Draft. Pours orange with thin white head that is thin but dissipates. Medium carbonation with mild hop aroma. Mildish ipa hop flavor with little complexity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kevinsenn (1054) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 17, 2013
On cask at Goose Island Clybourn. Clear amber with a foamy head. Fruity (tropical and citrus) aroma, with grainy malt. Taste: grainy bready malts, bright fruity notes. Creamy with a mildly bitter finish. Wonderful cask creaminess. A perfectly good IPA.

My notes from this review appear to have been written while I "was in a drunken stupor". Prize to the first person who can guess the name of my mayor & what he smokes. It appears I really liked it, but the sentence "tasty peachy tutu hop delight" makes me a tad nervous. Please send me sample so i can properly rerate

Draft taster at brewpub pours dark golden. Nose good pine and resin hop. Taste grapefruit big bitter bite. Some floral, high palate bitter, and fleeting sweet malt. Bitter finish.

Poured from a bottle golden orange with very light head. Typical ipa with bitter aftertaste

commonmac (292) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 5, 2013
Tap pour at Maxwell’s. Hoping this is the right beer as the tap handle was vague. From the start something seems off about this IPA. Smells funny and taste eerily sweet which is not expected. There is some bitterness but just doesn’t taste up to par with what Goose Island normally produces. Maybe an old keg but in general a bad option.

DocJitsu (898) - Florida, USA - OCT 4, 2013
Pours a clear brown golden color with an antique white, short (improperly poured) head. Mild citrus hard candy bouquet. Mildly crisp mouthfeel. Good balance of malt against the citrus hop. Solid.
