Tap at GC in Eagan, MN. Bright golden orange pour with a small spotty white head. Some pine and citrus aroma - not bad. Palate is pretty thin and there isnít much richness to the taste. Just okay.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Reviewed from notes. Consumed June 9, 2013 as I was driving across country.
The appearance is a orange/brown colored body with a one finger white foamy head that dies within thirty seconds, a moderate amount of lacing is left. The aroma - well, its definitely a malt forward DIPA, strong all the way through, hops barely play any sort of balance. The taste is mainly sweet through the malts, sweet aftertaste, dry sticky finish. On the palate, she sits about a medium, maybe sessionable - perhaps, carbonation seems a bit undercarbonated for the style, but pretty good to me as it leads to a very smooth texture, ABV is not felt. Overall, well, the best thing about this beer is the palate as it demonstrates a pretty good smoothness that isnít usually felt among most DIPAís, but everything else is mostly just average, unsure if I would have this again.

12/22/2013: Granite City Batch 1,000... This is the typical over-done citrus Imperial IPA. Itís okay, but lacks depth, bitterness, and anything unique. It goes down smoothly, but doesnít leave me wanting for more. Draught at Granite City in Maumee, Ohio. Rating #32 for this beer.

Stinks. Fruity. No lacing. Not bitter at all. Really weak for an ipa, nonetheless a double.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: toast, resin, basement aromas,
Appearance: golden, amber, clear, frothy,
Taste: light sweetness, very bitter, medium sourness, umami,
Palate: light body, thin feel, fizzy, lively, bitter, long finish,
Overall I thought this beer was one of the better ones that Granite City had. I really love IPAs and really liked this one even though the depth of the flavor profile wasnít a deep as I would have liked.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
It poured a clear copper color with a white head. The aroma was moderate to heavy complex citrus hops and some earthiness. It had a medium body with thick slick texture and soft carbonation. The taste was medium to heavy bittersweet with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. One of the better beers GC offers.

Batch 1000 should be something better than this flavored water. Beautiful color and the beautiful lacing are about the only thing going for this. I am surprised to see it served in a nice glass! -granite city Mishawaka.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rated on 12-07-2009 at Granite City (Fort Wayne, IN) (Draft) This draft beer pours a small ivory head with a good retention, transparent body, fair amount of lacing, and an amber hue. The Aroma is malt, hops, grapefruit and citrus. The Taste is very hoppy, bitter, citrus, caramel, and malty. The Palate is smooth and creamy and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, this beer is very hoppy as it should be for the style, boozy at 9% ABV, and is one of their beer tasting beers that I have rated.
