Had on tap at Kumas Corner. Served in a pint glass. A: Pours a light black color with dark brown edges where the light catches it. A light tan head forms on the pour and dissipates to a thin collar. It leaves some nice soapy webbing behind. S: The nose has some fruity citrus hops with some nice roasted malts and some light bitter chocolate. Pretty standard, but good. T: Wow, the taste is significantly better than the nose. There is a great combination of citrus hop flavors with a nice roasted oat malt body. The bitter chocolate provides a nice base for the citrus and there is also a light coffee bean flavor that plays off the lingering hop flavor. The finish is roasty with a light pine. M: Medium bodied with a nice carbonation. The finish is refreshing with a drying, roasted finish. O: Very solid. Really well done with the green hops lingering in the background while the roasted malts and chocolate flavors were upfront. Nicely done Greenbush. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 06-14-2012

On tap at Blackthorn Pub, Holly,MI...this could easily pass as an Imperial Stout as it is deep black and viscous. But it is balanced with a green leafiness and a delightful funk that was very appealing. My first Greenbush tap...outstanding!

Draft. Pours black with decent head. Te aroma is earthy and good amount of hops. The taste is good. Smooth up front. Has a serious earthy flavor to it. A very interesting black ipa. A real winner. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2012-08-17. Black body with a nice tan head and lace. 4+ Interesting aroma, nice roast and green leafy funk. 7+ Flavour has sort of a dry roasty character, with mild leafy green hops that have a very interesting quality to it that defies my description, vaguely cocoa like but that is not really it. 8+ Smooth average plus to medium palate. 3+ A very solid black IPA. Quite nice. Growler, Campground Brewdown 2012
