2019-04-07 Goose IPA from Goose Island Beer company
Beer illustration I had a look at the beer on display in our local supermarket and noticed Goose IPA from Goose Island Beer company and I got reminded of Goose Island, Oregon which is mentioned in the Wargames movie. So I bought a bottle of the beer and did some research when I got home.

And everything about that link turned out to be wrong.

The Goose Island Beer company has nothing to do with Oregon, they are from Chicago, Illinois.

And according to Anderson Island (Washington) - Wikipedia English the scene around entering "Goose Island, Oregon" in the movie WarGames was actually filmed on Anderson Island in the state of Washington. There is a small island named "Goose Island" in the state of Oregon, it's an island in the Columbia river. Goose island measures almost 1000 meters by 680 meters. Goose Island Oregon USA on google maps.

Having left me with nothing of the link(s) I suspected when I saw the bottle there is only one thing to do: try the beer.

I would describe the colour as amber / dark amber. The smell and taste have a strong hop influence. I personally like IPA beers, but this one is a bit too bitter for me.
