This is a nice session IPA. Pours a nice light amber color with a good two finger head that has decent retention. This beer has a nice mild to moderate level of hop bitterness with a very distinct hoppy aroma and hop flavor that make this a very pleasant beer to enjoy. Being a session IPA it is not going to blow you away, but it meets its objective as a sessionable beer very well.
Give this a try if you have the chance.

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.

---Guest review by my brother---
Appearance - poured into a nonic pint glass, the beer showed a light golden amber color and nice persistent head. Nice lacing while drinking.
Smell - Smells strongly of what I can only call 'weed smell.' Earthy smell with some grass and pine scents.
Taste - Starts with a wheat-like flavor that quickly changes to that 'weed hop' earthy taste finishing off pretty quickly with some flowery notes. Has a sort of 'echo' of the wheat flavor after the finish.
Mouthfeel - The beer is pretty light carbonated and medium-light bodied. Mouth feel is great, doesn't have that particular feeling hops can leave on your tongue that turns many off of IPAs.
Overall it's a very refreshing beer. Light and crisp this is a beer that could quell a summer thirst with a taste that doesn't bore after a bottle or two.

I'm always hesitant to try the Goose Island stuff brewed in Baldwinsville, NY/Fort Collins, CO. I saw this Endless IPA, and realized it was new to their lineup along with the Rambler red IPA. Appears a pale copper with a beige off white head, leaves behind evenly dispersed lacing. Aroma has some citrus notes, a bit of dankness, pale malt bready qualities and more pungent grapefruit peel. Flavors have a tart citric note, light airy malt backbone, ample sweetness actually quite refreshing and easy to drink. Clean hop bitterness, a bit funky, floral, citric I'm game for a few glasses of this. Mouthfeel is light bodied even flowing carbonation goes down great slightly slick hop oils. Amazing one of their lowest rated offerings, I find quite enjoyable.

Undated 12 oz bottle.
Clear amber body covered by a durable off-white head. Some nice lacing is left on the glass.
Aroma: markedly hoppy with notes of resin, grass, and herbs. Hop mix is not very appealing.
Flavor: given the aroma, surprisingly mild hop level (think pilsner) and bitterness (IBU = 35). Hop mix works much better upon tasting. Grassy aftertaste.
Feel: medium body and carbonation.
