Green Line Pale Ale is a honey-colored, immensely sessionable American pale ale with a pronounced, bright, American hop aroma and citrus flavor. Notes of biscuit and lightly toasted malt create the backbone for Green Lineís pleasant, crisp bitterness.

hotstuff (4864) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 31, 2016
Rated on 5-28-2016 (Bottled on 10MAR16) The appearance is a large foamy, fizzy white head that mostly diminished, yellow transparent body, fast rising carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is light citrus hops, floral, fruity, bready, and malt. The flavor presents light-moderate bitterness, citrus hops, bready, sweet, and malt. This beerís mouthfeel is light carbonation and this is a light-medium beer. An uneventful beer and not one of the better Goose Island beers that I have drank/rated.

Citrus hops with some grass and honey. Mid yellow/ golden body with a thin ringed head. Faint citrus with toast with some honey in the flavor, decent maltiness in the finish

On draft at Harry Carayís in Chicago. The pour is a darker gold, with a big white head that falls down leaving a nice soapy lace. The clarity is there, even though the color is a little dark. The aroma is plain. There is a lot of malt detectable right up front. There is a strong grassiness that comes in before the hop presents itself. Itís light and crisp, but easily overshadowed. The flavor is a little better, but much of the same. There is a light bitterness up front, but then it gets soft. There is a little juiciness and a light sweetness. The malts are definitely the show here. I wish there was more bitter hop to it. That being said, itís incredibly easy to drink. The mouth feel is a little syrupy, but overall itís light and crisp. There is a lift carbonation and a lingeringly bready, malty aftertaste. Not too bad

Hop on board, the label says. Dry, fruity, complex. It doesnít really connect but it does impress. Clear, shiny, bold pour with a decent head. Toasty in the nose with a bit of unpleasantness. The rough finish meddles with a good effort. A misfire for an APA, but good for a lager.

Tap pour into bumped pint glass at New Bohemia Uptown. Golden and heavily filtered with a healthy amount of white head. Nose is sweeter than anticipated with bubblegum coming through and some mild citrus. Taste actually has some banana mixing with traditional pale ale citrus and pine elements. Taste is overall quite simple and unimpressive. Finish is abrupt with a little lingering bitterness from the hops. This feels like Goose Island trying to appease a mass audience with a basic pale ale. Very boring effort. Take an Uber instead.

Decent middle of the road pale ale. It has a fruity flavor but an odd aftertaste.
