COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Goose Island classic, once considered quite hoppy, is a nicely balanced American Pale Ale. It is brewed with flaked barley, plus pale, caramel and wheat malts. It is hopped with Willamette and UK Fuggle in the kettle and the bright tank. Hopscotch is one of our most popular seasonal beers, so make sure you have a pint before it’s gone.

Not sure aabout this one. Listed as a scottish ale. IT isn’t super hoppy. A bit earthy, lots of almost savory malt delivery.

Poured from draft at goose island brewery. Orange and white head. Clear. Not too scotchy. Carmel and hoppy notes. Smooth for the style

Found this one hard to rate because while it was good, it fell short in a lot of areas. A little mild and thin.

deyholla (5959) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - MAR 3, 2012
Sampled from the tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear golden orange with a white head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of pear with backing grain and a bit of grass. Flavor starts slightly sweet with a grain and pear note but is more slightly bitter pear and bread in the finish.

troyc (2187) - Illinois, USA - AUG 17, 2011
[Tap] Pours a clear golden color with a quickly receding head. English hop nose with some caramel and molasses thrown in. Basic light malt, bread and mild hop flavors. Light skunked notes. Grainy and grassy in the finish. Mild carbonation and light palate. Decent balance. Remarkably average in every respect.

TheAlum (5205) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - JUL 29, 2011
Flight on tap at the Clybourn brewpub (Chicago, IL). Pours a decent hazed orange amber pour, healthy sunset glow with a decent frothy tannish head. Dies to a film and laces small. Aromas are some nice fruity melange, citrus and lemons, with grapefruit, some peach and melon. Pale malts, bread, and biscuits. Some toast, more fruit, some oranges. Initial is lighter bodied, fairly clean with some decent bitterness, grass and florals, light lemony citrus essence. Some bread, pale malts, touches of toast. Fairly clean, a touch soapy, more dry grass coming into the backend. Not complex, a touch of tangerine and guimball, peach. Nice. Fruity and clean, dry, with some lingering bready malts. Nice refreshing summer APA that doesn’t offer a hop screamer, more of a sessioner.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 23, 2011
Draft at GI Clybourn. How the heck I’ve never rated this one, I’ll never know. I’ve seen it on tap so many times that it just seems odd. Anyway, pours an almost amber with a slight offwhite head. Big and billowy. On nose, fair amount of caramel with some floral and light citrus. Malt is kind of bland with the caramel dominating. On taste, sweet and a bit much caramel. Medium bitterness with a pleasing enough hop flavor. Just okay.

Tap. Standard scotch ale - smells and tastes like a sweatsock. Sorry - I just dislike the style.

msante79 (2209) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - JUN 27, 2010
On tap at Clybourn. Pours clear golden orange with white head. Aromas of faint hops and citrus with some caramel malts. Flavor was light for a pale ale. Some hops and citrus with mostly caramel malts. Mouthfeel was thin. Average at best pale ale.
