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.

One of the best American beers easily available in Scotland. Heavy, fruity american (cascade?) hop aroma, orangey, resinous, with some vanilla and pepper. Lovely medium mouthfeel with oily, bitterness and a long bitter finish, again with fruit evident as well as bags of hops.

UPDATED: APR 20, 2014 12 oz Bottle. The beer pours to a light copper color with a small white head. The aroma is very strong with citrus, floral & a small amount of caramel. The taste has a light body with a slightly sweet taste upfront with a mild bitter finish. Overall an average IPA for me.

Not good. Goose Island is extremely overrated. EXTREMELY. this is just a weird mess. It has a lot of gross sweet malt and hardly any hops to speak of. Its just hard to drink. There are so many crafter breweries better than Goose Island. Do some homework and find some quality ones. Goose Island isnt it in my opinion. And while Im at it the whole INBEV thing really irritates me.

bobaidan (530) - Southington, Connecticut, USA - JUN 21, 2013
Golden in color with a medium head. Aroma is citrus and a hint of pine. Thin in body with good carbonation. Flavor is subtle, but quite good with citrus, malt sweetness and a but of a hop bite.

exeter (529) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 17, 2017
Pours a nice golden colour with excellent head and lacing. The taste is citrus, pine and earthiness. Smooth in the middle but bitter at the end. Too much pine and not enough citrus.

Foolishly, I often overlook this brew at the store. But, for the price, it is truly a special find. Citrusy and very well hopped, it is an IPA lovers dream. Always fresh, this one will become a standard in my fridge.

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.

Fairly typical, but also solid IPA. Tasty, good for summertime drinking, and pretty available these days. Rock on goose!

Very floral hop aroma with some melon. Taste is rose water, cracker malts, and mild grapefruit.

Pours pale amber. Great thick white head. Aroma of sweet malts, light citrus and pine. Taste is similar to head smell. Great bitter finish that lasts and lasts.
