first things first: proper pouring procedure needs to be observed in order to obtain the correct sampling of this kind of style. you need to get to the cloudy part with all the yeasty stuff. upon the heels of green flash’s "palate wrecker" i summarize the situation thus: if green flash brewing simply ends its production of "palate wrecker" and devotes the currently-displaced ingredients and efforts to this here offering instead, that would be a major win, the decline in diversity of offerings notwithstanding. that is what the love of wisdom dictates.

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!

2009 bottle, I’m told: Musty pear, apricot, and wheat malt, surprisingly bready for Green Flash. Hazy orange, medium yellow lacing head. Apple, shortbread, grapefruit flavor with hints of banana and pear as well. Lemon zest and apricot finish. Alcohol is well concealed. Fantastically complex, with ill defined transitions. Muddled, but oh so wonderfully delicious. Extremely unique. I swear I thought I rated this before, but I never remember anything tasting quite like this, and this is memorable. Maybe this is one of those beers that absolutely must be aged.

Pale amber with lasting foamy white lacy head; mmedicinal aroma that is soft sweet and spicy it remind me of lemon fresh Pledge Flava is yeasty with grainy and fruity notes fading into spicy hoppy bitterness; feels medium and fizzy; finishes dry and hoppy

Pours a slightly hazed apricott color w/ a tall creamy head. Good head retention and lacing. Aromas of bitter sweet citrus and tropical spice. Full nectar w/ superb carbonation for a soft, semi creamy texture. This brew has a high pulp thickness w/ a very strict aspirin bittering component that sticks like a rabid ground squirl on a pigs back. Flavors are topical and citrusy w/ a fresh squeezed mild sweetness that tries to tame this bitter beast. The finish is long and bitter sweet. It really leaves an impression on me.

Bronze, orange-ish tone, strong but not overwhelming, taste wins over kick. Belgian comes through, pour from a bottle to a glass, great head on each pour, drink this now!
