Pours a pretty opaque, murky-looking amber with a sizable off-white head that hangs around quite a while. Intense, refreshingly hoppy nose with lots of pine needles and bright citrus, and a touch of chocolate malt notes. Not a whole lot of sweetness, at least compared to the massive bitterness. Medium bodied, fairly active, with a huge drying bitterness on the end. I tried this quite a while back when Greenbush had just begun distributing kegs, and while it still isn’t much to look at, I feel like they’ve really nailed down the hop profile aromatically, taste-wise, and on the palate to where this is an impressive brew at this point.

Out of bottle pour is a orange, cloudy amber. Head is strong initially but resides quickly. Aroma is a nice, subtle, citrus, hoppy aroma. Taste is Hoppy, grassy, bitter, and malty. Overall a pretty good IPA ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Greenbush. Very murky with a small head. Smells of lemon grass and sweet malt. The taste is well balanced. Sweet malt with that tangy lemon grass note that was in the nose.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy amber. Big off white head. Very nice retention. Big grassy aroma. Favor is pur bitter. Big bitter mouthfeel. Nothing hidden about this beer. Its pure in your face bitter. With all the bitter this isn’t a beginner beer, but for those that appreciate this is a very nice and refreshing IPA. Would recommend and will definitely buy again.

Pours a cloudy amber with a light white head. Nice hop aroma, slightly citrusy, nicely bitter. Very clean taste and not an overpowering IPA. Solid representation of the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BigBeer45 (1235) - Michigan, USA - APR 25, 2013
Sampled from a bottle, this ale had a orange-red pour with a good haze and it made a more than one finger off-white head with a little yellow tint, the glass had a center stream of medium flowing bubbles, the glass had nice spots and fingers of lacing on the sides, the bottom of the bottle had a layer dark sediment, this drink had aromas of toasted malt, orange fruit, citrus and floral hops, bread, malt and fruit sweetness, it had flavors of toasted malt, citrus and grass hops, some caramel, orange and grapefruit with some malt sweetness, the finish had a hop bitterness with some malt trailing, the mouth feel was less than medium with a nice creamy feel on the tongue, a tasty IPA.

Onslow (1130) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - APR 20, 2013
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Copper colored brew with medium tan head. Aroma of tropical fruit, over-ripe apple & pear, a little earth. Taste is sweet caramel malt at the start with butterscotch and a mango emerging mid swallow. A little citrus and resin and sweet fruit, a little resin and citrus appearing. Rather sweet throughout and not overtly hoppy despite the IBU’s. Very pleasant and tasty and a bit of a non-conformist in the world of hopped up IPA’s.
