2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pleasent, sunny aroma. Poured well with a nice, white head. Although a little to bitter for my palate. Also, the after taste lingered longer than I like. Would recoment if you enjoy an IPA.

Golden orange with a white head. Sweet floral aroma with some citrus. The taste had a little malt and then fruit, which lead to a sharp grapefruit hoppiness. Excellent.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a 12 oz. twist cap long neck brown bottle with a best before date on the back label, 06/26/06.
Made a good appearance, poured a hazy reddish and orange hued golden with a foamy white that settled into a thin foamy lacing, small amount of sticking, moderate carbonation.
Had a spicy, grassy hop nose with a light floral and fruity aromas, also a touch of grain.
A crisp, mild dry hop texture and smooth light bodied mouth feel, good drinkability.
Good IPA taste, a dry spicy rind and grassy hop bitterness, mild and rolling on the tongue, toasted grainy malty with a very subtle fruitiness in the middle and a dry hoppy and grainy finish with a lemon rind lingering in the palate.
A nice and tasty AIPA from Goose Island, a good everyday IPA.
