Notes/Commercial Description:
Our 2nd Anniversary release is an Double IPA heavily hopped with over 4 lbs/bbl of Simcoe, Magnum, Nugget and Ahtanum. This is a big, malty ale with delicate hop and rich malt aroma, complex hop flavor and sustained smooth hop bitterness. Hops are added from beginning to end during the brewing process and, like most (512) ales, this one is made using over 80% USDA certified organic ingredients. Not to be missed.

Served in a tumbler.

Man, Goose Island has me programmed or somethin', 'cause I kept referring to this as "312 DIPA" all night... Anyway, this stuff pours a mostly clear sunset amber topped by a finger or so of off-white foam. The nose comprises bright melon, grapefruit zest, sweet caramel, light honey, and a twinge of pine resin. The taste brings in more of the same, with some fruit rinds tossed in, the pine taking on a more needle-y character, and the caramel drying out a bit, though still retaining its decent amount of sweetness. A vein of alcohol is perceptible, but it maintains its furtive personality. The body is a light-leaning medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying-ish finish. Overall, a solid DIPA, one that tries to achieve a healthy balance in there, while still hitting you with plenty of hops. Not bad.

Solid brew from my hometown.

Appearance was fine, although I'm not terribly particular about the coloration as long as an IPA doesn't start looking like a porter. It poured foamy but settled quickly.

Smell was not particularly bold. It didn't make me say "wow that's a double IPA." Hops were apparent and slightly citrus.

Taste seemed to almost deteriorate. It went from pleasantly crisp to lacking something. I almost feel that this is a Double at 9% that tastes like a single at 7%. It tastes like a very good IPA, but not as hoppy as something like Myrcenary.

Mouthfeel is good. Overall this is a beer that I would love to order again in a pint.
