Cask @ Goose Island: Bright & clear amber body. Great clarity with a thin, fine-bubbled frothy, bright white soap that sits on top forever. Gotta love the cask heads. Aroma of sweet grapefruit peel, burnt sugar cookies, mild peppery spice, tangerine, & lots of caramalt. Smells good, but a bit sweet. Warm, smooth flavor from the cask. Nice body. Caramel malt all over the joint. Baked dough, grapefruit flesh, candied orange peel, zesty citrus notes, moderate herbal hops, a touch of floral bitterness, & a bit of toasted malt in the finish. Slightly earthy. Finishes mostly with a body of malty sweetness, edging on caramel. Not bad at all, but I rarely fall in love with caramel & sweet malt laden IPAs.

On tap. Golden with white head. Smell is hoppy citrus and fruit. Taste is sweet malty with bread and hoppy citrus. Smell is better than the taste. Semi dry with medium bitterness and medium carbonation.

Draft at the Goose Island brewery. What a shit hole. Pours a golden yellow. Nose has tropical fruits. Taste is pretty fruit driven and a tad watery. Not too bad. A little watery on the palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

weordie (106) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2014
The aroma is the best part of the beer, it is a lovely citrus scent. The beer pours a nice golden colour, a sharp hoppy initial taste with a citrusy after taste

Yum yum. A cloudy American IPA with a strong fruity citrus hop flavour. Slightly bitter finish. Really really good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
