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.

Där orden tar slut börjar ölet att sjunga. Ur Goose Island frigörs en strid ström av locktoner som hittar sin klangbotten långt ner i ölmagen. Fast tömmer man tillräckligt många kan den där smeksamma melodin förvandlas till en godnattvisa.

Maakun (594) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 4, 2014
Bottle. Slightly hazy light amber with small white head and good lacing. Light roasted malts, lots of aroma hops with pine, lime, tropical fruits, apricots and some peach. Light yeast with almost funky smell. Light bready. Bit sweet at first and goes into a medium bitter hoppy finish. Medium to light bodied and slightly dry. Ok IPA. Not extremely hoppy but well balanced.

Goose Island delivers a reliably delicious IPA, milder hoppiness than others but very enjoyable. Pours a copper/ yellow orange color, just average appearance. Smell is fresh fruity hops and toasty caramel malt. Anticipates the taste which is likewise a well-balanced combination of slightly caramel maltiness and tropical and piney hoppiness. Very smooth, finishes with a pleasant hoppy aftertaste. Bitterness is light and refreshing, also reminiscent of English style ales. Very well done overall, recommended!

Bouteille. La Cervoise 91. Robe orange limpide coiffée d'une mousse écrue. Nez de caramel aux senteurs fruitées et résineuses de houblons. En bouche c'est doux et suave sur le caramel avec des notes fruitées d'orange amère, de pêche blanche et de lytchee. Finale sèche et amère. Une leçon américaine de justesse. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jcnielsen (2108) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUL 23, 2014
On tap at Memphis airport. Pours a copper color with white head. Balanced hoppy, slight grassy, bitter, yet solid malt backbone. Solid, but just not that great.

12oz can. 01MAR14 date. Says brewery fresh for 180 days. Not sure if I believe that, but then again im not the target audience for this one. Anyway, not too bad. Bitter and piney. More malt heavy than I prefer.
