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.

FrkAabenhuus (147) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 25, 2005
Bottled. Deep golden colour, with a fine white head. Nose of yeast, fruit and hops. Malty, hoppy flavor, but to watery. could need more spices and hops. This was a dissapointment...

Perkeo (322) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 14, 2005
The requisite pine and citrus aroma, leaning towards grapefruit, wafts from this hazy deep golden ale with orange highlights. Flavor is pretty zippy but leans toward the overt bitterness with citrus skin harshness covering up some moderate fruit, a little fuzzy with pine resin burps. Not my fave IPA but drinkable.

OldMrCrow (1756) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 29, 2005
From the bottle.

This one pours a surprisingly light golden with a moderate though short-lived head. The aroma is a picnic of marmalade on whole-grain toast in a pine woods. While the flavor is pleasant enough (if not particularly intense in either its hop or malt profiles), the palate is a bit disapppointing - watery, and overly carbonated. The finish is of dry, slightly metallic, cut-hay hops.

Engelsmann (651) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 12, 2005
Bottled. Pours a dark, clear golden, with a white head. Aroma is hoppy, and slightly sweet, notes of pine and grapefruit. Taste is sweet malts, and a hoppy bitterness. Medium bitter aftertaste

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 16, 2005
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Cloudy light amber colour with a small, creamy head. Very lovely hoppy aroma. Distinct fruity notes, citrus - perhaps grapefruit? Malty with notes of caramel. Marked bitter finish. Very nice and typical American IPA. 160905

dp (608) - uniontown, Ohio, USA - NOV 12, 2005
Hoppy, floral essence, kind of a perfumy aftertaste in a good way. Will look for more goose island products.

PorterPounder (5339) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 28, 2005
Happy Deli, NYC; 12 oz bottle. Solid Midwestern IPA accentuated with plenty of West Coast hoppiness. Light orange appearance, light white head, decent lacing. Fresh, floral aroma with some light citrus notes. Flavor has a strong ctirusy bent balanced with some malty, nutty notes. Overall, a solid IPA.

UPDATED: SEP 5, 2007 pours a slightly hazy orangish gold. aroma is of lemon, little hops as well. taste starts sweet and has a decent bitter finish. had with their honkers ale and thought it was very similar, slightly more bitter.
