3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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

12 oz bottle, Wolfgang Puckís, OíHare Airport. Crystal copper color, white hed, nice lacing. Aroma of crystal malts and spicy hops. Big malty flavor, hops not over the top but well done. If available to me locally, I would make this my house ale.

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.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy yellow amber with spongy off white head. Sticky lacing.
Watery palate and very little (for an IPA) bitterness comes through. Metallic after taste.

This beer is barely noticeable. The aroma is non-existent, the color is nothing special, in the taste is average.

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.
