In this beer blog, we are going to sample another brew, which is Dunegräs India Pale Ale, from Greenbush Brewery. If you read my earlier beer blog posts about their beers, you know the history of this west side Michigan craft brewery. If you have not, please, read those beer blog posts to get to know this craft brewery. Let us get into this India Pale Ale.
It has a dark copper color to light amber with a constant white head. The aroma has a slight floral to citrus notes. The taste has a light carbonation with a sweet notes to citrus like notes towards the middle of the drinking experience. The dry bitter hop aftertaste at end. It is kind of drinkable to a nice sipping beer.
Here is a description from the beer bottle:
Here at Greenbush we’ve always known that good ideas often start over beer. We also know that there’s nothing like taking a good idea too far. You’re reading this, so you must be one of us. Enjoy the first step in taking your own idea too far.
Here is a description from their website (www.greenbushbrewing.com):
A justly hopped india pale ale with absolutely no dunegrass.
Combining west coast and noble hops, we created our own IPA with a shining finish. And as an environmental treat, absolutely no dunegrass was killed in order to make our fine beer, so drink up!

Closing, I have had several of their brews. This one was pretty good and I did enjoyed drinking it. I have to say I was a little disappointed compared to rest of their beers. This beer is still a great beer. I love two out of four of hops that they use in this brew. I do not know why I am pretty disappointed with this beer but it is still good. I guess every craft breweries has that beer in their line up. This beer is the weakest in their line up but this beer could be some craft breweries best beer. This Michigan craft brewery makes some great beers. I recommend this beer and I want to hear your thoughts. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
