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.

The beer has a beautiful amber color and a head as white as snow. It has the typical IPA features. The beer has a delicious citrusy hop smell. The fresh lemon zest is accompanied by a herbal hint. The taste is just as refreshing as the smell. It also has the distinct IPA taste, those citrusy hop flavors in combination with a tingling bitterness. The fizzly beer tingles the tongue anyway. The finish is delicious. It contains the IPA bitterness and at the beginning of the finish there are the sour hops. Nice.

Gary (1532) - Piss-ant Valley, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2015
Bottled :R8 ; A pretty solid mid-card IPA , very easy to swill 4 bottles without blinking /. Nose has resemblance with a classy air-freshener . Pine ,wood, aromatics, grass. Some rich caramel. A firm malty palate is married well with notes of orange , grapefruit , spice, caramel. Pretty dry and raspy finish . Gud stiff !

Clear Amber pour, thin white head that fades to a lace. Aroma is light citrus, grain, slight earthiness. Taste is light citrus, caramel, toast. Mild bitterness. Light body, medium carbonation. Doesn’t really stand out.

On tap at Buffalo Wild Wings, Terminal D, Atlanylta Airport. Pours darker amber with good sized off white head. Aroma is citrusy with solid malt presence. Taste is hoppy with citrus fruit and grass. Spicy malts present as well. Little bitterness. Palate is softly carbonated. Not bad, but I think the tap system here is contaminated. Some slinky notes in the after taste.

Belle amertume herbacée avec des notes florales persistance et un arrière-goût durable. Quelques moments d’absence la rende un peu mince, mais elle demeure fière, du fond de sa pinte qui se laisse descendre d’un trait.

Beerathon (1490) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 28, 2015
This beer is totally crushable, which is exactly what a session IPA should be. Nice inviting nose of grapefruit rind and light pine. Not overly bitter, does have some hop spice bite to it. Well done. Golden pour with lasting head and lacing.

Is it just me or is Goose Island all hype and small delivery. This is an okay IPA, but nothing special. Ok hops in the aroma and taste, but I want more, especially with the high rating here.

Thank you local supermarket for this, beats the standard lagers you find here. English, almost a tea flavor. Sticky sweet

EdInSaltLake (724) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - APR 26, 2015
Lemon/grapefruit, citrus peel hop aroma. Similar citrus hop flavor, with subtle floral finish. Light grainy, sweet malt flavor. A little thin, but nice aroma and flavor.
