Crème Brûlée by Golden State Vapor
Barrel aged for 30 days in our custom made Oak whiskey barrels. A sophisticated, robust flavor; this isn't your average over the top sweet candy vape. When creating Brûlée, the goal was to closely replicate the bitter-sweet sensation of burnt sugar granules that is so easily identifiable when eating an authentic French Crème Brûlée. On the exhale there is an rich vanilla custard to round off this delicious blend.
Fruity Cereal (Rise and Shine) by Golden State Vapor
Rise and Shine No. 3 is our take on everyone's favorite fruity cereal. There are many flavor profiles like it but ours is definitely unique. A complex blend of over 8 flavors, Fruity Cereal packs a punch of flavor that will knock you back into a hazy state of nostalgia.
Bananas Foster by Golden State Vapor
Barrel aged for 30 days in our custom made Oak whiskey barrels. A delicious replication of the famous dessert Bananas Foster. A tantalizing authentic banana complimented by a brown sugar glaze made from brown sugar, spiced rum, cinnamon, and butter. This flavor is as close as it gets to the real deal, we have spent months developing this flavor to create the perfect blend and have finally nailed it!
Lemon Meringue Pie by Golden State Vapor
Barrel aged for 30 days in our custom made Oak whiskey barrels. Lemon Meringue Pie is the final release of our Brûlée line. It is the most accurate representation of a Lemon Meringue Pie that is available in the vape community. No corners cut, this flavor was designed with the some attention to detail as Bananas Foster and our Crème Brûlée, which have developed a cult like following since their release last year.

I picked this up since it was considered one of the top flavors. I put it in a brand new coil since I heard these were coil killers. I tried various wattages and I couldn't taste anything besides a very sweet cotton candy. No banana, no vanilla, no rum...just perhaps a brown sugar.
Very disappointed, perhaps I need to let is steep?

A very very very strong smell and taste of maple syrup pervade this juice. When I vape it, everything I'm around (and me) smell like syrup. That's not ideal, but the flavor itself is insanely good. A strong flavor of maple syrup on the inhale, combined with a perfectly tart and spicy apple mix on the exhale make it a delight. This juice is very sweet and you have to be into that to like this. I've never had to change cotton so quickly after vaping this, and the overall heaviness and sweet qualities make it so this isn't something I can go all day on. I like it, I keep some handy, but it's definitely a once-in-a-while sort of juice.

First Hex and now this. GSV has some pretty good ones.
I got this and Banana Fosters as samples when I picked up Hex. Apparently also just got these terminator coils which are the Double Mesh Coils for the Fireluke Mesh Pro, so I wanted to see if I could gunk them out with a delicious, but coil killer, gunker. I'll have to edit in the results when I finish this bottle.
Popping the cap of the bottle you are hit with a very pungent smell. Smells like a sugary, vanilla extract. Don't let that put you off though. Loaded up the deep amber juice and felt sorry for the new coils almost immediately. On the inhale, you are punched in the face by a densely rich caramelized sugar forefront with a light vanilla backing. Midway, the sugar tones off a bit and the vanilla comes in more with a nuanced custard base. Finishing up with the exhale, the flavor rounds off with the sweet creamy custard. The caramelized sugar pretty much stays with you well after the exhale, along with traces of vanilla custard, leaving me licking my lips expecting to have traces of sugar left. There's something about the authenticity of the flavors here too, it tastes all too natural. The barrel aging process also probably brings in more of a denser oaky mouthfeel, which is just awesome with this dessert vape. It really ties it all together and just makes this so enjoyable. Spot on Vanilla Crème Brûlée right here.
I played around with the wattage quite a bit until I found the sweet spot for me at around 70w, which is decently lower than most of the other dessert juices that seem to pop more at a higher power. Too high, and you might just get too much of the 'burnt' sugar taste and lose a lot of the other nuanced flavors this one has to offer. Cloud production was pretty good for a 70/30. Its a very dense vape, to the point where I'd struggle to hit a 3sec puff. Throat hit is also pronounced and enjoyable. I'd chalk that up to the potency of the caramelized sugar.
GSV is going to have to deal with me as a repeat customer, since so far they've been hitting it out of the park with the ones I've tried. They've turned me into actually really starting to enjoy dessert profiles. Can't wait to re-up.

This was my introduction to GSV and after tasting it I immediately ordered more plus a few other flavors. The banana flavor pops and the overall richness of this e liquid is not something I have experienced anywhere else yet in my purchases.

Very solid and cohesive juice. It does the milky and the 'fruity pebbles' part right. There's little lemon or sharpness to the vape, which lets me use it at higher wattages. The fruit portion is not muddled or weighed down by the milkiness of the vape at all. Each component tastes pretty distinct, which is something I look for in cereal vapes. I let my bottle steep for 7 months before trying it, and it was still quite potent. The unvaped liquid has an artificial smell (similar to The Milk by Teleos), but the actual taste doesn't come across that way. I prefer "Fruity Cereal" over Looper (which is just too darn sweet for me.).
I would recommend this one if you're into fruity pebbles type vapes. Good stuff!

These guys do two, and only two, fantastic juices--they take specialization very seriously and it shows! Bananas Foster is one of the very few 5 star rated juices that I have reviewed here on JuiceDB. If you haven't tried it, you should! Like, right now: stop reading this review and go order it. Anyway, they are a great company making great juice, responsive to the community, and are quick in getting their orders out and into their customer's hands. One of my favorite companies to deal with. It doesn't hurt that they sent me a full 30ml of Banana's Foster when I asked for just a small sampler on my first order of Creme Brulee.
First time ordering from GSV and ordered Banana Foster. The package was very secure and filled with big popcorn balls. The big 120mL bottle was wrapped in bubble wrap and everything was neatly inside the package. Will be testing the juice soon, but the overall experience was very smooth. The order took 2 days from Cali to Chicago, will be ordering again. Thanks GSV
I was impressed by the packaging. The glass bottle is wrapped in bubble wrap & then sealed plastic that has air covers it. Basically, you're not going to get a broken or leaking bottle.
Shipping was incredibly fast - just 3 days. Also, Golden State has amazing customer service.
Plus Brulee is just awesome!!!!
What a wonderful online shop, truly. i admittedly had some difficulties with the blue check, but after that was done, it was smooth sailing from there. The shipping takes sometime for me, but that's because i live on the east coast, on the other side of the country from their warehouse. I have had two orders from them so far, the first was great. I just had my second order come in, i despaired because i ordered two of the same juice, with different nic contents. Instead i only got one with an entirely different juice than the one i ordered. I called up their store and i was immediately assisted, no long wait times here. I spoke with the owner, Nicholas, and he was forthright and a pleasure to deal with. He told me that i could keep the juice that i ordered and he would send me a new one, with a larger size free of charge. I couldn't have been happier.
This is not only a store that produces quality juices, but has quality customer service to boot. Young they may still be, but they are business wise. They have my loyalty, and i see myself far in the future trusting my juice needs to them. Try them out, and you will not regret it!
