Growler from Hop City, poured into a tulip glass.
A: Pours crystal clear with white head. Beautiful golden light color -- looks like cider. (5.0)
S: Delicate, floral aroma. Some sweetness, but not a malty sweetness. (5.0)
T: The hops hit you first, as you would expect at 100+ IBU. They're in-your face, but not overwhelming. After the first impression of hops, you quickly note the alcoholic warmth and the hint a fruit. It's rich, and while on the sweet side, balances well with the bitterness and heat. (5.0)
M: Thick and sweet. (4.0)
D: The most amazing thing about this beer is how drinkable it is at 10% and 100+ IBU. The Dogfish 120 min is a beer that you should try once, but I probably wouldn't buy again. Green Bullet on the other hand I could drink all night (actually I couldn't but I wish I could), and I will be buying it again. Highly recommended, I hope that this becomes a regular release. (5.0)
Edit: After reading some of the other reviews, if you're expecting an IPA, or even a DIPA, you'll be disappointed. This is a different beer altogether, and there's not much to compare it to. As I said above, the DFH 120 is a valid comparison, beyond that, this is closer to a lighter, hoppy barleywine than to an IPA.

Nice shiny penny copper color with a nice inch thick off white head. Light Brussels lacing. Strong aroma of vinous hops with a trace of light grains. The flavor is much more balanced with plenty of deeply pungent vegetal hops with a distinct sourdough bread grain taste. The mouth is fairly carbonated and sticky.

3.43/5 rDev -12.1%

Thin head but still with some scattered lace on a murky deep orange body with copper hues. Aroma of tart citrus, mostly it ages and some grapefruit, candy sugar and hint of earthy hops. Flavor follows with a somewhat medicinal tart orange and even some aspirin quality on a barely perceptible pale malt base. Hints of grapefruit and floral notes. Medium to thick body which coats the palate quite a bit with moderate to high carbonation. I have had better beers fromGF. The major issue was that the medicinal and aspirin quality got worse as I drank it and I couldn't get used to it. Maybe this keg was bad. Had this been a bottle it would have been a drain pour.

A - Body has a golden orange hue and a frothy eggshell head.
S - Light citrus notes and slightly sweet malts. Not a huge nose to this on my end as it seems rather muted.
T - Sugary grapefruit and bready malts with a bitter finish.
M - Medium carbonation, light body and a dry finish.
O - Definitely not the best IPA out of the Green Flash portfolio.
