3.93/5 rDev +0.3%
Appearance: pale medium yellow with light orange hue. White cap adorns, sparse lace.
Aroma: citrus and floral hops, with some pale sweetness, and no dealt noticeable booze.
Taste: citrus and floral hoppiness with some biscuity malt sweetness, it's balanced, but not as pleasant as the aroma and some booze comes through more than the nose.
Mouthfeel: here's it's shining side. Great body, not syrupy thick like some big IPAs, lending a great drinkability given its heft.
Overall: it's really good. Being only slightly higher in alcohol than palate wrecker, in not seeing the "triple", but it's still great.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Surly Darkness chalice. Bottle says best by 03/10/14.
Appearance: Pours a bright copper golden orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. Solid two fingers of off white head with decent retention. Leaves a decent amount of lacing around the glass.
Smell: A big bright hop forward aroma with juicy hints of citrus, grass, and herbs. Upfront citrus hops with hints of grapefruit, orange peel, mango, tangerine, pineapple, apricot, and lemon. Earthy and floral hops with herbal hints of grass and dank pine resin. Sweet malt undertones with hints of caramel, grains, biscuit, cracker, and yeast. Very forward with the hops. A very nice West Coast aroma.
Taste: As big, juicy, and good as the smell is. Big juicy and ripe hop presence with upfront citrus notes of grapefruit, orange peel, mango, apricot, pineapple, tangerine, and lemon zest. Earthy and floral hop notes. Herbal notes of grassy hops and some dank and spicy pine resin. Solid backing of bready malt with some notes of sweet caramel, cracker, grains, biscuit, and yeast. Very juicy and nicely drying bitterness. A very good IPA taste.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Very juicy and nicely bitter and oily. Very drying. Alcohol is hidden well by the hops.
Overall: Another great imperial West Coast IPA. Good mix of citrus and grassy hops with a nice caramel malt undertone.

12oz bottle poured into a globe.
A: Golden-orange in color. Great clarity. Off-white head retains fairly well and drops a patchwork of spotty lacing.
S: Pulpy tropical fruits. Mango, starfruit, tangerine, maybe even pina colada. Leafy, slight herbal spice and tobacco. Doughy, honeyed malt base with hints of nougat and graham cracker.
T: Earthy, wet leaves, oily and herbal/spicy. Tropical tastes hover behind. Starfruit, pineapple, tangerine. Modest bitterness. Spike of spicy alcohol hits middle to end, but never gets harsh. Doughy, honeyed, and nougaty malt base. Dry herbs and tobacco. Distinct tropical esters. Trailing nougat and tropical hop notes in the finish.
M: Medium-thick body. Full and firm in the mouth. Pillowy, creamy, and very well rounded. Moderate carbonation. Slight alcohol warmth, but no bite.
O: There's a lot of great and exotic hop taste packed into this beer. Not as bitter as I was expecting, considering that this is being billed as a triple IPA, but the novelty and complexity of the hop profile really makes the beer. The presence of the silky smooth malt body is certainly noteworthy too, and it complements the hops wonderfully. The alcohol is felt, but this still drinks very well for a beer of 10.1% abv.

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!

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.
