3.03/5  rDev -23.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A pitch black with a dark creamy head that has a good cling to it.

S. hop resin, malts, chocolate and coffee beans.

T. Good level of hop taste up front, some malts, full bodied, toasted nutty flavor, roasted coffee. The balance falls apart as the beer finishes with a heavy handed dose of anise that sticks to the mouth.

O. The charred lack licorice taste left a bad aftertaste and a lot to be desired. I will not be having this again.

Black IPA. Served on-draught into a pilsner glass at Jake Melnick's in Chicago over St. Patrick's Day weekend. Reviewed from notes. Expectations were high; I really enjoyed Greenbush's porter right before this.

A: Pours a one finger rich tan colour head of good cream and thickness, and good (3-4+ minute) retention. Body colour is a solid opaque dark black. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.

Sm: Floral hops, dark malts, and slightly buried roast. A mild strength aroma.

T: Creamy. Dark malts. Generic floral hop character. Buried yet intrusive roast. Balance is decent, but it's still an unrefined black IPA, never quite getting the mix of roast/dark malts and hoppy character to feel natural. They don't play well together here. Lacks complexity and subtlety, but it's built decently for what it is. No yeast character or alcohol comes through.

Mf: Smooth, creamy, and wet. Nice thickness. Slight overcarbonation.

Dr: Drinkable. Hides its ABV pretty well. Enjoyable, but far from the best in the style that I've had. I might have it again, but I'm in no hurry. Wouldn't recommend it to friends. Unrefreshing.

High C+

Fresh bottle from trade.

Brown pour with tan head. Aroma is earthy - grass, dirt. Taste is hoppy - bitter, bright notes of pine with some malt backbone (although not as pronounced as I would like).

Not my favorite but a decent offering from Greenbush.

3.43/5  rDev -13.2%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pour is dark brown, fairly right tan colored head. Nose has a decent amount of roast and some black licorice notes. Light char and a bit of citrus orange. Taste is even more char, heavy and dark roast, black malts, citrus and hops behind, lingering bitterness with strong lingering char. Strong carbonation on a light body, a bit slick on the back of the throat.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

This bipa pours a very dark mahogany body with a short lasting tan head and just a slight film lace. The nose is subtle and a little funky. Slightly hoppy but also roasty and dark. The mouthfeel is smooth and rather light. It could actually use s little more body. The flavor is not particularly hoppy mostly just light coffee notes and a little citrus. Almost closer to a light porter than a bipa. Not a bad beer but nothing to hunt down.
