Aroma is strong and fruity with a decided woody, hoppy overtone and a firm note of - resin? It pours a pretty clear gold with a very thick, fluffy, fine-bubbled and quite persistent head that leaves a ton of lacing. Malty, fruity flavor has woody, hoppy and resiny notes with hints of apple, banana and butterscotch. Must be butterscotch. Smooth, firm-bodied texture has good fizz and leaves a woody, fruity tingle. Demolish one today!

22 oz bottle from drfabulous. Thanks Jeff! Pours hazy golden with a bright white head. Smells bready and yeasty and a touch of fruit, more like light or white/green fruits than dark fruits. Taste is of bread and fruit, the same white fruits as the nose; kinda like white grapes and maybe pears or green apples. The body is more on the lighter side with a slick texture and average mouth-carbonation, Goose Island Demolition Ale finishes with some subtle fruit sweetness.

22oz bomber poured into my Chimay Trappist glass. Bottled on 5/7/2010. Pours a dark gold with a thin ring of white head. Aroma of fruity yeast. Citrus and tropical fruits with a good bit of baking spices. Taste is light sweet and light bitter. Tropical and citrus fruits with a decent dose of hop bitterness along with the doughy yeast. Great combination. Medium bodied with a thin yet slick texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, very good. I would gladly drink it again.

[Bottle] Alright, so a disclaimer up front, this bottle has some age on it. I just bought it at the store tonight though, so I’m rating it. Looks nice enough, with a slightly hazy golden pour topped with a nice white head that lingers well. Good start. Aroma is unusual, but not terrible. Fairly fruity, and mainly just cheap apple juice. Maybe some peach notes too. Taste is also fruity up front, with plum and apple, a metallic character (fades as it warms), and some yeast, all of which melds into slightly dusty, crackery malt (high point of the beer). Well, it isn’t too bad, especially considering the age. I’ll have to re-rate a fresh bottle some time though.

Bottle. Poured clear amber color with an average frothy white head that was lasting with good lacing. Moderate sweet malt, yeast, floral hop aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met with a soft brew.

bottled. pours cloudy yelllow with an airy white head with some lacing. aromas of tin, yeast and grain. a little sweetness, just a touch of bitterness. light bodied, with a thin texture. it has an unassuming finish. really unexceptional, but still a decent beer.
