Clear golden appearance with a thin white head. Aroma is slightly hay like with a nice hoppy nose. Flavor is hoppy with a nice bready yeast flavor. Excellent marriage of the two styles, really enjoyed this beer.

In the quest to find the most epic IPA you will eventually find your way to Green Flash Le Freak and discover that you have reached the pinnacle (for now). This is the most creative modern evolution of the IPA and the the Belgian Tripel and the marriage is a thing of remarkable beauty and pleasure. And the flavors complement each other in a magical way. But it’s not for the ordinary beer lover. This is for the aficionados. It is completely unique-Nothing else like it!

Andrew196 (1441) - Katy, Texas, USA - AUG 15, 2016
Bottle to glass - Pours golden, minimal white head. Aroma is great, dark, funky apples, some cinnamon/clove/coriander spiciness, belgian yeast galore. Very inviting. Crisp on the tongue with a hint of pepper as it unloads with more spiciness, earthy fruits and hay. Pretty big.

22 oz bottle. Pours hazy orange with tall, long lasting, fluffy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of citrusy hops, raspberries, plums, yeast and caramel malt. Body is full and crisp. Citrusy, herbal hops nicely balanced on the palate by caramel malt and misc. fruit. Finish is long, dry from alcohol. Delicious brew.
