3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Stoked to see a triple IPA from the Flash. Clear dark gold, lacy head, your standard IPA appearance. Aroma is grapefruit, rum cake, wet grass, and pine needles. Flavor is an aggressive slap of hop resin, orange concentrate and crystal malt. It transitions into cloyingly sweet malt base and a warming high alcohol finish. Really needs more work to round out the finish. I found this at my local gas station/craft brew shop for like $3.50. Damn worth the price, but I was hoping for more balance!
Bottled (backlog). Deep orangeish amber colour with a mediumsized white head. Aroma is floral, fruity, grassy and some resiny and wooden notes to it. Flavour is sweet malts, some honey, floral and fruity notes with a nice zesty and quite bitter finish. Guruhso (777) - Grindsted, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2016
Bottle. Hazy amber golden with white head. Heavy malty and heavy hoppy. Aroma of citrus, resin/wooden notes, floral, herbal, dried fruit - and toasted, caramel and hay. First try with NZ’s "Green-bullet" and "Pacific gem" hops, which seems spicy and piney. Starts light heavy sweet and finish heavy bitter. Quite alcoholic. Light body and oily texture. A nice one.

Mooie oranje kleur met een goede kraag. Ruikt fruitig, orange, honing. Smaakt fruitig, zoetig, honing, orange. Droge afdronk. Lekker. hopscotch (11170) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 15, 2016
Draft... Pours clear and amber with a large, frothy, white head. Good retention. The nose is crazy-spicy. Too spicy and nearly medicinal. The aroma also features light rations of American biscuits, crackers and overall graininess. Ultra full-bodied and velvety with stinging carbonation. The flavor is harshly bitter and tongue-numbing. The malt bill presents light notes of caramel and English biscuits. Wow - a bit excessive. Not flawed, but not my thing at all. Plumb7 (5) - Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUL 30, 2016 does not count
Very nice beer. Pushing heavier on the barley wine side rather than the hoppy IPA.

Near clear orange pour. Aroma is floral hops. Taste is floral, sweet and bitter finish. Blah blah blah, I hate the character count requirement. altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - JUL 10, 2016
[Jan 6 2016] On tap at Mussel Bar. Nice orange body with medium head. Nose is floral and hoppy. Taste sweet, fruity and bitter. Nice and warm finish. geologyguy (1629) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - JUL 6, 2016
Smell was good but tasted before I analysed so now I can’t smell....flowery and sweet on later smell...Taste is bitter but not too much...flowery hops up front and finish more citrusy... oldrtybastrd (5003) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 6, 2016
Pours a deep dark orangish amber color. Aromas of big hop action, sweet malts, and more hops. Flavor has some bready maltsy tastes with nice grapefruit and floral hop taste. weordie (1313) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2016
Pours copper with a big foamy head. A really strong malty aroma. A huge malty kick in the teeth! Amazing.
