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.

12 oz bottle from HyVee. Aroma: Hoppy, citrus, not too complex. Appearance: Orange, slightly cloudy, kind of thick coming out of the bottle. Head is small and looks carbonated. Goes away fast. Flavor: Good amount of bitter hops, but not too much. Good carbonation and really smooth. Palate: Medium body. Crisp, clean, smooth, bubbly. Overall: Very drinkable. They serve it on tap in steins at DC’s in Iowa City, which made me very happy in school.

Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 12, 2008
Bottle, at home with renffisch, 25th June 2008. Golden with a small white head, this has a good nose of honeyed hops. Flavour wise, it’s hoppy but with a lovely perfumy sweetness. Good palate with a lasting hop taste, but not too fierce either. A good IPA.

Miver (609) - Silver Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 10, 2008
12 oz bottle. Poured clear amber with a medium sized off white head that left a nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus and floral hops and also fruity. Flavors of caramel malts, slight citrus hops, floral, fruity esters. Medium bodied and a pretty smooth drinkin IPA. Not bad.

Golden in color with scents of citrus hops that dominate. In the mouth it was medium-bodied and very well-balanced. To repeat, the thing that strikes me most is the balance.

As a new beer drinker, I enjoyed the citrus and berry at the first few sips. Aftertaste was not overpoweringly bitter but nicely hoppy and went down very nicely with a pork chop dinner. Would most certainly buy again.

vulcanmeister (269) - La Grande, Oregon, USA - JUL 5, 2008
Pours medium amber with abundant white lacing. Nice floral and grapefruity aroma. The taste is a nice balance of citrus, hops, and malt. Medium body and not overly bitter. Final taste is warm grapefruit and nice malty sweetness. A most enjoyable IPA!

Krazyjon (11) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - JUL 4, 2008
Copper-colored with loads of citrus for the nose. More citrus than pine on the palate but distintcly un-balanced towards hops, just the way an IPA should be. Completely under-rated here IMHO, this is my favorite straight IPA. Thank you Goose Island.

dwaggs2 (1297) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - JUL 3, 2008
This was the very first IPA I ever tried and it is still one of the best. Pours brown with a large white head. The hoppy taste is good on the palate. Goose Island knows their beers and this is one of their bests.

back to an old favorite. Aroma is leafy foliage from the hops clean and a touch of copper. great finish that Is bitter but also sweet malt. Copper color and not much head.
