Poured from the bottle into a glass. A nice ale very easy to drink. Had as part of a variety pack and this was the 2nd best one.

Bottle from missoula, York. Beautiful toasty amber colour and a healthy head. Aroma is orange and a bit of lychee, malts and hops. Taste is mild and crisp. A little too mich carb for me but Very drinkable none the less.

Draught from The Pub poured into shaker - Pours amber with a tint of red with a 1 finger white head; Sweet malt, hops, a little spice to the nose; Floral and pine hops, some malt on the initial taste; Not bitter at all; A clean, hoppy, piney backtaste; A very refresing beerthat I enjoyed. The carbonation was a bit heavy to start with, but I think that may have been the lines at the bar. It did die down eventually. Good stuff!

Itís OK but not really for my taste. A little too citric and bitter. Seems quite carbonated

In my opinion, not Goose island's best beer, but a very good beer nonetheless. Hoppy but actually well-balanced according to type. A good introduction to Chicago's premier craft brewery.

Blah. Bottle might be skunked. Lots of oily head. Looks pretty tasty. Aroma is mild. The flavor is muted. A slightly bitter finish, but over all leaves a clean mouthfeel. Not my favorite.

Appearance- Crystal clear copper with a average off white head. Not long lasting with below average lacing. Aroma- Nice caramel scent with malts Flavor- Bitter bite, malty, kind of creamy mouthfeel.

Bottle. Fizzy medium white head sits atop a orange/amber body, very few bubbles and medium lacing. Pale and biscuit like malts in the nose with a line of fruitiness including (light spiced tea, pear, and mild pineapple). Some (SA) like eartyness, and hint of alcohol in the nose. Very refreshing in an ice tea sort of way. No really assertive hops in the brew, but still tasty. Clean, thin bodied and very drinkable. Nice lingering mild spices in the finish. "APA??" Tastes like an EPA or a bitter to me. Really enjoyed this one.
