Too much "Black" and too little "IPA". A decent brew, but leans too much on the dark malts. Almost a porter.

Bottle fromMikem409. First bottle I?ve opened that had part of the glass top break and fell into the bottle. Black pour with creamy tan head. Aroma is piney hops and roast. Taste is nice roast and hints of biterness. Pretty good.

Alextricity (509) - Michigan, USA - MAR 20, 2013
Had on tap for $5.99 a pint at Terrys Terrace in Harrison Township (?), Michigan. Just not as impressed as the majority of people here. Appearance: Pitch black with a creamy finger or two of head. Pretty gorgeous, if I may say so. The lacing doesnt last through the whole glass, but its nice looking regardless. Smell: Quite interesting, like the taste is... smells like a stout or dark coffee with hops. Has roasted malts, coffee, and... hops. Taste: A lot like the smell, but with tastes of char and smoke as well. The hops arent present initially, but kick in on the finish. It definitely has a different taste for the average craft beer drinker (whatever that means), but its certainly not an unpleasant one. I definitely preferred this beer when it was a little bit colder than room temperature -- once it warmed up, the alcohol could be traced, there was a warmth in the throat, the primary taste was that of smoked wood, and the bitterness really kicked in. I didnt hate it, but it was certainly tastier within the first 15-20 minutes of having it, as it seemed to just be more balanced. It isnt my favorite of the style, but it has a unique taste to it... it had me thinking, and it really changes quite a lot the more it warms up. Wouldnt be my go-to black ale, but its a very nice offering from a brewery that I have never heard of. Good going, Greenbush.

Fukito (1057) - Santiago, CHILE - MAR 13, 2013
Opaque black color with a creamy medium beige head. Aroma is fruity, with some pineapple notes. Flavor is citrusy hopiness with some toasted malt-stout like notes, interesting bittersweet aftertaste. Medium palate, flavorful and gentle with medium to light carbonatation.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - FEB 25, 2013
Bottle. Aroma has notes of roasted malts, citrus hops and cereal malts. Black hue with an average tan head that mostly diminished and left decent lace. Flavor is medium sweet and very bitter. Palate is full bodied and water average. Overall a solid BIPA.

On tap. Really interesting. Smooth, hoppy taste with a nice easy palate. Dark, coffee color. Doesn't taste as strong as it is. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
