4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Alko Arkadia, Helsinki. Pours dark amber with a huge frothy head that stays long. Aroma has citrus fruits, floral notes and some yeasty spiciness with an earthy undertone - pretty much what you’d expect from a tripel. Taste, on the other hand, is pretty much what you’d expect from an American Double IPA. It combines sweet maltiness and fruitiness with hop bitterness and flavour, especially citrus. The finish is bitter and dryish with the flavour of grapefruit lingering around. Palate is medium to full bodied, sticky; flat carbonation. An interesting hybrid that’s definitely tilted more towards Imperial IPA than tripel. Delicious and complex beer!

In the quest to find the most epic IPA you will eventually find your way to Green Flash Le Freak and discover that you have reached the pinnacle (for now). This is the most creative modern evolution of the IPA and the the Belgian Tripel and the marriage is a thing of remarkable beauty and pleasure. And the flavors complement each other in a magical way. But it’s not for the ordinary beer lover. This is for the aficionados. It is completely unique-Nothing else like it!

Bottle to glass - Pours golden, minimal white head. Aroma is great, dark, funky apples, some cinnamon/clove/coriander spiciness, belgian yeast galore. Very inviting. Crisp on the tongue with a hint of pepper as it unloads with more spiciness, earthy fruits and hay. Pretty big.
