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.

Draught at an airport restaurant. The beer is a good and reliable ipa: no surprises and all good. There’s sweetness in the taste in addition to the bitterness of the hops.

Bottle. Poured a golden yellowish color. Aroma of hops is nice. Taste is very balanced with hops all through your mouth.

AndresTM (368) - Texas, USA - MAY 20, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2015 Nice but simple. The head doesn’t 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 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.

Brad (364) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - JUN 6, 2005
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. Could’ve used far more balance.

SwedeDog (364) - Windsor, Connecticut, USA - OCT 17, 2005
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, I’m guessing they meant it was this one. (If anyone knows for sure, please correct me if I’m 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

Dark amber verging on copper. One finger of bright white head. Minimal lacing. Fairly filtered. On the nose it is a blending of citrus and pine. More of that on the palate, with some light malt in the mix. All fairly bitter. A little bit of grassiness in there too. I’d buy and drink this again.

From notes, O’Caseys, Manhattan, 6-7-14. On Tap, Poured slightly hazy golden. Aroma of flowers, lemon. Taste is nicely balanced between the sweet malt and bitter hops. Light body, smooth, nice light small bubble carbonation. Finishes with hints of oranges, lemon zest and herbs. Very nice!
