Maybe I'm just not fancy enough.
I bought two 12-packs at a local gas station because they were on sale for $5. Worst $5 I ever spent.
My wife and I LOVE our beer. My wife is British and often says American beer seems watered down to her. She said that Goose Island India Ale taste like skunk butt, and I have to agree.
How anyone is supposed to sit back and relax with a drink that sends you into involuntary convulsions is beyond me.
The worst part is have another 20 to drink.
This drink is best enjoyed when you're already three sheets in the wind on something else and just don't care anymore. It's also great for guest you don't like.

A - Golden orange with a soapy decent sized head that leftsome surprisingly nice broad lace.
S - Hmm, lot of hops and pine notes in here, was hoping for some more complexity here as the bartender said this is a very good ipa. All I'm getting is mostly pine, little citrus.
T - Tastes like I'm chewing on a pine tree. This is quite horrible. All I can taste is pine, pine, and well, more pine.
M - Nice carbonation and crisp.
D - I can't drink it because it tastes like I got lost in the forest and had to chew on pine needles to survive. Maybe I just had a bad bottle, but this seemed almost like making an IPA to make one and not really knowing exactly what goes into it.

Looks nice, your standard IPA appearance. Smells hoppy and spicy. Taste is hoppy yet watery and there is (I swear) an old greasy sweat sock taste lingering in the back. There seems to be some substance/texture missing from this too, on further reflection, it's really watery. This is the worst tasting IPA I've had.

April 2010 bottle, drank 2/22/11.
A - Opaque apple cider. Low head. Little lace.
S - Mellow alcohol, light honey. Some orangey citrus.
T - Might have caught this bottle past its prime. Light breadyness. Some orange and orange pith. Somewhat unfinished - almost an unrefined homebrewed character. Some light booze on the backend. Slightly yeasty.
M - Light, somewhat watery body. Low carbonation.
D - Just ok flavor and body.
