Handsome orangey amber with a fine-textured foam in the big Petrus goblet. Vast aromatics. The distinctive fruity New Zealand hop is unmistakable.

Sweet malt greets the lips. Hot with alcohol. Seriously spicy. Warm amber malt flavors with some roasted grain. But it's a little caramel washed over by the tangy hops. Moderate bitterness; it's really more hot from the booze than bitter. However, it's enough bitterness to nail this down. Funky with carnations? what an aroma!

A huge hop experience that manages to be perfectly drinkable. Make that sippable. I think people who crave the biggest hop brews should try this. I have tried all the Green Flash regular brews but this one has escaped me. I'm adding it to the shopping list when I run out of my stash of Stone's Enjoy By 12-31-14. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Liticker's Liquor in Ocean Beach.

Clear amber color with a thin thick head with short retention.
Nice aroma with tropical notes and bold pine, with hints of passion fruit, caramels, mango, spices, cantaloupe and nectarines.
Bold flavor with notes of caramels, strong pine, spices, toasted malts, pineapple juice, grass, grapefruit, mango, cantaloupe and resins. Dry aftertaste with a strong long lasting bitterness. Its 100+ IBUs passed the sneeze hop test.
Medium towards full body with appropriate carbonation. Alcohol of 10.1% abv is there but well tamed by its flavors.
Big DIPA (or Triple IPA as they call it), I liked the fact that is relatively not too malty balancing towards a spice piney and tropical hop profile. As great beers it sure improves through the degustation, I had to keep raising its score. A must for hop addicts.

First taste will grab you by the booboo! Could brew that you don't want to consume too fast.

Smell for me dictates taste and for this one, not a good thing. Rotting fruit? Glad I tried it but wish the store had it as a single. One time deal on this one. No date info so no idea on freshness. Don't usually buy IPAS without dates. Took a chance. At 10% it does the job. That's about all I can say

One of my favorite DIPA, (or Triple I suppose). Very piney and citrus flavors and aromas going on. This one is NOT a malt bomb it is extremely bitter but balanced, which an ipa should be... Awesome!

This is a beer to experience. Definitely one to try out when you're feeling adventurous and or needing to feel numb. I really enjoyed this beer the first time I tried it; the second time I just thought the IBU's were overpowering. This would be a good beer to drink while smoking a cigar. Overall I'd say this is a good beer when you're in a bold mood and still want to relax.
