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.

Meatmallet (126) - Salem, Illinois, USA - SEP 12, 2009
Appearance: Pours an orangeish amber color and looks very hazy with a thin white head. Leaves a little bit of lace on the edges of the glass. Smell: Heavy pine hops with rapefruit, orange, and lemon citrus smells. Taste: Starts sweet and turns sour. Heavy grapefruit taste and there seems to be a bit of caramel to it too. Mouthfeel/drinkability: Feels creamy in the mouth with active carbonation and a medium body.

Gazelle019 (6) - Ohio, USA - SEP 10, 2009 does not count
Pretty tame for an IPA- more balanced than I normally like but an easy drinking beer with a little hop kick at the end

ben4321 (5646) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 10, 2009
Location: 12 oz bottle that jcos brought back from Cleveland, 9/10/09

Aroma: Citrus aroma, grapefruit, some floral hops
Appearance: Slightly hazy amber-orange color, lasting white head, decent amount of lace
Flavor: Nice, uncomplicated citrus hop flavor, some sweetness
Palate: Medium body, nice relatively long duration
Overall Impression: This is a really solid, simple, but good, citrus IPA. Not in-your-face, not overly complicated, just a nice, easy drinking, tasty brew. Something that would make a perfect session beer (though itís a little high in ABV for the true sense of the phrase) for someone with similar preferences to me.

Goose Island India Pale Ale is a hazy golden beer that leaves a white ring around the glass. It has a hoppy citrus aroma. Pine resin is detected. It smells slightly sweet and floral. It has a lively, smooth medium body with a crisp finish. It has a nice piny bitterness thatís well balanced by a light sweetness. It tastes so fresh and so good!
