This is close to a perfect beer for a hop-head like me. The tropical mango and pine sit on the palate ever so gently, building to a hot, hoppy finish. The '100+' IBU is much deserved on the finish, as this beer is generally only recommended for those like IPAs and then some. If I could have this beer every day, I would, I not for the 10.1% ABV. I would recommend many beers from Green Flash Brewing (more ratings pending.)

Pours a golden color, filtered. Nice head and lacing. Aroma is a funky, piney. Ok, enough of the bullshit.... This is a big, huge IPA. It's the Camaro ZL1 of beers.

Taste is pure hop deliciousness. The hop resins begin to burn the inside of your mouth almost immediately. Spicy is an understatement. Hop goodness per ounce is almost unbeatable with this one.

Keep in mind, this is a huge beer. If you are expecting an IPA, like Ranger or Rebel, you will be shocked. This is for the big boys. If you think Dogfish 90 is too big, don't buy this. But, if you think... has anyone actually OD'ed on IBUs, because I'm getting concerned... then this beer is for you.

For me, I love it.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Appearance - Pours 2 quick fingers of lite yellow eggshell foam, body is a gorgeous translucent orange amber, leaves a nice lace ring after each quaff.

Smell - Really nice subtly sweet tropical, sweet ruby red grapefruit, touches of pineapple and citrus, sweet melon and papaya, and some nice floral hops.

Taste - Much like the nose, there is a nice tropical complexity here that actually leans hard towards melon flavors of honeydew and cantaloupe, right behind this are some strong floral hop flavors that really compliment the melon, and at that same moment I absolutely get a peppery kick (mentioned by another reviewer) along with a fairly assertive hop bitterness that is very much like peach pits. No flavors of alcohol here whatsoever, there is a latent heat that accompanies the potent hop-resin finish.

Mouthfeel - Just over medium as there is a little bit of weight here, and the flavors are perfectly assertive and bold, Carb is on the lower side and extremely smooth, almost slick, with just a few bright edges at the back of the tongue. Dangerously drinkable for a bigger beer like this.

Overall - Really an excellent DIPA (okay, it's labeled a "triple ipa") that has a assertive flavors with nice complexity and balance. Really nice transition from tropical sweetness to floral to a nice resiny pucker, just begging the next quaff. A must try imho.

Underrated, Green Bullet is a very fine beer. Triple IPA is a bit of a misnomer as this is smack dab in DIPA country. Not nearly as sweet as some triple IPAs can be, it's perfectly balanced with citrus, tropical fruit and pine doing the waltz on your palate. Bitterness muted, this beer is extremely drinkable for the ABV. World class, yet approachable and simple IPA characteristics...

A total hop bomb....if that's what your looking for, get this. Good head, great golden color and minimal lacing. Citrus, melon and a bit of spice on the nose. Taste is the same with pepper being the spice. Mouthfeel is full with a bitter finish. Overall its a really big beer with a lot going for it....just not my cup of tea.

One of my favorites. It's a big IPA with big hops, but smooth and balanced.
