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.

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2014 Bottled at some pub in Glasgow, UK. Hazy golden colored, white head. Very pleasant hoppy nose, lots of fruit, pine. Hopbitter flavor, fruity notes again, very balanced. Lasting hoppy finish. Very complex yet easy to drink beer, exactly how i like my IPA. A beer i could drink all evening (and so i did...).

355 ml bottle. Dark golden with small orange head. Aroma of caramel and grassy and flowery hops. Malts and hops goes very well together. Taste of caramel with lots of grassy hops. Bitterness is relatively low considering the aroma hop level. Really nice.

Very good IPA. One of the first few IPA’s I ever had when just starting out trying new craft beers. Still one of the best I have ever had.

35,5cl bottle - Simply superb is selling Goose Island IPA short... by quite a mile! The aroma is spectacular, comparing strongly with Meantime or Brewdog IPA. Beautiful amber with only a very slight bubble, small forthy white head. One of the best IPA’s out on the market.

Cantabrian (806) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 22, 2013
Bottle, at O’Hare brewery pub. Wonderful aroma of sweet grapes, pine, grapefruit and passionfruit. The beer pours light copper, just too translucent, with a beautiful creamy white head. The flavour includes all that fruit basket mentioned above - with that pine resin sticking to the palate - over a honey/malt/biscuit base. Very well-balanced, this is a beer to have at home. I am thrilled that NZ suppliers of craft beer have this one on stock now. Although it has been criticised, I love the presentation/label. The naivity of that near nursery rhymes goose is brilliant, when the original name for the river island was likely based on Canada Geese.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours golden with a white head. Taste citrus, sweet, pine. I thought was pretty good. I would definitely drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
