1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
tap sampler in Troy, MI. Poured clear amber with a small off-white head. Floral hoppy aroma. Medium mouthfeel, average carbonation, not too dry but it does linger. Fruity malt flavour with some tart citrus hops.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
20oz tap..probably closer to 16oz poured. Unfiltered orange-tan, big steady beige head. Classic English hop aroma. Rather watery in body, thin and lacking depth. Toasty, mellow citrus hop balance. Tastes like the mall IPA it is, pretty unimpressive.

Tried at Granite City Brewery in Kansas City. Part of a flight. Found all of the beers to be watered down and mediocre at best.

Tap at Granite City Wichita, the nose is surprisingly good, but the taste is malt forward and malt dominated.

Bottle pour at a Twins game. I think the biggest characteristic of this beer is balance - even for an IPA.
