This session beer pours to a light golden color with a body that is completely see- through and perfectly clear. The nose on this beer combines floral notes, grapefruit, pine, and light spice and is certainly appealing. The head of foam looks nice and leaves some lacing as you consume.

With the taste, this Goose Island beer emphasizes the hops, but not by much. The flavors of grapefruit, orange, tangerine, and other citrus are obvious, but there are other flavor contributors like caramel malt and light pale malt. The finish of the ale gives way to the flavor of tropical fruit and the light to medium body makes it easy- drinking and pleasant.

Goose Island Endless IPA is the latest session beer offering from a larger, established craft brewery and it does have some good things going for it. I like the emphasis on fruity/floral hops, even if they are more subdued, and I like the beer’s refreshing characteristics. You don’t usually associate an IPA with refreshing qualities, but this beer certainly has them.

Session beers seem to be trending at the moment and Goose Island Endless IPA is a nice, solid entry in this growing field. It might be pushing it to call this a session beer, but this is certainly a more agreeable version of an IPA that is lower in alcohol and bitterness than the standard IPA and broader in its appeal.

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.
