3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Binnys singles rack - nothing at all on the bottle to distinguish the hops used; while this is the only one which mentions bottles of the hop varietals, my personal take would have had this as more of an East Golding/Fuggles one. That being said ... this pours an unclear copper with an off-white head leaving spots of lace. Aroma has fruit, pine and tangy spices and herbs. One of the smells is a bit off-putting and plastic-y. Taste is of malty sweet toffee, fresh (pineapple?) and citrus fruits, biscuits and resin. Medium bodied. Slightly sticky. Finishes longish and more bitter than sweet, which is surprising as the citrus component is minor until then. Have had very good Greenbush stuff, and mediocre Greenbush stuff. It is the type of small brewery that would be great to see succeed, but their stuff needs to be superior to this ...

I think this is the right one? Bottle. Huge white head. Tons of carbonation. Floral bitter flavor. Ok but not one I will likely buy again.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Orange-amber colored body, medium sized off-white head, soapy lacing. Lightly-sweet malt drives the flavor profile and is rounded out with soft citrus and floral hops. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, a bit too sweet and malty. Ok.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is tropical fruit/lime, malts and a hint of sugar. The flavor is tropical fruit, definite hop resin notes, fruit, malts and a very dry/bitter finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle poured into tulip glass. Murky, dark amber color with a foamy off-white head. Sweet malt and floral hop aroma. Toasted malt and caramel initial flavors with subtle flowery bitterness in the finish which gets more powerful as it lingers. Medium bodied, which is heavier than I expected. Sticky texture with average carbonation. Not bad, I just wasnít a big fan of the aftertaste this left.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not a particularly distinctive brew. Pale ale with bitterness. Not much flavor. I get the inkling that this brewery will be producing hop forward beers, which Iím tired of, frankly. Everybody is hop forward, seemingly, my hope is that Greenbush try to make something special. Maybe this brewery has already, there are quite a lot of their beers at the store, after all.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. 5.9% ABV. Pours a murky amber with a rocky khaki cap that leaves some foamy, clingy lace. Lots going on aromatically: some pine, earthiness, herbal tea, caramel, stone fruit, a touch of plum, some grain. Pretty sweet, with a fair bitter balance. Medium bodied, fair action, with a long bitter finish. Tasty brew, pretty well balanced, and just good all around.

Not as good as Iíd hoped. A little plain, and I could see someone using this as their go-to-pale, but just didnít impress me.
