Cool find at Beer Revolution in Calgary, 12 oz. glass on tap. A light golden orange color with a finger of very creamy white head that leaves a sheet of lacing on the glass.

Aroma is sharp, pungent, but not harsh. Fresh fruits (apples, white grapes, peaches, pineapple, grapefruit) but less citrus than expected, menthol, cotton candy. Almost deceptive, hints at the power within but nothing over the top.

Palate is redolent with ripe grapefruit and tangerine, pineapple, white grapes, blackberry, tobacco, bubble gum, green banana like tannins, and nectarine with a subtly sweet butterscotch backbone. Massive alcohol flavor but this does not mask the intricacies of the hops. Impressed by the raw hop potency but nothing coarse or overdone. Refined strength but strength nonetheless. Menthol cough drop note is much stronger in the cleansing, bitter, slightly woody finish than it is up front, where fruits predominate.

Mouthfeel is prickly from the carbonation and hop resins. Slightly chalky. Makes the nose and sinus cavities tingle. This is a beast of a beer and the hop flavors are rather unique at times, going beyond the typical citrus and tropical elements although these are present and accounted for. Obviously some prior hop experience is a must in order to fully appreciate. Its a hot one from hops and booze perspectives. However, I could have enjoyed another, which must be testament to some degree of restraint from the fine folks at Green Flash.

I was very impressed by this one. I got it in a growler to take to a dinner party. It pours a golden color with a thin head. Aroma is citrusy and piny; the hops hit you right away. Wonderfully balanced taste. The strong hops will certainly satisfy the hops head ; a great dry bitter hops finish that leaves you wanting more. Yet, there is a sweet malt backbone that I like to balance out the hops. Great feel. Nice stinging carbonation, medium body and quite drinkable. I had like 3 of them and felt quite all right afterwards;)
