528. Green Flash Brewing Green Bullet
Green Flash makes some interesting beers and Green Bullet certainly fits in with their many other IPAs. This one clocks in just above 10% ABV and is available in 4-packs of 12 ounce bottles or 22 ounce bombers. I purchased a single 12 ounce bottle and while I enjoyed the beer I’m not sure I would have wanted 4 of them.
Appearance is a very clear orange with a thin off white head. Aroma was not as big as I expected with plenty of pine and some citrus but also a lot of malt character coming through. Taste is fairly boozy with a big malt base and tons of pine. Leaves a film in your mouth as most really big IPAs do.
Overall this is not a bad beer but the hops are a bit one dimensional for me.
Alcohol Content: 10.1% ABV
IBU (Bitterness): a lot
