4.33/5 rDev +21.3%
16oz. pint at Brixies in Brookfield Il
It pours a hair lighter than an amber with a nice large creamy head and medium lacing.
The nose has a firm distinct orange hop presence that is quaffable without being overbearing. It's just a nice bright fresh hop nose.
The taste once again has a huge fresh orange taste to it. It's smooth and refreshing. The bitterness is rather subdued but the hop taste is just great. There is a nice bready malt background as well. A great example of an low-end APA, probably the best I've had and by far the most approachable to non- craft beer drinkers.
The body is pretty full and perfect carbonation to where the flavor doesn't linger to much after the sip. This beer is so drinkable and maybe borders on the edge of poundable.
Overall a great entry level beer by Goose Island and I hope to see this is a ton of restaurants and bars in the coming months. It's a perfect entry level beer because it has a bright hop aroma and taste without an off-putting bitterness.

Had a pour at the Goose Island Brewpub in Wrigleyville.
First off, I feel it is necessary to state that I had the Green Line after a Bourbon County Stout and Nightstalker, so readers should know the Green Line hit my palate after some well known heavy hitters.
Appearance, It was an orange-gold with a finger's width fluffy white head.
Smell, Smells like a pale ale should, with slight citrus notes.
Taste, really a great tasting beer, good balance between hop and malts, although after my previous two beers I didn't feel much of a hop presence.
Mouthfeel, not very carbonated and smooth overall. Had me wishing it was summer.
Drinkability, this was the strong point of the beer in my opinion. Very drinkable, if I could obtain a keg of this beer I would snatch it up in a second!

3.9/5 rDev +9.2%
Serving glass: Poured from tap into large Imperial Pint-like glass.
Appearance: Light amber with decent white head.
Smell: Mostly citrus (orange and grapefruit) with light grainy malts.
Taste: The taste is also citrus dominated, with orange and grapefruit. Some toasted malt backbone, with a spicy, slightly bitter finish. May even be some tea-like characteristics.
Feel: Medium-light body that is quite smooth with moderately low carbonation. Dry finish.
Overall: Definitely an American Pale Ale, but there are some English Bitter elements as well. Crisp, smooth and refreshing.

3.38/5 rDev -5.3%
On tap at Citizens Bar, Chicago
A - Clear, honey colored ale with a small white head. Looks to be a bit watery
S - Light citrus with orange and lemon standing out. There is a slight straw as well
T - Citrua forward with slight orange and lemon peel hitting you initially. There is a bready malt in the middle that gives it a slight sweetness. The finish is straw and slightly bitter hops
MF - Medium body and carbonation that gives a fuller and smoother mouthfeel than is guess from the look of it.
D - Overall, a solid, easy drinking beer. It's not great or mind blowing but a solid option when out at a bar.
