Goose Honkers Ale

2.5

Brewery: Goose Island Beer Company (Chicago, Illinois) 

Type:  Session IPA

ABV: 4.3%

IBU: 30

Thoughts:  The beer seems a bit confused to me.  It’s a red ale with literally tons of carbonation.  It looks like an 8th grade science project.  At first it’s a mix of soap and very minor hops.  And then it relaxes (as much as the bubbles will allow) into a malty red ale typical-ness.  This beer is OK but I’ve had way better in this class.  It’s growing on me as I am drinking it and it mellows slightly but still just ‘pretty good’.
