4.16/5  rDev +18.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tall pint glass. Bottled on date of March 14, 2014.

Appearance: Pours a bright and clear golden orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. Big three finger white head that slowly fades into a thin creamy layer. Lots of lacing.

Smell: A ripe, juicy, and piney hop forward aroma with big hints of citrus and pine. Upfront earthy and herbal hops with hints of pine resin and grass. Citrus hop hints of orange, grapefruit, and lemon. Soft malt background with hints of grains, cracker, wheat, and yeast. Very hop forward and piney. Pretty solid scent.

Taste: Like it smells, a piney, ripe, and juicy hop dominated taste with big notes of pine, grass, and orange. Big taste of earthy and herbal hops with upfront notes of pine resin and wet grass. Citrus hop presence with some notes of orange, lemon, and grapefruit. Backing presence of soft pale malt with notes of cracker, grains, wheat, and yeast. Very forward with the hops. Nicely drying. A pretty solid taste.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Juicy, drying, and somewhat oily. Pretty smooth.

Overall: A pretty solid session IPA. Good piney and grassy notes with a smooth and clean body.

look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 2.75

Pours a clear golden yellow color, not much head at all nor lacing on the glass, no cap on top.

Smell has a fairly strong sweet malt presence, hops are quite mute to the nose, almost has a corn aroma.

Taste is primarily the sweet malt with a subtle hop finish, body is on the thin side but carbonation is nice and high that lends a crispness to the finish.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

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.
