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.

Wow! Well done, Goose! 12oz bottle available all over the place packs a fantastic IPA. Pours a cloudy pale orange with yellow edges and a thin resiny head. Aroma is that inviting grapefruit/pine/bread combination found in many others in the style. Flavor is where this brew separates itself from other common shelf bottles. Creamy texture at first brings a great amount of malt (caramel flavor) to balance the moderate hop bite and citrus acidity. As those flavors evolve, the texture dries out and leaves a pleasant finish.

Poured from the bottle a pure golden color with a big fluffy white head. Floral aroma immediately filled my nose, and the hops create a fruity flavor and a nice finish. A treat to have - thanks to my friend timdanchanta who found this one on a recent trip to the Windy City.

AbbeyRoade (514) - Missouri, USA - SEP 16, 2013
Aroma is a bit piney with light hop. Taste is pretty bitter/sour and not sweet. Not balanced well. Kind of a gross hop flavor. Bleh.

ChiGuy68 (513) - Illinois, USA - JAN 7, 2014
Tasted from a 12oz. bottle. It poured a clear amber with a frothy off white head and streaky lacing. Has a grassy hop aroma. Well hopped with a lasting bitter finish.

scotchzombie (513) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - SEP 5, 2013
Pours a hazy yellow-orange with a small white head. Aroma is sweet grass and citrus - marmalade toast. Taste is smooth and drinkable. Hopped, but not wildly. Flavors of mild citrus and some sweet malt that lingers on the palate. Very little bitterness beyond the aftertaste. This is not a hardcore IPA that will set hop-heads atwitter, but it really is quite enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at the brewery. Not the strong hop taste in most good pale ales. The lightness and lack of a strong flavor does go well with the good food severed at the brewery.

Una ipa di buon livello, colore dorato, aroma di erbe leggero, media amarezza, carbonazione giusta.

VikingHammer (506) - Lynnfield, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 6, 2007
Murky dark orange pour with a nice white head. Not a ton of hops in the aroma, as I was expecting. Flavors were sweet with a nice hop base. Very nice dry end.
