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.

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.

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.

A golden color with a white head. Aroma contains some pine, oranges, and lemons. The flavor is slightly bitter with some oranges, lemons, and tropical fruit notes. Aftertaste is bitter. Overall a nice session beer.

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

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!

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
