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 from Ross. Thanks brother! Pours golden orange with a minimal white head. Flavor is juicy and piney hops throughout. A great ipa that I would buy more of was it available to me.

MrChris (110) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JAN 20, 2007
Nice sweet hoppy aroma. Pours golden yellow with a small white head that disappears quickly. No noticeable carbonation. Medium sweet hop induced frutyness. Little froth, almost flat mouth feel. Flavor stays with you all way to the bottom of the glass. This is a full flavor beer that is not overpowering. For my money, and I didnít pay much, This is a decent ale.

Big jump to go from 4 straight traditional scottish ales, with no hops, to this. Got that great aroma, not too bitter with some nice hops throughout. Pretty good stuff.

GaltScat (195) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 18, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2007 Very much a mediocre IPA. Some mild flavor of hops, grapefruit, malt, and yeast but neither well blended nor well balanced. Finish tastes like cardboard.

Bottle. Clear amber to light copper with a craggy white head. Striped lacing. Grapefruit and some floral hop aromas. Biscuity to light caramely malt body infused with grapefruit zest hoppiness. Finishes very clean and dry for the style, with just the mildest hoppy/bitter aftertaste. Subtle carbonation. Relatively modest ABV for the style and overall drinkability may alllow this to be considered a "session IPA." I can imagine this being the ideal pizza beer.

A great IPA from Chicago. This is the first Goose Island brew Iíve had and if the rest are anything like this they will be on top of my list of brewers! The pour was a hazy orange with a thin white head. The taste was all malt offsetted by a great hoppy bitter aftertaste. Gooses honk and I would honk for another bottle of this! World class!

dkoonce (911) - Peopleís Republic of Athens, Ohio, USA - JAN 11, 2007
Bottle. Dark yellow, with a medium off-white head. From the aroma, this beer is pretty heavily hopped. Mostly a pine smell. Light and resinous, with a slight bit of malt. Despite the light body, the finish is a bit sour.

demitriustown (1112) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - JAN 2, 2007
12 oz bottle: a medium hopped citrus aroma with a small amount malts in the scent. Appearance is an orange/amber color with a small white head. Taste is more citrus than big over the top hops a light malt texture melds throughout. Palate is kind of sweet with the bitterness lingering on after a half a minute or so. Overall, as an IPA itís a good drinking beer, but it does lack in the hop flavor. Itís a nice medium bodied beer that can be enjoyed by all.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a slightly hazy gold with a thin head that was gone after a few sips. Pleasant citrus and pine aroma. Citrus and pine are also present in the flavor along with a touch of malt. Iíve had a few IPAís recently that all seemed to be heavily dominated by grapefruit flavors, which I do not care for. The citrus in this IPA leans more towards orange and does not give you that pucker-up bitterness. Really good stuff and quite enjoyable.
