COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our IPA recalls a time when ales shipped from England to India were highly hopped to preserve their distinct taste during the long journey. The result, quite simply a hop loverís dream. And this classic ale adds a fruity aroma, set off by a dry malt middle, to ensure that the long hop finish is one youíll remember.

Big jump to go from 4 straight traditional scottish ales, with no hops, to this. Got that great aroma, not too bitter with some nice hops throughout. Pretty good stuff.

GaltScat (195) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 18, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2007 Very much a mediocre IPA. Some mild flavor of hops, grapefruit, malt, and yeast but neither well blended nor well balanced. Finish tastes like cardboard.

sheatripper (863) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JAN 15, 2007
Bottle. Clear amber to light copper with a craggy white head. Striped lacing. Grapefruit and some floral hop aromas. Biscuity to light caramely malt body infused with grapefruit zest hoppiness. Finishes very clean and dry for the style, with just the mildest hoppy/bitter aftertaste. Subtle carbonation. Relatively modest ABV for the style and overall drinkability may alllow this to be considered a "session IPA." I can imagine this being the ideal pizza beer.

A great IPA from Chicago. This is the first Goose Island brew Iíve had and if the rest are anything like this they will be on top of my list of brewers! The pour was a hazy orange with a thin white head. The taste was all malt offsetted by a great hoppy bitter aftertaste. Gooses honk and I would honk for another bottle of this! World class!

dkoonce (911) - Peopleís Republic of Athens, Ohio, USA - JAN 11, 2007
Bottle. Dark yellow, with a medium off-white head. From the aroma, this beer is pretty heavily hopped. Mostly a pine smell. Light and resinous, with a slight bit of malt. Despite the light body, the finish is a bit sour.

demitriustown (1064) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - JAN 2, 2007
12 oz bottle: a medium hopped citrus aroma with a small amount malts in the scent. Appearance is an orange/amber color with a small white head. Taste is more citrus than big over the top hops a light malt texture melds throughout. Palate is kind of sweet with the bitterness lingering on after a half a minute or so. Overall, as an IPA itís a good drinking beer, but it does lack in the hop flavor. Itís a nice medium bodied beer that can be enjoyed by all.

beerbill (3381) - Laurel, New York, USA - DEC 31, 2006
12 oz. bottle. Pours a slightly hazy gold with a thin head that was gone after a few sips. Pleasant citrus and pine aroma. Citrus and pine are also present in the flavor along with a touch of malt. Iíve had a few IPAís recently that all seemed to be heavily dominated by grapefruit flavors, which I do not care for. The citrus in this IPA leans more towards orange and does not give you that pucker-up bitterness. Really good stuff and quite enjoyable.

CigarsLoveBeer (153) - Illinois, USA - DEC 27, 2006
bottle: Attractive head with some lacing. Light orange color with lots of carbonation. Heavy pine & citrus in the aroma. with some pastry. Muted spicy hop finish, but still strong and long. Entry is bready and mildly sweet. Good body. Creamy/milky all the way through.

Poured from bottle...Nice golden color. Slightly cloudy. Small head, but very nice lace. Light, fruit taste, some hops, but not real bitter. This was a great beer.

(Tap) Pours a light brown with a medium-sized white head. Hoppy aroma and flavor, with fruity notes as well. Malty notes balance and smooth the beer. Nice finish, with a great hoppy aftertaste.
