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 lover’s 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 you’ll remember.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 20, 2008
Bottled at Monks Café, Stockholm. Pours out in a clear orange colour with copper hints. The foam sinks quickly. Really fresh and airy hop aroma of flowers, wet grass and dried oranges. Clean resinous, but not overly bitter flavour of orange-peels, flowers and minerals. Medium bodied. Long medium bitter finish of orangey and minerally hops. A well-balanced US IPA, well-made but lacks the bite.

This beer really embodies what an American-style IPA should be. Great balance between the malts and hops. It pours a copper color, not brilliant in appearance. Comes with a good head that lasts till the end. This is a pleasant beer that can be drank for awhile. Out of the tap it pours much clearer, and has a more noticeable hop aroma.

jbuzz (763) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 17, 2008
A Tasting at Three Cellars Milwaukee. Yet another good beer from Goose Island. This is a little lighter than most IPA’s. But is very good none the less.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 16, 2008
At Three cellars tasting. Amber with sweet hoppy aroma. Somewhat fruity tasting, decent hop finish though a little light for an IPA.

Dragonfly1 (498) - Colorado, USA - MAR 13, 2008
Cloudy orange in color, head dissipates quickly. Hop pellets on the nose. Aroma and taste are consistent, balanced and consistent flavor throughout- evenness of hops. Mouthfeel is surprisingly creamy / heavy / suspended vs being sharp.

hillfiiiiire (323) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 12, 2008
Golden amber body with white head and lacing. The aroma is wonderfully citrusy and floral. The flavor is similar with plenty of flowery hops, but is nice and clean on the palate. A nice balance of malts and hops. However, as an IPA, it’s not too striking.

milljam (682) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - MAR 10, 2008
Decent hop presence, not a knockout, but definitely there. Good bitterness and nice malt undertone. Could have a better aroma, but overall, not too bad.

Tap @ Wriglryville. A nice brew. Moderately hoppy. Great lacing. Very drinkable.

dm9831 (1512) - Monee, Illinois, USA - MAR 9, 2008
pours dark gold with a quickly dissipating head. the nose is hoppy. the flavor is hoppy and bitter but much too simple and mild to be a righteous IPA. not a bad brew, just not an interesting one.

GJF (1364) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - MAR 7, 2008
One of Goose Island better general beers. GI is a solid if unspectacular brewery, but this one’s quite nice. A hazy gold with a nice white head, decent lacing. Floral aroma, nice bitter hop flavor, plenty of malt. It’s a standard but well done IPA. Quite drinkable.
