Comes out of the tap hazy amber with a nice fine-bubbled buff head. Aroma is quite hoppy, as resiny as woody. Flavor is very hoppy, in this case a little more woody, slightly sweet, with citrus and evergreen hints.firm texture has fizz to spare. Get goosed!

Pours with a very nice white head very easily. Taste is potent but not overly alcoholic. Very nice "grapefruit" hoppy flavor.

The Illinois has a thin, bone-colored head, a clear, burnt orange appearance, some bubbles, and minimal lacing left behind on the glass. The aroma is of sweet, sugary, malt, and fruity, hop resins. Taste is of those elements, with a very forward and robust hop oil bitterness. Sweetness and white bread are also noticed. Mouthfeel is high medium, and The Illinois finishes puckering dry. RJT

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.

Very refreshing, lighter colored DIPA. Grapefruit and zesty lemon effect. Very hoppy, fruity and floral.

My rating is pretty on point for this gem. And yes, it’s damn good. Hitting a max of 9% , this brew is incredibly smooth. Nice Mellon, citrus scent along with a mouthful of candy resin orange peel. A must have , if you’re going for a strong IPA. Cheers!

on tap at a tap take over at Provisions Market, great coppery amber pour into a snifter, wonderfully hoppy aroma. Taste is a delicious blend of multiple types of hops, a little bitter, a little bit sweet but all together delicious. This beer is just dandy, FLW would be proud to have his magnificent mile high masterpiece realized in this beer
