Beer of the week

Beer: Green Flash Green Bullet

Style: Imperial India pale ale

Alcohol: 10.1 percent by volume

Price: About $13 a four-pack of 12-ounce bottles at Total Wine & More

Story: Brewed exclusively with New Zealand-grown Green Bullet and Pacific Gem hops, Green Bullet is a “triple” IPA, meaning it is packed with bitter hops, sweet malts and alcohol. San Diego’s Green Flash first made the beer in 2011, and it’s back in national release through December. Green Bullet has a distinct tropical-fruit note from its New Zealand hops: flavors and aromas of pineapple, mango and lime that grow as the beer loses its chill.

Pairing: Big IPAs go well with spicy food or sweet dishes. I like to take the former route, pairing Green Bullet with kimchi buta – spicy Korean-style kimchi and sautéed pork – from Yakko-San in North Miami Beach.
