750ml bottle, green wax, poured into a GI 25th Anniversary Half Pint glass.

The beer pours a nice copper color, fairly clear complexion with a finger or so of white, soapy head that has good retention and leaves behind a nice network of sticky lace. The aroma is of light hops, mild pine with soft citrus with a touch of fresh flowers that quickly transitions to smooth, rich bready malt. The flavors are nice, the hops are a bit more aggressive on the tongue, bitter pine with nice grapefruit and lemongrass before a rush of sweet malt counters the bitter hops. The balance is nice, and this is definitely more assertive than the typical hoppy beer than Goose Island brews, which I like. The body is nice, crisp carbonation that is prickly on the tongue that coats the mouth well and finishes with a lightly creamy touch while still being fairly dry and bitter.

Verdict: A nice Imperial Pale Ale from Goose Island. It's a bit of a departure from their usual English influence, but the balance is nice and the alcohol is well hidden. What's lacking is a bit of complexity and panache, but this is definitely an enjoyable beer.
