Pours a hazy rich peach color with hues of deep red-orange. Beautiful autumnal look with a quietly fluffy bone-colored topper of froth. Exquisite.
Hoppy aromas, all of grassy and floral and pithy, with dank and resinous undertones. Candied fruits, chiba, tropical fruit, peach, and grassy orange. Has some caramelly malt base that takes its diminutive position in the backseat. Light grapefruit insinuates C-hops, like Cascade and Centennial, but there's familiar odors of floral lemon and Simcoe pine skank. What a plethora of aromas!
Big time hoppiness without all the crushing bitterness. Tempered by steeped maltiness, true humulus flavors shine in swatches of wildflower tea, lemon rind, grapefruit, starfruit, kiwi, orange, sandalwood, hemp, peach, and bitter melon. There are hints of pine and there's a lovely herbaceousness that pairs well with a lime-y citrus note in the middle, but this is quite fascinating in what the taste has to offer. Mostly dry, but still beating with some encouragement from caramel malt. The alcohol isn't dominating, like in a Hopslam or Devil Dancer, and the smoothly bold representation of it supports a good mouthfeel of a cautiously potent drink. The body is never syrupy and dangerously medium in its pace and swallow. Carbonation provides a longer, more stable, ride-out with intoxication creeping in closer than you'd might expect.
An uncanny hop bomb with medium (sturdy) bitterness and a latent spicy bite. At 10.1%, Green Bullet is nothing to play around with; and, with the hop complexity and drinkability on its side, it's a damn fine Triple IPA to have around on cooler and lonelier nights. A surefire sipper. A dream ale. Delicious stuff from the hop masters over at Green Flash.
