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 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.

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

UPDATED: DEC 22, 2005 Visually stunning. Yellow/ orange sunburst appearence with lots of clarity. Fluffy white head, large! Smells nicely of pine. Tastes like pine and some citrus maybe lemon. I could see myself having a couple of these. Flavorful, yet still drinkable. I have yet to have anything but exceptional from Goose Island.

This is a very solid IPA on the upper end of the hopping chart, Nice tangy citrus twang going on that kind of keeps thing a bit more interesting than many IPAís. As I look at the other reviews I think it is also a light pine character that I couldnít place that works very well.

Pour is nice warming amber with a thin soapy off white head...smell is some pine but grapefruit everywhere...taste is not overpoweringly bitter but a nice spicey fruity flavor is imparted...finish is quick with a nice sweet lemon note...this is one of the better IPAs Iíve had...abundant hop presence, but not all bittering....

Had it for the first time yesterday, on tap at dba in NYC. One of the better IPAs Iíve had...more hops, less malt than most IPAs...just the way I like it.

Excellent grassy aroma. This IPA hits the tongue with a hoppy, pale-ale mouthfeel and leaves behind a malty, mildly roasted quality as the sharpness fades. This is one of our favorite session beers. Goes well with a campfire and your favorite music du jour. Bottle after bottle, we rely on the consistency of this truely delightful brew.

iím having a good night for good looking brews. this is no exception. clear orange pour that shone with a wonderful thick white head. great orange pineapple and pine hop aroma. sweet delicious hop flavor with a great lemon zest quality to it. the sweetness is subdued and the hops are able to show their stuff. great grapefruit and pine flavors with lemon. a very nice IPA

12 oz bottle. Hazy rich golden colour. Thin white head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, light sweet fruity hop nose. Spicy and citrusy with a touch of pine as well. Beautiful orange/grapefruit flavour mixed with some soft spiciness as well. Well-balanced and very tasty IPA.

Standard IPA. Amber color with a medium whtite head. Smells hoppy and piney. Taste is standard some hops with slight malt notes. Short hoppy aftertaste. Fine but nothing to write home about.
