4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is a magnificent ipa. Fruity and sweet on the nose bitter citrusy hop taste. A smooth creamy palate wrapped up in a nice murky frothy ipa package. This is a great Greenbush beer, as usual.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
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. Not bad... But very forgettable.

1.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a cloudy amber with a nice thick sticky off-white head. Aromas heavy hop citrus and orange. The has a medium bodied mouth feel. Spicy hot flavor upfront and through the middle finishes with that nice orange long-lasting flavor. This is a pretty well done IPA Greenbush should be proud of it is very drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very fizzy pour. Once it settled it turned out to be a decent IPA. Good, but not all that different than many other IPAs.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
