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.

Dark orange almost red color. Draft at Granite City in Rockford. Pine and fruit aroma. Hoppy and mild bitter, citrus. Better than I expected

kramer (6476) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 8, 2017
Pours a hazy copper body with a one finger foamy beige head. The nose is citrusy hops, with some caramel and toasted malt. Flavor wise, the hop level doesnt reach DIPA levels in the slightest. This is all about the caramel malt sweetness, which doesnt really work for me. Medium bodied with a light touch of alcohol, soft fizzy carbonation and a lingering toasted malt finish. Pretty bad try at a DIPA.

Draft at source. Nose is moderate citrus with mostly orange. Light bread in the aroma. Hazy orange with white head that laces well. Taste follows with a medium mouthfeel. Needs more hops in every aspect.

darb85 (250) - Canton, Michigan, USA - APR 2, 2016
UPDATED: APR 4, 2016 Pine notes on nose. Clear Amber pour, 1 finger thin head. Strong booze lead. With cedar and grass in the make, dry finish. Not great but not terrible. Not a great example of a dipa

On tap to pint. Pours hazy copper, white sticky head. Aroma of caramel an sweet malts. Taste of malts. Big grain bill. Subtle hop citrus pine for a DIPA. Fail in my book.

Batch 1000 is an easy drinking version of a DIPA. The nose come across as very fresh with sugary orange and pineapple, and light pine resin. An ample sweet malt backbone is tempered with bittering hops that depart cleanly in a flavorful finish that doesnt leave a lot of residual bitterness, but rather a pleasant light sweet fruitiness. Pours light caramel color with a 1 finger white head. Its not trying to armwrestle other bigger DIPAs and it doesnt have to. This is a one for the hop heads who have realized that 100 IBU juggernauts are not always the best approach.
