If you were looking for a double IPA that does absolutely nothing for hopheads except leave a vague ghostly hop cloud in your mouth, head down to your local Granite City (TM), flip open to their "Beer-Flavored Water Drinks" section, and order up a cold glass of Batch 1000. The fine folks that work there will describe to you exactly what your suppose to taste, so when you buy your 30 dollar Granite City (TM) take-home growler, you can explain to your landlord why the rent's going to be a few days late.

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.

just a really bad interpretation of what a DIPA should be, a DIPA in ABV only, it was a cloying sweet mess of a beer. it was just way too hot and sweet to be enjoyable, save the $7 on tap and avoid it like the plague.

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

was expecting a little more hop from this DIPA but too much malt IMO.

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.

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

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.
