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.

acearl (429) - The Ham, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 5, 2012
12 oz bottle, slightly hazy light gold pour, big creamy white lasting head, good lacing, aroma of citrus and lets you know it will be crisp, light sweet malt, nice hop balance, on the grapefruit side, light to medium body does have that oily texture but therefore not all that complex, lowish alcohol % nice and drinkable, good for the summer to drink a few, more American than English though

natejgood (428) - Bozeman, Montana, USA - FEB 10, 2013
Pours a medium golden color with a nice white head that doesnít go down too fast. Aroma of hops, citrus and pine. Maybe a bit of hay as well. Crisp in the mouth. Nice flavor of hops, though not too bitter, and a bit of pine. This is an easy drinking IPA that isnít overpowering in flavor or smell but goes down easy.

TomTron (427) - Aiken, South Carolina, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Pours a clear light amber with a thin white head. Aromas of some citrus and floral hops but rather tame. Flavor is hop heavy with a slight malt backbone and a bitter dry finish. First Goose Iíve tried and I will say this is a highly drinkable IPA. Not near the best Iíve tried but solid nonetheless.

Zekada (427) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - SEP 8, 2014
Bottle from beermerchants.com. Aroma has some subtle hops and is bit sweet together with some fruits. Pours dark orange with a rich white head. Taste is very hoppy and has taste of fruits, citrus and grape fruit. Palate has a fresh zing and a sweet feeling. Overall a surprisingly fresh beer.

RateandPillage (426) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 3, 2005
Very nice floral aroma. Pours slightly hazy and light orange. Off-white head with large bubbles fades quickly. Very good balance between malt and hops. Well carbonated and light on the palate. Maybe a bit thin. Overall a very nice IPA.

Average IPA, Iíve had this a bunch over the years and am reading it retrosprectively. Good citrus/bitter balance. Crisp and smooth to drink.

madcow75 (426) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 26, 2006
Older bottle. Pours golden with a thin white head. Decent hop aroma, floral, citrus and soapy with a good malt background. Taste is more malty than I wouldíve thought, decent floral/citrus hop taste, but not enough for my taste. Some nice caramel notes in the finish. Medium body, a little carbonation.

Bottle. Pours gold with thick white head. Aroma is floral with grapefruit. Flavor is the same with some tropical fruit. Solid IPA.

Tom Servo (424) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUL 11, 2005
A little disappointing in the hop department. Has a slightly bitter nose, very biting. The malt is apparent in the aroma. Nice amber coloring, slightly hazy. Flavor is nice and balanced, which is nice for most, though I prefer more hop profile, hence my disappointment. Smooth finish, with a touch of fruit (citrus) at the end. Overall, not my preferred IPA, but I wouldnít turn it down.
