You know, it really frightens me when I can find something I like this much that comes from that Illnoise place, apart from that cute redhead I met at Summerfest.

poured copper/golden color, thin white head, good lace. smells nice and hoppy, grass and light citrus. flavor is predominently hoppy, with a bit of malt hiding beneath. these are wonderful hops, indeed. finishes nice and dry, bitter. excellent APA.

A very good beer. Wonderful color, Goes down extremely smooth. A beer that I can drink quite a few of without getting bored of the flavor.

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2006 Light brown. Lots of hops and a little fruit in the aroma. Flavor is pleasant but one dimensional with a weak hop flavor. I was thinking of a weak ipa while drinking this one.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The flagship beer of Gosse Island. Amber hue with small head and little lacing, thin to medium-bodied. Hoppy nose of pine and grapefruit.Some sweet malt undertones. Taste is fruity hops with a malty smoothness, lighty bitter aftertaste. Dry and lively mouthfeel. Slighty metallic finish. A quaffable ale, almost a toned down IPA. Recommended.

(Bottled)Plenty of flavo(u)r but a lack of body let this beer down too hoppy for my taste far too much for an IPA

Ambery with small head. Refreshing clear aroma. Soft and aromatic hops. Maybe a bit to light . Very drinkable, some berry. Gets better with each sip.

Bottled. Deep amber/ copper colour with a bright white head. Sweet like malt aromas to begin with then it settled down a bit. No a whole lot through the middle of the palate but finish with a slightly harsh twisted hop finish. That's not a cristism though. Just a note.
