The Cross of Gold was good...but I agree with others....this is more of a blonde ale than an English IPA...the Beer poured a hazy yellow with white head that left a spotty lace. The scent was sligth bitter hops with a subtle waith of citrus. The taste was a very good balanced beer that did not overwhelm....sligth citrus flare helped to give the beer character. The mouthfeel was medium to light in body with decent carbonation. Overall it was ok...probably would not go seekign it out....but glad I tried it.

On tap at Gino's East... in Chi town!

Pours a nice golden color, with a thin head. Has a hint of Cascade hops on the nose... rather light but that's OK with this style. Good carbonation. The mouthfeel is just right for a golden ale.

However, this has a vegetal quality that doesn't quite sit right with me. t has a dull bitter edge to it. I'll pass on the next round.
