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.

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.

On tap at Capitol Beer, Sacramento. Pours clear blonde with a nice off-white head and a citrus aroma. There is a sweet caramel malt flavor with a smoothly bitter finish. Very tasty.

3fourths (9150) - 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 thatís what double IPA often is. I picked this up in order to give Green Bullet hops another try but i definitely donít 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.

Draft at Hopgeist 2014. Pours a clear golden color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have toasted bready malts, earthy, herbal hops, some dank character, moderate bitterness. Good beer, donít know why I hadnít rated this though.

douglas88 (8465) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 4, 2016
Bottle. Pours a clear orange hue, very bright with a medium white head. A big sweet fruity resin nose. The aroma is just like a triple IPA. The flavor is more sugary tropical resin, mango, oranges, lemon zest. There is some bitterness, but mostly rich tropical sweetness. Quite good. The alcohol is well hidden in some ways despite being a really big beer with a lot of warmth (to style Iíd add).

Ibrew2or3 (8207) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 24, 2013
On tap at Flannyís 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 youíre in the mood for something tame and subtle try a different beer.

Bottle to snifter. Looks solid; a completely transparent burnt orange with foamy head somewhere between off-white and light beige. Smells solid; not Triple IPA hoppy though. Somewhat reserved citrus hops and sweet pale malt. Tastes like it smells with a good mouthfeel. Good, not great.
