Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a deep bronze color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, a bit on the malty side. Taste is malts up front, some light hops, drinks almost more like an English pale ale. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall, not a bad beer per se, but one was enough for me.

I hope this isn't a one and done with Goose Island. A very pleasant beer. Nice orange/reddish hue with a good amount of head. The smell was very grassy with hints of citrus. The taste was a bit more subdued with the hops, but still had a crisp finish that I really enjoyed. The mouthfeel was light and fizzy and very refreshing. Hope to try this one again soon if possible.

Perhaps my taste-buds don't appreciate pale ales and IPAs properly, but I have yet to find one of either category that I like. They taste like soapy water mixed with intolerably bitter hops, in my opinion. Could barely finish Goose Island's Ten Hills Pale Ale, with every sip becoming harsher and harsher in terms of flavoring. Perhaps I'm just not one for these kinds of beers, however, I can at least appreciate that more time, effort, and labor goes into these than your average macrobrew. As usual, I'm stuck at the corner of admiration and recognition rather than actual appreciation.
