Bottled April 27, 2014

Pours a nice creamy fizzy 1 finger head that fades semi slowly, nice lacing, mostly clear golden honey pilsner colored, many streaming bubbles.

Nose brings big musty resinous hops, grassy wet hop like aroma with hop oils and slightly piney resin, a nice dank hop with floral mild grassy spicy hops, and touch of a passion fruit guava like tropical fruit, faint malts underneath.

Trade brings more dank resinous hops, very musty fresh wet hop like, piney and floral, grassy and just a touch spicy. In the background the hops bring mild tropical notes again, the musty passion fruit guava like fruits, and a touch of a general fruity bubblegum. Mild sweet toasted malt underneath. Finish is dry and fairly bitter, nice long lingering bitterness with more dank spicy piney resinous hop flavours and mild hop oils lingering.

Mouth is med bod, nice fluffy effervescent carb.

Overall pretty nice. Nice hop profile, enough malt to back up the hops without getting in the way. definitely tasty and sessionable.

This beer is single hopped with Amarillo, and the grain bill is very simple (2-row, Cara 60L, Carapils). It has decent mouthfeel, holds a good head (thanks carapils), and there's nothing bad about it. I would recommend it if only as a showcase of Amarillo hops. Very drinkable (it's a session after all).

Goose Island will never be the Goose Island of old. I tried this thinking... hey... lets pretend this is still made in Chicago. It isn't. Moreover... this beer isn't something the old Goose Island would put out.
A: Straw clear golden like BMC. Big head that Dissipates like BMC.

S: Citra, Light Malts.

T: Unfortunately bland. Obviously it is an "ending IPA." No word on how "Endless IPA" is created by adding Citra and Cascade. (Or so my tastebuds and sniffer detect.)

M: Light.

O: Find something else. This is not what Goose Island is all about. I rarely leave negative posts... but this one just pisses me off.

the only thing really memorable other than this is a fairly accessible session PA is the wallop of sesame out of the gate. If you don't enjoy toasted/sesame then this would not be a session ale for you, as for me, it works but not in the true sense of an "endless IPA".

Light yellow color with a head that trails easily. The smell was full of citrus and floral notes from the hops and made me excited to try. The taste was my favorite part by far because I got all those great hop notes, but underneath all the bitterness from the hops was a toasted caramel flavor that kept the beer balanced and very delicious. Would highly recommend.
