Another American interpretation of an English-style beer and this time it's Chicago's Goose Island IPA. Sparkling clear and copper in colour, it almost looks like a lager but its pleasant hop flavours are clearly reminiscent of an elegant English-style IPA. With subtle citrus hops, biscuity malts, a smooth, light body and the perfect balance of sweet and bitter, the Goose Island IPA is one you'll happily enjoy no matter the occasion.

Brewery Info

Great breweries start with a clear vision. Founder John Hall’s was to bring the best of European beer styles to Chicago. Since its modest beginnings in a brewpub in 1988, Goose Island went on to make some of America’s greatest beer, including Goose IPA that won medals not just once, but six times at the Great American Beer Festival.

One of the better what you might call 'supermarket' beers, probably Goose's most recognisable ale. Strong but very drinkable, it's hoppy and fruity, best poured straight from the fridge.
A refreshing US IPA

Reasonably typical but still nice and refreshing. I typically don't like fruity overtones in beer but it works quite well here in combination with a nice hoppy taste.

If you want an East Coast USA IPA, you may be able to find better, but not very often, and never as easily

A lovely smooth IPA. Refreshing and soft.
IPA is usual choice but this one is excellent.
