Notes: 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.

stayed just across the street from Granite City , had to give them a try.

A: hazy amber brew with SUPER LACING. nice 1 finger head settled quick.

S nice pine hoppiness

T: classic IPA flavor - nice bitterness

M: medium body: no ABV bite.

D: great for an IPA!!! I seriously expect this is the best at Granite City. strong hoppiness prevents mega drinkablility though.

ADDENDUM:
found out later, this comes in at 5.2% ABV and
FIFTY-SIX IBU's!!! just FYI

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.
