Had a six pack from race track watching the national championship game. While this beer food not get a great rating it has a nice subtle hop aroma that is unique. Taste is sweet and citrus. I would drink again. Good session beer

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
My first Goose Island experience, poured into a goblet like oversized wine glass, this 355ml bottle comfortably fit in. Very little head, perhaps my method of pouring was awful, I suppose it was. Anyway, this is a good quality India Pale Ale. Lemon & Grapefruit on the nose, its golden in colour, perhaps a little amber. A medium bitterness, quite hoppy. The alcohol is well hidden and its fairly smooth, silky even on the palate making it quite a pleasureable drinking experience. Overall, 15 because I didn’t quite know what to expect.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2007 Very much a mediocre IPA. Some mild flavor of hops, grapefruit, malt, and yeast but neither well blended nor well balanced. Finish tastes like cardboard.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudy to mostly clear golden, honey color. Thin white head that dissipated rather quickly. Although, it did leave some lacing on the glass as I sipped. Very prominent, fresh, floral, perfumy hops in the nose was the first characteristic. Had a very slight hint of fruit underlying the floral aroma. The taste had a very pronounced bitterness with a sweet flavor. Very punchy with the bitter aftertaste. Really hangs around on the palate. I Like It!!! Had a mostly thin mouthfeel. To me it was light, crisp and smooth. Easily drinkable. Reminds me of the freshness of spring. Love the bitterness of this brew and the smell was possibly the best aspect of the beer. This beer goes well with the warm spring and summer days.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A hazy pale amber beer with a lasting white head. Hop aromas are grassy and slightly spicy. The malty aroma is of fresh sweet wort. Both play a big part which is great. a very creamy mouth feel, the carbonation is pretty much perfect for the beer. Awesome balance for my palate at least. Distinctly american but also tradtional in many ways.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Amber with a light white medium head. Flowery hops - not as strong as I hoped. Strong lasting bitterness with minimal malt to back it up. Good full body.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear, golden color with minimal white head. Aroma is nice mix of hops (citrus, pine & floral) and malt. This sort of reminds me of a weak 90 Minute IPA in both taste and aroma. Taste is similar with a nice citrus flavor along with some sweet malt and a bitter finish. The body is light to medium. Overall this beer is very clean and smooth but I prefer something a little more substantial.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy warm golden. A really nice white/beige head that says "come drink me now!!" Aroma is butterscotch, peanuts and freshly baked bread. Some floral notes aswell. Taste is sweet, juicy and hoppy. Also a lot of floral flavours, bergamot and orange peel. Sustaining bitter finish. Very drinkable. A bit too sweet for my liking but still a very solid IPA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The aroma was fruitily hoppy with hints of citrus/apricot. The appearance was yellow-orange. The flavor was lightly sweet up front with a hoppy, pine cone-like finish with a lingering aftertaste - just the way I like it!!! The mouthfeel was pleasantly fizzy on the tip of my tongue and medium bodied. Overal a nice IPA.
