3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Somewhere between amber and gold in color with a thin white head. Aroma is floral with a touch of pine. Flavor is bright pine hops that finishes a bit sweet. It could have a little more malt to balance it out, aftertaste is a touch astringent. Still pretty tasty though.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thin light beige head of fine bubbles with decent carbonation. Rich malty aroma with lots of sweet caramel, fresh laundry, fresh pumpkin, piney hops and some toffee. Color is a hazy dark copper. A lot more hops presence in the flavor. Lots of piney hops, mild malts, cough syrup and tea leaves. Bit thin in the body and the result is a pretty hot brew. Sort of an unbalanced brew but still a tasty one.

Well alright, FINNALY a place in Delaware had the real thing. Stores out here had some Goose Island beers, but when I looked on the label it was brewed and bottle in New York. Bought a 6 pack and no where near the taste of the original Goose Islands. Now I went in a store in town and they had the real McCoy, brewed and bottled back in sweet home Chicago. I hope that they continue to carry the real thing .I live 10 miles from the Dogfish brewery, not I’ll have a pick n choose option between brew from two great brewery’s.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured way too gently by the new girl at WOB in Pensacola. No head, but it’s a murky, pretty golden-orange. Bubbles emanating from the bottom seemed to fight slowly through viscous liquid. Candied pineapple on the nose. Syrupy mouthfeel. Flavor is less fun than the nose. Orange and candied pineapple flavors.

Another beer from Goose Island that harshed my buzz. Small sample at mile, pours clear brown gold with medium lacing and small white head. Notes are grain alcohol and stale wood. Maybe a touch of orange booze to round out the grossness of this brew. Christ

Very nice, smooth IPA with a great bitter kick late. Not usually a fan but this could help turn me into a hop head

Sampled at Classic City Brewfest 2016. Pours a clear golden yellow from the bottle with fluffy white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma is nice citrus diesel hop profile, with a hint of caramel and pale malt behind. Taste follows, big IPA, but nicely balanced and well made.
