Poured from a 12oz. bottle.

A: Pours a cloudy golden honey color with a thick white head. Head lingers a bit and leaves some nice lacing.

S: Citrus, pine, biscuit, orange peel, red licorice, molasses, and some floral hops. Quite complex and inviting.

T: Citrus, orange peel, pineapple, grapefruit, nectarine, red licorice, biscuit, honey, and bitter pine hop finish.

M: Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, crisp and bitter yet oily on the finish.

O: There is a lot going on in this beer which is exactly what you would want and expect from a Triple IPA. I would recommend this brew to those of you seeking something more out of your IPA's.

Amber in color with a latent, frothy bone-white head. Aroma is slightly sweet with notes of biscuit and a bit of an acidic twinge. Body is creamy and malty up front but transitions to a prickly, somewhat spicy and almost herbal finish. A bit boozy with maybe hints of tropical fruit. A nice change of pace as it has a bit different flavor profile compared to many imperial/DIPAs but probably not a go-to.

Just drank this one back to back with Revolution 1znuff. The aroma on this isn't anything to write home about...bready malt, molasses, and rust (?). Medium/medium light mothfeel with no alcohol burn and good head and lacing. Taste is quite malty, pineapple and nectarines with grapefruit peel and honey. Finish is light with a good bitters/clove finish. Overall, the best beer I've had from Green Flash. I Would buy it again and share with friends. This beer does need something extra to make it special. Kafir lime or Mosaic to give it a little more nose appeal would make it would class.

Good beer, but too much dry hop - honey taste overpowered the beer.

L: Pours brilliant amber with a light copper tint under a 2” white foam collar that slowly dissipates to a clingy film.
S: Perfumy nose with fruit, citrusy, grain and some grass and hints of wine.
T: Big clean malt flavors, light fruit, a hint of wine, and alcohol are subservient to perfumy, spicy herbal hop flavors.
F: Just a shade above medium body, carbonation is medium to medium low, the alcohol is warming but you only notice it later.
O: Big hops and balanced by just enough malt and alcohol.

Pours a hazy deep amber with a light head. The smell of dried fruit soaked in brandy. The hops are up front and lack some balance with the alcohol and malt. Worth a try but not my first choice.
