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.

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2007 Draught at the brewpub, Wrigleyville location, 2007-09-29, 7-4-8-4-16=39
Light amber color. Hoppy aroma, fruity, very nice. Good malty flavor, with sticky sugars, good body, and a powerful hopping, aromatic and resiny, a bit fruity too. Very good, especially for being a low gravity one.

Bottle, 2005-11-05, 7-4-6-3-13=33
Golden to light amber color. Beautiful fruity hoppy aroma. Weaker body than expected, some sweetness, quite bitter and aromatic but not aggressive. Mild American IPA.

Leighton (19174) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2009
Ive been drinking some great IPAs recently and this offering from Goose Island stands of reasonably well. I had it tap at the Waterstone Grill on Stone St. in NYC. A nice light red coloring and a subtle, fine head. Mild aroma of citrus and pine from the hops. Taste reinforced the hop sensation with a slight bitterness and a smooth finish. Aftertaste seemed to be a little off but Ill bet it was the tap and not the beer per se. Overall a tasty beer and highly drinkable.

Koelschtrinker (17969) - Kln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 17, 2011
Sehr hopfiger Geruch, dazu etwas slich. Stark hopfiger Antrunk, untersttzt durch eine wrzig-se Note. Im Mittelteil lsst das Aroma keinesfalls nach, die Hopfigkeit ist auf konstant hohem Level, auch der se Ton bleibt bestehen. Die ausgeprgte Hopfigkeit zieht deutlich zu erkennen eine bittere Spur hinter sich her, die im Nachgeschmack, nach abklingen der Hopfigkeit, deutlich strker wird. Auch die Wrzigkeit wird kurzzeitig strker. Solch ein aromenstarkes Bier bei 5% - hat schon was! Test vom 11.6.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,12,11,11,8,12 - 11,50

harrisoni (17457) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2007 Bottle from Utobeer. Copper colour with thin white head. Nicely aromatic US hop aroma, with a cross between grapefruit and tea. Fine in mouth, bit lacking in structure and malt balance, but hey. Finish is unsurprisingly zingy and hoppy with grapefruit and more tea. I mean yeah, its nice. Difficult to get a character in a beer so richly hopped 3.6/5 Re-rate 11/07/07 Bottle at Brew Wharf, Borough. Lovely beer. Lovely grapefruit hop aroma and excellent bitterness on finish. Really impressed.
