I guess this is a little bit less English IPA compared to their older recipe one. Pours golden, good clarity, soft 3/4" white head. Aroma is mild hops. Grassy. Maybe no dry hopping whatsoever.

Taste, light bodied affair despite heavier than average malt body, the high carbonation and hop choice seems to contribute to the levity relative to the malt usage and quantity. Bitterness is in the 50ibu range, the bitterness lacks flavor for the most part so it gets the grapefruit designation. Toasted pale and crystal malt keep this one chugging along. Its a major brewery's attempt at making inroads on the pale ale game, something they've never impacted market share with in any meaningful way. So this is the watered down, non offensive gateway pale ale from Budweiser essentially. No off flavors. Just mundane stuff, which is ok sometimes.

Not a bad beer, however I'm quite disappointed. Minimal hop characteristics and too heavy on the malts for a pale ale in my opinion. Much better versions of the style available at the same price point. Unlikely to revisit.

This is okay but not Goose Island Beer Company's best effort whatsoever. Most certainly not worth the top shelf price.

A: Toasty golden color.
S: Malty: Sweet, toasty, caramel and fruity.
T: Mainly caramel, with a lightly bitter aftertaste
M: Medium carbonated, smooth pale ale.
O: Just a good beer.... no more!. Refreshing beer, maybe to be considered during a more than one beer event.
