I love this beer! Bright, crisp and clean, and very well balanced. Not a bit of funkiness as found in some other imperial IPAs (like Ska Decadent and Sneaky Pete). I can't say enough good things about Green Bullet and highly recommend it!

Great well rounded, nicely hopped Triple IPA. Oily, dank, high alcohol that goes down smooth. For me, it's a special time when this is available

First taste will grab you by the booboo! Could brew that you don't want to consume too fast.

A truly sought-after garnet, so to speak, among the desirous, raging, rowdy gaggle of cosmically, psychotically, astronomically hoppy, triple-IPA pursuers. Have you ever heard of a placed called New Zealand? Also, have you ever heard of a thing called colonialism? How about Imperialism? It makes me sick to capitalize, let alone type, at all, this word.

Drink this beer, report back, thanks for reading, and enjoy.

Wow, I am amazed more people don't feel the same way I do about this beer.

Appearance - Deep gold with medium carbonation.

Smell: Citrus and hops and then some. My mouth starts to water immediately.

Taste: I take a drink and can't tell it is 10.75 ABV smooth and delicious. Hops and citrus abound but again, you can't taste the ABV. It's not just about getting drunk easy on a drinkable 10+ ABV beer. Green Flash knows how to brew a delicious beer and this is definitely one of those. An instant gem I rank up there w/Russian River's Pliny the Elder, Firestone Walker's Double Jack, and Stone Ruination as one of my favorite IPAs. In fact, if I had to rank the beers listed above this one would come in first.

Mouthfeel - Sits on my tongue and teases me. "You know you want another sip". "Yes I do!" my brain and my taste buds say to each other.

Overall - One of the single best beers I have ever tasted.

One of the best beers I have tasted in a while. Up there with Founders Double Trouble and Lagunitas Sucks. Nice yellow straw color, very little head, viscous full mouth feel, in your face hops I am guessing simcoe or galaxy. Very satisfying and delicious . Going out tomorrow to buy more.
