2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
9/20/2013: Green Flash Green Bullet... H-O-L-Y--S-H-I-T! This beer is just so far over-the-top itís ridiculous and I donít necessarily mean that in a good way. After the Southern Tier Warlock blew, they put on a keg of this. I was happy to try it, especially since everybody else was so excited by the beer, but Iím not as enamored with it as them. So much so that I had a few samples just to make sure I wasnít missing anything. Iíll be honest, this beer is an illustration of when more is not necessarily better. They managed to cram so many hops into this beer that it smells like cheese - that pungenty aroma hops get when they oxidize. To me, no pine, citrus, or tropical fruits that I now see mentioned in the description that I would have really liked to have in the actual beer. I did get some apricot in the finish, but thatís about it besides the alcohol. Donít get me wrong, this beer has a substantial level of bitterness, but it isnít a bright or clean bitterness and it is just a confusing assault of flavors that arenít harmonious. To top it off, the alcohol just oozes out of the flavor. This beer is not to be taken lightly in any regard; itís a mouthful of malt, HOPS, and alochol. Itís dangerous and can definitely knock you down. Apparently Iím one of the few there (the only one, actually) that didnít really think that this beer was all that and a bag of chips. Guess I miss out, but no biggie since I have plenty of other beer to drink anyway! Draught sample(s) at Party Town in Florence, KY. Rating #90 for this beer.

Poured from a 22. Perfect IPA aroma. Flavor has a great hoppy bite with a sweet finish. Has a barnyard flavor to it too. Overall a pretty great and standard IPA offering.
