COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Tap at the brewery. Rating #14. Heavy duty stuff, lots of citrus (grapefruit) and big time bitterness. Brutal, but in a good way. (2586)

Strong Ale 2012. Orange pour with a white head. Really nice grapefruit, pine, and pineapple aroma. Some floral notes, a bit of bread sweetness, caramel, and tangerine. Really nice hop character to the flavor. Tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, and pine. A moderate bitterness to balance out the sweetness of the caramel and bread.

On tap. Clear orange-copper with a lasting disc of cream. Nose of citrus caramel and light wood and resin.Taste is big orange-grapefruit, some caramel and a finish of resin and light alcohol. Medium body is dry, with light carbonation, and has a nice touch of warmth.

Suttree (5073) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 7, 2012
Completely unbalanced, hoppy beer. It was awesome. Oh, sure, there was a bit of caramel malty flavors, but lots of grapefruit and pine. Nice heavy, viscous palate. On tap, Suttree’s Tavern

On cask at the brewery. Pours a hazy orange-amber color with thin to no head. Aroma was a huge amount of grapefruit, melon, and sweet candy citrus. Flavors were similarly juicy, with lots of melon, grapefruit, and bitter citrus. Definitely a good amour of bitterness, but somewhat softer and gentler than others of this style, which I appreciated. Full bodied mouthfeel, but little to no carbonation due to it being from a cask. Definitely excited to try this one again!

Boooohhhyaaahhh. This is what a 10.5% IIPA should be. WOW. Heady, full body, soft hoppiness moderate aggressive bitter finish. Extremely rounded, balanced. Alcohol well hidden. we gave this to the non-beer geeks and they were like, wow, that is strong, but wow that is really good. Given how strong this is, this deserves a lot more respect. Def not west coast in style. Must find more of this.

jonno (2275) - JAPAN - DEC 29, 2011
Wow. Mango and Pineapple waft heavily from this. A little sweet in the nose too. Huge sticky body but very pale yellow colour. Lots of caramel sweetness with a solid bitter ending, leaving strong traces of the tropical fruit. Hides 10% extremely well - drinks at about 7-8%. This is one DIPA the zima ladies would probably love. I did too - quite unique in a style that has got very samey. Well done GF and happy new year!

Draft at stone bistro. Slightly hazy gold pour, thin bubbly white head. Dank piney hops, grapefruit, nice hop profile, sweet caramel malt. Can’t really taste the alcohol, but the high sweetness kind of gives it away. Not too bitter. Overall decent.

gvmdw7 (187) - California, USA - DEC 6, 2011
Poured golden and it looks like a very light beer. Smelled of pine with some citrus. Tastes of strawberries and the bitterness hits you immediately. Suprisingly little alcohol aroma/burn, but it’s disguised behind the hoppiness.

On draft at PP strong ale fest. Aroma was grassy and fresh wort. Taste was crisp and Hoppy but not over the top. Nicely done.
