Had this on 2013-10-01 in Lynchburg, VA

A - Mildly hazy, golden-orange with a 2-finger offwhite head that fades fairly quickly to 1/2-finger and leaves pretty good lacing.

S - Very nice but not overpowering by any means. Sweet citrus, hop floral, touch of pine and pale malt, a little bit dank.

T - Up front, a pleasant orange flesh and malt; followed quickly by some pine and an herbal/medicinal flavor. The hop oils and bitterness come rampaging in but go fade away quicker than expected (in like a lion out like a lamb). The alcohol is quite evident but I don't mind its sweetish/hot contribution to the flavor. The aftertaste is citrus, pine and hop bitterness.

M - Medium body and light-medium carbonation. Creamy, prickly and resinous.

O - I like this beer. It is well-balanced and tastes good. It's not as destructive as Palate Wrecker, which I liked, but I like this better. This beer is more considerate of my taste buds!

Green Flash Brewing Co. - Green Bullet Triple IPA, poured into a DFH Spiegelau IPA glass.

Look - Pours a clear filtered copper amber, slightly pale. Sports a massive bubbly head that retains well. Nice chunky lacing.

Smell - Aroma is good. Brilliant tropical citrus hop aroma with a hint of sweet malt behind it.

Taste - Sticky malt is there but primary taste is a blast of dank citrus and some resiny pine with a boozy throat hot finish.

Mouthfeel - Rests slightly bitter but mostly fades leaving a sticky malt coating. Boozy but expected for the ABV. Good drinkability. Medium to heavy body. Medium carbonation.

Overall - West Coast TIPA, this thing is an absolute monster and all around solid. Would recommend giving this beast a shot!

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

12 oz. bottle from 9/10/13 poured into a pint glass.

A: Appearance is a nice, bright vibrant clear yellow/orange. Starts with a thick, white, frothing head that dissipates to about a half a finger that lasts the entire drink.

S: Smell yields a strong caramel malt smell, along with strong grass and a tropical bouquet.

T: This is a very herbaceous, strong, fruity, hoppy, grassy IPA. Bright tropical flavors up front...pineapple, grapefruit, blood orange. Turns a bit grassy/piney partway through. Finishes just slightly bitter at the end. Strong caramel malt throughout, but never quite overpowers the hops.

M: Mouthfeel is pretty much as good as you can get. Medium body, slick, yet slightly creamy. Drinkability is good.

O: One of the best IPAs I've had in a long, long, long time. You can never go wrong with a fresh Green Flash double IPA. The Pacific Gem/Green Bullet hops yield an interesting hop profile that's different than most of the higher rated IPAs.

Definite must try.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Pours amber in color with a 1 finger frothy white head that has great retention. There is also a fair amount of white lacing.

Smell has big dry hop aromas. Tons of hops, dominated by spicy grassy notes but some hints of pineapple and lime. There is a decent biscuity malt backbone to help balance the huge hop presence.

Taste has huge amounts of grassy spicy hops forward with some very slight hints of lime. There is lots of bitterness but not to much in comparison to the aromas. Malt follows the nose with biscuit flavors and there is a bit of alcohol present especially as it warms.

Mouthfeel has medium to high carbonation high bitterness and huge amounts of oils. All this gives is a medium body and a sticky feel
