3.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a slightly cloudy brown with a really dank aroma that is heavenly! Great balance between the 67 IBUs and the malt. It must be amazing on draft!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rated on 4-06-2014 (Bottle purchased at Belmont Beverage Time Corners-Ft. Wayne, IN) This beer pours a large extremely foamy beige head that mostly diminishes, hazy amber body and soapy lacing. The aroma is citrus hops, fruity and a suggestion of spice. The taste is very bitter, citrus hops, semi-fruity and caramel malt. The mouthfeel is lively and this beer is light-medium bodied. This beer is for the hop heads as it is very hoppy tasting. It is in your face hops which is a bit too hoppy for my palate. It is worth trying if one likes very hoppy tasting beer.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.
