India Pale Ale (Goose Island)

Pours a delicate golden colour. The aroma is like an explosion, sweet citrus followed by a very powerful dry hop smell.

The taste is sweet to start, like a lemon sorbet with very limited maltiness. The middle is rather thin, lacking either a yeasty taste or a biscuity crunch. What comes along for the finish is amazing, powerful dry raw hops, eclectic bittering and a lingering notes of citrus and spice, like a lemon ginger tea.

8/10 A fantastic US IPA, one to turn to at any time. The ultimate "go to" US IPA.
