chucklemation (489) - Pontiac, Michigan, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Pours a murky copper with a white foam head. Aroma is citrus hops. Flavor is the same, with plenty of dry bitterness. I thought this was better than the rating. A solid ipa.

DuffMan (6802) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 1, 2014
On tap @ the Granite City Food & Beer in the Indianapolis airport, concourse A. Light amber, thin off-white head. Aroma is caramel and light cooked peaches. Sweet caramel with a moderate aspirin bitterness. Not great.

Tap, coppery golden color with a white head, seemed more like a pale ale to me than an IPA, either way it wasn’t very good.

Really light for an ipa. Pretty lame. Grapefruit. Copper. No body. Not too hoppy.

Reviewed from notes. Consumed June 9th, 2013. The appearance is a golden/somewhat amber colored body with a moderate amount of carbonation that is seen rising, one finger white foamy head, light lacing surrounding the glass. The aroma has a strong malty presence up front with some hops trying to make a strong secondary take, but mainly stay subdued. The taste is sweet through the malts, sweet sticky aftertaste and finish. On the palate, its about a light to medium, somewhat sessionable, carbonation seems to be right on for the style and for me. Overall, is this really an EIPA, really? uh... ok, well, I thought it was more of an EPA, not bad, not spectacular, but hey, I’d probably have again.

Draft clear golden. Nose most malt. Taste malt sweet followed by bitterness. Not very aromatic or flavorful. Some bitter finish.

Ed5388 (2116) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - AUG 11, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a clear copper color with a thick foamy off white head. Aroma of sweet malts and faint earthy hops. Taste was thin, caramel malt, earthy, and not much bitterness.

Another "bad batch" beer this July 4th. Decided to try this after the Batch 1000 DIPA sucked. SUCKER - this is the BASE of the DIPA....oops. This one actually sucked less, with a tiny hint of hops trying to get through, but failing miserably. On tap at Granite City, Orland Park, IL. Yuck.
