On Tap Never hear of the green line when I was offered one. My favorite Goose Island creation yet! Wish I could find some in Hoosierville. Great session beer. =)

A really good pale ale. Little wheaty finish but pretty smooth. Pours a golden yellow color. Not much of an odor.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at the brewpub in the airport. Pours a clear amber color with a moderate white head on it. Nose is ok, with a subtle blend of hops and malty tones in there. Taste is heavily malty with a little bit of nuttiness in there. Nothing special.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at ORD bar. Clear yellow/orange with puffy head, no visible carbonation. Citrus and grainy aroma. Very mild palette, some citrus notes with a mild hop finish. No lingering aftertaste. Very balance beer with no dominant flavors. Pleasant but unremarkable, especially for a style that is usually more aggressively hopped. Would make a good session ale.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Uno’s Pizzeria in Chicago last summer. It poured a copper gold with a nice hoppy aroma. The flavor was citrus, some caramel malt and pine. Another solid beer from Goose Island but not outstanding, an everyday type of APA.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
How well they do a pale ale to me defines a brewery. This was a full pint at the brewery on the day after DLD 2013. It came in the glass a clear gold color with a nice white head. Good lacing rings. The nose was of caramel malts and citrus hops. Medium in body with a clean smooth mouth feel. The flavor was tropical fruit, floral and citrus hops. Finish is dry and bitter. This is a solid APA and very easy drinking. Goose Island passed the test.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
It poured a golden color with a white head. The aroma was nice juicy hops and some good honeyed malts. The taste was smooth, clean and easy to drink. It had a great balance of fruitiness, hops and malt. Good stuff.
