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: JUN 10, 2009 Draft, at the brewery. Not a hopheads IPA, but a good one to suggest to friends. All the homebrewers gathered at the brewery break room agreed the color was "orange." A nice fizzy head helps spread the hop aroma. Yes, there is hop bitterness, but as Dick Solomon on "Third Rock" said, "Not in that fun, spanky way." You also get a balanced fruity taste that matches the maltiness nicely. Well done, and in stores at popular prices. Re-tasted, 2/6/04: Hmm... the hop component is getting stronger, if anything. Not "extreme" yet, but still good (and I ran my finger through a trash can of foam they were using for blow-off in this brews fermenter... mmm, bitter!

(12oz bottle) AROMA: raw malt/grain, yeast, cheese, tiny bit floral/detergent. APPEARANCE: clear, medium orange-yellow, ok head, some creaminess. TASTE: ale, hops, sweet roasted corn, toffee, black tea with milk. Solid malt for an IPA. PALATE: not too heavy, refreshing, moderate bitterness. OVERALL: unique IPA in that it has more creamy/toasty malt that provide more warmth and not overly hopped. Could be a daily IPA.

oobawa (802) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 21, 2017
Malt-heavy, full of caramel and biscuit with a semisweet middle, traces of orange-citric hops with a dry floral fade. Weird dirty metallic flavor works its way into the finish; not bad, just a strange addition. Expected more from Goose IPA, but Im not sure why.

MrW (553) - Mechelen, BELGIUM - JAN 17, 2017
On tap. Fruity hops aroma, grapefruit, citrus lime. Clear gold blond with a fading head. Yet a small layer lasted. Malts, grapefruit, ananas in the taste. Dry long finish, not a lot of carbo.

Bottle. Pours pale amber with a medium white foam. Scent is medium musky IPA properties. Taste is consistent IPA with sort of dirty water and weird burned caramel flavors. Finish is consistent. Quite good.

dogbomb (1162) - ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2017
Bottle. Pours a decent amber with a fluffy white head. Nose is incredibly hoppy, with grapefruit, lemon, and perhaps a little toffee. Taste is really nice, very hoppy as to be expected, but theres a definite toffee note in there tempering everything down. A good mix of sweet and bitter. A nice dryness cutting through everything. I like this one.

Acheter chez Vanuxeem Ploegstreert . Bouteille de 35,5cl. couleur : Dore , translucide ! belle couleur . Mousse bien abondante mais qui redescend assez vite pour finir sur un petit col de mousse . Au nez : cest agrums , le citron est bien prsent , ainsi que le houblon ! En bouche : cest intressant. les notes dagrumes tel que le citron ( citron vert et jaunes ) ainsi que le pamplemousse sont intensement presente . lamertume est toute en rondeur prsente du dbut a la fin . une fin en bouche plutot sche mais pas dsagreable ! sensation dsaltrante trs bien!

Mme si je ne suis pas un spcialiste, je trouve que cette bire IPA en bouteille 355ml est une trs bonne IPA : bien quilibre, bien houblonne (--> fruits jaunes dont pamplemousse, pices, pin), bien longue. Very good, Mr Citra !

PunkBunny (39) - Benoni, SOUTH AFRICA - DEC 31, 2016
Pours golden clear. Low carbonation and minimal head retention. Slight fruit citrus smell. Grapefruit taste, dry malt taste. Medium bitterness. Overall: very average IPA. Needs more hop aroma, carbonation and complexity.

colui72 (747) - HONG KONG - DEC 31, 2016
Pours clear deep golden, with a small white head, good lacing. Aroma is light lager malts, with floral and citrus notes. Taste is malty as aroma, with bitter hops, gummy candy, citrus. Taste closer to a lager than to an IPA. Disappointing.
