Blackboard at Asher shows this beer to be 7.2% abv.
This was one of the few IPA's that I've tasted that was simply a "non event." It's "ok," which is really not what you want to say about a beer.
Pours light yellow/gold with a short white head. Nose is herbaceous green. Lots of pine character in the nose and one of that fresh pineapple or richness that really characterizes a nice IPA.
Mouthfeel is medium thin with a light hop malt balance. A bit watery and without character for my taste.
Flavors were short, thin and lacking. Again, my opinion. There was an overall pine flavor without any brightness or other flavor character appeal. Single dimensional and dull in flavor and character overall.
This is not a bad beer. It is simply "nothing much" and a bit boring. Respectfully, I thought it tasted simple and watery. Asher does a nicer job with some of its other brews.

I've had this at the Asher tap room (this review) and at a beer fest in Boulder earlier this summer. This review comes after a couple of much stronger ales at Avery (water in between) so I may come back and revisit this.
It is a fine IPA with a dark amber color and decent head with good lacing.
The smell was ok but not a lot of hoppy nose or floral or citrus.
The taste comes up with some maltiness that combines with a
The mouthfeel is very good and overall
this is a very drinkable beer.

Found this at the Rackhouse pub in Denver. I guess Asher is new from Boulder. First time seeing and drinking them.
Pours a light amber, chestnut with some gold highlights. Fairly nice head, would like to see some more rockiness to it.
Floral heavy, hop aroma. Perfume-y. A good deal of light malt, too. Quite a refreshing smell. Attractive, yet perhaps not to style.
Rosewater flavor is what I taste, but that's not exactly it. Can't quite pin it down. Perfume and floral. Some pine mixes well with the light malt. Paired it with their Grilled Cheese sammich...good choice.
This has a bit of bite to it, and the floral dominates the malt. Not a bad beer, and quite drinkable.

A - Light amber, a little bit of a yellow-green hue to it. Thin head that leaves adequate lacing.
S - Lots of good hops here. Citrus, grapefruit and pine. Little to no malt detected. Just nice fresh IPA goodness.
T - Fresh hoppiness, balanced well with malt. Nice bitterness to it.
M - Very drinkable, and smooth. Just the right amount of carbonation.
O - My favorite beer from these guys. Always fresh, and consistent. I love supporting these guys. They are within walking distance of my family home so whenever I go home I have to stop by for a few pints.

Had this on tap at the Rackhouse Pub.
Arrives a pretty standard copper color that's a hair lighter than some, but still absolutely par for the style. There's a decent head on my draft version and it sticks around and laces pretty well (especially for a draft beer).
Hops up front, malt in the middle, lingering hops in the finish. It sounds a little cliche'd and honestly...it is. I certainly like it, but there's really not much that stands out about it. Malts are taking an appropriate supportive role to pine-y American hops.
Asher seems to have mastered keeping heat levels down. There's no booziness at all.
My glass was gone pretty quickly and I'd absolutely have another.
I suppose I have mixed feelings about this beer. It would get lost in a crowd of IPA's, but because of it's nature you're not losing anything either. I wouldn't seek it out, but if you're vegan or organic, perhaps this is a Godsend, though? This beer doesn't feel like it's missing anything, which is really good.
Either way - no matter what, the beer isn't bad, nor is it flawed. It just isn't memorable when compared to other IPA's in terms of flavor.

I've only had Asher's beers in their tasting room where they run a CO2-nitrous blend.
Appearance. Dense, white, foamy head. Medium-gold brew. The head doesn't really fall fast...it takes a bit. A very clear non-filtered beer. Good lacing till the last sip.
Smell. Not a whole lot of malt aroma makes it out passed the hops.. From the hops I get a little floral, a small amount of fruitiness... nothing really punchy. A fine lemon/lime aroma, and maybe a little hop leaf. It definately comes across as hoppy....just not west-coast grapefruit and pine hoppy.
Taste. Nothing stands out to dominate really. Nice malt flavor that gives way to bittering and hop flavor. It's a easy-drinking, balanced ale . If you want apricot, orange, or grapefruit flavors in this beer you'll need to stop by the grocery store. The hops, malt, and bittering are in balance and complimentary.
Mouthfeel. Carbonation amount is about right. Drinks like a medium bodied ale.
Drinkability. Interesting in how easily this beer drinks...ABV somewhere in the 6.5% range...IBUs somewhere in the 60s. This is a more balanced and slightly more noble American IPA than most IPAs I've had the last few years. Nice finish that leaves me ready for another sip. With some beers I start thinking about what which beer I want next....not so much with this one.
Green Bullet is a nice IPA that's true to form with the rest of the Asher beers... it's clean, balanced, and it's not "overdone!"...there are other breweries within 10-15 minutes of Asher serving up one-pint-circus-rides if thats what you're in the mood for.

on tap at the mercury café, maybe my new favorite spot in Denver, the food is fantastic. this is an impressive ipa for its combination of strength, drinkability, and pleasant bitterness. the pour isn't particularly impressive, glowing a brassy color with a minimal white head that fades out quickly. the smell is a good mix of light fruit notes on the front end, and a classic centennial hop style bitterness in the back half. the flavor starts with a more malt balance than the nose gives away, American two row, maybe some English 20 or 40 for color and body. the hops pick up slowly and build into an earthy bitter intensity that trumps any fruit notes. hopped like an ipa should be, with a drying finish. medium body and good alcohol kick. I could drink this all night despite its strength. carbonation was lacking slightly, but that was the case with all the beers we got, so maybe its a mercury issue not an asher issue. overall an excellent ipa, props for being organic too!

The rich copper-gold color of Asher's Green Bullet is not unlike other IPAs, nor is the first taste one that shakes your taste buds. This beer has to grow on you a bit. What I like most is that it is not over done. The flavors are subtle and complex with just the right amount of citrus that gives it a crisp and not too-dry finish. Too many beer makers today think that stronger flavors make better beer. I could not disagree more. I like this beer because it is well balanced with no one flavor out performing the other. Crisp, clean, slightly bitter, shallow malts with hints of lemon and pine. A very drinkable brew!

I had this on tap into a pint glass...The beer pours a super dark honey gold, good lacing and retention, a new sensation for me for an organic...The aroma is dead, I can't pull out anything... The taste is light hops, but nothing close to living up to the 120 ibu it claims...Feel is ok, ok to drink.
