4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Now this is what I’m talking about! Great bright color, citric, piney aroma, tremendous bitter flavor and aftertaste, with just enough malt to keep it even. Big Daddy fans will really like this one. Certainly the best non-West Coast IPA I’ve had to date.

One of the best American beers easily available in Scotland. Heavy, fruity american (cascade?) hop aroma, orangey, resinous, with some vanilla and pepper. Lovely medium mouthfeel with oily, bitterness and a long bitter finish, again with fruit evident as well as bags of hops.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 20, 2014 12 oz Bottle. The beer pours to a light copper color with a small white head. The aroma is very strong with citrus, floral & a small amount of caramel. The taste has a light body with a slightly sweet taste upfront with a mild bitter finish. Overall an average IPA for me.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden in color with a medium head. Aroma is citrus and a hint of pine. Thin in body with good carbonation. Flavor is subtle, but quite good with citrus, malt sweetness and a but of a hop bite.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From the bottle. Cloudy golden pour with fine head. Sour citrus with floral hints. Long bitter finish. High carbonation, perhaps a little too gassy. Not a session beer but overall very nice.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

On tap @ Applebees. Pours a dirty amber with a nice head of white foam. Aroma is of light pine with some citrus. Taste is very crisp and refreshing. Light pine with some semi-sweet citrus. Not harsh or bitter at all. Very enjoyable. Not what I expected from an IPA. Was great with a spicy meal.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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

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.
