brewskis (123) - Saint John, Indiana, USA - AUG 16, 2013
Pours pitch black with a finger length mocha colored head that went away fairly slowly and left a thin ring of lacing. Nice balance in the aroma for a black ipa, but not overpowering at all. Get floral and faint pine notes from the hops, while also getting lots of roasted malts, licorice, and some dark chocolate notes. Nice balance in the taste as well. Starts with floral notes, some orange, pine. Then a burst of roasted malts come through and mix with the hop flavors. Start to get dark chocolate notes as well. The finish is a great balance of hoppy and roasty flavors. More of the floral, orange, and pine along with roasted malts and creamy dark chocolate. Get some ashy/smokey flavors as well. Do get that belgian flavor from the malts, but it is minimal and adds to the complexity of the beer. High medium body with a really nice creamy mouthfeel. Somewhat clean on the finish too: no resinous hop oils left behind. I thought this was an outstanding example of what a black ipa should be. Definitely hoppy, but incorporated with a hefty dose of roasted, dark malts nicely. Greenbush continues to impress.

Dark brown pour, cream colored head. Bitter earthy hops, roasted dark malts and a slightly smoky finish. Good!

flatmatt (1125) - Northville, Michigan, USA - AUG 5, 2013
12 oz bottle. Pours black with a tan head. Piney hop aroma, juicy citrus hint with toasty malts hinting at smoke, all giving it a bit of burnt marijuana smell. Hops in the flavor are an even mix of pine and citrus, some ashy flavor and a bit of cocoa. Pretty tasty.

charule (1117) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 13, 2013
Draught at Flo & Santos. Poured almost black(brown) with no head. Resinous aroma. Kind of smooth with obvious hop very bitter at end. Not as good as other BIPAs.

Bottle. Pours black. Very small tan head that dissipates quickly. Strong pine aroma. Taste is of hop bitterness with plenty of roasty coffee and chocolate. Medium to full bodied. Great chewy bitter mouth feel. This may be my favorite Black IPA. After drinking Anger and Dungrass I’m pretty excited about this relatively new brewery. Think I may need to take a road trip this summer to check out the Greenbush tap room.

Looks almost like a robust porter or a stout in the glass. Aggressive, piney nose with some citrus to it. Flavor is a bit of malt pushed forward by a truckload of hops. Finish is a bit of coffee and some hop resins. Long, long aftertaste.

Bottle from Oxford beer store. Dark body and pine and hop nose. Smooth and crisp even with all that hop and grapefruit taste. Pretty impressive for a new brewery. ---Rated via my mouth

brokephibroke (291) - Mead, Colorado, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Bottle from trade with Silphium. Deep black pour with red hues, latte like head. aroma is sweet malt with some raw herbs. Smooth chocolate up front with roasted coffee. Bitter linger denotes the happiness. To me this is almost a stout. The choice of hops makes this a unique beer. The simcoe dominates to me.

Awktoberfest (301) - Davenport, Iowa, USA - JUL 1, 2013
A little raw tasting but alot going on. I like the hops and dark malt backbone play. Definitely not one sided. But still not real clean on either hops taste a little vege and raw but all in all not bad...they will smooth out the edges and this will be a very fine beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
