On tap. Itís ok. Bright citrus flavor and aroma. Nice lacing as well. A little maltier than Iíd hoped, but still ok.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled from bottle. Pours a slightly hazy copper-gold with a lasting, off-white head and remarkable lacing. Aroma is wonderfully hoppy: floral an grapefruit. Flavor is one-dimensionl as the hops (floral/pine resin) create such an astringency to obscure almost all of the malt profile. Medium-bodied and nicely carbonated. Wonderfully bitter IPA that would be much better if some of the flavor addition hops were removed (aroma and bittering addions are wonderfully done).

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. Quite a nice beer here... medium-strong aroma, quite fruity. Tastes fruity with a liquorish hint. leading into a soft bitter aftertaste. Holds a lovely body with a thin head... My first time drinking Goose Island... I have seen it around as wasnít sure whether I should risk it or not... quite nice, worth buying!

Poured from the bottle into a glass. A nice ale very easy to drink. Had as part of a variety pack and this was my fav of the three. A very light IPA

Bottle. Nothing particularly wrong with this. Definitely a great entry level IPA if you're trying to ease a newcomer into the style, but not all that impressive otherwise.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 30, 2014 355ml bottle. Cloudy orange colour with a lovely smooth white head. Strong floral, fruity hop aroma. The flavour has a lot of fruity sweetness, maybe some orange but with a nice bitter IPA finish. Lots of hops with a spicy quality and by no means overly bitter. Re-rated down as not as good as last time I drank it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Definitely a solid IPA. Smells quite floral and citrussy, as expected. Good hop aromas while pouring, with a nice sized head with good lacing. Taste is pretty crisp and clean, not too complex, but just enough malt to balance the choice hops. The spice is noticable, cant put my finger on it though. Nice refreshing finish, not bitter enough though. This beer needs a little more ABV, and a little more IBUís and it would be superb

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
pours a golden to slight copper color with a fluffy head and good lacing. the aroma is critrus, piney, some malt. the flavor is nice and citrus up front followed by a nice malt body and finished with almost a pineapple taste. the palate is a medium to heavier body. overall its is a nice crisp beer with a dry finish, this isnt the best i have ever had but its pretty good for being part of AB.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a bright, gleaming orange color, with a big, creamy head that clings to the glass. The aroma isnít overly skewed to the hoppy characteristics, with notes of citrus peel and pine contrasting against light bready malts. The flavor is a bit dull and earthy, although there is some bright pine character and a light bready sweetness at its base. The light, fine carbonation is nice, but there isnít as much lingering bitterness as I expected. Overall, this is a solid but unremarkable IPA that I will gladly drink up but wonít seek out.
