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.

Faint citrus hops, but mostly this has the same stale hop smell as the regular Goose Island IPA. Lots of club soda taste. If I really want something sessionable, which I do, then there are far better options out there than this.

Pours clears gold with a small white ring. Aroma is light cereal malt with citrus hops. Taste is a nice balance of citrus hop with malt sweetness. Easy drinking and very palpable, good entrance IPA.

AlainG (1877) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 11, 2016
Un liquide blond lumineux à la mousse fuyante. Un nez d’ananas en conserve et d’herbes vertes. Des saveurs fruitées; ananas, pamplemousse et poire, encore ici, dans un sirop.. Une légère amertume. Un alcool qui ressemble un peu à celui qui sert à frictionner et ça pétille un peu. (1813-030516)

Bendrixian (1476) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 10, 2016
Clear yellowish pour. Citrus hoppy aroma but very reduced and a bit of hay. Medium bodied but has a citrus flavour. Fast profile and light on the finish. Never enjoyed this beer style as I always find these beers watery.

punkska101 (1636) - Chambly, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 5, 2016
Can from local iga grocery A: citrusy, light oranges App: clear golden small white head and good lacing. T/p: thin to med body with short bitter finish. Soft carbonation. O: it’s possibly old, couldn’t figure the dating on the can. The aroma isn’t clearly at it best end up sharing more than half with my good old friend : The Drain.

SlovakSniper (4920) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 5, 2016
Au nez, les houblons perdent de timides saveurs d’agrumes tandis que les céréales ont un caractère poussiéreux. Le goût est vite oublié, très peu prenant, peu expressif, faible. La bouche montre un corps léger avec bulles abondantes. La finale se fait sur des notes herbacées et résineuses/florales très peu intenses. Pas si pire que ça.

Hidden_Pooch (514) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - MAY 4, 2016
Pours clear gold with a medium head. Aroma is of dank tropical fruits, maybe a little skunk and pine. Tastes is big musty, rotten peaches and pine. Very strange taste. Has a light, average carbonated body that is refreshing, minus the taste. This beer couldn’t end sooner.

Lagerboy (1886) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 4, 2016
341 ml bottle. Clear yellow orange, fine creamy white foam mostly lasts. Aroma of citrusy grapefruity hop. Taste is mostly barely bitter juicy citrusy grapefruity, some orange, faintly floral, lean malts, an aqueous, easy quencher. Average carbonation, lighter bodied, well hopped.
