On tap at Hackneyís Printersí Row. Clear amber with thin white head. Aroma is pure candy - great! Taste is booze, resin, tropical and citrus fruits, with a bitter and boozy finish. Big thick body. Loved it.

BEENJAMIN (288) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 18, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2014 Smells of oregano, pineapple, hawaiian pizza, the garden on a warm spring day, and starburst. Full of body and lively character with a perfect finish that?s not too sweet and ends with a touch of alcohol. For sure very drinkable but not sure why itís called a triple cause it drinks like a double. None the less freaking delicious!

Pours a light rusty orange. Has a citrus and floral hop aroma. A carbonated beer with a smooth mix of citrus hops, malt, spices, and yeast with a strong bitter hop aftertaste.

This was on tap at the Tap Room, poured in a snifter This is not a hop bomb, itís really more like an American Barley Wine then an Imperial I.P.A. Itís a sipper for sure but the alcohol taste is well hidden. Another outstanding beer from Green flash!

Dark gold with large white head. Pine resin dominates the aroma. Malty, resinous, bitter and loads of alcohol. An excellent imperial IPA. Now I have to go scrape my tongue . . . .

22 oz bottle- Pours hazy golden orange with a two finger white head. Aroma is piney resinous hops, dank, but a little muted. The taste is the most dank beer I think I have ever had, intense pot resin, nice amount of bitterness, I donít think it is too bitter, balanced with a sweet malt base, citrusy tropical fruits, the finish has a fair amount of vegetal character, which doesnít bother me too much. Body is medium full and carbonation is medium. I can see how this will be overwhelming for some people, this is not a beer for everyone, but I actually really enjoyed it, full of character!

Very interesting beer, pours a clean bronze color with a small head. The aroma for me was difficult to pinpoint, although I certainly detected the tropical and fruity notes of the New Zealand hop varietal along with a small amount of pine and plenty of booze. The taste follows suit, I am quite familiar with some of the New Zealand hops, specifically the pacific gem which I am fond of, so while i sort of knew what to expect, my expectations were met and in many respects, superseded. Tropical and fruity notes certainly dominate, pineapple, mango, and guava hit you upfront. This is followed by a some lemon notes which compliment well. The malt presence is very light; a quality I personally like in an IPA, and this allows an aggressive, dry bitterness to show through. Although I think the 10.1% alcohol is fairly well hidden, it is certainly noticeable but not in a way that overpowers the great flavors that are harmoniously profiled. Very clean and crisp on the palate making it surprisingly drinkable for its strength. I found that this offering drew on some of qualities of their imperial IPA and to a slightly lesser extent, palate wrecker. I found it interesting to drink, and just like the imperial ipa, whilst difficult to judge first up, by the end I was intrigued and converted. All in all, this is an excellent IPA, and for me, the best green flash offering to date.

Draught. Pours a clear amber color with a moderate white head on it. Nose is nice and hoppy, with some great floral and piney elements with just a hint of some grapefruit. Feels very light. Slightly bitter to the taste, and quite smooth. Really enjoyable drink.

Cotta hops nose, with a complex taste that is a pleasant surprise. Bread, citrus, fruit, with an oily slightly bitter palate.

Very unique aroma with a rich smoky scent. Rich hop flavor but very earthy not your typical hop flavor. The hop taste stays in your mouth for a while.
