4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Excited. Pour from bottle to teku. Hazy sunny-orange pour with fairly tight head. Nose is explosive pine and juiciness. Nearly as if exploring a thick coniferous wood blanketed by sweet blossoming flowers below. Intense prickle alongside ripe peach, mango, and pineapple. The flavor boasting, yet again, that miraculous pine, surrounded by fresh mint and herbs, a sticky tropical undertone carries it all. Alcohol? You think this hop assault wouldn’t be able to hide it? The deep northwest came to San Diego for this one. One of the better and more drinkable triples. Cheers, salud, slainte, prost. Enjoy!

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
I smell pine and tropical fruit and I taste more of the same: grapefruit, mango, pine and a bit of pineapple. Mouth-puckeringly bitter - in a damn good way with the booze well-hidden, only coming out to play after a few swallows. For a brewery known for being aggressive with its hops, this is surprisingly subtle. My kind of Triple IPA.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
355ml bottle from Vinmonopolet Vika, shared with djoeye. Clear golden body. Beige head some of it remaining. Dried fruity smell, some vapour of alcohol. Flavoured of almond, honey, pine and dried fruits. Heavy stuff with noticeable alcohol. Alright, far from great though (Tromsø 27.07.2015).

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Look; deep off white hue, clear dark golden beer.
Aroma; sourish hops, alco acid.
Taste; strong hops, bitter alco.
Ok, it’s strong, but overkills on my palate.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
September 27th, 2013 - Resinous. Powerfully resinous. Green Flash’s Green Bullet is is pushing the envelope on the San Diego hop trend, adding in all the power, flavor, and booze of an Imperial IPA. It’s strong, but single-minded. Resinous, hoppy, weedy and pungent. Like that stuff? This thing’s a treasure. Find it exhausting? Take a sampler and then move on. And save this for last, too. It’ll paint your tongue and dry before a day of tasting is done.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Lightly colored, a pale fawn hue. Filtered with such purity that, were you to fill the ocean with this stuff, you’d probably be able to see clear to the bottom. Trips to the beach would also be a lot more interesting. A rich, sticky aroma, so pungent it’s almost vinegary. Fresh-cut grass, orange blossom and black pepper quickly give way to fruitier notes like passion fruit. The flavor is deceptively sweet. Malt provides a subtle caramel note and simple syrup-style sugars, but most of the saccharine flavors seem to come from the hops, as pine and mint are replaced with tangerine, pineapple and Juicyfruit gum. Very pungent -- you can feel the heaviness of the alcohol and the hop oils. Medium-bodied, a little heavy with alcohol. You can feel the hop oils on the tongue. Mild carbonation. Too tasty and drinkable for its own good.

Bottle: Enjoyed this at a tasting. Pleasant hoppy aroma with sweeter hops in the flavor. Full body with a super bitter trailer.
