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.

A nice well-rounded IPA with no weaknesses but nothing that really stands out either. Aromatic but not too flowery. Flavorful but not too bitter.

Bottle from Waitrose. Amber colour. Nicely balanced. It's got a good body and slightly sweet with a very dry finish. A dependable ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Golden with a big fluffy head. Aroma is pine and citrus, kind of s modern classic IPA. Good citrusy, lemon his, but a little underwhelming when compared to new ones

Not good. Goose Island is extremely overrated. EXTREMELY. this is just a weird mess. It has a lot of gross sweet malt and hardly any hops to speak of. It’s just hard to drink. There are so many crafter breweries better than Goose Island. Do some homework and find some quality ones. Goose Island isn’t it in my opinion. And while I’m at it the whole INBEV thing really irritates me.

@Stoutandlager. Bière avec un col persistant et une belle robe cuivrée. Le nez est assez citronné avec des effluves de caramel suret fruité (agrumes). En bouche, le maltage caramélisé fruité aux agrumes est assez lourd. Ce corp rond, biscuité, rend le palais sec mais la langue pateuse, voire crémeuse, avec un goût de mandarine ou de mangue. L’amérisation est moyennement longue sur la fin et se termine avec une petite pointe d’acreté. Bière avec un profil plus "Pale Ale", que "Extra Hoppy". Classique.
