Tmoney99 (10090) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 13, 2012
Draft sample. Poured hazy copper color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate complex earthy and sour citrus hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy bitter flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of medium duration. Very good brew.

daknole (8540) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - SEP 13, 2011
Sparkling gold pour, small white head. Nice grassy and herbal hops in the aroma. Flavor is a great blend of hops...grassy, earthy, juicy bitterness and just the right malt backbone. Good stuff!

NielsenRatings (8275) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 1, 2013
Bottle @ home via trade with barak316. Thanks Bill! Never heard of this brewery but it looks interesting. Pours a muddy orangish brown appearance with a tan head. Appears to be unfiltered. Caramel, toasty malty, a touch nutty, piney, spicy hoppy, light chocolate aroma. A bit tangy, grapefruit citrusy, toasty malty, caramel, slightly herbal flavor. Somewhat decent but also somewhat not pleasant.

Sammy (8094) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 11, 2013
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.

These Michigan breweries love the herbal, spicier IPAs, and I do too, a solid offering on draft.

rosenbergh (6103) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 7, 2013
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.

deyholla (5974) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - FEB 18, 2012
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a slightly hazy gold with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces. Aroma has a light fruit note with citrus and a strong grain backbone. Flavor has light citrus and flora with backing grassy hops and grain.

BBB63 (5743) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - AUG 14, 2011
Tap: Slightly hazy amber golden hue with an okay head and some lace. The aroma has notes of citric and resiny hops, slight clove, biscuity British malt and some sweeter aromatics as well. The taste is twangy citrus, leafy bitterness with a pale and crystal malt background before leading off towards a peppery finish.The mouth feel us quite refreshing, more lively than the head let on and yet nicely dry upon the slightly metallic finish. Overall this is a solid IPA that shows what freshness can do.

TheAlum (5205) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - OCT 25, 2011
Sampled on tap at Haymarket (Chicago, IL). Pours a well hazed glowing amber pour, some sunset elements with a big cakey offwhite head atop, sticks around well and laces well overall. Aromas are some gentle hops, lemons and grass mixing with touches of florals, bread and dough, touches of crackers, gentle grapefruit works it’s way in as it warms. Initial is medium bodied, offering some sweetness up front paired with fruity citrus. Some lemon and orange meet a light dry grassy hop and some malt body, nothing sweet, bready and a bit crackery, pale malts. Middle starts to build a decent bitterness showing more of the grapefruit and florals. A touch sweet and floral as I get further in, but a very pretty beer. Finish shows some mellow sweetness and cardboardy/paper elements mixing with lemons, grapefruit, florals, some grass and gentle dry hops. The beer has some nice elements, throwing a decent dose of sweeter fruity orange up front and getting a bit more dry and earthy into the finish. It’s not a bad beer, but does fall a bit by the wayside to the other hoppy beers I’ve had on tap at the brewpub. Ok. Compared to the other ratings, perhaps the age of the distribution system has been at work here.. Compared to all other Greenbush beers fresh at the brewpub. With the description, I just imagined a more intense and complex hop "Pop".
