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.

On tap at Mohawk Bend, pours a cloudy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of floral hops galore, grass and some biscuity malts. Flavour brings out loads of floral hops, like a meadow, lots of grass, and some biscuity malts. Good stuff, but overrated.

Some of the Green Flash kegs in Chicago have been stale and sweet tasting. This one is candied orange and stale bread.

Deep golden pour with a fast fading, thin white head. The aroma is pretty light - a bit of citrusy hoppiness and a bit of tropical fruit. Assertive bitterness wrapped in a malty sweet shell. The hops are fairly faded in this bottle (sadness) but there is a fairly bright piney character. The alcohol is pretty well hidden and they’ve done a nice job at keeping the malt sweetness down. Has a lingering herbal/grassy component. Damn - I wish I had a fresh bottle.

arminjewell (8582) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - NOV 9, 2013
Pour out of 375 mL bottle, clear orange pour with white head, not lacing but lasting, aroma brought notes of big tropical fruit, nice grapefruit, zesty lemon notes, hints of pineapple, slight biscuit and bread in there as well. Taste is a mix of big pineapple, pine, grass, into grapefruit and orange, sweet jammy notes into caramel, toffee, slight biscuit, hints of zest, finishing fairly bitter, slightly sweet.

3fourths (8555) - 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.

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 (8492) - 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.

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

DSG (8367) - 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.

DrSilverworm (8363) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 12, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2013 On tap. Totally clear orange golden color. Thin off-white head, with good retention, leaves good bits of lace. Big piney hop flavor, tropical fruit, spicy and caramel malts. Nice smooth lighter carbonation. Bigger body. Lightly dry finish, sort of sticky. Moderate bitter taste, light alcohol warmth in the finish, light somewhat spicy sweet taste. Solid big imperial IPA, but like a lot of "triple IPAs", this one has a pretty pronounced malt profile. A very big body, one to sip, not the most drinkable, but an interesting, unique hop profile to it. Worth trying, but I wouldn’t repeat it for the price.
