4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled on tap at Greenbush in a pint. Pours an opaque deep orange, with a fingers worth of white head. Nose bursts with citra hops, but the mango is very subtle. There is also notes of pine and citrus. Though the flavor has some more citra character, it is largely bitter pine with a hint of citrus fruit. Medium mouthfeel, good carbonation, and a long finish. My favorite Greenbush offering thus far. Really looking forward to trying some other things from Greenbush.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Greenbush brewpub. Hazy amber with a medium tan head that slowly fades leaving a nice ring of lace. Aroma is resinous and woodsy with cat pee, caramel, sweet malt and mild mango. Taste of pine, citrus, mango, resinous hops balanced by some sweeter malts. Finishes up with just the right amount of bitterness. Very good!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
Half pint at the brewery. Pours a cloudy yellow/orange. I can instantly tell this is going to be a very, very hoppy IPA. It exceeded my expectations from this tiny little brewery. The aroma is clean and pungent with notes of grapefruit, mango, grass and a light sweetness. The outstanding hop flavor cuts through everything. Itís so bitter and clean. Notes of grapefruit, mango juiciness with some light malts for a vessel to get these hops on my palate. What a great hop bomb!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
4 oz pour on tap at the Greenbush Takeover Event at Haymarket (Chicago, IL). Pours a rich glowing orange amber glowing hue, rich haze, frothy offwhite head sits atop, laces well and sticks around ok. Aromas are rich citrus, Citra hops give some life, tropical fruit, grapefruit, and florals. Very rich nose grows as it warms. Touches of pale malts, wheat, and bread. Initial is rich fruit, Citra, tropical and grapefruit juice is rich with this one. A touch tart, resinous and bitter. Middle offers just a touch of bread really keeping with the rich fruity grapefruit, Citra, gentle tropical fruit. Rich bitterness into the finish. Itís not complex but itís flavorful, rich, and just a rich hop explosion. Good flavors, a touch of sweetness into the backend. Very nice. Rich hops, grapefruit juice, less sweetness. A perfect storm of hop flavors. Good lacing. Fantastic, guys.
