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.

Cloudy orange in color, head dissipates quickly. Hop pellets on the nose. Aroma and taste are consistent, balanced and consistent flavor throughout- evenness of hops. Mouthfeel is surprisingly creamy / heavy / suspended vs being sharp.

hillfiiiiire (323) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 12, 2008
Golden amber body with white head and lacing. The aroma is wonderfully citrusy and floral. The flavor is similar with plenty of flowery hops, but is nice and clean on the palate. A nice balance of malts and hops. However, as an IPA, it’s not too striking.

Decent hop presence, not a knockout, but definitely there. Good bitterness and nice malt undertone. Could have a better aroma, but overall, not too bad.

Tap @ Wriglryville. A nice brew. Moderately hoppy. Great lacing. Very drinkable.

dm9831 (1512) - Monee, Illinois, USA - MAR 9, 2008
pours dark gold with a quickly dissipating head. the nose is hoppy. the flavor is hoppy and bitter but much too simple and mild to be a righteous IPA. not a bad brew, just not an interesting one.

GJF (1468) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - MAR 7, 2008
One of Goose Island better general beers. GI is a solid if unspectacular brewery, but this one’s quite nice. A hazy gold with a nice white head, decent lacing. Floral aroma, nice bitter hop flavor, plenty of malt. It’s a standard but well done IPA. Quite drinkable.

jvmiller (558) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - MAR 6, 2008
A solid IPA. The hop complexity is low, but its not thin, for sure. There is a solid bitter presence as a backbone, which I appreciate. Could use some more aroma hops. Overall, its pretty well balanced and drinkable. Nothing offensive I can find about it. Enjoyable.

Gregis (1281) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - MAR 5, 2008
Pours a hazy amber-orange with a loose, frothy, off-white head and a jellyfish-like, cloudy yeast formation at the center of the glass. The aroma is of biscuity malt backed by floral and lightly fruity hop notes. On the light side of medium-bodied and silky-slick, the mouthfeel finishes with a moderately bitter, tongue-squeezing finish. It’s a bit thinner than many IPAs, but it is also amazingly quaffable for the style. Pale malt with a light biscuit note, backed by bitter, floral hops. This is a nice, hoppy treat and is extremely drinkable. I was fairly impressed by this one.

Bottle. [thank you, Yngwie]
Pours a nice hazy pale amber with a 2 cm thich creamy white head on top. Wonderful lacing in big blotches. Aroma is strong, with lots of pine hops, mixing with caramel, grapefruit, light roastiness. Low to medium carbonation and a rather creamy feel. Flavour is relatively sweet at first, lots of caramel and herbal hoppy sweetness. Middle is dry and pine-like hoppy, before a long lingering dry aftertaste of fruity hops mixed with that light roast that appeared in the aroma as well.

evilsoc (191) - WALES - MAR 3, 2008
A hazy pale amber beer with a lasting white head. Hop aromas are grassy and slightly spicy. The malty aroma is of fresh sweet wort. Both play a big part which is great. a very creamy mouth feel, the carbonation is pretty much perfect for the beer. Awesome balance for my palate at least. Distinctly american but also tradtional in many ways.
