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.

Fair. Nothing special here. Although it is easy to drink. The hops are more subtle, so it might be a good started IPA for some. Plus, it’s beer and beer is good. Aroma is somewhat underwhelming, and the taste is somewhat better then where the aroma leads you...a dollar or two more would probably get you something awesome, though...

Biroholik (171) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - FEB 9, 2016
Kolor: Pomarańczowy. Piwo jest w 100% klarowne.
Piana: Drobno pęcherzykowa, ciemno biała. Warstewka długo się utrzymuje i bardzo ładnie zdobi ścianki szkla. Bardzo fajnie zaznacza każdy łyk.
Zapach: Niesamowity, głęboki i niezapomniany aromat igiełek sosnowych. Bardzo dominujący żywiczny zapach przykrywający nawet owocową woń. Czuć też również herbatę i lekki karmel.
Smak: W smaku nuty żywiczne połączone z grejpfrutową owocowością oraz skórką pomarańczy. Piwo ma także herbaciano-ziołowy profil. Prócz tego można w nim znaleźć trochę karmelu i trawiastych akcentów. Goryczka jest solidna i dość długa. Finisz wyrażnie ziołowy z delikatnym grejpfrutem. Odczucie w ustach średniopełne. Bardzo dobrze zbalansowane piwo.
Wysycenie: Niskie.
Podsumowanie:
Goose Island IPA to jedno z najbardziej rozpoznawalnych i znanych IPA na świecie. Sam browar to potęga! Wystarczy spojrzeć na ich profil na FB - 538 tys. polubień na FB! Mało który browar w Europie może się poszczycić taką liczbą. Browar ma siedzibę w Chicago. Bardzo dobre piwo. Tym różni się od innych IPA, że w aromacie można w nim wyczuć przede wszystkim nuty żywiczne, a dopiero w drugiej kolejności czuć owoce cytrusowe. Profil piwa jest również dość oryginalny: są tutaj zioła, lekka trawiastość oraz herbaciane nuty (w klimacie Earl Grey). "Gąska" jest idealnie zbalansowana i przede wszystkim smaczna.

kingaugusta (157) - Georgia, USA - FEB 7, 2016
Pours clear copper with a fine white head. Nose is tame and typical IPA. Flavor profile is also very standard for the style with a touch of earthy tones on the back. Finish is quick and clean. Drinkable but unremarkable.

Xevious (43) - Amarillo, Texas, USA - FEB 7, 2016
An excellent example of a IPA. Pours a light gold with a head with some staying power. Smells of pine and grass, maybe a lemon. Straight up hop flower taste with a bitter finish. Downer is that it’s hard to find here.

Gespuccian (21) - Texas, USA - FEB 7, 2016
Just a solid IPA. Full mouth feel, piney aromas. Nice resin and citrus - maybe grapefruit on the palate. Crisp, hoppy finish. A very good single IPA. Goes splendidly with a grill and a hot day, and the one good thing about ABInbev is that I found this in Mexico on vacation.

lokis333 (220) - Biržai, LITHUANIA - JAN 30, 2016
Clear pineapple gold color with thick white foam. Aromas are sweet and hoppy, reminds of new world hops that are fruity, nice for an IPA. Palate, medium body, with hoppy bite on the mouth, honey smooth finish of bitter hops. Taste is hoppy, bit bitter also reminds of grass bitterness has some hints of grapefruit at the back too. Nice beer! Especialy as a sesstion IPA (if that it is what I think it is) would be nice and easy to drink and not wastery. If you are in a bar and you do not want lager take this.

TaxiDriver (1655) - Stadland, GERMANY - JAN 24, 2016
A fruity aroma of grapefruit, light bitter smell of hops. The head is small, white and milky with a normal duration. The body is dark orange. A light bitter taste, very dry in the mouth, the finish is long and bitter. The body is light to medium strong, very dry and light creamy with a lively carbonation.
