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.

Very good IPA. Not my favorite but tastes good and satifying. Nice head out of bottle. Hoppy flavor. Goose Island makes a fine product.

Golden honey color with a bit of a head that left some lacing on my Stella Artois tulip glass. Citrusy aroma. Nice balance of hops and malt. nothing overpowering, just a solid IPA.

On tap at Blackbird Public House. Hazy golden with a white head. Aroma is some berries/fruits. Strange, but pleasant. Taste is not so rich, with the same notes though. Same berries bitterness aftertaste. Unusual, interesting.

16 oz. can at Sugarfire O’Fallon MO. I just picked this one up thinking "it’s an IPA, how bad could it be?" It greatly exceeded all expectations, changing my mind about macrobrew IPA’s. Good pine and slight citrus hop character, great finish, definitely worth trying. Easy to find and unpretentious, you could do much worse than this when you need an IPA and a premium bottle shop is not available.

Hudspart (538) - Byron Center, Michigan, USA - DEC 29, 2007
Bottle: Very drinkable IPA. Pours yellow with a thick head. Aroma of hops, but not too strong. Could be a little more hoppy, but not bad.

Zarkam (538) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 17, 2014
355ml bottle. slightly hazy amber colour, small frothy off-white mostly lasting head, good lacing. Heavily hoppy fruity and slightly perfumey aroma of orange and herbs backed by moderate grainy malts. Taste is initially even somewhat sweet and malty, turning into a very bitter long finish with a moderate to heavy astringent feel. Medium body, initially dry and later oily mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Well above-average American craft IPA. Actually one of the best ones I tried, especially tastewise.

rdb84 (537) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 23, 2015
Golden amber color with modest white head. A: nice IPA, with a perfect balance between lemon and exotic fruits. Faint apple juice note. No extreme highs, just a nice blend. T: as expected, relatively bitter with some very distinct wood and floral notes. Bitterness that hits the palate first is apple, and bitter from exotic fruits. Floral notes follow, mostly rose water. After yeast deposit, the beer gets a bit of a doughy character (as opposed to a very crisp beer before the yeast). Bitterness abates relatively quickly, a fruity aftertaste is left.
