3.51/5  rDev -10.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from bottle into a snifter

Appearance – The beer pours a very lightly hazed and lightly reddish tinted deep amber color with a small white head. The head fades rather rapidly, leaving some foam islands on the surface of the beer with a light level of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma is heaviest of a very piney and grapefruit citrus smell. Along with these aromas are some tropical fruit aromas of mango, tangerine, and pineapple. Rounding all the aromas out is a little bit of heat, with a somewhat boozy aroma making its presence known.

Taste – The taste begins with a big grapefruit hop flavor right from the start. There is a rather strong breadiness present upfront mixed with a bit of a tangerine fruit sweetness. The tangerine fades more toward the middle being replaced by a little bit of caramel. Along with the caramel the grapefruit fades ever so slightly but is replaced and surpassed by other hop flavors. A rather potent and resinous pine flavor becomes the dominant hop flavor at the end of the taste. This pine is accompanied by a lighter earthy hop flavor and a moderately strong spicy and hot alcohol flavor, with the mix of flavors leaving a bready and resinous bitter and boozy flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is rather thick and chewy with a carbonation that is on the slightly lower side. The thick and chewy body really accentuated the resinous and boozy flavors of the brew well while the lower carbonation only furthered these two flavors along.

Overall – A rather resinous and boozy brew. If that is what you are looking for this is a fantastic choice but if looking for something easy drinking or balanced, then you may want to pass on it.

12oz bottle poured into a snifter.

Slightly hazy golden orange with 1 finger of white head that dissipates quickly.

Papaya, nectarine, tangerine, mango, bread and caramel.

Papaya rind, mango, tangerine pith and grapefruit zest. Even a bit of plantain? Good amount of resinous florals that lead into some notes of onion. Bready and biscuity malts with notes of crushed sugar cookies.

Medium-plus bodied, slick, sticky and oily.

Well balanced. The alcohol is hidden extremely well. Nice tropical and citrus notes but the onion-esque flavors throw it off for me.

Green Flash Green Bullet has a thick, off-white head, a hazy, orange appearance, some bubble streams, and good, moderate lacing left behind. The aroma is of strong citrus or hop oil, malts, bread, and sweetness. Taste is of those elements, with a sharp, but not overdone, bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy and slick, and Green Flash Green Bullet finishes semi-dry, refreshing, easy going, and not at all alcohilic, which is a surprise, with it being a 10% beer. Although I can't really see how this is different from their other standard IPAs, I guess it can be described as run-of-the-mill awesome. I rate it as being most excellent.

Poured a gorgeous clear amber with bubble trailing up the glass and a thin ring of white head. Very good looking IPA, classic in appearance. Scents of citrus pith, pineapple, grapefruit, tropical fruit, and pine. A classic West Coast IPA aroma. Taste is of bitter pine, grapefruit pith, a bit of a spicy hop flavor, strong levels of hop bitterness, though not Palate Wrecker level, with a nice sweet malt backbone. Bitter aftertaste. Very good, it's hop forward but not overwhelmingly so, served very well by the malt balance. Mouthfeel was medium bodied with moderate carbonation, about what I expect for a DIPA. Overall this was a great DIPA, it hit all the usual West Coast hop forward flavors, balanced with a bit of malt. I'd go back to it.

Finally found this in the Bay Area and I must say, while it's good, it's not great.
Not sure when it was bottled but best by date is early year.
Looks great! Perfect golden hue and thick foamy head...but not much else.
Not the flavor profile I was hoping for.
Aroma not what I was hoping for.
Mouthfeel is meh...good but not great.
All in all, it's good, but PLEASE give me Palete Wrecker stat!!!!

Another good brewery arrives in MN & the shelves get correspondingly more crowded. But I'm willing to bet Green Flash is one that's here to stay. Because they're stuff is good, & not too outrageously priced. Best by 3/10, so I'll bet this is about a month old. 12 oz. bottle poured into my oldest, most battered pint glass, just 'cause.

Pour is a clear, light orange with seriously amped carbonation. Nose is pretty weak for the cool-sounding "Triple IPA" category, a bit of earthy hops & pine. And had to grab a spade to detect that much.

Green Bullet slides down the throat like greased soap. Mouthfeel is what pops out: slick, oily as any RIS, with enough hop resins to make a St. Bernard cringe from across the room. Actually leaves behind a residue on the mouth & gums. The hop bomb implodes as the beer warms after nearly half an hour. Strong, smooth pine sap set against a rural backdrop of harsh bitterness, back-of-the-throat alcohol, & a contrasting malt sweetness that adds to the mayhem rather than holding it back. Finish is a liquid smile. 10.1%. No problem. I don't have to get up for another nine hours or so.

