount of rye and alcohol. No, it didn't feel as strong as it's 10+% ABV but I could notice the booze in the aftertaste. There was enough grapefruit and white chocolate-like sweetness in this to keep things fresh and for a beer this strong, this was a relatively easy sipper. Some amber and resin made this mouthfeel a bit thick, and the carbonation was spot-on, which helped this beer live up to it's highly-rated West Coast counterparts.

To be fair, this was strong and one in a sitting would be more than enough. There was more than enough flavor to enjoy and while this wasn't "Triple" in anything more than name, it's a good example of what a Double should be. Strong fruits, hop bitterness, and body combine for a tasty beer that almost rose up above its counterparts, but came up just a bit short. If you're into other offerings from Green Flash or similar breweries (Stone, Sierra Nevada, etc), this one won't disappoint.
