I was pleasantly surprised by the floral sweet aroma. After the first sip it continued to really satisfy me. This could be my go to pale ale going forward. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Not a fan of having to try and research which hop variety it is... That said, dark caramel color with essentially zero head. Totally flat. Wonder if this was intentional? Sweet apple, pear and citrus aroma. Floral and tart with a bitter finish.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Bottle. Aroma has notes of flowers, lavender, grass, citrus, caramel and cereal malts. Medium amber hue with an average off-white head that mostly diminished and left some lace. Flavor is medium sweet and very bitter. Palate is medium bodied and watery with average carbonation. Overall a decent pale ale with a nice floral nose.

Bottle. Interesting to make a beer that will have different hops used each time itís bottled. Iím guessing this is the apollo one based on the label picture and the website. Pours a cloudy darkish orange color with a big frothy head that quickly fades leaving lots of lacing. Huge floral nose and not much else. But I really like the aroma, very soothing. Taste is very floral as well and a very light caramel malt comes through. Finishes a touch dry and the floral taste lingers an incredibly long time. Medium body, mouthfeel is a bit over-carbonated but I like the slightly oily character. The two Greenbush bottles Iíve had have both been over-carbonated. I hope they work out that issue. Otherwise, this was a very good floral pale ale.

Bottle to glass. How do you know which hop variety each bottle is?; I made my best guess based on GBís website. Aroma is strong: soft flower, almost lavender. Big, beautiful, fluffy head. Floral, but very reserved flavor. Sweet in a way I have not experienced, but very much enjoy. Iíve had many on tap but this is my first GB bottle; man is it good to be able to bring this home!

12oz bottle picked up at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy, copper colored body with a thin, creamy, beige head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is citrusy with faded grass, herbal notes, some resins, and florals with a somewhat sweet, bready, crystal malt backing. Flavor is similar. Bitter citruses with some resins, a bunch of florals, and grass alongside a medium sweet, crystal and caramel, somewhat bready malt backing. Finishes dry and bitter, but pretty well balanced with the crystal malts. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a decent APA that is pretty bitter and fairly citrusy, but balanced enough with a somewhat sweet, crystal and bready malt backing.

Draft. Poured hazy copper color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate resin hop and soft malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate smooth bittersweet flavor with a moderate bitterswwet finish of medium duration. This a good brew.

Hazy orange pour with thick tall lingering tan head. Grassy scent, a little sweetness. Solid medium body. Hops are unrelentingly bitter. Dry bitter finish.

Pours an orange with a fizzy white head. Nose and taste a fairly one dimensional. If you love this hop variety you will love this beer, if not, them itíll just be good. This beer is all about the Apollo hop.

On tap at Greenbush Brewpub. Hazy amber with a thin off-white head. Aroma of caramel, resinous hops, citrus and some floral notes. Taste of heavy citrus, woodsy hopes, pine, caramel and resinous hops. High alpha acid with a long lasting bitterness.
