2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light amber pour. Medium head that falls fast. Unfortunate bitterness that ruins the beer. Highly hopped, which makes my stomach cry for Pepto or Tums later on. I just donít dig the hops.

Good hop aroma present. Assertive level of bitterness, but seems slightly overdone or unbalanced. Enjoyable but not as smooth as others in the style range.

Iím not an IPA fan really, so giving it this rating needs to be taken as a compliment. Itís not a bad IPA.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On the íbitterí side of IPAís... similar to Sierra Nevada or Anchor in the íbitterí style. My Favorite Goose Island brew... Thereís a few IPAís I might like slightly better, but this is OVER a 4.00 beer. Iím never disappointed to drink this. HINT! To reduce bitterness, double or Triple-pour it from one glass to the other. Needs aereation.

I wasnít wildly impressed, I did like the citrusy nature (itís definitely worthwhile to try) but there are better IPAs out there.

A commendable US IPA. A cut-grass freshness and good hops bite is presesnt. Still, White Shield and Empire Pale Ale rule. Try íem if you can.

Pour with a nice head. Light amber in color and little cloudy. Aroma of hops. Taste fruity, sweet and bitter from the hops. Not crazy bitter. A very enjoyable IPA.

Had a few (3) bottles of this after I returned home from the Buckeyes game. Fresh nose
of pine and citrus. Pours a light sparkling amber. The large rocky white head is fully
lasting with excellent lacing. The flavor is bitter and warm with moderate to heavy
acidity. The brew finishes strong with citrus overtones and a nice heavy bitterness. The
light creamy body has lively carbonation and finishes dry.
