COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Long days and warm nights awaken the city. The list of neighborhood festivals is endless. As is the great music that brings us together in parks and parking lots. We brewed our Session IPA to be easy drinking and endlessly refreshing, so you can enjoy every encore. Bright note of fresh oranges and other citrus fruit with a mild body that is crisp on the palate.

Admin Note: Although this is similar to Forcone, Goose Island assures me this beer is a different recipe for large scale release in 2014 evolved from that original batch for Pitchfork Music Festival 2013.

Really nice session IPA from Goose Island! I got plenty of hop flavor with the lower alcohol volume. The beer also had a robust, bready, malty flavor for balance. I enjoyed the flavors of oranges, grapefruit, bread, a hint of caramel and some lemon.

341ml bottle. Pours a clear gold with a large, frothy, long lasting, off-white head that leaves curtains of lace. Sweet aroma of orange, pine, floral hops and biscuit malt. Sweet fruity flavour of orange, tangerine, lemon, pine and biscuit malt with a dry, grassy bitter, light resinous finish. Light body with an oily texture and average carbonation. The aroma was better than the flavour but overall was still ok.

Bierdimpfe (550) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 16, 2016
Hazy straw color with moderate activity. Foamy white 2 finger head, lasting around 5-10 minutes, with poor legs. Flavors of pineapple, orange, sweet grains, coriander, piney herbal spices. Lots of fruity sweetness, with a moderate dose of bitter hops. Slick full body with crispy carbonation. Medium strength finish, lingering roasted malts, piney and grassy hops, with faint caramel. Not too intense, quite accessible. Tasty flavors, good freshness, nice session feel. Overall very good quality craft.

can. Poured clear amber with a rocky white head. Big orange citrus aroma. Light-medium body, active carbonation, quick refreshing finish. Flavour is sweet and citrusy, notes of wheat malts and bitter citrus peel, bold hops but not over powering.

Poured from can. Golden to slightly brown. Thin head. Light, fresh, lightly fruity aroma - citrus. Taste very close to aroma, heavy on the citrus for a moment. Balanced bitterness. Little palate. Very light & refreshing IPA. Nothing special but very enjoyable in summer heat.

Nothing objectively bad about this session IPA but it's kind of boring. Pours a bright dark yellow with not much head but some nice lacing. Crisp aroma. Weak on the tongue. Some hops but it's mild for an IPA. Nice pleasant finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
