I did a blind review of Lagunita's Sucks, Long Trail Limbo, Victory Dirt Wolf, and Green Flash Green Bullet. These notes and ratings were recorded before I knew which beer I was drinking.

A - Pours a slightly hazy, medium-dark amber color, with one finger of frothy head. Heavy carbonation quickly rising to the surface.

S - sweet. Light citrus. Orange?

T - Not a strong flavor, with some sweetness. Decent bitter finish.

M - Medium body with excellent carbonation.

O - This isn't the most flavorful beer, but it is very easy to drink, and what flavor there is, is pleasant. Considering the ABV, it's very drinkable.

Served on tap at the Blind Tiger in New York City.

Pours a very hazy cloudy orange, with tints of red. Very large head. Very strong lacing, like tree rings, all the way down the glass.

Intense smell- stings the nostrils with pine and citrus zest. This is going to be one of the hoppiest beers I've ever had.

Tastes even more intense- an absolute hop blitz. So much pine needles, citrus peels, citrus zest. There is a very biting stinging alcohol burn. There is a lingering, persistent astringent bitterness that lingers throughout the session. Quite possibly the most bitter beer I've ever had. It's great, but I can't imagine having more than one of these bad boys. The beer is pretty successful because it is incredibly high alcohol, but stays pretty dry and doesn't become sickly boozy sweet. A very warming beer.

Medium bodied, strong carbonation.

An extreme beer if I ever saw one- but I loved it. Hop heads need to try this one- Green Bullet Hops pack in some intense flavor.
