The copper color of this India Pale Ale hints at the strong malt character needed to support the huge hoppy flavors and defining bitterness of this classic beer.

Aroma: resin, floral, citrus, clove, licorice.
Appearance: amber, clear, frothy, white foam nice lacing.
Taste: light sweetness, medium to high bitterness.
Palate: medium body, slick feel, average carbonation, bitter, long finish.
Overall: really nice IPA. When I went to dinner I was looking for an amber but chose this instead. It went well with a blue cheese burger and I am glad I chose this.

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.
