Beer is a hazy copper color. Very low hop aroma for a double IPA. More malty than a typical DIPA. Overall a very balanced beer. I prefer my DIPA more on the hoppy side.

Not much going on here. 72 IBUs usually departs hippiness and bitterness, not here.

I wouldnít call this a double IPA so do not be intimidated by the title. Itís a mild IPA at best. Light hop aroma which continues through to the flavor. A little bit of skunk.

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.

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.

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.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
