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.

Bottle poured a clear golden amber with a lasting off white head. Aromas of grapefruit rind, pine, light carmel and a hint of orange. Palate was light bodied and dry. Flavors of grapefruit, light orange, a hint of pine and a hint of spice with a pleasently dry bitter finish.

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.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2006
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.

jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - JUN 14, 2006
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.

One of the better Indian Pale Ales I have had. Wish we could get this beer in Tennessee, but as with it seems most good beers, you canít.
