Goose Island IPA

I was really excited about this beer; having sampled the superb Sierra Nevada recently, I was keen to further explore the world of American Craft Beers. This particular one's from Chicago, which may be a world capital of beer. Or may not be. I have no idea. 

It's an IPA, and is much more pale than the Adnams from earlier in the evening. On opening there's a really lovely hoppy smell, and the first swig was great - bursting with flavour. 

But it doesn't last; perhaps I hadn't chilled it enough, but it goes flat quickly and the hoppiness turns into maltiness. I wanted to enjoy this, and to be fair it's better than 80% of beers, but it wanted it to be good.
