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.

This beer poured a little lighter orange colour with a very small white but pleasently aromatic head. Taste was moderately hopped, but nice finish with a classic citrus tone that lingers for a while.

Tap: Clear copper color with a weak aroma and taste. I was really disappointed since I was expecting a bit more from Goose Island. I am surprised to see it rated so highly. It just seemed like an average IPA that didn’t stand out in any category. Call me crazy, but I’ll pass this one up next time.

There are much better IPA’s in my opinion but I still enjoyed this a lot. The smell let it down, slight clorhine (sp?) kind of smell. Lacks knackers for a too high rate but drinkable enough for sure. A little bitter for me but I’m in no way slating this as I thought it was very nice.

Bottle, Ale Cellar, Darlington. There’s a goose loose in tha hoose...Pours a warm golden colour with thinnish white head. Citrus hop aroma, piney grapefruit hop flavour balanced nicely with maltiness. Superb hop bitterness to finish. Very drinkable.

Goose Island India Pale Ale is a slightly hazy amber color with an off-white/creamy colored head. The aroma is of spicy/mild hops and the taste is very light yet nicely bitter. This is a very easy to drink beer with a great taste.

Pours a golden color with white head that falls slowly. Smells of spicy hops. Taste is all hop with a hint of licorice at the end. Medium body with mild carbonation. A good pale ale.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 20, 2008
Bottled at Monks Café, Stockholm. Pours out in a clear orange colour with copper hints. The foam sinks quickly. Really fresh and airy hop aroma of flowers, wet grass and dried oranges. Clean resinous, but not overly bitter flavour of orange-peels, flowers and minerals. Medium bodied. Long medium bitter finish of orangey and minerally hops. A well-balanced US IPA, well-made but lacks the bite.

This beer really embodies what an American-style IPA should be. Great balance between the malts and hops. It pours a copper color, not brilliant in appearance. Comes with a good head that lasts till the end. This is a pleasant beer that can be drank for awhile. Out of the tap it pours much clearer, and has a more noticeable hop aroma.

A Tasting at Three Cellars Milwaukee. Yet another good beer from Goose Island. This is a little lighter than most IPA’s. But is very good none the less.
