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.

Goose IPA used to be a go to... But when the traitors sold out to in bev it was only a matter of time quality would go to crap. Hoppy water should be its new name.

Golden amber, foamy off white head. Aroma of resin, pine, hints of caramel. Taste is bitter, floral, and underlying notes of malt and molasses. Finishes bitter and astringent, lingering. Average body. Decent.

From a can it pours light golden orange. Not a particularly pleasant smell. Tastes a little watered down or just not enough of a malt base. Astringent bitterness with a flat hop character. Finish is absent. Not impressed and would not buy again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tom10101 (3879) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 17, 2015
Bottle (341 ml) bought @ Épicerie Lauzière.

Appearance: Slightly hazy orangey with a medium off-white head and some lacing.

Aroma: A mix of caramel, floral hops and resin along light fruitiness. No hops explosion here, but nothing off-putting either.

Taste: A bit sweet for the style but not cloying. Caramel, pine, floral hops, light spiciness and mild bitterness.

Palate: Medium body. Medium carbonation. Caramel and pine in the finish. Light fruitiness.

Overall: A decent old-style caramel forward IPA with decent drinkability. Ok, but not worth buying when you can have DDC Moralité for the same price.

Hamirubi (308) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - JUL 11, 2015
35.5cl bottle at home. Strong citrus and hoppy flavoured aromas coming from an amber coloured, clear lively brew with white, yellow diminishing foam on top. The nose has some creamy, vanilla and pinewood hints too. Really lovely. The taste indeed is fruity, with citrus and oranges features, but it also is very dry and high in malts. The bitterness of course masters the palate. A modest - for its really light bodied and non-complex character -, good tasting IPA from the iconic Goose Island brewery.

tfontana (156) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 10, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 17, 2015 Can from Epsom Circle Market, Epsom NH. Aroma is resinous and citrusy hops, slight toast. Appearance is lightly hazy yellow with massive 4-finger frothy head with foamy lacing and decent sparkle. Taste is dominant light citrusy sweet with light bitterness. Palate is light-to-medium bodied with moderate texture, soft carbonation and mildly bitter finish. Overall, a highly sessionable IPA and decent all around.
