Single finger head with amazing retention and nice lacing on a murky golden with amber hues body. Aroma of toasted malts, and hop varieties including earthy, mild citrus and floral. Flavors of toasted caramel malts, tart citrus, light pine resin and grassy hops. Medium body and moderate carbonation. A nice IPA. Not memorable or complex but a nice traditional member of the style.

On tap at Headquarters, served in a footed tulip glass. Copper orange color, slightly hazy, but bright when held to the light. An initial fingers width of foam, settling down to a broken skim and ring around the edges after a few sips.

Resiny pine and caramel malt aromas, pretty solid and standard for an IPA. Taste has more dry resiny hop bitterness, piney with some sweet caramel and bready malt notes in the middle. Finishes dry. Medium bodied with an even level of carbonation. A firm bitterness level, mildly sweet middle, dry finish. Pretty textbook IPA that satisfies the hop craving.

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass; no bottle dating, but was released recently. Pours hazy golden orange color with a nice 2 finger dense and fluffy cream colored head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of big tangerine, pineapple, orange zest, grapefruit, lemon zest, floral, pine, caramel, honey, and light bread. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of hop notes with good malt balance. Taste of tangerine, pineapple, orange zest, lemon zest, grapefruit, light pine, floral, caramel, light honey, and light bread. Moderate citrus bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, citrus zest, pineapple, light pine, floral, caramel, light honey, and light bread on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance and complexity of hop flavors; with a nice moderate malt balance; and zero cloying flavors present after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly creamy and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with pretty much zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice IPA. Great hop complexity and balance of flavors; and extremely smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Thanks to Wendall for this one!

A: Pours a dark copper color with some ruby tint to it. Small off-white head with little retention, reducing to a thin cap on top. Thin lacing forms around the entire glass.

S: A little on the weak side with some floral/grassy hops, a little bit of orange, and some caramel.

T: Some citrus fruits up front, mostly orange and a little lemon peal, slightly bitter. The second wave is full of bready and caramel malt.

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Slightly dry finish.

O: A middle of the road IPA. Better than average, but probably wouldn't be my go to.

12 oz. bottle poured into a tumbler.

Appearance - Copper body. Nice big white head with great lacing. Excellent retention.

Smell - Grassy and piney. Some caramel and bready malts.

Taste - Grassy hops. Gets a little spicy, even. Bready malt with just a hint of sweetness. Aggressively grassy and bitter. Just a hint of citrus in the back end.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. A little creamy. Medium carbonation.

Overall - The hop profile isn't my thing, but every other part hits the spot.

The Dunegras fro the Bush is decent. I would classify it as a Belgian ipa. The beer poured a clear copper with white head that left a nice lace. The scent was definitely Belgian leaning. The taste was nicely balanced with Belgian sugar/malt present.the m outhfeel is medium in body with good carbonation. Overall this beer is sessionable and I would recommend it.

On-tap at Greenbush, although I sampled this at Haymarket a few weeks ago too. Served in a 6oz taster glass.

A - Finger of foam settles to a thin near-complete cap and thick collar, leaving behind a touch of lacing. Hazy bronze body.

S - Malt-foward, with a very icing sugar bent to it. Some grass and herb hop flavors, as well as a light touch of citrus.

T - The combo of icing sugar and orange citrus is evocative of creamsicles. However, this is marred by a mildly astringent herbal finish and mounting bitterness that is surprising and unexpected.

M - Zesty carbonation, dry finish, chewy texture, and plenty of slick tooth-coating hop oils and resins. Medium body that is plenty hefty for the listed ABV.

D - A very East Coast American IPA, with a bit too much bitterness to it. Decent, but not an IPA I'd have regularly. I'm getting the feeling that Greenbush's forté is darker beers.
