Came to me in a mug club mug with about an inch of off white/wheat colored head above a cloudy rich honey golden colored beer.

Distinct hops aroma that had a slight sourness to it.

Hops dominate the taste with hints of light grain malts, maybe grapefruit.

A nice light dry aftertaste with a little hops taste in it.

A pretty darn good medium bodied double IPA.

Had on tap last night a couple different times at Granite City. Review from phone notes.

A- Poured a clear darker orange/amber color. One and a half finger bone white head sticks around for a short period before dying down to nothing. Leaves some skirted lacing on the sides for the entire glass. First beer here that actually impresses me in apperance.

S- Big citrus hops come first (pineapple and orange). Some bitter hops come through as well but play a background roll in the aroma. Some sweeter malts come into play in the tail end of the nose with a sweetbread kind of aroma. This is mostly hops in this beer. Quite surprised!

T- Citrus hops clash with the bittering hops right off the bat in this beer. Light sweet malts come into play midway through the beer balancing it all out. Ending of this beer is a little more bitter than the front of the beer. Every good tasting.

M- Medium mouthfeel to this. Carbonation is good for the beer style. Citrus hops roll around the bitter hops on the palate and aftertaste long after a sip is taken. Crisp in the taste. Everything zings around on the palate.

D- This is the first beer I had from Granite City that I feel they actually took the time with and made right. To be honest I didn't expect much and came out of there with a smile on my face. I will be back before it's taken off of tap that is for sure!

Up front I'll confess this is the best beer I've ever had at Granite City. I find most of their beers to be average. But, this one came out with a clear, dark, amber body and big fluffy tan head. Lots of nice lacing on the glass.

Great citrusy hop aroma, with just a hint of floral notes in the mix. Pale malt in the background.

Good bitter hop flavor up front and bit of sweet malt in the balance. Very drinkable beer. If they made more like this, I'd frequent the establishment more often.

Served in 20oz shaker.
This was an enjoyable beer.
Cloudy dark yellow to gold. Foamy head that in time left.
Nice pleasant citrus hop aroma. Not very complex, but pleasant.
Reasonably complex taste with good hop flavors, a solid pale malt background and a nice shot of bitterness on the finish.
Enough heft to the body to make it at least moderate in feel.
Very drinkable. A little amping of alcohol, just enough to notice. Seems like a slightly big Am IPA as much as a DIPA. Either way, best beer I've had at this establishment and certainly good enough for another.
