The appearance is a orange/brown colored body with a one finger white foamy head that dies within thirty seconds, a moderate amount of lacing is left. The aroma - well, its definitely a malt forward DIPA, strong all the way through, hops barely play any sort of balance. The taste is mainly sweet through the malts, sweet aftertaste, dry sticky finish. On the palate, she sits about a medium, maybe sessionable - perhaps, carbonation seems a bit undercarbonated for the style, but pretty good to me as it leads to a very smooth texture, ABV is not felt. Overall, the world is flooded by DIPA's so with this one, well, I really don't see much of a need to re-visit.

This beer pours an amberish color. The head is white and 1 finger when poured from the growler. The nose is mildly pine smelling. The taste is very mild, almost bland. There's a slight hop bitterness, but it's so slight. Somewhat wattery feeling. For the price - $5 for a growler fill, I'd say it was worth it, otherwise, not so much.

Hardly any hop bitter tingling flavor, very watered down, not only do I not believe its abv is 9% but i don't believe it's above 6.5. No flavor, mildly citrus, very flat.

Served in a flute glass from the tap at Granite City Brewing.

Appearance: Semi cloudy Amber with medium to heavy bubbles.

Smell: Sour scent of lemon skin.

Taste: Bitter hops and easy malts. Very floral and has descent pine notes.

Mouth: Medium to heavy bubbles and very full bodied brew.

Overall: Desdent brew, not the best IPA but definitely one that is good enough to satisfy the palates. Salud.

On tap at a Granite City location. This one is a bit of a malt bomb for me. All sweet malt, not much in the way of flavor or aroma hops. Alcohol content relatively well hidden. Decent, but not worth seeking out

2.74/5: Lots of caramel and lots of flavorless bitterness puts this squarely in Mediocreville
