In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


Goose Island Beer Company Goose IPA

Aroma: “Very fruity and citrus forward. Lots of orange, some lemon, lychee, and honeydew melon, slight pine. Medium malt note that is hidden behind the hops.”

Flavor: “Sweet grainy malt, lychee, pineapple, orange, lemon. Fleeting but firm bitterness that dissipates quickly from the front of the tongue. The body is light, which allows for the hops to be showcased. The beer finishes with a grapefruit hops bitterness and a slight citrus sweetness. Slight cloying note as it starts to warm up. Drink this one cold.”

Overall: “Fruity hops are lively and playful, making for an interesting take on American IPA. A fun beer to drink. The flavors worked well together, and the beer was not overly bitter. An overall great hoppy beer with a touch of malt that is well balanced with the hops flavor and moderate bitterness.”
