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.

bottle - Pours up copper colored with a thin, head. The pine hop aroma is very good. The bitter and rather well balanced flavor is pretty typical for the style. There are some mild citrus notes and the dry finish is okay.

Dorqui (2110) - Brescia, ITALY - APR 1, 2006
Much creamy and supporter head, optimal resistance. Orange/amber color, limpid, light loads and with a good fizz. Complex and agreeable scent; notes of sweet malt, abundant hop, a lot sweet with rumors of withered grape and flowers. Medium pungent taste, lightly dry only on the end. Powerful bitter mixed with sweet notes of flowers. Harmonic and much persistent end.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - MAR 31, 2006
Bottle from Kevin Gracias!

Pours thick and gold, with a healthy head and an aroma of sweet, sugary pine and grapefruit. Lively carbonation. Flavor is sweet grapefruit with sugar on the edges, and just a hint of pine in the finish. Palate is silky. Oh man, this is goooooood stuff. Goose Island rocks, and I will start the wheels turning to get their stuff in Texas.

This

is

goooood.

It had a cloudy yellow/orange color with a small head. You can definitely taste the hops. It had a nice finish.

I love IPA’s and this is definitly a good example of one. Poured fantastically with great lacing. Very full body with strong hop finish. Fantastic.

rickgordon (3844) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 19, 2006
Bottled. Sampled at Delirium Café, Göteborg. It was about time Håkan at Delirium got hands on American quality beers. Light amber colour, good steady head. Big US hops in the aroma, with notes of citrus and rubber. Smooth mouthfeel, not super malty, with notes of mandarine, grape and citrus. The bitterness was much lower than expected. Maybe bottle was not all fresh? Loads of flavouring hops though.

harrisoni (13828) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2007 Bottle from Utobeer. Copper colour with thin white head. Nicely aromatic US hop aroma, with a cross between grapefruit and tea. Fine in mouth, bit lacking in structure and malt balance, but hey. Finish is unsurprisingly zingy and hoppy with grapefruit and more tea. I mean yeah, it’s nice. Difficult to get a character in a beer so richly hopped 3.6/5 Re-rate 11/07/07 Bottle at Brew Wharf, Borough. Lovely beer. Lovely grapefruit hop aroma and excellent bitterness on finish. Really impressed.
