3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 66cl. Clear golden with a frothy to creamy offwhite head. Fruity hop aromas with hints of pine, grass, Belgian yeast. Robust bodied with moderate carbonation. Rich, creamy and smooth, with a slight astringency. Delicious malty sweetness with a stinging hoppy bitter finish. Extremely drinkable and just delicious really.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
With a nose of sweet Belgian candy sugar and a rich orangy amber gliw Le Freak really appeals to the senses. Nice light graininess on the palate and a succulent spicy sweetness, there is a good structure and long development throught the bomber.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Appearance is golden amber, with a frothy beige head with somr lacing present. Nose of fruit and pine with underlying traces of grassy earth mixed with spicey Belgian yeasts. The palate is fruity with a clean lemongrass essence that helps pull in the earth and honey like finish. Medium body with a clean dry finish and lingering hops fitting the creative minds who imagined this hybrid.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Clear orange gold with a medium white head. Aroma of pepper, stone fruit, grass. Taste is spicy, black pepper, fruit, flowers, very complex. Reminds me of Epic Brainless IPA, but though I like the Epic, Green Flash just does it better in every way.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a 65 cl bomber generously shared by Ster of Amsterdam’s BeerTemple at her place. Apparently an intentional hybrid (hence the name as well, I suppose) of tripel and DIPA, with coarse, fairly thick, lacing, stable, egg-white head and deep amberish orange blonde colour, hazy with deposit. Rich and pleasant aroma of orange peel, dry cookies, pink grapefruit, mango, cantaloupe, biscuit, red apple, dry white wine. Sweetish but ’cleanly’ fruity onset, honeyish malt sweetness underneath, refreshing citrus peel, resiny and aromatic hoppy finish coming across as indeed very DIPA-like, with grapefruit, some pine and tropical flowers as well as a dash of warming alcohol. Lovely beer, whatever the style.

Bottle to tulip. Slight hazy orangish golden. Large foamy head, nice lacing. Very sweet nose of vanilla, orange, molasses, pine. Quite sweet, creamy citrus and sharp bitter hops. Lowish carbonation. Seems like a very decent DIPA.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 ml bottle. Amber orange color topped by a massive foamy beige head. Fragrant sweet malt aroma. Hints of yeast, honey, tangerine and floral hops. Interesting mashup of styles. Bittersweet caramel malt flavor upfront. Spicy, oily, resiny hops in midtaste. Firm and flavorful with intense hop bitterness and warming alcohol in finish. Quite tasty.
