bottle - This brew pours up a huge off-white head. Itís massively over-carbonated and smells like it. Thereís also a trace of indistinct malt and some off smelling funk. Not good. The flavor is bitter but not in a good way. Medium bodied. Bandaid character. The ample hops taste okay and surprisingly at this point itís not undrinkable, but it canít overcome distasteful signs of infection.

12oz bottle. Thick orange-gold body, big off-white head. Mild peach, melon in the aroma. Has a hint of overcarbonation, maybe inching into infection...something Iíve experienced with this breweries bottles before. Almost has a dry brett finish. Not outright bad, just not that impressive either. Chewy, messy, undefined malts. I have little tolerance for breweries who sell infected beers, and the overall reflects this.

[Bottle] Pours a hazy orange color with a small cap of off-white head. Sweet malts and floral hops come out in the aroma. Caramel malts, light fruits, citrus, lemongrass and sweet honey in the taste. Definitely a bit too sweet for my liking. Not even sure what style this beer is supposed to be.

On tap at The Chicago Beer Festival 2014. Murky amber/brown with a large white head. Sweet caramel, candi sugar, pine, orange zest, pepper, earth. Finish is pale malt and spice.

From notes. 12 oz bottle shared during a sharing of the Advent Calendar (not finished) on March 15. The color is a solid copper color with a thick white head and a good amount of lace. The aroms is a combination of bitter hoppiness and and a little caramel sweetness. The flavor is a little bitter and somewhat skunky. Itís definitely strange to a few of the beers I have had from Greebush. There is a subtle hoppiness and itís one of the better things about this one. The mouth feel is light and slick, with a medium carbonation and a dry aftertaste

Well, some hops. Not much flavor. Rather bland. A little bit of citrus, not much more...

BEERSOLDIER (42) - Illinois, USA - FEB 28, 2014
Orange/rose colored with a big off white head that leaves excellent lacing. Semi cloudy with yeast floating in it. smells very appealing with notes of semi-sweet caramel and floral with hints of fruit and a touch of malt. Right away you get the caramel flavor with some dried fruit. Pretty smooth drinking beer. overall its a very good beer but doesnít quite deliver what I expected. I would drink this beer again but nothing to write home about.

This is a nicely balanced and very drinkable pale ale. The focus is mostly on juicy citric hops which are nicely subdued w/ a mild sweetness to soften firm bitterness in the finish. This is not jumping out at me as a particularly magical experience but it is a solid and well done brew all the same.
