Green Bullet is brewed in the style of an American Imperial IPA. Available in 12 oz. 4 packs and on limited draft.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle to a tulip glass. Served above 53ยบ Fahrenheit.

(Appearance) Pours a soft foamy pastel white head over a honey orange body, very hazy with subtle carbonation. Retention is very good, lacing is light and stringy. 4

(Smell) Big hop aromas of grapefruit, citrus peel, lemon, apricot and tropical fruits alongside a solid toasted caramel syrup body. Potency is medium-high. 3.75

(Taste) Very assertive hop flavor with an intense bitterness, flavors of grapefruit rind, lemon peel and subtle tropical fruit tones are joined with peppery, piney and a subtle herbal character. Bitterness is very profound. Caramel body is nice and smooth with a subtle sweetness, plays a supporting role for the hop flavors. Perhaps the biggest downside of the flavor is the alcohol presence, which is quite forward in this beer. 3.75

(Mouthfeel) Texture is slick, peppery oily. Carbonation generates a modest crispness. Body is medium/high for the style, medium/high overall. Balance is bitter slightly over sweet. Alcohol presence is medium. There are no notable off characters. 3.75

(Overall) A clean DIPA with a lot of west coast hop flavor, a big bitterness and a solid malt backbone. Although it's becoming increasingly difficult to stand out as an American Double IPA against thousands of contenders and many more on the way, I find Green Bullet very enjoyable and worth a visit. 4
