3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 25, 2007 Draught at the brewpub, Wrigleyville location, 2007-09-29, 7-4-8-4-16=39
Light amber color. Hoppy aroma, fruity, very nice. Good malty flavor, with sticky sugars, good body, and a powerful hopping, aromatic and resiny, a bit fruity too. Very good, especially for being a low gravity one.

Golden to light amber color. Beautiful fruity hoppy aroma. Weaker body than expected, some sweetness, quite bitter and aromatic but not aggressive. Mild American IPA.

got the one by accident - i ordered some imp ipa from liquid solutions, and this was in its place. matt worked it out though (thanks matt). from the bottle - fruity and malty, with a decent hop kick. a pretty good ipa if i must say so. when i was drinking it i was picturing how good the iipa could be based off this one, and i must say those expectations are damn high. now i just need to get the beer.

OK, time to rate this beer, as it has been appearing in my home with increasing regularity. Finally, an IPA upon which me and my wife agree. She finds it surprisingly drinkable for 58 IBUís. Iím impressed by how refreshing this ale is. A most welcome houseguest, to keep company with alpha king and bitter woman.

On tap at Wrigleyville. Pours translucent orange with a foamy white head. Has all the standard IPA stuff going on...pine, citrus, etc. Had a nice bite on the finish. Itís not going to turn any heads but it is a fine example of a "normal" IPA.

Pours a copper, orange, thin head, some lacing. Aroma is pleasant, floral hops and some citrus. Flavor has some caramel and nuttiness. Lots of hops, floral, citrusy, and a little piney, but they are not overpowering. This was good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle; BBD 031906: Lively pour and abundant carbonation; large, firm, pillowy head; concentrated grapefruit and evergreen aroma with some grass and mild toasty malts; slightly hazy, deep amber body; musty malt front end, and flowery, very piney, citric hop finish thatís quite smooth; rounded, oily palate; not much malt charactor. I like this, but just canít see myself drinking very many at a time.

Hoppy, floral essence, kind of a perfumy aftertaste in a good way. Will look for more goose island products.
