A solid black brown colored ale poured cold from the 12 ounce bottle. It carries a hefty tan layer of frothy bubbles on top and leaves a serious blanket of lacing. The nose picks up an abundance of deep roasted coffee chocolate malt and sea foam piney hops. Scrumptious! The flavor delivers a unique seaweed malt and light coffee with creamy milk chocolate. It has a slight mineral water quality mixed in as well. Quite unusual but it includes a solid pine bite that's a tad funky. The body is medium at least but it has a fairly quiet, almost aqueous feel with a very delicate/ gentle carbonation. One of my favorite styles and a more than solid entry here.

Pours pitch black with a finger length mocha colored head that went away fairly slowly and left a thin ring of lacing. Nice balance in the aroma for a black ipa, but not overpowering at all. Get floral and faint pine notes from the hops, while also getting lots of roasted malts, licorice, and some dark chocolate notes. Nice balance in the taste as well. Starts with floral notes, some orange, pine. Then a burst of roasted malts come through and mix with the hop flavors. Start to get dark chocolate notes as well. The finish is a great balance of hoppy and roasty flavors. More of the floral, orange, and pine along with roasted malts and creamy dark chocolate. Get some ashy/smokey flavors as well. Do get that belgian flavor from the malts, but it is minimal and adds to the complexity of the beer. High medium body with a really nice creamy mouthfeel. Somewhat clean on the finish too: no resinous hop oils left behind. I thought this was an outstanding example of what a black ipa should be. Definitely hoppy, but incorporated with a hefty dose of roasted, dark malts nicely. Greenbush continues to impress.

12oz. bottle poured into a pint glass.

(A)- Pours practically pitch black in color. Produced a great 3+ finger tan fluffy head that stuck around for quite awhile before dissipating. Plenty of lacing left behind too.

(S)- Some dry roasted malts and bits of citrus overall; honestly, it is a bit muted.

(T)- A nice combination of dry roasted baked bread meets a blast of lemon lime and pineapple citrus.

(M)- A nice smooth carbonation level meets a nice balanced mouthfeel overall. The dry roasted malts help cut the bitterness from the hops while the citrus is free to shine.

(O)- A pretty solid Black IPA. Often times I feel some of this are just too much like a hoppy porter or stout, but this one is well balanced and well-made enough to fit the style.
