hoppy, spicy aroma; taste is balanced between fruit, herbs, and hops. A good IPA. TKA300 (105) - Carbondale, Illinois, USA - DEC 26, 2008
Drank from a bottle. Poured a cloudy, copper-like color with a small head. Smelled of hops and slight citrus. Really well balanced taste with a little bite on the tongue. Very good IPA from Goose. boFNjackson (4230) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 26, 2008
Tap... Poured clear orange-amber with a frothy head. Floral aroma with hops and malt. Thick palate with a nice sizzle on the tongue. Flavors of sweet juice and floral herbs, leafy hops and malt for balance. Great, solid IPA. BeerBunker (966) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - DEC 22, 2008
Pours a light, murky orange with a small white head. Aroma is of hops, citrus, malt, and pine. Taste is of slightly bitter hops, with citrus and pine. Nice caramel malt backbone. Not overly bitter, but very sweet. A very drinkable beer. bretupdegraff (243) - Fishers, Indiana, USA - DEC 10, 2008
hoppy citrusy armoma -pous a slightly hazy copper orange with a white head. nice lacing on the glass- flavor is citrus and hops with a nice balance of malt - very nice flavor - this is not the best IPA but is a good one. I really enjoyed this. This is a fairly mild IPA and is very drinkable.

12oz bottle. Lively frothy carbonation. Filtered deep golden color. UK IPA style, full of hop flavor. Pleasant fresh grapefruit hop aroma. This is a really well done IPA. A very clean example of a world class IPA. jimmack34 (647) - Lancaster, Ohio, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Bottle. Pours coppery orange with smooth frothy head that lingers for a short while. Smells sweet and floral and citric, with some pine and grass. Tastes very smooth, sweet and hoppy, citric fruits present. Finishes smooth with a piney aftertaste. sebletitje (10477) - Enghien, BELGIUM - OCT 26, 2008
Courtesy of gillard.
Pours golden blonde with white head.
Aroma, sugary, hoppy fruity (grapefruit) and nice grains / malts.
Taste, nice caramel malt, hoppy floral / piney.
Very well balanced between malts and hops, doesn’t have the high bitterness of the west coast ipa’s. Botnik (142) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 23, 2008
I first tried this at a live theater, on tap, from a plastic cup. I was pleasantly surprised. Next time from a bottle with a proper glass, deep golden,off white head. I like the strong hops. I have a friend bring me a 6pk whenever he visits from Naperville, IL. 1010 (309) - Dublin, Ohio, USA - OCT 23, 2008
