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.

12 oz pour at watershed in Chicago. Wonderful aroma of pine hops and roasted malt. Tasted fantastic with the same taste as was the aroma with a full bodied mouthfeel. Would definitely, and will drink again.

12 oz. bottle pours a dark brown/with moderate beige head that leaves good lacing. Aroma has citrus and piney hops with some roasted coffee and perhaps even coconut. Taste is bitter at the start with some caramel sweetness and roastiness in the middle before the bitterness lingers in the finish. Body is medium to full with average carbonation and a slightly oily mouthfeel. Thereís a lot more going on here than I expected. A great black IPA Iíll definitely try again.

By far one of my favorite beers from Greenbush right next to the Star Chicken Shot Gun.

12oz bottle as an extra from Mr_Abner. Thanks, Dan! Pours dark mahoghany with a big beige head. Aroma is grapefruit and pine. Taste is caramel, chocolate, coffee grinds followed by grapefruit and pine bitterness. A solid black IPA.

Though an IPA, the aromas are mostly malt-like - roasted aromas, coconut(!),. Hops provide some grapefruit and general bitterness. Large, though not too persistent, light brown head. Dark almost black color. Taste includes a bit of sweetness, a fair amount of bitterness and just a hint of sourness. Body is moderate to heavy, texture is a bit slick and a bit oily; average carbonation and a long finish thatís sweet, bitter, roasted and citrusy. Overall I like the diversity of flavors in this beer; not great but nice and interesting.

kjc51478 (441) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - JAN 21, 2015
12 oz Bottle. Appearance is dark brown/black color with medium, beige head--in color, head, and lacing this is a beautiful beer. Aroma is forward with the citrus hops, grapefruit, lemon, pine with a subtle roasty, coffee note in the background. Taste is nice and bitter with the herbally, piney flavors showing. Roasted malt coffee and slight sweet caramel are also present. Palate is medium to full-bodied, creamy texture, and nice and dry in the finish. Great beer.

LearninBeer (417) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - DEC 19, 2014
The aroma is a little light at first, then hints of malts - coffee, roasty, a little smokiness then a touch of hoppiness - spruce. Pours a dark brown with a big light brown head, mostly lasting and excellent lacing. The taste is WOW - bitter; I would say smokey and rich and yummy but thatís not allowed (for me anyway). The body is medium to full, the texture creamy, the carbonation lively, the finish bitter and long. Overall WOW - I am a fan of Greenbush now! Very Good!!

arminjewell (8522) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 17, 2014
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, dark brownish black pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, some nice pine, grass, some slight orange in there as well, some slight roast. Taste is a mix of caramel, toffee, roast, coffee, hints of orange and grapefruit, finishing slightly sweet, slightly bitter.
