Tap at Trion: Nearly black with a small tan head. Scent is sharp coffee, roast...sharp hops. Taste is nicely hopped, chocolate/coffee. Moderate bitter for 85 IBU...... Very nicely done.

Aroma is pine, dark malts and a hint of mint. The flavor is grapefruit, hop resin, tangy notes and a mild/medium spicy/heat finish.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 5, 2012
In short: A roasted and citrusy Black IPA of above average quality.
How: Growler shared at Camping Brewdown 2012.
The look: Very near black body topped by a small beige head
In long: Nose is inviting with pleasant bright hop aroma (mostly citrusy but also a bit grassy) and a good roast. Taste has highly roasted blackened malts with some of the usual suspects of this type of malt backbone (cacao sensation, ground coffee), nothing fruity here. Hopping shines, mostly citrusy, bitterness of medium intensity. The roast and bitterness create a somewhat dry finish. Good mouthfeel with a lot of soft bubbles. My type of Black IPA, an above average example of the style. Another good growler shared at week-end long Camping Brewdown 2012, that party was so epic that it should have been narrated by Morgan Freeman.

ben4321 (6067) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 30, 2014
Location: Draft at Girl and the Goat, 7/5/14

Aroma: The nose is a nice mix of chocolate malts and pine/resiny hops
Appearance: It pours a dark brown color with a nice forth of tan/light brown head
Flavor: The taste is similar to the nose, nice balance, some sweetness, but leans bitter
Palate: The body is medium, it has a solid mouthfeel, smooth, with a decent dryness
Overall Impression: A very nice example of the style overall. I enjoyed this beer, and I also thought it held up well with the food at this excellent restaurant.

thedm (5976) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUN 26, 2015
This draft beer from a beer bar poured a small sized head of fine to medium sized mostly diminishing brown colored bubbles that left behind an opaque dark black colored body with no visible carbonation and a fair lacing. The aroma was mild with black malty notes. The palate was tingly from start to finish with a lingering black malt hoppy note. The flavor was good with strong black hops and a mild roasted malt note. A very good example of a Black IPA and one I would not mind having again.

nuplastikk (5960) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 5, 2013
12oz bottle. Big, real deal Black IPA. Opaque brown-black body. Big foamy beige head. Classic black chocolate mint aroma and flavor. Big and full bodied, with some serious chocolate covered hops. While it still seems like its on the brink of infection, this is a pretty quality offering. Chunky, thick specialty malts. Solid.

Huge thanks to panantap for tossing in this extra, Smells like a hill farmstead beer. Good light roasty flavors. This is pretty tasty.

Like the name. This is my second Greenbush, and it has "IPA" on the label, so I will (as a hopeless hop-head, be critical. Looking forward to the 85 IBU. Good pour, a dark, dark brown body with a tall sudsy head that slowly vanishes in chunks, pasting gobs of lace on the glass. Its got a resinous, zesty aroma, very little of the malt coming through. The flavor starts with the malt, a bit of dark caramel (maybe), but is soon taken over by the sharp citrus, zest and pine tastes and a sturdy, growing bitterness. (Nice.) The hefty ABV doesnt really show itself until its in the bloodstream. Good ale. Im not really big on Black IPAs, but this is a repeater for me.
