The appearance is a golden/somewhat amber colored body with a moderate amount of carbonation that is seen rising, one finger white foamy head, light lacing surrounding the glass. The aroma has a strong malty presence up front with some hops trying to make a strong secondary take, but mainly stay subdued. The taste is sweet through the malts, sweet sticky aftertaste and finish. On the palate, its about a light to medium, somewhat sessionable, carbonation seems to be right on for the style and for me. Overall, is this really an English IPA, really? Seemed more of an English pale ale to me.

On tap at a Granite City location. Not doing a full review because the beer isn't in front of me, just some notes. Not much hops smell or taste, and the hop profile is more traditional pine than new school citrus. Plenty of malt backbone, but overall a but muddled in execution. Medioce at best

This site calls it an IPA, but Granite City says it's a Pale Ale. I'd lean toward the pale ale.... it's not bad. I'd have it again.

Pours a light orange with a two finger fluffy cream color head. Aroma is caramel, biscuit, and some hop balance. Taste is really malty, mostly caramel, biscuit, and bread/cracker. Mouthfeel is medium. Overall, a very malty pale ale that is confused between english and American, and could actually use a touch thinner mouthfeel.

From a tap at the Indy Airport. Pretty flat, minimal taste for an IPA. No real aroma. Pretty lackluster all around
