4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Poured brilliant golden with a sticky, well-retained white head. The aroma picked up fresh orange, pineapple, and grassy hoppage over fairly soft biscuit and honeyed malts.. peppery and assertive on the back of the nose. The flavor found a bitter blend of citrus and grassy hops paired with peppery alcohol throughout.. the base was simple and a touch on the sweet side, and it worked sufficiently.. spicy and a bit boozy on the long, belly-warming finish. Heavier-bodied and the alcohol amplified the bitterness too much in a few places on the palate.. overall a decent flow.. good beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Flanny’s in Tempe during the tap takeover. It pours with a clear copper body that supports a thin white head. The aroma is full up fir tree reminding me of the first time I tried Winter Yulesmith. Behind the big sap, pine cone and pine needle hop notes I get a modest amount of sweetness and a light sense of booze. The taste is full and big with robust levels of malt sweetened fir tree and pine sap hoppiness. The hops have loads of both flavor and bitterness. It then rolls toward a pleasing smooth fairly thick sweet malty body finish. Yummy relaxing sipper. Dig it! If you’re in the mood for something tame and subtle try a different beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at The Lackman, served in a snifter. Pours a clear, deep gold with a small white head that leaves streaks in the glass. Aroma of marijuana, very herbal and peppery - maybe it’s the ’Green Bullet’ name, but this has me thinking of straight hop pellets. Same in the flavor, which has onion, herbs, and chives. Medium-bodied, with a bitter, herbal mouthfeel that has balancing malts and a boozy finish. Moderate carbonation. Big, interesting double IPA. Better than indicated by the word of mouth I’ve heard recently.
