2.64/5  rDev -19.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

I had no idea Granite City even bottled... Anyway, this stuff pours a clear amber-copper topped by a finger of off-cream foam. The nose comprises perfume-y flowers, light toffee, light menthol, and a hint of pine resin. The taste brings in more of the same, emphasizing the menthol and adding in some eucalyptus, making it seem as though I'm drinking some sort of Vicks Vap-O-Rub beer or something. (Note to Sam: DO NOT DO THIS!) The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, a pretty weak IPA, English or otherwise, one that just plain doesn't taste all that good.
