Bottle from the brewery, 12oz into a tulip. Listed at 5.9% ABV.

Looks quite different from what others have described here, mine poured a deep amber-brown, with an ultra-persistent offwhite head. Super creamy and sheets of lacing. Nose has some hop character, and a weird mineral/yeast thing going on. Some bread underneath. Not at all inviting for a pale. Taste has some grassy/green hop notes, and again a weird bready/yeasty and mineral quality to it that I can't get past. Drying and moderately bitter finish. Medium full feel, medium carbonation. Not at all a fan - not sure if something went wrong with the bottling or the brew here.

Two finger head with excellent lacing on a murky golden amber body. Very nice aroma appropriate in degree for the style with caramel malts, grapefruit citrus and toast. Nicely balanced flavor opening with toasted caramel malts with the hops coming in late with citrus tartness, grass, floral and metallic flavors. Medium body and moderate carbonation. A very nice pale ale. The hop character may make this less drinkable for some but I feel this one is well balanced and memorable for a style which is usually very variable.

On tap @ Hop Cat.

A - Straw yellow with a small layer of white head.

S - Grapefruit, pine and a fairly prominent overall bitterness.

T - Fresh grapefruit, pine, some peach and mango. A decent bitterness for an APA. Some sweet bready malts in background but definitely hop-forward.

M - Light body. Moderate carboantion.

A - Golden yellow in color a little bit hazy. It had a nice White foamy white head that kind of stuck around for a while. Some nice lacing on the sides of the glass a little spotty.

S - It had a pretty mild nose. A few things stood out to me though it had a lot of Floral and earthy notes that really stood out to me.

T - The Taste was mild you get a lot of earthy and floral notes in the front of the beer but backbone of this beer has some toffee notes and breaddy malts.

M - Light bodied, low carbonation kind of nice to have around on a hot summer day.

D - Very Drinkable it has some nice qualities about it but Greenbush has a lot better beers in there lineup.
