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. May be the worst Goose Island beer I've had. Nice appearance, so it was at least pretty to look at as it was poured down the drain.

JLAudio (282) - Crestwood, Illinois, USA - DEC 7, 2007
Not a huge fan of this beer. It is somewhat malty, somewhat hoppy, somewhat not good for some reason. Its blend is ok, the complexity lacks, and the flavors are muddled. I didn’t find this refreshing but didn’t find it terrible either. There are much better from goose island

Cloudy yellow amber with spongy off white head. Sticky lacing. Watery palate and very little (for an IPA) bitterness comes through. Metallic after taste. $7.99/6pk at Publix

I liked it alot but there is only so much you can do with an ale. After a while you really got to know your stuff to make major judgements on different types of ales. I...well I just drink the stuff. I can’t tell you the strain of hops used.

KarmanGhia (276) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 8, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2005 This pours a very nice brown with an orange hew with a fine white head that lasts and laces well. The nose is brown (if brown were a smell) and lightly hoppy. The mouthfeel is medium. The malts are very balanced with bittersweet hops, and the tastes are piney, orangish, and grassy. APAs are often overbearing and this one is not. It is a lesson in subtlety, though it could use some more flavor in the trailing end.

OliverG (276) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 29, 2012
29-01-12 Bouteille: Ambrée-orangée, limpide et claire, très légère effervescence et mousse abondante et épaisse qui disparait asser rapidement. Arômes fruitée et maltée avec des notes de farine et de fleurs. Légèrement sucrée, sans réelle amertume, bien balancé, fraiche et désaltérante. Crops léger avec une texture mince, mais avec une eptite rondeur en bouche. Carbonisation moyenne et finale maltée et asser courte. Bien gouteuse pour une bière à faible taux d’alcool et différente de la plénitude des big beers américaines.

nazbion (276) - Tübingen, GERMANY - DEC 23, 2015
Pours clear dark orange with thin white head. Aroma of caramel and toffee. Taste is malty, light sweet with light bitterness at the end. Light body, dry, soft carbonation. Easy drinking, nice ale.
