4.18/5  rDev +22.9%

Served in a Flying Goose standard pint glass.
I'm noticing a few very old reviews and wondering if something has drastically changed in the recipe or a different, much more skilled brewer is in charge, because this IPA is truly a very good representation of the style (if a bit hoppier than the English IPA)
It pours a cloudy copper color with and smallish, fast-fading off-white head. Trails of patchy and webby lacing line the glass.
Smells of resinous hops blasts out and fills the air surrounding, followed by a slightly limey smell, followed by grain, hay and a whiff of alcohol. In this regard, an English IPA comes to mind.
The flavors are hop forward, then balance out fairly evenly between bitter and malty. The citrusy and fruity bitterness is mellowed out by the full and rich malts. An edgy resinous hop bite is soon balanced by a buttery biscuit taste. Again, English IPA.
A fumy alcoholic kick is noticed throughout, but never too potent.
The first few gulps are a bit raspy and harsh (not altogether an unpleasant experience), but thereafter the body is fluid and quite gulpable.
I purchased 2 growlers for family and friends to sample (only 1 growler made it for the tasting)

Hazed dusty golden hue, decent head retention. Tart hop and musty buttery grain aroma. Oxidized hops? These hops do not taste fresh nor does any part of this beer, you start to wonder why so many people were ordering Bud.

This is not even close to any IPA that I have had, weak in all aspects ... hops, malt, body and alcohol.

3.38/5  rDev -0.6%

Found this place quite by accident on the way home from Montreal. After dinner grabbed a pint glass and a growler of their IPA.

Looked nice when I poured it into a Harpoon glass designed for IPA's. Head looked very nice, thick and frothy.

Smells slightly of flowers and hops. Not a strong aroma, but it does entice me to take a sip.

Tastes like an IPA, not much to say there. I'm not surprised to find the hops are very light as the smell alluded to it.

Feels smooth and leaves my mouth sticky after the beer goes down.

I'm probably going to make it through the whole growler tonight, goes down very easily. There are certainly better IPA's out there, but this one's not too bad.

A beer is a descent amber color. Not much head on this beer. Smell has a faint hint of hops. The taste is ok but nothing special. There is a slight hint of hops in there but you have to concentrate. An OK beer but there are better ones on tap at the brewpub.

3.75/5  rDev +10.3%

From a 32 oz growler obtained from the brewpub. Sampled on August 20, 2014.

It pours a slightly cloudy pale yellow to medium amber with a lasting off-white head.

The aroma has nice sensations of breaded malts, toffee, caramel, a touch of fruit, and a more earth hop character.

Medium body and smooth.

The taste also brings forth the toasted malts and then the aggressive hope bitterness roars in from the backside and takes everything over leaving a dry and lingering finish. This is one of the better offerings from Flying Goose, which is now celebrating more than 20 years in business.

3.88/5  rDev +14.1%

Poured on-tap and served in a tumbler pint, the beer is a slightly hazed, orange-copper coloring with a thin, white, clingy, filmy surface coating of head. Aromas of tangerine, caramel, and a light hopping. Flavors are rich, with a balanced caramel and peppery hopping profile. Citrus highlights throughout. Definitely a solid representation of the English IPA style. The aftertaste is resiny and peppered, but smooth overall. Smooth, clean finish. Very solid.

3.9/5  rDev +14.7%

Pours a nice amber hue with a lack of a head.

Aroma is full of malt sweetness with a light amount of hop bitterness.

Biscuit malt shows upfront with citrusy hops that leave a robust bitterness.

Mouthfeel is full of biscuit malt and lingering bitterness.

A nicely balanced IPA. Solid and worth a try.
