Had at their St Cloud Mn location. A very good IPA. Has a deep dark cooper appearance - spongy white head with good lacing. Good grapfruit citrus aroma and bittersweet flavor - detect some Cascades in there. Best of my visit to Granite City - had a pint after the sampler.

Skyview (5150) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - FEB 13, 2008
On draught during the Winterfest 2008 in downtown St. Paul, Minnesota. Pours a semi-hazy golden amber brew with a thick off-white head that quickly dissipates clean. Aroma of citrus zest, a touch of grapefruit and some bread malt. Taste is well-carbonated, light to medium bodied, a very one dimensional flavor of miild citrus zest, with hardly any light malt flavors. Finish is slightly watery, along with a mild citrus aftertaste. Maybe this could be considered as a light American Pale Ale but not a West Coast caliper IPA that I am used to.

heemer77 (5096) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - APR 30, 2005
Sampled at the Cedar Rapids location. Traces of a thin head with a light amber colored body. The aroma is light citrus and hay. The taste is smooth grapefruit and light oak. This is a decent version of an English style IPA.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 21, 2009
Omaha. Copper color with a small off-white head. Citric hops and bit of caramel malt in the nose. Flavors start with a bit of malt and brown sugar. Middle has some pine and grapefruit. A touch earthy. Finish and linger are earthy and slightly bitter.

thedm (4920) - Fort Wayne, USA - FEB 17, 2008
This draft brew from our new restaurant/brewery in Fort Wayne, IN poured a head of finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a and a poor lacing. The nice aroma was of piney hops. The semi-thick mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The mild flavor contained notes of malt and piney hops. A decent one but not one that I would consider buying again.

kramer (4856) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 25, 2009
On tap, Maumee OH location. Pours a slightly hazy copper-orange body with a minimal off-white head. Some grapefruity hops over a light caramel malt base on the nose. The flavor is light citrusy and floral hops over a thin caramel malt base. A little sticky and clingy with soft carbonation. Probably the best of the 7 beers that I had that night, but that’s not really saying much.

Strykzone (4781) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAR 14, 2008
Caramel color. Faint hop aroma but lots of hop flavor. Some caramel malt for balance.

Growler sample. Pours clear amber with a medium beige head. Malty aroma with some hop. Mostly malt flavor with some earthy hops on the back end.

Pours a hazy orange with a medium creamy white head that laced. Aroma of pine, grapefruit and spicy hop notes. Flavor of mixed citrus, pine and cereal grains.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUL 8, 2007
Draught sample at the St Louis Park MN location, RBSG Minneapolis weekend, June 23 2007. Light, clear amber with just a bit of foam and faint lacing....fresh, clean, simple citrusy aroma, just a touch buttery but all right....bitter, light brown-sugary up front, but the light malts don’t support the hops and at the end it’s just dry, bitter, and papery.