Not wild about this at first, but after an overly long warming period, this beer really cracked me upside the head, & the oil slick impression is one I have never experienced in a big IIIPA. Winner. Excellent beer. Happy to have y'all here!

12oz bottle poured into a snifter.

A: Pours a hazy golden amber with a bubbly off white head. Spots of lacing on the sides of the glass.

S: Very nice hop aroma on this one, a blend of citrus and earthiness. Bit of a fermented feel going on in the background with the malts.

T: Certainly a hop forward beer, real nice earthiness to it that almost creates a farmhouse like profile. Citrus from the hops and a bit of herbalness. Malts in the background are light which keeps the hops in the spotlight.

M: Medium to full body with low carbonation. For the amount of hops in this one it isnt overly sticky. Alcohol is pretty well hidden.

Overall I'm impressed with this one. Real strong and serious triple IPA that isnt laden with malt. Give this one a shot.

look: 4.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Served in a 10oz low ball tumbler on tap at Jake Melnick's in Chicago.

The beer pours a clean copper color, hues of orange and gold, clear complexion with a solid finger of white frothy head, good retention and lots of sticky lace, very pretty beer. The aroma is very aggressive, tons of tropical fruits, mango and pineapple before resinous pine, super sticky and earthy, with an almost fishy quality, takes over the beer. The pine does bring out some malt, clean and sweet, but not this is a hoppy nose. The flavors are right in line, oily hops, tropical fruit leads the way, bright and crisp, but pine is a little too dominating, bitter, sticky, sappy, earthy, almost like tree bark at times, with clean, crisp malt, lightly sweet, a little caramely, and a wash of alcohol hits the palate at the finish. The body is nice, a little oily, but the carbonation is perfect, lively yet super smooth, coats the mouth well, finishes easily with a creamy touch and just lightly dry.

Verdict: A big ass TIPA from Green Flash, but one of the better Triple IPAs I've tried. That being said, it's still too aggressive for my tastes, lacks refinement, but for an out and out hop bomb, it's a solid offering.

Every beer I’ve had that’s labeled as a “Triple IPA” has been too extreme to be palatable. I have faith in Green Flash, though –they brewed Palate Wrecker, and if that’s not a triple IPA, I don’t know what is.

Best by date is five months after the date of this tasting (03/10/2014).

A: Pours a reddish-gold with a wafer-thin layer of white cream on top. There’s tiny chunks of something floating all throughout the body – hop residuals?

S: The nose is absolutely sticky with resin and malt syrup: a hit of chili powder, grapefruit, and Tabasco on a slick base of pure honey. Booze and hoppy pine give it an edge like gin.

T: Hoppy, but not overwhelmingly so – there’s so much malt to cut through that the pounds of lupulin in this glass give only a slow burn. Malts cover the palate with a blanket of dense caramel and honey, interrupted by the occasional dryness of pine sap, astringent black tea, lemon-pepper, and, again, gin-like alcohol. Syrupy, tongue-smacking aftertaste of honey.

M: Thick and slick, making this tough to put down. Carbonation is minimal, so when this gets closer to room temperature, you have a glass of warm, oily malt.

O: Just too much malt; sweet in a way that makes it hard to drink. Not terrible flavor, though; just sweet.

12 oz bottle poured into a tulip
2013 batch

A- A brilliant hazy orange with a nice white head.

S- A pungent hop nose, not surprisngly. An absolute citrus bomb, some pine and cat piss as well.

T- A strong bitterness at first. A very bold and fresh hop presence. A big orange flavor and a slight grapefruit. A strong cat pee but in a good way. A bit of a pinecone flavor and a resinous herbal note. Not much going on here past the hops but thats ok by me.

M- Bitter but not undrinkable.. A sticky mouthfeel. A big beer but surprisingly drinkable.

O- I really dig this beer. I feel like this is what their Palate Wrecker should have been.

A: Pours a deep orange body with a bit of haze. Yields a beige colored head with sticky lacing and little retention.

S: Dank. Mega hop forward. Bready malts. Pine.

T: Follows the nose. Don't love the taste that the hops leave. Pine cones.

M: Creamy. Full body. Moderate carbonation.

O: Give me palate wrecker all day. Honestly, I was a bit disappointed. Dank and piney, but a bit one-dimensional and I wasn't a huge fan of the hop choice.

120z bottle poured into snifter. Cannot make out the best buy date but has the year 2014.

A-Ruby red color. Fingers width foam went quickly to a thin coating of the outer rim of my glass. Lacing is apparent quickly returns to glass.

S-A dank fruitiness of pineapple and mango mixed with hints of alcohol warmth and caramelized sugars.

T-At the beginning the hops are very juicy and with those citrus flavors coming in and some pine elements as well. Towards the back end the hop resins come through and the bitterness takes over and lingers. Alcohol is noticeable at the finish but not distracting all the other flavors.

