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.

ben4321 (6232) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 10, 2009
Location: 12 oz bottle that jcos brought back from Cleveland, 9/10/09

Aroma: Citrus aroma, grapefruit, some floral hops
Appearance: Slightly hazy amber-orange color, lasting white head, decent amount of lace
Flavor: Nice, uncomplicated citrus hop flavor, some sweetness
Palate: Medium body, nice relatively long duration
Overall Impression: This is a really solid, simple, but good, citrus IPA. Not in-your-face, not overly complicated, just a nice, easy drinking, tasty brew. Something that would make a perfect session beer (though its a little high in ABV for the true sense of the phrase) for someone with similar preferences to me.

Goose Island India Pale Ale is a hazy golden beer that leaves a white ring around the glass. It has a hoppy citrus aroma. Pine resin is detected. It smells slightly sweet and floral. It has a lively, smooth medium body with a crisp finish. It has a nice piny bitterness thats well balanced by a light sweetness. It tastes so fresh and so good!

13mikey (503) - New Hope, Minnesota, USA - AUG 25, 2009
Bottle from MGM Mankato, pours with a golden browncolor, foamy white head that lasts a few minutes. Definite hop smell with some light floral and fruity notes. Flavor is definitely dominated by the hops in a good way, with the citrus flavor sneaking in. Lingering bitter finish that keeps the hops on your tongue.
