Oh they made a different pale ale? Prolly equal chance its English in style. Pours an amber color that is significantly darker than most pale ale SRM. 3/4" white head, good retention. Aroma has a little bit of citrus to it, would guess little if any dry hopping going on here. Still can't tell what country of origin this pale ale's style would be thus far.

Taste, a little more of the grapefruit like citrusness, pale malt body is heavier than most, this one ain't gonna finish dry nor sweet. Over 6% abv? I dunno what is going on here in this pale ale. Color like an amber, malt above pale, hops largely absent and seemingly just used for bittering.

Fucking label says American style, but I can't come to the same conclusion. This is like a British ipa. No off flavors, but some pretty predictable and mundane ones.

Pours a beautiful orangish-light amber color with plenty of frothy off white head that dissipates slowly. The smell is definitely a little hoppy, but pleasant. The initial taste is full of flavor, mildly hopped and very drinkable. Overall, I feel that this is a very solid, enjoyable brew that I hope I can find more of.

Good looking pour, copper color. Smells nice and hoppy, little malty, citrusy. Good white head. Lots of malt sweetness in the taste, good hop bite. Not a bad beer at all.

Picked up in early January at TW Arrowhead as part of the winter 12 pack for $15. Bottled on 10-19-15.

Beer poured copper with a nice white head that is leaving some lacing behind.

Nose is pretty non descript, some hints of citrus.

Taste initially well played as the malts showcased the citrus hops very nicely. Subsequent sips are leaving a residual bitterness which is not appreciated.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and smooth yet refreshing.

Overall this beer has some nice characteristics to it. Would drink again if available.

No smell and look is very dark. Taste is basically malty and not that great.

A pretty copper-colored beer. Medium-sized light tan head with a little lace.
Mostly a sweet malt aroma. Tiny bit of citrus.
Lots of caramel in the taste. Just a hint of grapefruit.
Medium-bodied. More malt forward than I expected.

A: Bright gold color with an airy head.
S: Very nice aroma! Light malts and a load of fruity, citrusy hops.
T: Well-balanced flavor--lot of hop taste up front and good bitterness, but it backs off after a moment, leaving some sweet malt to linger around. Finish isn't dry, as I expected.
M: Lighter body than one expects from a >6% beer. Quite drinkable.
O: Decent effort from Goose Island, one of their better beers in recent years.

Pours an earthy red out of the bottle. Very little head to speak of, and aromatically speaking, lots of pine and citrus. This is more malt-forward than I expected, with noticeable caramel sweetness, but not a bad pale

Came from from church and cracked the last of three I had. Enjoyed this one immensely and I think it's one I could drink again.
