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.

jsporrer (628) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 16, 2016
On tap @ Applebees. Pours a dirty amber with a nice head of white foam. Aroma is of light pine with some citrus. Taste is very crisp and refreshing. Light pine with some semi-sweet citrus. Not harsh or bitter at all. Very enjoyable. Not what I expected from an IPA. Was great with a spicy meal.

Matwill (91) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 16, 2016
Bu directement de la bouteille de 341ml. Odeur assez malté, floral, un peu fruité. Goût semblable, amertume qui se prolonge un peu en bouche. IPA respectable qui ne réussi pas à se démarquer dans le marché.

swiseman (475) - Fredericton, New Brunswick, CANADA - APR 14, 2016
pours a light amber. thin, white head. strong floral aromas. strong bitterness with subtle hints of grapefruit and lemon peel. finish is similar with strong grass and citrus. While IBUs are reasonable, still lacks balance as bitterness seems to win over taste. It’s fine, but with a world of IPAs to choose from, this won’t make a recommended list.

AdolfoCC (153) - Veracruz, Veracruz, MEXICO - APR 9, 2016
UPDATED: APR 21, 2016 Servido en una pinta nonic Goose Island. APARIENCIA: de color ámbar/dorado, se observa cristalina y moderada actividad de carbonatación; de corona de espuma color blanco, de buena retención y burbujas compactas AROMA: Lúpulo de carácter floral y cítrico es lo que predomina, pero más cargado hacia lo floral, además de ligero dulzor de las maltas, algunas notas caramelo. SABOR: de entrada amargor moderado ligero, seguido de notas florales y cítricas de los lúpulos usados, seguido de notas dulces de las maltas, ligeras notas a caramelo; en el retrogusto queda ese amargor medio ligero, seco y no astringente. SENSACIÓN: Cuerpo ligero, carbonatación media ya que se llega a sentir algo de crispar en la lengua. RESUMEN: Una buena cerveza de acuerdo al estilo, bastante sesionable y refrescante.

GoufCustom (1574) - HONG KONG - APR 9, 2016


355 ml bottle as “Goose Island IPA” bought at Q-Club in SoHo, Central.

Looks: Translucent orange honey colour; Less than one-quarter finger head and residual soapy white foam which fades in 10 seconds; Fair sticky lacing with notable slight carbonation.

Aroma: Quite fragrant Ale malt, with grapefruit, floral, light honey, lemon peel, orange, resin and light grass.

Taste: Mid to light sweet Ale malt, with light candied fruits, light grapefruit, floral, strong molasses, resins, biscuits, lemon, mid to high bitter hops and grass.

Body: Close to medium body. Dry, slick and oozy palate.

Mouth Feel: Very good Ale maltyness in a slick and smooth background. Simple but quite tasty juicy fruits and grapefruits dominate. Nice strong sweetness with floral match with strong resin ooze. Fair lemon to round. Pretty good!

Hoppiness: Grapefruit, floral, light honey, lemon peel, orange, resin in nose. Candied fruits, light grapefruit, floral, resins, lemon and grass in taste. Bitterness is moderately strong for a lasting, mid-to-high astringent bitter sweet finish.

After Taste: Quite dry. Oozy and fruity-bitter to mouth.

Comments: For typical craft IPA, this is pretty mild in aroma and taste, yet the candied fruit and strong ooze make this light one pretty enticing to drink. Some dry hopping and strong body will do this one more justice. Okay.

Piwo prosto ze Stanów ;) Dość jasny, złoty kolor i bardzo ładna, biała, puszysta piana. Koronka na szkle wręcz wzorowa. Piwo wygrywało kilka razy w amerykańskich konkursach w kategorii English IPA. Aromat świeży, słodowy, chmielowy. W smaku przyjemne cytrusy, specyficzna goryczka, trudna od opisania, bo z jednej strony intensywna, z drugiej pozostawia lekki, aksamitny posmak w ustach. Ogólnie wytrawne, z lekką słodyczą w tle. Średnie, w kierunku niskiego wysycenie sprawia, że Goose IPA jest ekstremalnie pijalne. Baaardzo fajne piwo!

Draught at Michael Jordan at Grand Central. Pours amber with a off white head. Malty with a taste of fudge, a little nutty and some oranges.
