Pours a hazy, golden orange color with a tight, white head that leaves a nice sheet of lacing.

Smells of floral and fruity hops.

Tastes of pretty big hop notes accompanied by a strong malt backbone. Hops lead off with grapefruit, pine, and some tropical fruits. Not particularly bitter. Malts come in with some caramel and sugar sweetness. Pretty balanced overall.

Mouthfeel is full with a smooth amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is a good DIPA with plenty going for it.

On-tap 1/12/2014 at Doherty’s East Ave Irish Pub, in Pawtucket, RI served in a tulip glass.

A: The beer is a deep amber color, with a large off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains floral hops, fruity citrus and caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out with sweet flavors of citrus and caramel. Then a strong hops bitterness comes in along with a strong booziness. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy creating a decent balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Crisp but not very smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: A little tasty, goes down ok, not too filling, very strong kick, decent representation of style, this beer is an example of bigger not always being better as a I much prefer some of Green Flash’s other “weaker” IPA’s to this one.

As a Triple it was middle of the road for me. It reminded me a lot of Ommegang Brewery's Three Philosophers. So if you like that beer, you will most likely enjoy this one. I'm learning I'm just not a big fan of the triple in the first place so perhaps my rating is a little unjust, but for the price I paid, I was unsatisfied.

The beer comes in a glowing deep amber orange color with a fluffy 1 finger head. A really nice looking beer.

The aroma is very West Coast with tons of orange, grapefruit, some pine. A bit of cat piss in there along with tons of caramel malt breadiness. As it warms up, definitely getting that onion and garlic hop in there.

The front is tons of grapefruit and a bit of pine surrounded with tons of toasty grainy breadiness that gives the beer body and pushes it towards recognizing the beer is 10.1%. After the initial hit, there’s a bit of a tropical note of mango, nectarine, and apricot.

The finish is hugely drying. Lots of pine, lots of grapefruit pith, a bit of white wine.

The alcohol is really hidden on this one. Possibly a hint of booze on the back, but there’s tons of bitterness to hide it. It doesn’t taste this beer at all. It definitely warms going down. Definitely a good job at doing the triple IPA style. The highlight of this beer is the bitterness for the hopheads and how well this beer hides its size by being light and not too cloying.
