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.

Dacrza (516) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - FEB 21, 2014
DATE TASTED: February 14, 2014... GLASSWARE: Corsendonk thistle...OCCASION: in between storms--with another of Dave’s Super Bowl leftovers... APPEARANCE: massive, mountainous white head that begins as an iceberg peak; consistently active, orange amber body; glass lip to beer top lacing... AROMA: aromatic floral hops; slightly malty; piques the interest...PALATE: creamy, active and warming at the throat; the modest alcohol is properly situated--a balanced mouthfeel...TASTE: powerful,, cutting, arresting--any siege-like hyperbole aptly fits; wonderfully sprucey and citric without being overbearing... OVERALL: kudos to Dave for his Super Bowl selections--both Honker’s and the IPA play well as samplings or sessionables; a big IPA that remains accessible and relatively affordable...

@Stoutandlager. Bičre avec un col persistant et une belle robe cuivrée. Le nez est assez citronné avec des effluves de caramel suret fruité (agrumes). En bouche, le maltage caramélisé fruité aux agrumes est assez lourd. Ce corp rond, biscuité, rend le palais sec mais la langue pateuse, voire crémeuse, avec un goűt de mandarine ou de mangue. L’amérisation est moyennement longue sur la fin et se termine avec une petite pointe d’acreté. Bičre avec un profil plus "Pale Ale", que "Extra Hoppy". Classique.

adster (341) - HUNGARY - SEP 16, 2014
Világos réz színe telt, gazdag illatokat rejt, természetesen az aromakomlók alkotta gyantás, cukrozott, aszalt trópusi gyümölcsös koordináta-rendszer mentén, belekóstolva pedig önkéntelenül is elmormol egy imát az ember: "bárcsak nálunk is efféle lenne az alapsör". Mély, komplex ízek, melyek ugyan távoli rokonságot mutatnak egy bizonyos világos duplabakoknál megfigyelt ízvilággal, amiben a malátás édesség vastag kontúrvonalai képviselik a fő irányvonalat, egy efféle IPA esetében azonban azok mintegy kedves bevezetésként szolgálnak a grapefruitos, szegfűs kesernye helyreigazító jellegéhez.

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

slowrunner77 (1879) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 11, 2014
"Spicy hops seem to be English leaning though there’s some fruit and citrus as well in the flavor. This is a solid classic India pale ale. Enjoyed though not a standout, one I’d use to introduce a newb to the style."

MarkoNm (534) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - SEP 9, 2014
Pours a orangey golden color topped with an average white head. Mild citrusy hops in the aroma, nice. The taste starts more neutral, followed by an average bitterness and some caramel. Bittery finish and aftertaste.

Zekada (137) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - SEP 8, 2014
Bottle from beermerchants.com. Aroma has some subtle hops and is bit sweet together with some fruits. Pours dark orange with a rich white head. Taste is very hoppy and has taste of fruits, citrus and grape fruit. Palate has a fresh zing and a sweet feeling. Overall a surprisingly fresh beer.

sloshgator (426) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Goose Island India Pale Ale is a pleasant and tasty IPA. Amber coloring with a decent head giving off floral aroma. Taste is floral and tropical with a low bitter finish. Nicely balanced with the malt. Goose Island IPA is everything it is quacked up to be.

devilben02 (277) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 5, 2014
Pours a bright, gleaming orange color, with a big, creamy head that clings to the glass. The aroma isn’t 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 isn’t as much lingering bitterness as I expected. Overall, this is a solid but unremarkable IPA that I will gladly drink up but won’t seek out.
