Brewer: Green Flash Brewing
Style: Belgian IPA
San Diego is emphatically IPA country and Green Flash Brewing has done as much as any brewery in the region to cement that reputation. There’s not much they won’t hop the holy hell out of. Le Freak is its Belgian tripel-IPA hybrid and the mishmash makes way more sense than you’d think. Generous doses of Amarillo hops lend a tangerine and citrus character to the fruity and candy-like yeast character for this big, 9.2-percent beer.
