Bottled. Amber colour, small white head. Aroma is fruits, wood and strong fruityness. Flavour is US hops along with some grassy and mild spicy notes. JamesMulvenon (26) - USA - AUG 4, 2008
Drank this one at the lakehouse in Northern Michigan, which always seems to have a good supply of Goose Island beers. Up in the light, the beer is a dark golden yellow-orange, with the proper haze for the style and a thick white head. The citrus hop aroma is inviting, not overpowering. The flavor, particularly the middle, is medium-bodied and slightly more malt than hopes, and the palate is solid from front to back. Overall, a very balanced and drinkable pale ale. I think I’ll have another! Bragesnak (5394) - Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 3, 2008
Amber - white head. Aroma of caramel and bread. Flavor hoppy with a little bitterness. tool2scream (188) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 28, 2008
There was just nothing to this beer. The smell was very light, almost nonexistent. The flavor was very bland and lasted only a short second. Absolutely no aftertaste. I was extremely disapointed by this brew. douglas88 (9178) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 25, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2008 Bottle bought in Chicago. Aroma is sweet toasty notes and caramel. The taste is a smooth and crisp malt with a touch of hops and some bitterness. A very nice EPA, smooth and a crisp hop bite.

Clear amber, nice long lasting head, strong notes of hops, grapefruit, spices, flower, some caramalt. Mainly bitter and bitter finish. PhillyHomeBrew (176) - Forest Hills, New York, USA - JUL 7, 2008
Body is dark yellowish brown with very little head. The aroma is sweet like a mixture of honey, flowers, lemon and orange. The flavor is fairly sweet as well, but kind of watery tasting without a whole lot of carbonation (might just be the tap) . There is a malty flavor with a bit of orange and lemon. Not much hops.
