Draft. Pours black with decent head. Te aroma is earthy and good amount of hops. The taste is good. Smooth up front. Has a serious earthy flavor to it. A very interesting black ipa. A real winner. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Darker black body. Looks kind of like a cola. Big hop aroma with some sweetness. Lots of chocolate taste. Good amount of hop flavor. Mouthfeel similar to coke.

Like the name. This is my second Greenbush, and it has "IPA" on the label, so I will (as a hopeless hop-head, be critical. Looking forward to the 85 IBU. Good pour, a dark, dark brown body with a tall sudsy head that slowly vanishes in chunks, pasting gobs of lace on the glass. Itís got a resinous, zesty aroma, very little of the malt coming through. The flavor starts with the malt, a bit of dark caramel (maybe), but is soon taken over by the sharp citrus, zest and pine tastes and a sturdy, growing bitterness. (Nice.) The hefty ABV doesnít really show itself until itís in the bloodstream. Good ale. Iím not really big on Black IPAs, but this is a repeater for me.

On tap at Graydonís Crossing. Nice roasty nose, coffee with molasses and smoky notes. Bit of chocolate. Dark black opaque with creamy tan head. Medium body with medium-high carbonation. Starts moderately sweet, roasted coffee, chocolate, and molasses. Big hop flavors. Finish is chocolate and hoppy bitterness. Bitter after.

Location: Draft at Girl and the Goat, 7/5/14

Aroma: The nose is a nice mix of chocolate malts and pine/resiny hops
Appearance: It pours a dark brown color with a nice forth of tan/light brown head
Flavor: The taste is similar to the nose, nice balance, some sweetness, but leans bitter
Palate: The body is medium, it has a solid mouthfeel, smooth, with a decent dryness
Overall Impression: A very nice example of the style overall. I enjoyed this beer, and I also thought it held up well with the food at this excellent restaurant.

First off, Iím not a big fan of black IPAs, but a beer buddy here in the office is a monster fan, so I get to try lots of them. Anger is black with a tiny tan head. The aroma is roasted grain, coffee, dark chocolate and booze. The taste is essentially identical, with citrus and pine hops thrown in. The roasting seems to be a tad on the burnt side. Anger isnít quite for me, but it is a quality beer nonetheless.

Pours a dark black with a very foamy, long-lasting tan head. Has an aroma of pine and roasted malts. Flavor is roasted malts with some pine and bitterness. Flavors are blended together perfectly. Delicious.

bottle - Pours black with a one finger, tan head. The aroma is of roast malt with underlying citrus. It tastes of roasted malt with high bitterness and some nice pine character. It works.
