Pours a deep goldish orange with a tiny white head. First impression of the nose is very Belgian, like Westmalle Tripel or Duvel Triple Hop. Good yeast character with some mango and pineapple present. Boozy on the nose as well. Alcohol stands out pretty clearly on the palate. Quite a lot of bitterness that is noticeable on the finish. A big, bold beer with a high ABV that doesn’t necessarily come together perfectly. jc1762 (1652) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 24, 2015
Thanks to willisread for sharing the bottle!
Poured into a taster showing translucent dark honey and amber tones with a thin ring of clean white foam.
The nose shows deep sweet nose close to a Belgian ale.
The palate is well carbonated and full bodied. Flavors of subtle malts and barely perceivable hints of mango and pineapple but a strong biting IPA bitterness that reaches its apex on the finish. A lot of finish on the linger but good hints of mango also. jamestulloch (4424) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 23, 2015
Bottle from Bottle Baron. Hazy golden body with a medium off-white head. Steady carbonation. Aroma of melon rind, lime chutney and peppery earth. Flavour of honey, menthol, alcohol burn and lime sweets. Medium body with an oily texture. Soft fizz. Intensely bitter, which I usually like, however I found this quite heavy going. fsbw21086 (481) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 11, 2015
Pretty aggressive. Boozy mouthfeel with pine and citrus hop flavor. Finished boozy and strong.

Bottle at Örebro Ölcafé. Hoppy smell with citrus and a malty backbone that made me think of cookies. Lots of hops in the taste, powerfull and long bitterness.

Bronze pour with white head. Hop and malty alcohol nose. Almost an alcohol punch to the face with malt finish. Its big and not for the beginner. zickbeer_ye (441) - Virginia, USA - OCT 7, 2015

Excellent imperial IPA euniceradio (563) - Worthington, Minnesota, USA - SEP 18, 2015
22 bomber to tulip. Pours clear deep gold, cream small head. Aroma of earth, citrus peel, pine, tar, old attic. Taste of same with lots of hop spice and bitter. Heavy on the booze. 10.1 abv. Pretty well balanced for a triple. matthewjk (1138) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 17, 2015
Another full-throttle imperial from Green Flash. I have to say it is superbly balanced, despite the hops turned up to 10. I’m enjoying it. Bomber. Small note: Their machine didn’t stamp the best by correctly. It is still legible way off axis, but everything counts! If you are going to provide the info, which is important, it needs to be in the designated space and easy to read.
