4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
02/02/2010. 650ml bottle, courtesy of TheGrandmaster. Resinous IPA with a bigger whack of bitterness and mid-kettle hop flavour than the average new world IPA... I like that. Then there is the beautiful aromatic Belgian character (Ardennes?) that adds something special and spicy without ever overwhelming the American heart of the beer. Well attenutated. Wonderfully subtle like a the best Tripels without losing any of its required in-your-face aggression of IIPA. The Mohammed Ali of beer. This kicks the lily white butts of the "Belgian IPAs" I’ve tried before. Deliciously (and dangerously) drinkable. How can this be 9.2%???!!!! That is freakin’ wrong. Great job Green Flash.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at bōl in Vail. Pour is hazy orange with a frothy white head and great lacing. Yeasty, light banana, some citrus, peppery, herbal, some coriander and basil in the aroma. Taste is musty, belgian yeast, herbal, some biscuit, straw, white pepper, and herbs with a slightly spicy finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Decent, but it seems muddled. Is it a belgian DIPA, a Tripel, or and IPA?

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Hop Hideout, Sheffield. Hazy, pale amber. Thin, dense, lasting, sticky, white head. Bready, toasty, Belgian yeast shizzle, first and foremost. Lemon hop. Peachy hop. Some stone fruit in there, too. Taste is fruit salad sweet. Turns yeasty dry. Pithy, oily bitter at the end. Juicy, oily, easy drinking palate. Finishes long, juicy, fusty, pithy bitter. Lip coating sweetness lingers. Daft easy to drink. Fusty, fruity, and lovely.

From Tap. dark golden with an airy white head. nose: malty, bacon, yeast, citrus, hoppy, sugar, vegetables. not sure what to make of this. taste: malt, yeast, hops, alcohol strength, bit funky. MF: peppery in the finish, due to alcohol, complex finish. full body. bitter sweet. sweetness of a triple, bitterness of an IPA. nice brew, bit strange. definitiely not the next IPA in town. this beer needs some time to get on to you ...

Awesome initial aroma and the first sips were great! Then the Belgian yeast took over and the "imperial" IPA aspect took a backseat to the Belgian flavor. Those damn Belgian's (yeast)
