COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Long days and warm nights awaken the city. The list of neighborhood festivals is endless. As is the great music that brings us together in parks and parking lots. We brewed our Session IPA to be easy drinking and endlessly refreshing, so you can enjoy every encore. Bright note of fresh oranges and other citrus fruit with a mild body that is crisp on the palate.

Admin Note: Although this is similar to Forcone, Goose Island assures me this beer is a different recipe for large scale release in 2014 evolved from that original batch for Pitchfork Music Festival 2013.

Pour from a 12 oz. bottle at the Anheuser-Busch Biergarten in St. Louis. Pours a clear gold color with a small white head. Good complexity to the hops in this - spicy, herbal, and piney - with pale, bready, and toasty malts, citrus fruits, and tea. Light-bodied, with low carbonation. Drinks lower than 5%, but it’s still 5%. There are better session IPAs out there, but this is good.

For what they are trying to accomplish in this near light iPA, they have done so with perfection. It can’t compare with my favorite Sculpin. But for the price and flavor is it a nice easy going down beer at 5%. Definately more bite and flavor then all those orher 4 or 5%’ers,

Leighton (18525) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2014
Bottle on the Metro North train from Grand Central to Wassaic. Pours perfectly clear copper-gold with a frothy white head. Pleasant aroma with mild pine and ripening orange. Light to medium sweet flavor with some bittering pine, light bready pale malts, ripe citrus fruits. Light bodied with average carbonation. Finishes lightly resinous with nice toasty pale, bready malts, tangerine and orange. A solid sessioner, yep.
