Petrucci914 (910) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 27, 2008
Pours a medium golden color with a medium creamy white head that fades thinly and leaves lots of streamy lacing. Aroma is like a hoppy saison - yeasty, spice, pine, pineapple. Taste is creamy, citrus, bitter hops.

thewolf (11131) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 27, 2008
Bottle, bought at Vinens Verden, Odense. Pours a great, clear golden with a giant, creamy, yellowish head. Fine, large bubbles in the liquid. Great duration on the head. Super aroma, lots of hops, pineapples, apples, yeast, pine. Pleasant mixture of the two styles. Lovely dry and very creamy mouthfeel. Flavour start super lovely sweet, good doughy malts. Then a hell of a lot of hops hit me, sweet and fruity. Grapefruit and pine. Lots of dryness, apples, pineapples, pine, apricot. Grass and hay with a great, dry finish. Wonderful beer!

Enniskillen (2029) - Salinas, California, USA - DEC 25, 2008
Lightly foggy gold, thick white head. Aroma is yeasty, nice hoppiness, alcohol, spices, orange peel. Taste is an upfront hoppiness, with alcohol, yeast, background hoppiness follows. Alcohol dominates a bit too much.

Hazy amber with medium white head. Sweet aroma with yeasty, fruity and hoppy notes. Sweet flavour with hoppy, yeasty and fruity notes. Bitter finish.

ghawener (1454) - San Salvador, EL SALVADOR - DEC 22, 2008
Bottle: Back to an IPA, strange mixture between an IPA and a belgian ale perfectly crafted. Fruity herbal, hoppy and slightly malty. Spicey and piney. Excellent.

DTM (798) - Winters, California, USA - DEC 22, 2008
Bottle shared with Timfoolery. This one didnt jump out at me. The hoppiness of the IPA took over the flavor of this beer and drowned out the sweetness of the belgian. Good brew, but dont love the blend of the two styles.

22oz bottle. pours hazed orage with foamy white head. aroma has citrus, pine, and grassy hop notes with a spicy and estery yeast character to it. flavors of citrus, caramel, grass, spicy, and esters. a nice smooth and subtly spicy finish. really tasty brew.

Christian (11027) - Odense, DENMARK - DEC 21, 2008
Cloudy orange with a lasting white head, leaving some lace. IPA seems to dominate the mix. Hop-based citrus and pine aroma, along with a little spice and herb (pepper and thyme) that might be Belgian yeast and sugar. The flavour is fruity and spicy and extremely bitter. Mango, orange and white pepper, most notably. I am a big fan of what Green Flash does with the Californian extreme hopping scheme, and this is no exception.

nuplastikk (4299) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 19, 2008
22oz bomber. Pours a cloudy orange tan color with a big foamy head. Has that aroma of American No Holds Barred Candi Sugar overkill. I suppose the same can be attitude has been used in the hopping. The collision of the two is quite excellent. Rich, sweet, sandy, sugary, hoppy, yeasty, this is a really complex beer. Bitter, piny, sweet, sticky aftertaste. Lots of yeast sediment at the bottom that only adds to the rich creaminess.
