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.

On tap in manhattan. Pours a clear maroon color, very attractive looking right from the start. Aroma is very very hoppy and floral with a little citrus and pine. Taste also reflects the high hop character and is bitter but balanced out by sweet citrus. Palate is smooth given the bitterness. Solid domestic IPA.

Turboninja (476) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 22, 2015
Bottle@hotel, from Food Emporium, NYC, USA. Medium fresh bit sweet aroma of citrus and fruits. Golden color with medium white head and slightly hazy liquid. Medium/light taste with citrus, hops and some hoppy malts. Medium balanced with medium taste spectrum and medium hoppy aftertaste of malts. Light body with medium carbonation. Overall refreshing though very simple product. Citrus is implemented quite well.

Hele mooie heldere kleur met minimale achuimkraag. Aroma is erg goed, de smaak is ook niet verkeerd.

swiseman (475) - Fredericton, New Brunswick, CANADA - APR 14, 2016
pours a light amber. thin, white head. strong floral aromas. strong bitterness with subtle hints of grapefruit and lemon peel. finish is similar with strong grass and citrus. While IBUs are reasonable, still lacks balance as bitterness seems to win over taste. Itís fine, but with a world of IPAs to choose from, this wonít make a recommended list.

Often the best beer available at bars, but nothing special. Pretty generic IPA.

Not good. Goose Island is extremely overrated. EXTREMELY. this is just a weird mess. It has a lot of gross sweet malt and hardly any hops to speak of. Itís just hard to drink. There are so many crafter breweries better than Goose Island. Do some homework and find some quality ones. Goose Island isnít it in my opinion. And while Iím at it the whole INBEV thing really irritates me.

natejgood (473) - Bozeman, Montana, USA - FEB 10, 2013
Pours a medium golden color with a nice white head that doesnít go down too fast. Aroma of hops, citrus and pine. Maybe a bit of hay as well. Crisp in the mouth. Nice flavor of hops, though not too bitter, and a bit of pine. This is an easy drinking IPA that isnít overpowering in flavor or smell but goes down easy.

The appearance is nothing special but fairly standard for the style. Frothy white head on an amber body. Aroma is dominated by the floral /citrus aroma. The taste however is supported by a nice malt backbone for an IPA. Mouthfeel is nice and buttery. I like this beer and would add it to my repurchase list. Give this one a shot.

On tap at Wrigleyville. Pours translucent orange with a foamy white head. Has all the standard IPA stuff going on...pine, citrus, etc. Had a nice bite on the finish. Itís not going to turn any heads but it is a fine example of a "normal" IPA.
