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.

Bif (1800) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 20, 2014
On tap. Served a golden color with a fair head and spotty lacing. Aroma of citrus, bit of malt sweetness and grain. taste follows aroma with some malt sweetness, citrus. Decent bitterness and a clean finish. Moderate body, and some what refreshing. Comes across as a generic IPA, fits as a session beer.

generallee08 (764) - New York, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a tulip glass. The label lists the abv at 5% abv and 35 ibu. Appearance: It has a good deep golden colored body with great clarity and some visible carbonation. From the pour it sets up a nice thick white head of foam. This foamy head holds on well and makes tons of cool lacing on the glass. Smell: The aroma has a sweet mandarin orange like citrus character with lighter malty bread and grainy notes underneath. Taste / Palate: The flavor is hop forward but now more lemony than the nose suggested and herbal, almost tea like notes pop out on my tongue. Malt character is cracker like and white bready like. It also adds plenty of sweetness. The finish has a short funky herbal bitterness fading off the tongue.

Bottle from Total Wine in Huntington Beach, CA. Pours coppery gold with a white head. Light zesty aroma. Med minus body. Flavor is a burst of citrus with nice caramel, and then it nosedives into something not really nice. Finishes bready and bitter.
