Served from tap in a cervoise at Duke's.

The end of my drinking day. This stuff pours a mostly clear amber topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises sweetbread, mild booze, sweet resin, candied grapefruit zest, and a twinge of red apple. The taste brings in more of the same, the sweet malts and fruity hops really making for a treacle-y sweet flavor profile for most of the time spent on my tongue. Near the end, some dank grass shows up to provide a bitter bite for us. The body is a lean medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, this is too big and sweet for its own good. It's not a bad beer by any stretch, but it was a bit of a chore to work through.

A 12oz bottle with a BB of Feb 2015, so it's slightly out of date. Purchased recently from Trembling Madness in York. The label describes it as a Triple IPA with more than 100 IBUs. Hopped with NZ varieties Pacific Gem and Green Bullet.

A: Poured into a Duvel tulip. A bright orange-amber hue with faint haze and medium carbonation. Yields a large head of creamy white foam that lasts for a few minutes before subsiding to a patchy surface layer. Slight lacing.

S: Aroma of insanely spicy hops with hints of dank weed, pine resin, grass/hay, subtle herbs, leafiness, a twinge of orange peel, caramel malt, mild earthy yeast and stewed hops. Incredibly hoppy and quite complex. Good stuff.

T: Tastes of intense aromatic hops with an overwhelmingly bitter finish. Notes of dank weed, pine resin, orange peel, leafy herbs, grass/hay, caramel malt, earthy yeast and stewed hops. For a brew packing 10% the booze is well hidden. Slightly sweet, followed by a palate-stripping bitterness upon swallowing.

M: Mouthfeel is smooth and tingly, with prickly carbonation and a nice thick body. The hop oils stimulate the tongue and destroy the palate. Seriously astringent, accompanied by an aftertaste of bitter aromatic hops, weed/pine, spice and caramel malt.

O: Boom! This is unbelievably hoppy - a true palate wrecker. Looks good, while the aroma and flavour are stuffed to the gills with notes of pine, weed and grass. Underpinned by subtle caramel malt. Nice body. An intense experience; only hop-heads need apply. If IBUs are your thing then seek this out.

A: Clear redish orange with a nice white head

S: Citrus hops, floral and piney notes as well.

T: Taste follows the nose - citrus, pine, floral and spicy hops linger, with a subtle banana and clove softness. Lemon and hop dryness on the back end.

M: Silky smooth. More drinkable than you'd think with this ABV.

O: A really solid DIPA from a brewery that specializes in West Coast hopiness! Of the four staple IPA's that Green Flash offers, I found this one to be better than West Coast, but not quite as amazing as Palate Wrecker. Probably pretty even with Hop Head Red for me. Definitely worth trying if you haven't had it.

Not a bad ipa by any means... but considering that it's a "triple ipa" it didn't pack the extreme hoppy/high ibu taste I was expecting. I'd defer to green flash's palate wrecker before this one

pours lighter than expected,

tremedous aroma, powerful hops, citrus, weed.

taste follows the aroma, but a bit milder than the aroma.
