Beer Wednesday – Green Bullet Triple IPA

Happy Beer Wednesday!

This week I’m quite pleased to be reviewing a beer by Green Flash, their triple  IPA.

This beer started with a nose that was almost all bitter, with little other flavors. Unfairly the first taste was different.

While the 10.1% ABV was obvious in the flavor, there was more to it than just an alcoholic bitterness. Thankful it had a citrus/floral hoppiness that was really rich.

I guess maybe it was the alcohol in it, but there is a sweetness at the finish that helps set off the slightly alcoholic burn of the beer. The finish was a little to far gone in the bitter flavor range for me, but it was still tasty.

Overall, I’m happy to give this strong IPA a 3/6 on my six-pack scale. It was good, but a little too bitter for me. How about you? Have you tried this, and of so, what did you think of it?

  1. I love the “six pack scale” — very original

  2. Too bitter for you… Wow, that must be a really potent beer. I haven’t had it myself. I’ve tried some Green Flash beers before and don’t recall ever really loving any of them.

    • Oh, don’t misunderstand, it wasn’t way too bitter. Maybe just a little bit. I infused it with pineapple using the Randall Jr. from Dogfish Head. That made it very, very good.
