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.

Wow! Well done, Goose! 12oz bottle available all over the place packs a fantastic IPA. Pours a cloudy pale orange with yellow edges and a thin resiny head. Aroma is that inviting grapefruit/pine/bread combination found in many others in the style. Flavor is where this brew separates itself from other common shelf bottles. Creamy texture at first brings a great amount of malt (caramel flavor) to balance the moderate hop bite and citrus acidity. As those flavors evolve, the texture dries out and leaves a pleasant finish.

From bottle. Great fresh piney-resin hop aroma with good fruity notes. Rich sweet malt, too, but mostly fresh hops. Hazy orange amber with pillowy foamy white lacing head. Medium body with medium-high carbonation. Starts with medium sweetness of malt, ctirus fruit and apricot, followed by great fresh grassy-pine hops. Great balance with mild bitter finish, fruity. Nice IPA with awesome hop flavor but muted bitterness.

This is a fabulous everyday IPA. Pours a light semi-cloudy yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is citrus and hop. Taste is a nice light balance of hop bitterness and malt and citrus. Nothing is overpowering, the flavours all strike the palate at the same time and is really quite pleasant. I would drink this everyday if I had the opportunity.

Pours a darkish golden amber. Smells of sweet grapefruit hops. Tastes of grapefruit and slight hop bitter. Medium mouthfeel and not much of a linger on the tongue. Very nice session IPA.

UPDATED: JUL 1, 2010 Pours a slightly hazy amber-orange, with nice frothy head. Great head retention on this one through the entire pint. Aroma & taste is typical IPA citrus & pine, with nice balance. Very smooth. An excellent IPA.

Poured from bottle to pint glass shows a light orange/honey color. Light head w/lacey residue. A smokey orange like malt aroma. Light and citrus taste with a leaning to grapefruit flavor and a light grapefruit after taste. This would be good on a warm afternoon after going to a Cubs game.

Aroma....nice nose / not too hoppy Appearance...nice amber color; good sturdy head...hazy color Taste...that is the problem...enough for a IPA but huge Palate...medium body; a little thin; not quite bitter enough at end Overall..a good session IPA....