M-Full bodied, sweet finishing 3x. Nice carbonation.

O-Good 3x ipa that does not drink like a 10.1% beer. Could have a couple of these and not realize the intoxication until I would stand up. Very good offering from Green Flash.

From: Piccadilly, Champaign, IL
Date: Best by 2014-03-12
Glass: New Belgium globe glass

Green Bullet is a hop and ethanol bomb, mostly just a mess in terms of overexpressive ethanol and underperforming hops, neither of which seem to be as complex or interesting as the brewery would like you to believe. Further, when the malt is present, it's cloyingly sweet. Regardless of this being $3.50 per single, this is not a beer I'd return to.

Pours a 1.5 cm head of off-white foam, made up of small to medium-sized bubbles giving a sponge-like appearance. Retention is average, about one minute, as it declines to a thin cap of lace remaining atop the body of the beer. Lacing is present, but minimal, a few small dots and lines cling to the sides of the glass. Body is a medium-dark copper orange color, with light bringing out pale orange hues. Carbonation is visible through the transparent body,

Aroma is certainly hoppy, like practically sticking your nose into a bag of non-European hop pellets. Scents of: mango, tangerine, with citrus (grapefruit and orange) and a surprisingly-present pale malt sweetness and less surprising spicy ethanol (particularly as the beer warms and the hops drift off). Good, but not particularly different from any other double IPA, and the ethanol obviousness here is a bit disappointing as well.

Flavor is less pleasant, a big mix of ethanol meets bitter hops and the occasional peek-through of a candy-like sweetness with a harshly unpleasant and herbal aftertaste. Front of palate finds strong hop bitterness with pine, intensely dry herbs, and concentrated grapefruit rind, the sweetness buried heavily behind the mess of hops. Mid-palate of continued hop bitterness and flavors (same pine, heavy grapefruit rind, and dry herbs) except now with spicy, white pepper-like ethanol and syrupy-sweet pale malt peeking through occasionally. Back of palate experiences continued strong hop bitterness and flavors (same as above), spicy ethanol, and a surprisingly detectable, though rather cloying, syrupy pale malt sweetness in the background. Aftertaste is of strong bitterness with unpleasantly lingering harsh dry herb and spicy ethanol qualities.

Beer is medium-heavy to heavy in body with carbonation of medium intensity, leading to a bit of fizziness before this settles to a smooth foamy feeling moving across the palate. Ethanol easily felt on the back of the throat and in the nostrils as warmth and burn, not exactly pleasing. Closes semi-dry, which is surprising as I would have expected something much drier with this many hops. Heavy stickiness remains on the lips and palate. Again, fairly average for the style, nothing surprising in a positive sense here.

Dark tan to orange in color, some chill haze but mostly clear, head and lace were ok.

Aroma and taste are plentifully endowed with lots of hops. Pine, earthiness, some grassy hops notes are all detected, with a somewhat resinous feel. there's a sweet malt backbone to offer some balance, but this one is heavily skewed towards the hoppy side of the force.

Body is pretty full for any IPA, but it's still quite enjoyable. The rather high alcohol isn't very noticeable. In fact, this is my third of a four pack, and I didn't realize it was 10.10% ABV until I clicked here to do the review. The alcohol is masked by the intense hoppiness.

It's not far off from what I expected from Green Flash on a bottle that said "triple india pale ale." Hop heads will like it. Englishmen who think an ESB is a strong tasting beer, and who think that American IPAs are over-hopped abominations probably won't. It's a matter of taste on this one, and the taste is all hop-head-heaven.

Appearance: Poured into a DFH snifter. Pours a mostly clear light orange with a frothy two finger head that slowly dissipates.

Aroma: Earthy, herbal-y, spicy hop notes, old bready malt notes, slightly stale character.

Taste: Not nearly as much hop bitterness or flavor as expected for a beer the claims to be a triple IPA. Some hop bitterness up front, then solid malt presence, then some booziness and that strange stale note.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied. Reasonably carbonated.

Overall: Disappointing. Not enough hop aroma or bitterness to balance out an off-putting booziness and somewhat boring malt presence. Gets better as it warms.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

The beer pours some creamy white head that dissipates quite quickly. The beer itself is clear orange amber.

A strong hop presence with a sweet malty backbone. The ops appear to be piney and grassy. The smell leans more towards the pine smell than the grassy, which is dominated by the pine smell.

Hop bomb. The hops have a strong resin taste as well as a floral one with a slight alcohol aftertaste. The taste also has a sweet malt backbone that does not balance as it keeps the hops from being too overwhelming.

Medium bodied but on the heavy side and smooth. Biting carbonation.

