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.

12oz bottle. Pours a golden copper color with 1in. off white somewhat sustaining head that left good lacing. Aroma is spicy and fruity hops. The flavor is dominated by the fruit and spice and balanced well with a nice dry malt in the middle. Medium body with excellent dry texture and lively carbonation. An awsome tasteing well priced IPA. I will certainly enjoy more of this brew.

Bottle, courtesy Gillard. Golden straw pour, fuzzy white head, tons of lacing. Big hops in the nose, tea, citrus, vanilla, some smooth pineapple. Big hop flavors, soft and creamy citrus, vanilla. So smooth and drinkable, very crisp. Could drink a dozen of these.

Narnad (1513) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - JUN 16, 2008
Pours hazy hazy golden with a solid white head that stays until the first sip. Great lacing on the side of the glass is left by the head. Great bitter hops aroma of what smells to be fuggles and a slight fruity undertone. Flavor starts off bitter of fuggles and moves into a great sweet malty flavor to finish. Great IPA.

GMUcrew7 (577) - Mason, Ohio, USA - JUN 15, 2008
Pours kind of a smoky peach color, with 2 fingers of a fluffy white head. Floral hop aroma with a hint of pine. Well balanced flavor, very limited initial hop bitterness followed by a very nice sweet malt flavor. Nice smooth and creamy beer with a sticky and oily palate. An easy to drink beer, but a step below the top tier IPA’s in terms of complexity and flavor.

unclemike (2682) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - JUN 13, 2008
12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. This beer poured a hazy light amber color with a small beige head that fades slowly. Some light lacing is left behind. The aroma is fruity, citrus hops along with some light toffee notes. The flavor consists of orange, grapefruit, and some lightly sweet malts. Very nicely balanced for an IPA. The mouthfeel is light and slightly watery. Light to medium-bodied. A solid IPA from Goose Island.

Bottle. Seemed like a pretty standard IPA. Good amount of hop bitterness which was supported nicely by a pretty strong malt backbone.

EricE (1367) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 8, 2008
Golden pour with a red tint. Thick fluffy white head. Piny dry hop aroma with lots of roasted malt and fruit. Sweet fruity start with hints of citrus and peach. Hoppiness takes over. There’s a surprising amount of malt. Nice easy to drink balanced beer, though very weak for an IPA.
