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.

GT2 (8176) - San Diego County, California, USA - SEP 27, 2013
651mL fresh bottle from La Bodega. Pours clear, deep orange copper. Large, yellow foam. Great retention and lace. Nose is softer than expected with a lot of butterscotch, toffee, brown sugar, sweet alcohol. Taste is juicy, thick butterscotch and toffee. Medium, dark warming alcohol. Much easier to drink than expected. Not really a chewy, dank hop bomb.

Served on draft at Beer Run. Pours a clear copper color with a large off-white head. Good head retention. Aroma of herbal, resin and tropical hop notes. The taste is herbal. resin, citrus hops with a nice malt backbone. Medium bodied. Quite nice.

Theydon_Bois (7935) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2013
Tap at the Ginger Man, NYC, 18/05/13. Nose is hops, caramel malt, citrus, bitter orange, hint of pine. Taste comprises hops, pine resin, caramel malt, sugars, bitter fruits, citrus. Full bodied with fine carbonation pitched at a level to keep this drinkable. OK DIPA - not too much depth to it or ’wow’ factor but delivers the goods.

3fourths (7861) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 29, 2013
Bottle. Lots of gum, tropical fruit / guava / mango, bell pepper, light solvent when warm, some dirty ethanol, resin and orange oil. I can see similarities to Nelson and other Kiwi hops with such a strong tutti-frutti bubble gum and floral tropical fruit aroma. I think the design was to have high acid hops cut the sugary malt, okay so it does that well, but that’s what double IPA often is. I picked this up in order to give Green Bullet hops another try but i definitely don’t think much of them. Better than Cites or Mosaic but nothing like Nelsons for me in this beer. The nice thing is that the body is soft, the carbonation low and creamy, just too sweet and too bitter.

BMan1113VR (7820) - Los Angeles, California, USA - OCT 7, 2013
Bottle. Pours with a clear, medium gold hued body with a small white head. Some particles. Great lace. Aromas are of pine, strong fruits, pomelo, tamarind, resin and dates. Mild malt (cereal) and ethanol sweetness. Flavors are slightly bitter, odd hop flavors: citrus, pine, raisin and bug spray with tamarind. Light grainy malt. Immediately warming. Dry finish, quite boozy, ethanol sweetness. Decent.

DocLock (7703) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 25, 2013
Bottles from Wegmans and Capone’s. Pours hazy dark straw toward gold with frothy off-white head. Nose is peppery hops, florals, mango and pineapple citrus. Tastes crisp, with mostly tropical fruity hops up front, some late peppery notes and a good balance.

MartinT (7677) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 13, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Muddled malts and tired hops ride this Barley-Wine like creature’s oily mouthfeel, leaving room for resinous hops, alcohol warmth and quiet sugars.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam covers the cloudy pale amber.
-This is certainly flavourful, but the entire flavour profile felt past its prime even though the brew was still within its ‘best by’ date.
-Some of the hops provide citrusy fruitiness, but it is far from being of a bright and juicy nature .
-This still serves its purpose as an evening sipper.

Bottle.

Dogbrick (7585) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 17, 2013
On draught at Petrol Station. The beer is a dark orange-gold color with a medium white head that diminishes gradually. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. The aroma is fruity with hops and pine notes. Full, chewy body with flavors of piney hops, tropical fruit and toasted malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

2013-01-29. Big hoppy aroma, lightly leafy and mild citrus and tropical fruit notes, lightly alcoholic. 7+ Lightly hazy dark orange body with a modest off white head. 3+ Flavour is fairly bitter, with a good amount of hops, notes of resin and muted fruit. 7+ Medium bodied palate, lots of carbonation. Enjoyable. Bottle shared by mds

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 6, 2013
On tap at Frisco Taphouse: Pours a clear bright golden with a small, clingy-lacing white head. Has a big fresh juicy hop nose with sweet pale malty undertones. Body starts with good fullness and malty sweetness supporting the onslaught of hop flavor and bitterness before a drier, slightly warming bittersweet finish. Dangerously drinkable and loaded with hops.
