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.

bottle. Pours a clear golden orange color, nice inch of thick off white head that lasts well and leaves plenty of lace. Good looking brew. Nose shows plenty of spicy and earthy, floral hops, some smooth biscuity malt. Good aroma, if slightly muted. Flavor starts with a clean, crisp punch of spicy bitterness, moves into some light floral notes, bits of clean citrus. Clean, dry malt backbone. More light bitterness on the finish. Palate is crisp and clean, medium carbonation, with a lightly bitter finish. Overall a very good IPA with a somewhat unique hop profile.

Stoned99 (286) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 28, 2015
On tap at BierMarkt Montreal. Aroma: peaches, citrus, orange zest, spices. App: clear copper with medium white head and some lacing. Taste and palate: medium creamy body, clean, light medium dry bitter finish. Overall: a great beer on tap. Love the peaches attack. Would like it to be more piney and less clean but overall this is really a good surprise.

This beer costs over $8. It has a lighter IPA taste to it. This is worth going Goose Island Brewery when in O'Hare to enjoy the beer.
