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.

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.

DrSilverworm (6275) - 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.

mcberko (6259) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 15, 2013
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.

5000 (6239) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 4, 2013
Draught @ Brouwer’s Café:   Big piney and resiny nose, slight cat urine too.   Bright amber in color, thin foamy white head, light lacing, lighter carbonation.   Strong pithy bitterness up front, very light tropical fruit, thankfully no cat urine.   Hard to believe this is 10.1% as it hides it very well.   This is a bit hopsided as it dominates over the malts.   Not overbalanced at all, but its a hop head beer for sure.   Very bright.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Great beer, a hop bruiser, but holds the alcohol in very well.   A hopheads dream beer I must say!   Clean, long bitter finish.

lusikka (6176) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 26, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2013 355 ml bottle @ Malja, Kuopio. Pours an amber colour and a white foamy head. Aroma is very strong on herbs and citrus. Flavour of rich citrusy hops, herbs, biscuit, gooseberries, alcohol and weed. Medium bodied, thick mouthfeel and a long, lingering bitter and heavy finish. Nice hoppy fumes. Great stuff! 8-4-9-3-15 3.9

355 ml bottle @ Malja, Kuopio. Again.
Aroma is a bit stronger than last time.Stronger raw grassy notes and hop oils. Flavour is as good, very raw bitterness and balanced with the malts. Mouthfeel is slightly harsh. Lingering bitter and warming finish which just keeps going. Better than last time. 9-4-9-3-16 4.1

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.

355 ml bottle @ Kaisla.
Pours hazy orange color with a small head. Aroma of pine, resin and hops. Flavor of caramel malts, some resinous hops and sweet fruits. Surprisingly lot of booze on this one, doesn’t come through too much though.

Draft at sb. Pours a slightly hazy medium amber with golden brown edges and a loose white head. Big bright fruity mango and pineapple nose with grapefruit showing. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toasty caramel with tons of pithy hop fruit notes on the mid palate. Long dry resin finish. Very nice.

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.
