I've had hit or miss experience with Greenbush but this is definitely a winner. The pour is a handsome, crystal clear golden amber with a large white head that gives way to a nice film and lacing. The aroma is a very appealing blend of bitter pine and citrus hops, mord reminiscent of a double ipa than just a regular. The mouthfeel is smooth and a little sticky. Given the dankness of the beer I'd actually like a little more palate coating quality. The flavor is a little less attractive than the nose. The hop flavors come through very fresh but a little too bitter without enough malt to make it balanced. This is not a perfect brew but worth trying. And one of the best I've had from Greenbush.

Another Binnys single shelf pick up. It poured a hazy orangish with white head that is leaving a spotty lace. The scent is sweet with ripe fruit. The taste is heavy on sweet malt with some bitterness at the finish. The Mouthfeel is fuller in body with good carbonation. Overall it's ok. Nothing notable.

Had a bit of a sweetness to it and is unfiltered. Good solid beer in Detroit.
