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.

Bottle. Orange cloudy pour with nice two finger head with good lacing. Mild soapy aroma. Dry and spicy with herbal hop dominance. Slight onion/garlic summit like flavor. Smooth mouthfeel. Good beer, but the vegetal flavor was slightly off putting.

Classic example of a very dangerous beer. Very tasty & I had little reason to suspect the power. Great appearance. Heady aroma. Lip smackin taste. Excellent body. A pow beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Easy big tight foamy almost yellowish tinged white head. Slightly hazy deep golden colour. Deep pine nose. Sappy sticky full body with a slightly lower level of carbonation than I anticipated. Nicely aggressive and fine but I was anticipating something more unique.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Barwa: bursztynowa, początkowo klarowna. Piana biała, drobno pęcherzykowa, szybko opadająca, ale ładnie oblepiająca szkło.
aromat: wyśmienite nuty cytrusowe, żywe i kuszące. Wydawać by się mogło, że po chwili ulatują, ale wůwczas znowu dominują nad słodowością.
Smak: słodycz z natychmiastową chmielową kontrą i długa goryczką, ktůra początkowo nieco męczy. Pod koniec wyczuwalne jednak także akcenty słodowe. Alkohol nie atakuje.

clear yellow, smooth offwhite head.
mild but quite bitter hoppy aroma.
flavor is very bitter hoppy, slightly malty, kinda one-sided, an DIPA with just loads of all without much attention to detail. reminds me of some of the stronger rogue ipaís.

This has a great color to it and a very nice flavor early on. The finish is very smooth as well.

Bottle @ home. Aroma is malty caramel hop madness. Flavour is medium somewhat metallic bitterness, grassy, floral, fruity, metal malt in the finish. Old/stale? No date unfortunately.
