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.

DocLock (9504) - 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.

"Wow. Loved this one. Wasn’t sure how much I would. I love their West Coast IPA...in fat, more so than Palate Wrecker or the Imperial IPA. This one, though, super fresh as it was, packed the right amount of hop-popping aroma and flavor with a big malty sweet backbone without interfering with the fact that it’s an IPA. Barleywineish in body, though not too heavy. Pine and citrus on the nose and tongue followed up with a carmel malt and a blast of tropical fruit. Loved it...kept my nose in the bottle all night. One of the best IPA/IIPAs I’ve had this year."

Bottle. Slight haze in this golden yellow pour. White spotty head. Pine and pineapple aroma and taste. Would never guess double digit ABV. Nice beer.

JoeMcPhee (9259) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 22, 2013
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 (9237) - 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.

MartinT (9063) - 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.

DuffMan (9027) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 23, 2015
On tap at Beer Revolution, Calgary. Hazy medium golden body, creamy white head that retains nicely. Oily, piney hop profile, earthy and pungent. Oily mouthfeel, with somewhat restrained bitterness.

3fourths (9025) - 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.

phaleslu (9022) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 4, 2013
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.

KyotoLefty (8935) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 31, 2013
Draught at Faucets. Nice caramel, chocolate, citrus, grass nose. Bright amber. Nicely sweet flvor, good hops. Big and heavy. Very nice, though somehow GF hoppy beers are not making be excited much anymore.
