Goose Island IPA

Goose Island Beer Co

USA

Beers like this make me wish Goose Island was readily available in Atlanta. They crank out an above average IPA like this one, plus a good Bohemian-style pilsner, a basic ale, plus all the higher-end ales and lagers they brew. I could have a fridge full of Goose Islands and have every possible mood covered whenever I want a beer. This isn't the best IPA I've had, but it delivers. The hops are definitely there, but of course it's nothing like the more extreme IPA's like Stone. But in all honesty, that could be a good thing. The tart grapefruit finish makes this a good summertime ale, at least here in Atlanta.
