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.

tap at goose island clybourn... nearly transparent orange brown pour with a medium to significant soapy white head.... aroma of light, clean citrus hops... citrisy hope flavors, a good portion of it grassy, and finishes off on a sweet/earthy bitter note. quite palatable and goes down easy.

Drank from a bottle. Poured a cloudy, copper-like color with a small head. Smelled of hops and slight citrus. Really well balanced taste with a little bite on the tongue. Very good IPA from Goose.

Tap... Poured clear orange-amber with a frothy head. Floral aroma with hops and malt. Thick palate with a nice sizzle on the tongue. Flavors of sweet juice and floral herbs, leafy hops and malt for balance. Great, solid IPA.

Pours a light, murky orange with a small white head. Aroma is of hops, citrus, malt, and pine. Taste is of slightly bitter hops, with citrus and pine. Nice caramel malt backbone. Not overly bitter, but very sweet. A very drinkable beer.

hoppy citrusy armoma -pous a slightly hazy copper orange with a white head. nice lacing on the glass- flavor is citrus and hops with a nice balance of malt - very nice flavor - this is not the best IPA but is a good one. I really enjoyed this. This is a fairly mild IPA and is very drinkable.

12oz bottle. Lively frothy carbonation. Filtered deep golden color. UK IPA style, full of hop flavor. Pleasant fresh grapefruit hop aroma. This is a really well done IPA. A very clean example of a world class IPA.

Bottle. Pours coppery orange with smooth frothy head that lingers for a short while. Smells sweet and floral and citric, with some pine and grass. Tastes very smooth, sweet and hoppy, citric fruits present. Finishes smooth with a piney aftertaste.
