Dogbrick (12360) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 25, 2002
This one was a little disappointing to me because it was not too heavy in the hops department. I dont know if that is a regional thing (west coast APAs seem to have more bite) but this is still a well rounded and smooth offering from Goose Island.

[thank you, Chris_o]
Pours clear copper with a fine, creamy film head. Aroma is softly hoppy, but not much else. Okay mouthfeel. Flavour is also softly hoppy, okay sweet malty, but only low bitterness. Very dull.
