The next instalment (for me at least) in George Wright’s single hopped beers, and it’s one of my favourite hops.
Green Bullet is presented beautifully here, big and bold, the smell of this light honey coloured beer is trestle tables covered in fresh rolling tobacco, orchard fruit and black pepper.
There’s a good malt body here, with caramel biscuits and a dab of honey, giving just enough background meatiness to not be overwhelmed by the hops.
The hops are super gloopy pine resin, red wood, peppercorns, a hint of mint, tobacco and an earthy, almost soily, date and prune mixture.
The finish is bitter and dry and crisp and lovely.
Yes, I love Green Bullet, and this beer shows it off well.
