This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Long days and warm nights awaken the city. The list of neighborhood festivals is endless. As is the great music that brings us together in parks and parking lots. We brewed our Session IPA to be easy drinking and endlessly refreshing, so you can enjoy every encore. Bright note of fresh oranges and other citrus fruit with a mild body that is crisp on the palate.

I am not nuts about this sub genre of AIPA - the session AIPA. Most of them taste a lot like this one, and this one is pretty much middle of that pack.

It looks great in the glass - yellow with some head and lace. The aroma is the typical hoppy affair, which goes right into the piney, dry, hops taste. That's pretty much all the taste does too. The finish is also typically crisp and clean.

These easy drinking AIPA's are getting a little boring. This was a really nice deal at $15 for 12 plus $5 back on a rebate. Gets it down to cheap beer territory.

A - orange color into a goblet glass.

S - fruity/citrusy

T - fruity/citrusy as opposed to hoppy.

M - eh.

O - a very mild IPA, not hoppy whatsoever. Would be a good introduction to someone wanting to try an IPA but is put off by excess hops. Unfortunately it fits the pattern of Goose Island beers being very average, not bad but not great either.

A - Has a solid inch of head that fizzes out a bit making for not much lace. Color is more of a pale ale than an IPA with yellow and mild orange tint.
S - Tried to really "dig into" this beer but I couldn't smell much. It seems they skipped most of the hops on this IPA. Mild sweet malt fumes but faint. Disapointing.
T - A very distinct hop profile like minty hops. Not very bitter or piney they kind of just fade into obscurity and leave a chalky taste on the mouth. Kind of sweet malts I guess but a very bland taste.
M - Light to medium even though their is not much flavor I could drink a six pack with ease.

Overall I have had a lot of session IPA's and this one has to be one of the most uninspired ones I have had to date. It's not even bitter enough to classify as a pale ale and its super watery. Granted I got this beer 2 months late but in no way hops should fade this much and that fast. Possibly the worst beer I ever had from goose island. I blame Anheuser Busch

The aroma has a light tangerine and candy sweetness and cantaloupe flavor.

The flavor has a malty grain quality with sweet sugar candy and some melon and white grape. There's a strange bitterness on the back.

The beer in the end is quite disappointing for an attempt at a session IPA.
