COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Le Freak is a modern ale created by converging two beer styles, Belgian Trippel and American Imperial IPA. The use of two yeast strains further marries the styles and American hops give the beer its modern flare.

Draft. Pours hazy amber with a fizzy off white and lots of lacing. Tastes like strong nutty hops, dry grapefruit, sweet orange citrus, and faint caramel. Light body and medium carbonation. Smells like grapefruit, orange, spicy hops, and caramel.

phikus (77) - syracuse, New York, USA - NOV 15, 2014
Pine, candy, coriander all in the aroma. Taste of gumball pine and citrus. Very balanced for its complexity. Not a fan of the Belgian IPA but I had to try it cause its Green Flash.

MacBoost (1359) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - NOV 12, 2014
Bomber. Pours orange with a large white head. Aromas of sweaty balls and leafy hops. Taste is semi sweet and bitter. Flavors of Belgian yeast phenols coupled with west coast American hops. Kind of sticky. Pretty decent.

Delicious beer that has a nice light amber pour with a thick head. Hoppy and smooth, but not very alcoholic compared to the ABV.

sudomorph (697) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 5, 2014
On draft at B&B Burger & Beer Las Vegas. Pours a clear orange/amber with a head that coats the glass. Aroma is a mix of candy sugar, bubble gum, pine, and resin. Taste is balanced. Starts out with bubble gum and candy digress then moves to resin and pine, then ends with a mix of both for the aftertaste. Medium-full body with a medium carbonation. A bit resiny/syrupy in the mouth but still really drinkable. Overall an interesting beer. Bubble gum and resin. Yum!!

Tap. Pours a transparent golden with a layer of off white head. Aroma and taste of yeast and bread malts and some spice.

dresden (909) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - OCT 19, 2014
Cloudy orange with big white head. Pungent hops aims, citrus, and floral, aroma of Belgian yeast. Initially, this is another green flash hoppy one, but this really really changes as it warns and opens up. Belgian yeast takes a front seat and its pretty interesting, but not my favourite style.

Aroma: caramel, yeast, floral hops. Appearance: clear gold, small, creamy,white head. Taste: medium bitter. Palate: bitters intensify, getting dry, grain, caramel. Overall: OK Belgian Strong Ale, nice aroma, palate could be more complex. Pint at Green Flash Brewing Company, San Diego.

HonusWagner (1534) - Florida, USA - OCT 16, 2014
This beer is great for someone, but not me. Has that weird phenolic belgian strong ale quality with a citrus American hoppiness and bitterness that is just kinda offputting. Well made but not my kind of beer.

"this one attacks the belgian IPA style in a different way than Stone. Where Stone added a yeast strain to an IPA, this starts as a tripple (and from what i can tell a darn good one) and adds a generous amount of big juicy west coast hops. Pine, citrus, yeast, spices and a touch of malt on the nose. Dear Lord this beer is big. The aroma is a good mix of the belian & hoppy characteristics, leaning towards the big hops...til it warms, then its about 50-50. The flavor of this cloudy orange beer is a frontal assault on the palate. HUGE piney, citrus, and floral hops and a big belgian gumball sweet-spice presence as well. How they got that much flavor and still have a balanced beer, I dont know. The body is medium to full, with a very dry, mouth-puckering lingering finish. Overall, a very good beer, although I prefer the tamer (maybe more sophisticated Stone Cali-Belgique).
