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.

Almost the perfect IPA. Great dark gold color. Very smooth. The hoppiness is distinct but smooth. The aroma isn't bold, but this is overcome by the great finish and overall taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is a very good IPA. Extremely well balanced between bitterness and taste. The aftertaste of this beer is delicious as well. I usually go back and forth between this beer and Dogfish Head 90 Minute in a night.

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.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2015 Hipster alert! Goose Island India Pale Ale was a great IPA years before great IPA’s were cool. This beer was one of the few great templates that other brewers now follow and look to as an example of the style. Today, its taste - complete with citrus and aggressive bitterness - is common. Truth be told, the steep prevalence of bold, innovative IPA’s makes this ale seem a little dated by modern standards. Still, there’s always room for a classic.

I normally prefer dark beer and was never much of a fan of IPA’s. Had this by chance. Very surprised and pleased. This will definitely be part of my Xmas cheer.

Bitter orange, grass, layers of manly florals and perfect for winter. Its a bitter chocolate orange beer and it is insanely luscious and delightful. I get em in for Christmas to keep it special. Its a quality IPA, typically American, typically bitter, sweetness. Could be the king of IPAs. Seasons greetings hop nerds!
