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.

Clear golden body with off-white head & excellent lace. Malt and floral aromas. Hefty malt backbone with crisp hop bitterness. Balances well

TechMyst (167) - Fox River Grove, Illinois, USA - AUG 10, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2006 355ml bottle. Smells like sweet, Pine needles. My first IPA. Full and rich flavor. Soapy in the middle. Tastes like someone swept up after one took out the Christmas tree and made it into a beer...Slight banana taste also. Chill down a little and it is really quite nice.

355 ml fra Vinmonopolet. Fyldig ravfarve med hvitt godt skum. Aroma av tropiske frukter. Veldig fruktig smak med med middels bitterhet og litt sødme. God ettersmak. (Munkegata, 08.05.13)

Bottle, into tulip. Pours amber with a white head. Great lacing. Smells of oranges and resin, sort of reminds me of a furniture shop. Tastes slightly sweet on the way in, with a resounding dry, bitter finish that leaves you licking your teeth.

triskaideka (166) - Killarney, IRELAND - MAY 6, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2014 Bottle at home - poured amber with white head. Hoppy, floral aroma - long bitter finish. I liked it

ALCOHOLNIZM (164) - WARWICK, Alabama, USA - MAY 18, 2012
YET ANOTHER IPA IN A SEA OF IPAíS AND THIS ONE JUST DOESNíT CUT IT VASTLY OVERRATED. SLIGHTLY BITTER HOPS ARE PRESENT YET THE FLAVORS ARE SLIGHTLY OFF NOT DONE WELL ENOUGH FOR MY PREFERENCE, IF YOU HAVE A CHOICE OF THIS OR ANOTHER IPA GO THE OTHER, YET IF YOU HAVE A CHOICE OF THIS AND A LIGHT PILSNER THIS WILL DO. VERY SLIGHTLY ABOVE AVERAGE BEER FOR A MACRO BREW YET VERY BELOW AVERAGE IPA.

JuliusCaesar (162) - New Hampshire, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Balanced IPA. Bitter with a noticeable malt backing. God but not the best Iíve had.

walrussell (162) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 7, 2009
a good but not great ipa - a little bit of sourness and that chalkiness you get really bad in porters - but nice hoppiness - could be sweeter, but probably not unless it was also hoppier and more alcoholic - I think I just like my ipas a bit more bigger in every way.

HampshirePhil (160) - Portsmouth/London, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2013
35,5cl bottle - Simply superb is selling Goose Island IPA short... by quite a mile! The aroma is spectacular, comparing strongly with Meantime or Brewdog IPA. Beautiful amber with only a very slight bubble, small forthy white head. One of the best IPAís out on the market.

orville (160) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 17, 2006
aroma of sweet pine; pours a dark cloudy gold; flavor is a bold bitter but works as a session beer also. I love this beer, it has a great flavor and the hop resins linger on and on. This and the New Glarus IPA make living in the midwest alot less depressing.
