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.

Pours a bright orange/gold with a huge head that leaves lots of lacing on the glass. I detected grapefruit and pine notes. Has just the right amount of bitterness for an IPA.

12 oz.Bottle: Pours a Red/Amber color with a large sustaing foamy white head. Aroma is big flowery hops, some light fruit, and a little pepper spice. Flavor is hop dominated, sweeter hops at that, with a dry bitter lasting finish. Couldíve used far more balance.

Tap at Holy Grail in Cincinnati. This was just listed as Goose Island, with pale ale in parentheses. But, since the rest of the selection there was mostly BMC, Iím guessing they meant it was this one. (If anyone knows for sure, please correct me if Iím wrong) Poured clear and golden with a short head. Good aroma of grassy hops and citrus fruit. Flavor and mouthfeel were pretty well balanced and complex. Tons of dry-hopped goodness along with lemon and orange citrus, a tiny bit of malty sweetness and a little oakiness thrown in for good measure. Goes down dry and crisp. Overall, very good.

Orangish color with medium head. Not overwhelming with the hops aroma but solid.Hoppy bitter taste that finishes the same way. A average IPA

AndresTM (361) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 20, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2015 Nice but simple. The head doesnít stick around for too long. Relatively light carbonation; a great, hoppy aroma with hints of pineapple; and a reasonably bitter taste that is very accessible for an IPA. Overall, very nice and drinkable. Points off because I was expecting a bit more body.

Pours light amber with white head on tap. Hoppy and fruity aroma. Not very hoppy taste but smooth overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

just poured a 12oz bottle of this into my trusty beer glass. It has a nice orange/amber color. The aroma is a little weak for my liking. And then the taste; It’s a bit on the weak side for my tastes, It’s almost between a good pale ale and a mild IPA(which is kind of an oxymoron) But I would buy it again, if the price was right Cheers!

UPDATED: AUG 27, 2007 I donít go for this style of beer. I like things a little on smoother side. While this is a well crafted beer I just donít care for many Pale Aleís Grapefruit notes for sure.
