A full-bodied Triple IPA, Green Bullet combines New Zealand grown Pacific Gem and Green Bullet hops. Significant pine and citrus hoppiness hit the palate at first sip, accentuated by tropical notes of mango and pineapple, ending with a moderately aggressive, bitter finish.

Sjohnh (448) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2015
Pine element of the aroma is really prominent, with over-ripe fruits lurking behind. Malts come out in the flavour alongside orange and peach notes. Medium bodied and oily. Draak orange, small head. Alcohol is strong in the finish but not overpowering.

Benzai (10199) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JAN 15, 2015
Bottle [from Secret Santa 2014 edition thanks to beerandblues2] @ home. Clear orange golden color, full sized white to off-white head that lasts for a long time. Aroma is malts, hops, slightly sweetish floral. Taste malts, hops, resin and pine suddenly kick in which was what I was waiting for and it’s finished with good firm bitterness that absolutely suits the beer perfectly. Good firm bitter finish. Pretty good DIPA.

tmoreau (2935) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JAN 13, 2015
On tap at Lunar Brewing Co. and snifter served, showing a hazed, orangey gold color, with a presentable layer of off white/light tan head foam, and curtainy waves of lacing that reduced to a plethora of clingy spots. The nose was pronounced & expressive tangerine, tropical, and some lesser grapefruit & resiny notes, complemented by a fair dose of malt sweetness. The taste continued similarly, with the sweetness comingling well with a hefty citrus & rind-like hop bitterness that lingered strongly into the finish. Medium+ bodied, with decent carbonation, the alcohol was noticeable, and left a nice warming flush to the cheeks before making sure that every drop was gone. With so many Imperials out there, I was impressed with the "quaffability" of this one.

spacecube (1342) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2015
355ml bottle, pours golden brown, almost clear with just a light haze and a white head. Aroma is aggressive, piney hop and cara malts, peppery, sweet to start with a light bitterness balancing. Boozy, but it is a strong beer. Holds it all together well and very drinkable for the abv. Body is medum, texture oily, carbonation fairly lively.

Mindwarp (129) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 10, 2015
Pours an opaque orange/gold with a small white head. Aroma is citrus and a bit of pine. Taste of booze and pine and a nice tropical flavor hidden behind the pine and booze. Good bitterness. Overall a good beer that to me would be better with a less boozy taste.

kerenmk (3264) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 9, 2015
Bottle sample at a tasting at our place. Thanks DSG. Hazy amber, white film. Hoppy, mellow green aroma, bitter, slightly dry, green and leafy taste. Medium body, long, hoppy finish.

DSG (8448) - Tel Aviv, - JAN 8, 2015
Bottle shared at a tasting at kerenmk’s place. Hazy golden with an off-white head. Aroma of slightly stale fruity, "green" and piney hops and some malt. Sweetish flavor with malt, stale fruity and piney hops and a very bitter finish. OK, could be fresher. Also too heavy.

daleharshman (976) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 2, 2015
Bomber purchased at Beverage Warehouse in Los Angeles ($8.99). Pours a hazy gold-orange-amber hue with two fingers of off-white colored foam. AROMA of tropical fruit (creamy mango and pineapple), peaches and cream, fresh-cut grapefruit and tangerine, rainy pine forest, and some honey maltiness. FLAVOR of sappy pine, sharp grapefruit, some tropical fruit, spicy hops, significant caramel malts, and a bit of booze. Bitter finish with a tinge of sweetness. Despite the hint of booze, this actually goes down quite easily for 10.1% which could make this a bit on the dangerous side. Was hoping for more tropical notes from the Kiwi hops, but still a nice "triple" IPA and one that I look forward to seeing every year. (670, 936)

deaconmike (426) - Roswell, Georgia, USA - DEC 30, 2014
Poured from a bottle. Mostly clear golden amber with off-white head. Tropical fruit and bready malt in the aroma. Nice sharp hop bitterness followed by biscuity malts. Crisp, full body. Good triple IPA.

smaynard6000 (786) - Apopka, Florida, USA - DEC 30, 2014
12oz bottle. Pours a golden color with medium-sized off white head. Aroma is heavily citrus and tropical fruit. Piney and citrusy bitter hop notes with some dankness thrown in. Full bodied with lingering bitterness. Quite flavorful and good.
