I guess that is the point with it being 4.1%, but I didn’t enjoy it as much as the Goose Island IPA. It was reasonably nice enough, but nothing to get excited about. It has that IPA taste without being too fruity or anything else. You get the traditional ale taste without strong notes of anything else. I was never really into the whole ale thing, and just drank the usual lager you’d find in most bars or shops. But then I kind of wanted to experiment a bit. The phrase IPA stands for India Pale Ale, and sits within the pale ale category (beer brewed with mostly pale malts).

Paying tribute to its Chicago roots, Goose Island’s Midway IPA is sessionable, refreshing and easy drinking. This would make for a great Craft Beer Gift for all Beer lovers Our famous beer began with a trip across Europe, when Goose Island founder (and unabashed beer lover) John Hall took a tour across the continent. Pint by pint, he savored the styles and selections of brews in every region, and thought to himself, “America deserves some damn fine beer like this, too.”The two brews maintained berths in the top three following significant investment in from Camden Town Brewery owners Budweiser Brewing Group. With a lower ABV at 4.1%, balanced IBU’s, and a tropical fruit aroma, make Midway your new go-to, have more than one, easy drinking India Pale Ale (IPA) Midway is 4.1% alcohol in strength, what they call a session IPA. This is the one you’re supposed to choose if you want to drink more than a few, aka a session.

I had the first one and thought it was pretty nice, but when I went for another I found it quite weak. This is probably due to the fact that the first one I drank was after another beer, whereas when I tried it for the 2nd time it was my first drink.

It tastes really nice. It’s very smooth and easy to drink, and you can forget that this is almost 6% in a can. You’d not want to drink too many of these, but I think that it would be pretty easy to. Floral and citrus aromas lead to a slightly sweet caramel malt character, plenty of citrus from the generous use of Amarillo hops and a well balanced bitterness For the purposes of this test, we’ve tried beers ranging from as low as 0.3% ABV (which is classed as non-alcoholic), through to 5% (which is slightly pushing the boundaries of what a session IPA truly is, but is still pretty light in the grand scheme of things). What does session IPA taste like? It’s also very flattering that interest in American craft beer is spreading around the world, and thrilling for Goose Island to be a part of the movement. Everyone at the Goose Island Beer Company is looking forward to making some new friends Down Under.” To celebrate the landing, Goose Island will be putting on a ‘Hoppy Hour’ at select venues in Melbourne and Sydney where the Midway IPA will be available courtesy of Goose from 6pm until the kegs run out.

The latest list also sees two new brews break into the top ten with Goose Island Midway IPA and Maltsmiths American Style IPA landing in eighth and ninth respectively, while Greene King’s East Coast IPA is the biggest loser dropping three positions. Ken Stout, the President & General Manager of Goose Island, said they are very proud and excited to introduce Goose Island to the great beer lovers of Australia. Lovers of American craft beer can rejoice because Goose Island has landed on our shores and will be available in select venues as of Friday 21 April. The pioneering Chicago brewery is bringing its expertise and a range of its brands to Australia, with the local Aussie brewers working in close partnership with Chicago Goose Island brewers to bring the internationally renowned Goose IPA to Aussies. The six-time Great American Beer Festival medal winning beer will be arriving in the coming months.

Light, crisp and punchy, a session IPA tends to express tropical holiday-esque aromas and a fruity, hoppy flavour. You can see why it’s our drink of choice for the summer months, but it's also a great beer for parties. What food goes well with IPA beer? However, a 1,400% increase in online sales​at craft brewer Jubel put the independent beer maker in a strong position to support its on-trade partners once pubs reopen, according to co-founder Jesse Wilson. Goose Island will launch in Australia with its newest release the Midway Session IPA, a 4.1% sessionable IPA. Goose Island IPA is a 5.9% alcohol Indian Pale Ale. It was really easy to pour, and has a nice colour. Carlton & United Breweries (CUB) will be handling the distribution of Goose Island in Australia, but the local brewing of the beer will be overseen by the Chicago team to “ensure that it meets the high standard that the Goose team have set for themselves”.

It’s frothy, and it’s one you really have to pour slower unless you want a lot of foam at the top. First he made some stellar beer. Then he invited his consumers in to watch his process at the brewery, bringing them behind the scenes every step of the way. The result was a new fascination with craft brewing, and beer that not only catered to people’s tastes, but challenged them as well.Jankoski continued: “Brewing locally gives a great freshness advantage, and with our ability to be directly and constantly involved with the brewing process we see this as the most ideal way to bring our beer to Australia. We have been involved every step of the way, giving direction on the brewing process and visiting the brewery to personally taste the beer for every trial.” Designed for an all-day “session”, this class of beer won’t leave you with the same level of hangover as drinking something a whole lot stronger, leaving you clear headed enough for that early morning training session (or that’s the idea anyway). And because low-alcohol beer tends to have fewer calories, it can also help to reduce your calorie intake. The term “session” refers to beers that have all the taste of a regular IPA, but with a lower ABV of around 3-5%, which make them suited to long hot summer afternoons. Craft brewing wasn’t widely known at the time, but upon return from his European sojourn, John set out to change all that. He settled down in his hometown of Chicago—a city perfect for craft beer, with rapidly evolving tastes and the largest system of fresh water on the planet. And then he got to brewing.
