This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of all foam finely sized tan colored bubbles that were very long lasting and left behind a hazy dark orange brown colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The mild aroma was hoppy. The mild citrus mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. The semi-sharp flavor contained notes of caramel crisp and hops. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

From notes. 12 oz bottle shared during a sharing of the Advent Calendar (conclusion!) on March 30. The pour is a light copper with a decent white head and some moderately thick lacing. The aroma is big on hops and a strong citrus presence. There is a nice piney note on the back end. The flavor is somewhat bland for an IPA. There is a little bitterness, but the hoppiness isn’t really that great. The citrus is definitely lax and I’m not too much of a fan. The mouth feel is thin, with a light carbonation and a dry, resin-based aftertaste.

UPDATED: MAR 7, 2015 Bottle: Thanks, Mike! Swampy, murky orange & burnt sienna. Why do all Greenbush beers look like a swamp? Big, stringy looking sediment hanging around with a quickly settling, off-white head. Light aroma; mild citrus flesh & skins, slightly juicy with faint white pepper & light herbal notes. Somewhat uneventful & one-dimensional. First sip is a bit watery, too. Citrus, mild peppery spice, ashy & herbal hemp leaves, a touch of florals, & some back-end pine that leads to a bit of breaded caramel sweetness in the mostly malty finish. Warmth brings forth quieter notes of apricot & grapefruit. Almost medicinal? Maybe soapy? Meh.

Pours a super hazy deep copper color. Fluffy off-white head with some lacing. Aroma is strange, hops mixed with dirty socks. Thick and creamy mouth feel. Nothing but bitterness and off flavors. Almost taste of steak juice and dirty socks. I hope something is wrong with mine.

Upfront floral hops with very pronounced hop bitterness make this a very interesting and drinkable IPA. An unique and complex taste that is both surprisingly complex and delicious.

HonkeyBra (3673) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Sampled at the brewpub. Pours a nice little hazed amber orange color with a small off white head. Aroma of pine, orange peel, mild earth tones, some caramel and sweet bread malts. Flavor is hop bitterness forward. Quite bitter with mild sweet malt undertones. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Finishes bitter, pretty nice.

MrBunn (2535) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Bottle. Pours a gunky amber with a pretty big head and aromas of dunegrass. Alright, kidding. I’m not really getting much off the nose here. A little soapy hops and that’s about it. Flavor is pungently hoppy... too much so. It’s not that I don’t like hops... but this mix doesn’t work for me. Lots of astringent hops... and I didn’t know that was possible. It’s just a punchy and odd mix of hops that I don’t care for. Sorry Greenbush.

Bottle from trade with Cbuk1013. Reddish gold pour with white head. Nice aromatics of pine and citrus, also hay. Taste is full of hop punch - fresh, crisp and light. Very smooth and drinkable.

Bottle courtesy of my coworkers fiancé Lance. Amber bodied with a short white head. Aroma is citrusy with light pine and soft caramel. Taste is citrus, pine notes, caramel and toasted malt. Body is medium with a soft creamy carbonation and a light lingering hop bitterness. Ends with more caramel, toasted malt, citrus oils, light pine and grains.
