COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Pub brewed India Pale Ale that yields a higher gravity and slightly deeper hue than our perennial IPA, making it "mid way" between the IPA and Imperial IPA. Generous amounts of Amarillo hops were used and aged with oak and apple wood chips for distinctive character. Dispensed with Nitrogen and "slow poured" for a silky mouthfeel.

Tap at BT for the GI event. Pours a medium bright amber with a thin head. Aroma is orange mango citrus with mint earth some green grassy hints and weeds, - someone said this was hopped only with Horizon light carapils malt backbone. Flavor is more earthy minty and citrus hints, a bit leather nice honey sweetness with some orange zest, citrus oils and almost a hint of lemon verbena and slight soapiness as it warms and in the finish. Ok

(on bottle) Mellow fruity(abricot and pear) aroma. Soft carbonation. Steady, going more harsh and tight in the hopping, as one sips on. Firm hopped, to the sweet side.

tmoreau (3700) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JAN 25, 2010
One of Goose Island’s bonus beers at the CBS Brewpub Shootout in Chicago. Poured a hazed, orangy amber, with modest, off white foam to the head, and ribbons and spots of clingy lacing. The nose was mainly citrus, with light resin, and some fruit and malt sweetness. Smooth malt, and a nice, supportive hop bitterness followed the former notes into the flavor. Along with a medium body, the finish was lightly dry. A very decent, sessionable IPA.

JoeMcPhee (9267) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 13, 2009
Pale golden pour with a sticky white head. The nose is awesome… lots of rich pine and even more mango and pineapple over a light lemony citrus. There is also a bit of floral sweetness and a zesty fruitiness. Moderate palate with lots of juicy hop flavour over a moderately bitter finish. The malts stay with you all the way through to the finish, just serving as a counterpoint to the rich hoppiness. Light pine resinousness on the back. They should bottle this, because they’ve hit on a winner.

MoDog (927) - Griffith, Indiana, USA - SEP 11, 2009
On tap at GI Clybourn served in an English pint glass. Hazy, golden/orange pour with a thin head of off-white foam that quickly faded away. Decent lacing. The aroma favored grapefruit with a touch of pale malt. The flavor was fairly hoppy, but not overly bitter. Crisp citrus and grapefruit with minimal malt sweetness. Medium-bodied with light carbonation. An easy drinking IPA. Not in your face or aggressive. Decent.
