Pours a clear golden orange color, nice inch of thick off white head that lasts well and leaves plenty of lace. Good looking brew. Nose shows plenty of spicy and earthy, floral hops, some smooth biscuity malt. Good aroma, if slightly muted. Flavor starts with a clean, crisp punch of spicy bitterness, moves into some light floral notes, bits of clean citrus. Clean, dry malt backbone. More light bitterness on the finish. Palate is crisp and clean, medium carbonation, with a lightly bitter finish. Overall a very good IPA with a somewhat unique hop profile.

This is a very smooth IPA. The hops don't hit you too hard, but they're there. Just last night I was wondering what's wrong with my beer palate, I only seem impressed by the extremes. I'm glad this proves that I can still appreciate subtle.

This one is so common to my area that I think it often gets overlooked. Goose Island brews a damn fine IPA. It may not get the attention of a stone of Dogfish Head, and this may be justified, but, it is very close to the elite IPAs and it is relatively inexpensive and always available. It pours amber and pretty clear, has good hop aroma, and very good flavor, and a very good dry finish. Overall-very solid, a GREAT session beer!

Bottle from Sainsburys Team Valley. A fantastic IPA. Delicate floral and fruity flavour, but still full bodied and satisfying

A favorite IPA. Not quite as robust as some but excellent nonetheless. More on the order of Alpha King than Two Hearted, say. Consistently great, nicely balanced.

Bottle. Pours clear amber with a decent white head that disappears quickly leaving a thin ring and some lacing. Hints of pine and grass in the aroma. Taste is medium bitter and almost no sweetness. Average carbonation, light to medium body, flavors of grapefruit, maybe other citrus, no perceptible malt, medium texture and a solidly bitter finish that shows a sticky sweetness in the far finish.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly hazy golden yellow body. Quickly diminshing white head with no lacing.
Hops dominate the aroma but there's also an underlying sour malt aroma too.
Lots of hops with a nice hint of malt. Sweet with a lingering bitterness. Simple.
Medium-bodied with a crisp finish.
