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 lover’s 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 you’ll remember.

Pours a clear light golden color with a 1 finger white head with good retention. Pretty strong pine and citrus hop aroma. Tastes of floral piney hops with grapefruit/citrus notes. Mouth feel has a light to medium body with fairly heavy carbonation. Overall a solid IPA but nothing special.

UPDATED: DEC 11, 2017 There are heaps of hops that give off a strong flavor of spearmint with grapefruit, but also a slightly unpleasant dust flavor. The palate is a little watery but the aftertaste is the best of the flavours so I'm happy.

Nice IPA. Deep amber pour from the bottle. First beer of the session. Sweet syrupy malt and hops flavours. Goes down easily.

geolgau (514) - Cluj-Napoca, ROMANIA - DEC 6, 2017
Aroma is mildly hoppy and mildly malty. There's a slight touch of oatmeal in there. Mostly grassy hops. Medium bitterness, watery taste, grassy dry finish. Some fruitiness, but not potent at all. Too generic.

UPDATED: DEC 1, 2017 330 ml bottle. Middle of the road ipa. Quite smooth and creamy mouthfeel with restrained hops makes for a pleasant enough beer that I’d be happy enough to revisit if it was discounted.

CurlyJoe (351) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 1, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2017 Not too much bitterness, sticky sweet hops. Very smooth, almost too smooth. Creamy. Very solid, straight forward IPA.

Big, big beer. One swig will do you in terms of fullness. Very hoppy on the tongue but subdued on the nose. Not as citrusy as it claims to be, but enough to pass. The finish is bold, but at the same time smooth. Not jarring. Sight hints of malt at the end. Overall above average. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

First experience with Goose Island. Tend to avoid sell-out breweries but tried it tonight nonetheless. Glad I did. Very nice brew. Smooth, light, crisp. Has a lemon-lime thing going on like old fashioned 7-Up. Not a hop bomb by any means but a very well made ale. Still hate the InBev part and probably won’t buy again because of that but will enjoy the other 5 of these.
