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 a pale amber with a white foamy head that leaves little lacing. The aroma is a sweet hops with citrus and pine accents. The flavor lives up to the aroma with an evident sweetness and pine overtones. The finish is mildly bitter, but it lingers well and combined with a crisp clean finish makes this very drinkable.

The aroma was fruitily hoppy with hints of citrus/apricot. The appearance was yellow-orange. The flavor was lightly sweet up front with a hoppy, pine cone-like finish with a lingering aftertaste - just the way I like it!!! The mouthfeel was pleasantly fizzy on the tip of my tongue and medium bodied. Overal a nice IPA.

Bottle. Pours hazy light orange/amber with a good white head. Aroma is mildly floral and citrus. Flavor is same with nice bitterness and a slightly sweet background. Goes down extremely easy. Finish is nice, crisp and bitter but not overpowering. Very good.

Hokey smokes; already on the ninth of the night. Not feeling woozy yet but definitely more relaxed. I’ve heard good things of this Goose Island. I would like to confirm the word of those who speak of this fine brewery. Well-balanced IPA with the malts playing along with the main attraction of the hops.

Draft Wrigleyville: Light golden color, some floral and citrus in it it. It’s a solid IPA.

LePoopie (151) - Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 25, 2006
Has a pleasant, mild hoppy aroma to it. Decent golden amber color with a light head. Wonderful hoppy flavor, I quite enjoyed it. Has a good body, texture, and carbonation. Overall, a pretty good IPA.

bridge (659) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 25, 2006
Clear golden orange with a creamy head. Lovely strong peach and grapefruit aroma thanks to the generous helping of hops. Translates to a nice strong bitterness that seems to balance well. Medium bodied with a good carbonation level and a fairly long finish. Quite refreshing, and amounting to a good regular drinking beer

thebeertourist (4893) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 24, 2006
Amber with a rich white head. Pungent citrus and floral aroma with some underlying malty sweetness. Sweet caramel flavour nicely balanced by grapefruit bitterness. Dry finish. Quite soft, medium body. A wonderful, and dangerously drinkable IPA.

UPDATED: JAN 30, 2007 I love beers like this. Aroma is grapefruit and gooseberry out its nut. Taste is similarly full of citrus flavours with sweetness coming off the malts, not a big bold chewy body, but a good sweetness, to make it one of the most drinkable beers iv had in a month or two. Get me a case of this so i can have a few days off.