A pretty decent TIPA (DIPA) but there are much better ones that I'll choose before coming back to this one. The hop intensity is definitely noticeable in this one but more hops does not a great beer make.

A: Slightly hazy orange-yellow in color. Forms a moderate sized white head. Decent retention. Moderate lacing.

S: Aroma is surprisingly mild, but pleasant none-the-less. Floral notes mix with light citrus notes and a sugar-cookie background.

T: Taste is also surprisingly mild. Light pale malt backbone. Citrus, grapefruit, and citrus pith. Mild pine resin quality. Maybe some faint notes of tropical fruit. Finish is rather quick.

M: Medium bodied. Medium carbonation. Rather restrained bitterness. Alcoholic heat on the finish.

O: While I am an admitted hop-head and DIPA lover, I've never been much of a fan of the so-called Triple IPA category, though it is more so because the term simply doesn't mean anything than because I don't like over-hopped, highly alcoholic beers. Now, with that said, this beer is clearly nothing more than a DIPA, and a restrained one at that. The flavors are clean and pleasant, but aside from the alcohol, this beer really isn't packing much of a punch.

Bomber from Tipples to my tulip glass. Pours a dark gold almost bronze color, clear, with a nice white one finger head. Definite pine on the aroma, with some nice floral citrus aromatics. Dank for sure. Malt profile provides some additional sweet on the smell. Big bitter pine on this one, but with a nice sweetness from the malt bill. Bitter is up front and all the way down the gullet. Big and slick mouthfeel but plenty of carbonation. Pretty big beer here with the high ABV. Solid DIPA, though heavier than I wanted today.

A: Deep orange amber with a cream head. Good carbonation and lots of lacing on this one.

S: Quite a wallop! Can smell it from a couple of feet away! Lots of citrus, pine and sweet malt! Super pungent deep complex smell! Almost feels like it is wetting your nostrils!

T: Hop bomb! Getting blasted with a ton of pine hops up front, grapefruit, orange, lime, lemon, slight mint, tangerine, and almost no malt! Pure hop destruction!

M: Heavy bodied and almost chewy! Resinous and sticky! Fights its way down and coats the whole mouth! Alcohol is there but not over powering for 10.1%! This is a palate wrecker! Hops linger on the tongue long after each sip!

O: Really good IIIPA! Not very balanced but i feel like that was the point. I'm actually really impressed by how close they got to an unbalanced mess and came away with a good brew! People have been trying to compare it to RuinTen but it truly is it's own beast!

Poured into a 16 oz Tulip.

A - a dark coppery hazy like orange with a big frothy 3 finger head... and good head retention ...almost a full two minutes has gone by and its barley going anywhere. spotty circular lacing going around my glass as im drinking.

S - Smells of faint citrus notes with a big back bone of bubblegum which is pretty cool I guess. some sweet malt. getting a faint cat pee like aroma too....I wonder if the had a cluster of simcoe in here. some faint pine. just has a sweet, sugary aroma to it...really nice.

T - you kind of can tell there's a high abv right off the bat which isn't surprising and a lot more malt then the nose had, but the alcohol isn't overwhelming at all so don't let that comment scare you away... pretty hoppy and bitter...but SUPER mellow for a triple, holy crap.Its just a complex beer with a lot to it . faint citrus and pine but after the swallow the sweet malts really really balance this out. On the finish the alcohol kind of pinches you reminding you of the abv, but then its gone. pretty drinkable for a triple.

M- low carbonation, slightly creamy feel to it...bitter on the palate but mellowed by malt.

Overall, after drinking the green flash west coast IPA I thought I was in for a hop bomb with this and I was wrong... don't get me wrong its bitter and hoppy...but then it is so mellowed out by malt which was surprising. not what I expected from green flash but also not bad at all either...How to sum this up: its good and worth checking out for sure...get a single bottle...if your expecting a citrus bomb like the west coast IPA, don't go near this.

Ap- pours clear and light amber in color with an off white head about 1/2 inch with really good retention. Poured about 15 minutes ago and the head is still there, light and foamy.

Best before 03/10/14, so bottled 09/10/14. Tulip glass.

A: Pours a gradiated, somewhat clear golden color with a generous finger of creamy, yellow-tinted foamy head. Very good retention and a thick wall of lace.

S: Rich thick caramel, some floral/grassy and earthy notes, a little spice. Interesting.

T: Malt upfront (crystal, caramel) with some restrained piney and grassy hoppiness, and a little honey. Very smooth and well integrated flavors, with a mild smooth bitterness that is uncharacteristic of Green Flash (though perhaps inevitable given how much malt is in this TIPA). Mostly dry.

M: Medium-full body, actually less body than I was expecting given the style and ABV.

O: Nice, well put together IPA. It's drinkable enough, all things considered, though too high of an ABV to actually drink very much of it.
