Very fizzy pour. Once it settled it turned out to be a decent IPA. Good, but not all that different than many other IPAs.

bottle. Amber with two finger head. Very aggressive carbonation -- I doubt this level of carbonation was the intent. Pretty substantial malt body and bitter hops. Average at best for the style, and that’s probably generous. This is another one that I recall being much better on tap at the brewpub.

Fresh bottle from Champane’s Cellars. Tasty hop combo, but somewhat harsh finish. Stil good drinkability. Orange bodied, big retained head. Orange citrus flavour, with some pineapple and mango.

12 oz bottle. (Siciliano’s) Grand Rapids, MI.
A bit cloudy amber colour with a ridiculously big foamy off-white head. I’m not sure if this is supposed to be like this but as there’s no bottling and best before date I can’t say how old this bottle is. Belgian style yeast... weird... piney and fruity hops... no bitterness... spices? in the aroma. The aroma is closer to a Belgian Ale or Saison than a regular American IPA. The flavour is also quite Belgian... now this is strange. Piney and resiny hops, Belgian yeast and moderate bitterness in the flavour. Not bad at all... just something I didn’t quite expect.

12 oz bottle. Most overcarbonated pour I’ve ever seen; I had a glass full of foam with foam still bubbling out the bottle. After quite a while it settles into a fully hazed amber with an off-white head (obviously quite large). Citrus, floral, earthy aromas. Nice sharp citrus hop flavor, more florals and earthiness, light caramel. Tastes pretty good even if there’s something wrong with it. Will hopefully rerate.

I came across the Greenbush Brewing Co. by chance while driving thru MI last spring. Tried their Dunegras IPA with lunch. Fantastic IPA!!! On a motorcycle trip thru MI this summer, I stopped back in just to enjoy this brew while I was in the area. Excellant local craft brew!!!

12oz bottle pours a hazy orange with an off white head. Piney hoppy taste and aroma. Great ipa

Alextricity (509) - Michigan, USA - SEP 9, 2013
$2 12oz bottle poured into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint. Appearance: A very hazy red color with orange around the edges -- bits can be seen floating around, and there’s a little bit of sediment. There’s a two finger of off-white, creamy head that lasts awhile before dying down to about half a finger. Lacing is awesome. Smell: A lot of piney, resinous hops with really no fruit character to speak of. Grassy and earthy. A bit of spiciness comes through as well. Very nice, and smells super fresh. Taste/feel: Follows the nose for the most part, with a good "malt backbone" as they say. IBUs on this are at 67, which is about what I’d guess. There’s a slight bitterness on the finish just to let you know that you’re sipping on an IPA. As the beer warms up, it gets a slightly fruity quality to it, and it tastes a little more sweet. The mouthfeel on this beer sets it apart from most IPAs that I have had -- like their Closure Pale Ale, this beer has a very silky, drinkable quality. I’m really enjoying Greenbush, and I’m glad to get the chance to taste their stuff. Another awesome beer ... I’m surprised the score on this site is "only" 86.

Just ok. Not a well balanced beer, lacking in taste. Missing something, might need more of a citrusy splash to complete.

12oz bottle from Wine & Brew, shared with robotopera. Mostly hazy darker amber color. Bigger off-white head. Good thicker lace. Nice spicy, hoppy citrusy aroma, light caramel malt. Bigger body. Smooth, softer, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Nice moderate bitter, spicy, light to medium sweet malt taste. Tasty IPA with a good malt profile, but a good tropical fruit spiciness too. Delicious.
