Goose Endless IPA – Goose Island Beer Company

From Goose Island Beer Company out of Chicago Illinois comes their “Goose Endless IPA” a Session IPA is the latest seasonal to reach Canada.  The beer pours a golden colour with a white head.  The aroma consists of grassy hops, hay, grain, grapefruit and citrus.  The flavour is of biscuit malts, grain, grapefruit, orange, herbal, grassy and mildly bitter hops.  the alcohol content comes in at 5% with an IBU of 35.  While not a complex beer it is an enjoyable summer ale although probably closer to a golden ale than an ISA with a low bitterness.

Commercial Description:  Long days and warm nights awaken the city. The list of neighborhood festivals is endless. As is the great music that brings us together in parks and parking lots. We brewed our Session IPA to be easy drinking and endlessly refreshing, so you can enjoy every encore. Bright note of fresh oranges and other citrus fruit with a mild body that is crisp on the palate.

Food paring as per brewery:  Room temperature cows milk cheese, grilled chicken Caesar salad, seared port chop with orange marmalade sauce, oven-roasted white fish, creamy panna cotta with tangerine sauce.

    They sure did. It’s pretty darn epic. Now if only public consumption of liquor was legal here. This would be amazing for picnics.
