Drank out at Prosperity this year. Remember being blown away actually. Great DIPA. Flavor packed and resinous through the finish. Doesn’t stick, it’s clean but packs a punch!

On draft at Isaac Newton’s. Nice notes of pine, hop, caramel malts and grapefruit. The blend was near perfect and the body was full. A very enjoyable brew.

Well if this is the beer that shows the name and ambition of the illinois we’re off to a bad start. I don’t know what is it with Goose Island. I think they are so overrated. Like extremely overrated. This one is no exception. Aroma is a sweet boozy mess. It’s almost nauseating. Let it warm up just couldn’t get a lot out of it. Taste is boozy and messy sweet weirdness. Some bitterness but just nothing that really saves this from being exactly what I expected. It’s kind of a let down to me. Probably won’t be trying anymore Goose Island beers.

Deep orange with thin head. Aroma of pine and grapefruit. Flavor of spicy hops and pine. Some alcohol warmth. Good but not great.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: clear medium orange, with one finger of frothy, bubbly white head and decent lacing. Aroma: fruity, with pineapple and mango most prominent, and lots of grapefruit and blood orange; malts are prominent with strong graham cracker pie crust and brown bread. Taste: hugely flavorful, with tropical and citrus fruits followed by slightly dank, resinous pine; big, toasty sweet malts to balance. Finish: strongly lingering bitterness, almost syrupy, with a pronounced boozy burn. Notes: A huge beer, with tons of juicy, fruity bitterness and a bunch of sweet toasty malts to balance. Alcohol was not well hidden at all, which detracted a bit from the overall experience. I’m no lightweight, and a single beer brought forth a boozy, burning buzz.

A solid imperial IPA. Pours dark golden with an impressive head. Bitter-sweetness, hints of grapefruit and apricot.

The color is a slightly hazy orange with a medium off-white head, and the aroma blends citrus and floral hops with light malts. The taste is quite bitter, slightly sour, and a touch sweet; the palate fuses a thick texture, bitter finish, medium-full body, and an average carbonation.

Had this at the Great Arkansas Beer Festival 2014. Pours a fairly clear orange with a nice head. Aroma is citrus with some slight pine. Flavor follows with more citrus than pine. A bit hot. Overall, a good beer.
