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.

Dark gold with large white head. Pine resin dominates the aroma. Malty, resinous, bitter and loads of alcohol. An excellent imperial IPA. Now I have to go scrape my tongue . . . .

22 oz bottle- Pours hazy golden orange with a two finger white head. Aroma is piney resinous hops, dank, but a little muted. The taste is the most dank beer I think I have ever had, intense pot resin, nice amount of bitterness, I don’t think it is too bitter, balanced with a sweet malt base, citrusy tropical fruits, the finish has a fair amount of vegetal character, which doesn’t bother me too much. Body is medium full and carbonation is medium. I can see how this will be overwhelming for some people, this is not a beer for everyone, but I actually really enjoyed it, full of character!

Very interesting beer, pours a clean bronze color with a small head. The aroma for me was difficult to pinpoint, although I certainly detected the tropical and fruity notes of the New Zealand hop varietal along with a small amount of pine and plenty of booze. The taste follows suit, I am quite familiar with some of the New Zealand hops, specifically the pacific gem which I am fond of, so while i sort of knew what to expect, my expectations were met and in many respects, superseded. Tropical and fruity notes certainly dominate, pineapple, mango, and guava hit you upfront. This is followed by a some lemon notes which compliment well. The malt presence is very light; a quality I personally like in an IPA, and this allows an aggressive, dry bitterness to show through. Although I think the 10.1% alcohol is fairly well hidden, it is certainly noticeable but not in a way that overpowers the great flavors that are harmoniously profiled. Very clean and crisp on the palate making it surprisingly drinkable for its strength. I found that this offering drew on some of qualities of their imperial IPA and to a slightly lesser extent, palate wrecker. I found it interesting to drink, and just like the imperial ipa, whilst difficult to judge first up, by the end I was intrigued and converted. All in all, this is an excellent IPA, and for me, the best green flash offering to date.

Draught. Pours a clear amber color with a moderate white head on it. Nose is nice and hoppy, with some great floral and piney elements with just a hint of some grapefruit. Feels very light. Slightly bitter to the taste, and quite smooth. Really enjoyable drink.

Cotta hops nose, with a complex taste that is a pleasant surprise. Bread, citrus, fruit, with an oily slightly bitter palate.

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2014 Very unique aroma with a rich fruity scent. Rich hop flavor but very earthy not your typical hop flavor. The hop taste stays in your mouth for a while. Very bitter finish but very fruity throughout

The Green Bullet pours a clear tangerine with a beige head that lasts a bit and leaves decent lacing. The aroma is pine and citrus hops along with more pine and citrus hops. The flavor is pine and citrus hops all over the place. Hops dominate the beer from start to finish. Overall this is a delightful brew. Definitely work trying.

Hoppy creamy pine aroma. Pale golden color with mid cream white head. Super hoppy but incredibly balanced and smooth finish. Awesome.

Quite impressive! Interesting (new for me) hop aroma and flavour bomb. Intensity is high but not overpowered. Pleasant tropical fruitiness balanced with decent herbalness. Very decent malt background, piney. Double digit ABV? U kidding me? Dangerously drinkable and enjoyable. Perfect balance in aroma and flavour

UPDATED: NOV 1, 2014 Flaska från privatimport. Grumlig bärnstensfärgad vätska med gräddigt skum. Doft av ananas och tallkåda. Humlearomen träffar luktorganet som en käftsmäll. Lite störande alkoholdoft hastar förbi men tonar bort när temperaturen stiger i vätskan. I bakgrunden ligger en antydan av lakrits. Torr, stram och framför allt besk smak. Den har en nedtonad men tydlig maltkropp. Söker man balans mellan beskt och sött har du kommit fel. Denna öl är en hyllning till massiv, rakt i skrevet-beska.
