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.

Golden with a big fluffy head. Aroma is pine and citrus, kind of s modern classic IPA. Good citrusy, lemon his, but a little underwhelming when compared to new ones

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. It’s just hard to drink. There are so many crafter breweries better than Goose Island. Do some homework and find some quality ones. Goose Island isn’t it in my opinion. And while I’m at it the whole INBEV thing really irritates me.

@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 (395) - 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

"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."

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.
