Mostly orange appearance, smallish white head on it, looks good. Hops were poppin' but not pungent. Plenty of tropical fruit aroma for sure.

Taste was hoppy, not heavy malt, avoided 'balance' thankfully. Mouthfeel was great, hid the alcohol, stayed light and dry despite 10% abv territory. Cool new hops, 12 oz bottles are were its at.

Really solid beer. Hazy orange, little head. Smell tells you what to expect, and the taste delivers. Lots of piney hops balanced with a heavy hit of citrus. Enough of a malt backbone to stand up to the intense hop flavor. Mouthfeel is thick, just short of chewy.

Another solid beer in the IPA family from Green Flash.

Had this on tap (awesomeness) at a local establishment on a relaxing Saturday happy hour. Beautiful cloudy color with not much head. Flavor and feel were exceptional for a TriPA loving the pine opening to the malt. If you get a chance try it.

Poured from a bomber into a snifter, the beer is a bright, vibrant, deep copper-orange coloring, opaque, with a filmy, clingy, light, off-white head. Aromas of berries, grapefruit, passion fruit, grassy highlights, dank pine pitch, subtle cotton candy, and subtle basil and cilantro spice highlights. Flavors are very spiced and green forward, heavy on pepper, basil, dried grass, and cedar. All of this spice rests heavily on top of a fruity sweet blend of berries, lemon zest, grapefruit, mango, apricot, and passion fruit. The heavy spicing and dry, crisp body lend to an almost astringent transition into the crisp, dry finish. The aftertaste is a bit out of balance, with the spices and vegetal characteristics overpowering. Interesting brew, with an interesting blending of new hops.

For a 10% abv, this stuck to my glass nicely. Great lacing all around. Green flash is becoming a go to for my IPA's, DIPA's and now, triple IPA's. And it's cheaper than Ballast Point.
