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.

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.

On tap at Greenbush.

A- Came to me a hazed golden copper color. One finger off-white head shows good retention. Lacing is shown off in a couple different sticky layers as I drink this one down.

S- Citrus hops shine right off the get go in the aroma with this beer. Light caramel malts shine between blasts of citrus hops. Underlying greeny bittering hops throughout the entire beer really show up toward the end as a dominating aroma. More toffee/caramel malts in the ending as well.

T- Light citrus hops and heavier handed earthy bittering hops come out the flavor gate first. This is quickly toned down by a caramel bready malt. The hops don't seem to pick back up from this hit but balance out the malt from here to the finish. Light bittering hops in the backend give a little bit more of a push off the malt but not too far.

M- Medium mouthfeel. Carbonation is good for the beer. Light leafy hops and lots of caramel malts are left on the palate. Aftertaste is light alcohol, caramel malts, and hints of citrus and earthy hops. No off flavors were present while I was drinking this beer. Medium alcohol drying on the palate with each sip.

O- This beer has been a lot better in the past when I have had it. There is something alittle off I thought and will review it when I get another chance. A overall better than average IPA except this past time I had it.

A- Pours a slightly hazy copper with one finger of head. Nice lacing.

S -- Big citrus aroma, both orange pulp and a bit of grapefruit. Also some caramel malt. Nice.

T -- Similar to smell, nice citrus burst up front. Not overly bitter , but a decent bitterness throughout. Enough caramel malt to balance, but not too malty.

M -- Medium mouthfeel with nice amount of carbonation that gives some creaminess.

O -- Enjoyable IPA. Solid all around, and something I would have again, but not amazing.

Served on-tap in a branded Tripel Karmeliet tulip at Randy Melnick’s Corner Tap (Chicago, IL).

A: Amber-lemonade hue with short, 1-finger of quickly fading head with several residual layers of lacing (3.5).

S: A nice combination of lighter toffee sweetness matched with leafy, herbal, resiny, and lemon-orange citrus hops (4)

T: The toffee comes through a bit stronger in the flavor and dampens the hoppiness to some degree. The hops stick pack some power, but it is most in early bitterness of leafy, resiny, citrus flavor that unfortunately doesn’t quite hit that sharp bitterness in the finish. I think more focus on lighter caramel malts might help to allow the hopping more room to blitz the palate. The bitterness is more flat and less crisp than it could be (3.5).

M: Somewhat sticky but not overly heavy, very smooth and drinkable with moderate carbonation (4)

O: A nice brew from the Chicago area that I am glad I got the opportunity to try. Its fresh hops flavor is there but a little less crystal malt sweetness with just the same body would given the hops more space to shine. (3.5)

This is a nice IPA. Nothing that jumps out and makes it special, but definitly a decent IPA.

The beer pours a dark golden color with off-white head.

Floral and citrus hops dominate the aroma.

Taste is hoppy. Nice american IPA. Bitter and floral. Citrus tones are presant. Caramel malts really balance out the flavor.

Good beer.

AAfter studying on Friday night Halloween weekend me and my girlfriend decided to grab a quick beer at Crunchy's in East Lansing. Lo and behold the have GREENBUSH!

notes from cell phone yesterday.

A&S: smell is sweet citrus hops and sweet malts. No head! No head from the very beginning, there is a ring of off white head. Hazy dark orange colored beer, no carbonation bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass.

T&M: very smooth going down, moderately hopped: a mixture of piney and citrus, but the hops are mostly floral. The beer is pretty well rounded with a pleasant malty background. More piney in the burp very. not much bitterness right away, but it becomes steadily more and more bitter as you restrain yourself from drinking it. low carbonation and medium bodied.

O: After being super pumped about this beer it kind of was disappointed compared to the other two beers I’ve tried from them. I NEED to come back to Crunchy’s this week and try some more Greenbush beers.

Poured from growler into english pint glass.

Pours a nice deep copper golden color. Appears lightly carbonated (I poured vigorously and got little to no head). As stated, almost no head. Light lacing.

Aroma is typical for an american ipa. Some lightly sweet malt in the background. Featured are the various hops. This one is a balance between floral and citrus hops.

Taste matches the aroma very well. Leading taste is the citrus hops which is quickly overpowered by a more floral, bitter, hop bite. Integrated with this is a nice sweet caramel malt flavor that complements very well.

Mouthfeel is pretty nice. Light carbonation which is ok with me. Nice medium body. Sticky hops.

Overall this is a real nice, well balanced ipa. Could see myself drinking this on a regular basis. Nice aroma and taste, just could use some more head I think.
