My first and favorite IPA, and one of my top 3 beers. I realize it's a little hyperbolic to realistically give a perfect 5, but I simply looove this one and it never lets me down.

A - rich amber color, thick sticky head that leaves all kinds of lacing down the glass or bottle as you drink

S - instant grassy hop nose, does not mute out the smell of the malt, but lets its presence be known. tiny hints of citrus of all sorts

T - fresh hop start followed by a very good bite, finishes with a bold malt taste with citrusy hop oil spice overlaying.

M - nicely medium bodied, clings to everything it touches and keeps the flavors sticking around for a while

D - I can drink this pretty much anytime I want a beer. have not had a food yet I don't enjoy it with (cheap, very spicy tacos seem to pair the best). undying love and loyalty to this, as well as Goose Island's Honker's Ale. top notch

Bright unfiltered golden golor with a full ivory head that leaves sporadic lace. Strong hoppy citrusy, lemony, and grapefruity aroma and taste. Great balance but definitely hoppy without being really bitter. Medium bodied and smooth !

Great example of an American IPA !

Per the book Best American Beers: 65 IBU's.

A- Is a honey brown color, with a thick white foam, very attractive, and leaves a white lace around the glass with each sip, which we all know is a good sign.

S- Full of hops and citrus, very good fragrance.

T- Is beyond amazing, probably my favorite IPA, it has the bitter hops and citrus taste which I have grown to love over the years.

MF- The way it sets on the taste buds with a citrus blend that complements the huge hop flavor leaves a great after taste.

D- I could drink this beer all the time, it is my favorite IPA, and will probably be in till I find an IPA that surpasses the Goose Island IPA, so thanks to my Chi town fellows that brew such a better wonderful IPA!
