A haughty black ipa with a bit of pent-up attitude for those "special" days. Our addicting little black IPA using Belgian dark malts and dry-hopped for intense aroma. 7.6% ABV and 85 IBUís. Release some bottled-up Anger and learn to enjoy life a little.

Taster at Standard Market, and Iím finally popping the cap on my first Greenbush beer, too. Oh, yes, Amarillo right up the nose on the first sniff. This would indeed be a beer to inspire anger. Black with some brown highlight, and a persistent stoutlike-head. Taste is hit up hard by catbox Amarillo and Simcoe, which overrides much of the malt profile. Still, I get some spiciness from wheat more than any roastiness. A very light mouthfeel makes up for the rough palate, light carbonation makes it feel almost like there was some nitro involved (which there wasnít). Alcohol starts to kick in after the second ounce, so be careful not to swig this.

Bottle:   Black, very nice light khaki head, fine bubbles, very sticky lacing... probably one of the better looking Black IPAs.   Spicy nose, like a spiced dark chocolate.   Smooth on the tongue, sweet roasted malts, with that dark chocolate with a hint of some sort of spice.   I want to say some sort of cinnamon and maybe some chilies.   Very interesting, and different.   Smooth on the tongue, almost full bodied.   Clean finish, soft roasted malts, a bit sweet, with the aformentioned spices.   This one is very unique, and very welcomed.   Great example!

Very dark and very good. Chocolate notes mixed with hearty hops. This is a great example of a black ipa. Must try.

This black IPA pours a giant, foamy head with a nose of anise and resiny hops. First taste is of mild tobacco and black pat malt, then fades into roasty bitterness. Head retention is good. A medium bodied brew and a solid brew. Would like more juicy hops in this to make it stand out.

Damico (2979) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 3, 2015
Pours thick dark coffee in color with a lady beige head. The aroma is light roasted not quite burnt coffee. Flavor is nice roasted coffee notes and pretty subtle hops after that.

thedm (5206) - Fort Wayne, USA - JUN 26, 2015
This draft beer from a beer bar poured a small sized head of fine to medium sized mostly diminishing brown colored bubbles that left behind an opaque dark black colored body with no visible carbonation and a fair lacing. The aroma was mild with black malty notes. The palate was tingly from start to finish with a lingering black malt hoppy note. The flavor was good with strong black hops and a mild roasted malt note. A very good example of a Black IPA and one I would not mind having again.

Greenbush equals great beer. They knock it out of the park again with this dark and malty black pirates beer of an ipa. Enjoy.

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.
