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 loverís 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 youíll remember.

Bottle. Cloudy and amber. Orangish aroma. Malty flavor with a nice bitter finish. Very tasty and easy to put down.

Very smooth and easy to drink. Not a great deal of bitterness, although the beer was refreshing and crisp. Didnít beat me over the head with hops either. Glad I picked it up, but not something I will keep in my regular rotation.

sbanach (222) - Alabama, USA - MAY 17, 2011
On draft at Clybourn goose island brewpub. This was a very good IPA. Iím not a fan of IPAs usually. Little head, thin ring, light/amber color. Medium body. Semi sweet from caramel. Aroma is citrus hops and distinguished grapefruit aroma and taste. I am going to guess they used cascade and amarillo hops in this one. High citrus aroma and crips, clean, and non lingering finish.

I was a little dissapointed with this....I think cause it was waaaaaaaaay past its best buy date so i think some of the flavors and aroma were off. not bad though Iím sure a fresh bottle would be outstanding!

gold in color. smells like toast with orange marmalade. starts sweet and citrusy, then a bit of a bitter hop bite... but not the 'ooomph' i like in my ipas. thin palate. not offensive, not great, but very drinkable.

Had on draft at Goose Island Brewery, Wrigleyville, Chicago, IL. Pours a hazy orange color with a think white head. Taste is grapefruit, pine, and caramel. Nice easy finish. Another great goose beer.

1guywith_aboat (216) - phenix city, Alabama, USA - JUL 13, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2013 Pours cloudy golden with a white head. Smells very grapefruity and grassy with a hint of sour fruit candy (ie. Sour punch straws, sour skittles). Taste is grapefruit and slight pine with a minimal malt prescence. Thin and very oily, smooth mouthfeel. Relatively high carbonation. Very tasty though it could benefit from some light colored specialty malts for a little more body. Kind of predictable for an IPA and nothing out of the ordinary, but still delicious and solid.

bembelembe (216) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 19, 2009
Smooth and oily textured ale. Light amber golden body with small head. Beautifully touched by strong orange and grapefruit flavor with floral hop bitterness. Fruity-perfume smell. Dry bitter-fruity aftertaste. Medium carbonated.

This was a very hoppy beer like it should be, both in the aroma and in flavor. I really liked this beer.
