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

this was brought to me in a 16 oz glass. about quarter inch of head. nice hoppy aroma. good carbonation and lacing down the glass. good hop taste with light balance from the malts.

this went well with the turkey Rueben they served. slight hop aftertaste which I like for a hopped brew. tingles in the mouth well.

this was purchased at their brew pub in Sawyer Michigan. a good place with a great selection of a wide variety of brewed on site beers.

suckem up and movem out!

On tap at Ashley's in Westland for the Shorts vs. Greenbush Throwdown. Pours a weird color, something slightly resembling a burnt copper - murky and hazy throughout. The beige head scatters pretty quickly and settles nicely into a skin that hangs around for the duration of the brew. Sadly, not much lacing was left on the sides of the glass despite the decent retention of the skin.

There's no mistaking the wheat in this beer - the first sniff is packed with a truckload of wheat, backed up by a faint hoppy character. The hops are kind of faint, especially considering the fact that this is supposed to be a "Wheat IPA". Musty, dry, and somewhat floral in character, I wish they popped a little more. Apparently these are made with Zythos hops... I'm not so sure what Zythos hops are, even, but they seem like some strange mix of an American C-hop and a Noble hop.

The taste actually contains a stronger performance from the malt and wheat than the hops. Lots of sweet toffee, caramel, and a large blanket of bready wheat. Nice mouth feel; soft and light with a very light creaminess to it. Hops take a second to kick in, but they finally arrive, albeit a little late. Again, they're slightly leafy and floral, but it's nice to see the citrus flavors come out a bit more in the taste. White pepper sprinkled over a sea of grapefruit. Bitterness is pretty low, and the hops fade out pretty quickly, leaving a finish with mostly sweet malt and wheat flavors, aside from maybe a small touch of citrus peels and leaves.

Another beer from Greenbush that is good, but not great. It's got a nice balance of flavors; good amounts of malt, wheat, and hops, although there's nothing here that's really jumping out at me and smacking me in the face. It drinks super-easy, especially at 7.6% ABV, but in a Michigan market saturated with great beers, it's doubtful I'd ever reach for this one again.
