2.96/5  rDev -15.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: Pours with a light to medium bodied thickness. Brownish orange color to the beer. Pours with a massive head that would dissipate but was present throughout. The beer has a merky, dirty water clearness.

Smell: A grassy, earthy font on the nose. Light bubbly hop presence. Slight caramelized body which gives this beer a rounded aroma. Not too much depth, but interesting enough to keep you coming back.

Taste: A buttery malt from hits the palette first. I wish it was more pronounced, sort of nonchalantly drifts along. A malty body mixes with the grassy, earthy hop tones which lingers on the palette very shortly. Light dry finish, goes down very easily.

Mouthfeel: Light malty sweetness. Doesn't kill the palette.

Overall: Not a bad brew, one of the better ones I've had from Granite City. Their beers for the most part come off below to average. Gotta get my money's worth out of this growler though.

A clear dark copper in color, this brew develops a soft, fluffy head just under a finger tall. Retention is pretty good and some spotty lacing is left on the glass.
The aroma and flavor show the typical profile of a brewery that typically brews all their beers lightly. Touted as a DIPA, it's almost a stretch to call it an IPA. Hoppiness is there, and the hops used seem good and to make a fairly complex mix of floral, herbal and citrus, but I've had hoppier pale ales for sure. Malts also add good balance. This is a gateway DIPA for sure, or one for people who need to ease their way into flavor.
This is also fairly light-bodied, although it does reach about medium. There's enough crispness and smoothness to keep it interesting and it flows nicely. It could use more heft, but I don't see much more by way of flaw.
All in all, where it counts, Batch 1000 is an average DIPA.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

ST: On Tap

A: Darker cloudy look with a light brown hue to it.

S: Small hint of citrus and pine. Very light aroma; not aggressive

T: Like the aroma, hints of light citrus and pine with a clean finish. Hides the 9% abv very well.

MF: Clean feel with a good dry hop flavor at the beginning. Lingers a little then slowly disappears.

O: For a Granite City beer, I am impressed. I personally think its more of a IPA rather a Double IPA, but then again it is my opinion. If you see it, give it a try.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Appearance - opaque amber, lite Holden head, minimal lacing

Smell - lite pine, grapefruit and Carmel

Taste - light grapefruit and pine, slight herbals and basil

Mouthfeel - lighter side of medium, seems too lite for a DIPA, crisp edges

Overall - drinks like a single ipa, not bad, but would not order again.

3.2/5  rDev -9.1%
look: 5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A - A thick, frothy and solid head with great stamina. The body is a deep yet translucent orange.

S - Orange and pineappel hops are present.

T - Orange and slightly grapefruited hops with a moderate malty sweetness.

M - It offers a warming sensation about halfway through each pull. It has a coarseness near the back of my throa that's common amongst IPAs.

~ Its an oka drink but nothing I would seek out in the future or recommend that a friend must try. Either way the beer was a good dinner beverage.

pours out of the growler a turbid bronze colour with a thin slim head, egg shell white in colour. a good deal of citric zest in the aroma, with a solid brown sugary maltiness to back it up. the taste profile renews the sum of the nose, in that there is a rather pedestrian citric zing on the tongue; built up by a base maltiness equally boring and semi sweet. anonymous pith provides a slap of bitterness to quell any residuals. a peek of alcohol spice rides the finish into the sunset without much fanfare. a rather mundane tasting IPA or DIPA . What gives this offering a bit of depth is the girthy body, round and supple complimenting the sticky yet smooth mouthfeel. so thumbs up for that. as for being drinkable? it sure is. an easy, albeit larger, IPA/DIPA meant to open an evening and appetite.

overall, this really is a type of beer to pair with a meal or appetizers. the alcohol is prevalent yet well integrated into the innocuous taste profile. it paves the way without paving you over. i'd definitely drink this again in the restaurant, and for $11/2L, makes for a fair priced growler.
