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 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/

Cheers!

Closing, I really enjoyed this beer but towards the end of this 12oz pour. I was forcing myself to finish it.  The boozy notes in the beer just over takes everything.  Please, do not take this the wrong way.  I really did like this beer but I cannot get through another 12oz pour. I could share a 12oz bottle. There is some notes rye spice that blends nicely but fate with the bourdon notes.  I can see people that will love this beer and others will not like and/or hate it.  If you see this beer on draft, try it.  I recommend it.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/

Cheers!

New Beer Blog Greenbush Pete’s Red Hot


image

While at Ashley’s Westland, we are going to sample Pete’s Red Hot from Greenbush Brewery.  Yes, it is a winter warmer.  It is rare to see a nice winter ale in the middle of the summer.  If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this western Michigan craft brewery.  If you have not, please, read them to get to know Greenbush Brewery.  Let us get into this winter warmer.

This winter warmer has a dark amber to redish brown color with a constant slightly off white to a light tan color head.  It has a slight smell of malt to other spices notes.  The taste has a light carbonation malty notes with other spices like nutmeg to cinnamon.  The aftertaste has a dry bitter hop finish.  It is a nice sipping beer for winter that can be kind of drinkable beer.

In closing, I did not realize what I order until it came to me.  I was not expecting to see a winter seasonal on tap at Ashley’s.  This is brew is one of their anniversity beers that some craft breweries did for them last year.  I guess they had a keg left over.  I am not complaining.  This is a great beer and I wish they would package this beer.  This beer has a ton of flavor with a full body.  If you have not had this beer, I recommend you getting up to Ashley’s to try it.  It will be gone here soon.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/

Cheers!

New Beer Blog Greenbush Brewery PHD Malt Liquor


image

While at Ashley’s Westland, it was the champion throw down and opening day for their patio.  I had PhD Malt Liquor from Greenbush Brewery.  If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this Michigan craft brewery.  If you have not, please, read them to get to know this Greenbush Brewery.  Let us get into this Malt Liquor.

It has a cloudy golden color with a constant white head.  There is some smell but pretty fate.  I cannot make it out.  The taste has a sweet malty with a light carbonation corn frosted flake notes.  The aftertaste is a slight alcohol bites but finish a little clean.

Here is their website and twitter addresses:

In the end, yep, it is what you are reading.  This is a craft brewery that made a malt liquor beer.  I was pretty excited to try it.  I drink every type of beer.  I might not like it but I will try it at least once or twice.  I have to say I was pretty impressed by it.  This is a better version of the mainstream malt liquors like Colt 45 to Steel Reserve.  I love how it is sweeter than the mainstream malt liquor.  I bet I will not get the pounding headache like the mainstream ones give the beer drinker.  I did like this beer but I could not finish.  It was too much in a 16oz pour.  I would have it again in a 10oz to 12oz pour. I believe you would have to make a trip to their brewpub to get this beer.  I recommend it if you want something different.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/

Cheers!

It has a cloudy amber color with a white constant head on this Imperial IPA.  The smell is a sweet citrus and piney notes.  The taste has citrus and hints of creamy honey notes.  The aftertaste is dry hop finish.  It is pretty drinkable beer.

In the end, I have had several different India Pale Ales and Imperial India Pale Ales brew with honey.  I have to say this one was one of the best one on market.  It is one of the best that is brewed in the State of Michigan.  They did a great job on the malty backbone.  I love the hops they used on this brew and the honey cuts through the hops to balance it.  This is a great beer and I will be hunting down more of this product.  Thanks again Jay for the share.  I recommend this brew.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/
