COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our IPA recalls a time when ales shipped from England to India were highly hopped to preserve their distinct taste during the long journey. The result, quite simply a hop lovers dream. And this classic ale adds a fruity aroma, set off by a dry malt middle, to ensure that the long hop finish is one youll remember.

On tap at the power plant. Nose is bright, with grapefruit, orange, and floral notes. Taste is big cascade, and just some light malt character. good lace and head retention. slick mouthfeel. nice balanced bitterness. a nice beer.

Thanks Barban for sharing. What a way to start of a rainy weekend. Classic, fuity ipa with notes of grape and peach. The taste is fresh but needs a little more body. But still a lovely ipa.

lusikka (7770) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 9, 2010
UPDATED: NOV 13, 2011 355 ml bottle @ Tuomari. Rated @ 11.8.2009.
Clear golden colour with a white head. The aroma is caramel sweet, hops, pine needles and malts. Hoppy flavour with sweet malts on the side. Light/medium bodied, oily/watery texture and soft carbonation. Well balanced but quite light in every aspect. (8+3+7+3+15, 3.6)

355 ml bottle. BBE 08.09.2012.
Pours a yellow colour with a white, thick, frothy and lacy head. Aroma of exotic fruits, floral hops and some pine needles. Flavour of floral hops, exotic fruits, pale malts, citrus, caramel and pine needles. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a bitter, floral and sweet finish. Slightly better than last I time had this.

On tap at Elephant & Castle in Chicago. Pours a clear orange straw color. Big white head with very good retention. Wonderful aroma of piney hops. Flavor is grass and earthy hops, but with a hint of toffee sweetness and roasted grains. Medium mouthfeel and lingering floral hop finish. Nice.

Die_Kapusta (191) - Malm, SWEDEN - AUG 31, 2010
Hazy warm golden. A really nice white/beige head that says "come drink me now!!" Aroma is butterscotch, peanuts and freshly baked bread. Some floral notes aswell. Taste is sweet, juicy and hoppy. Also a lot of floral flavours, bergamot and orange peel. Sustaining bitter finish. Very drinkable. A bit too sweet for my liking but still a very solid IPA.

Rating #406, bottle from Fish N Beer, brought by Amer

A bit unclear, dark golden beer with a little head. Aroma is strawberries, blackberries, elderflower, redcurrant, malts and cascade hops. Flavor is berries, especiall redcurrant and blackberries, but also a lot of bitterness starting already before the finish. Seems more bitter than a lot of other IPAs, mainly because the bitterness isnt isolated in the finish. Medium body and carbonation. Quite nice.

Snoop59 (105) - Penn Run, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 24, 2010
12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a medium off-white head that lasts throughout and leaves decent lacing. The aroma has quite a bit of malt with really nice citrus and floral notes. Excellent forward flavor of the pale ale malt with a finish that is spicy and floral. Extremely well balanced. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Really nice IPA

Goose Island really came through to create an "everyday" IPA that is perfect for a nice session. Spicy hops and clean finish with no fuss. No odd aftertaste or overly bitter hops that seem to appear in many other IPAs. This might be favorite non-DIPA.
