Notes/Commercial Description:
American hops dominate this Rye I.P.A, creating an assertive citrus and passion fruit character. An old-world flavor from rye malt adds the perfect compliment to Goose Juice’s big, satisfying hop flavor and aroma. Originally home-brewed by our beloved brewer Goose, its wonderful combination of flavors inspired us to brew this specialty I.P.A.

60 IBU

Body medium orange, hazy
Flavor begins lightly sweet, with the rye slightly overbalancing the hops (60 IBU). Rye spiceyness is evident throughout. No alcohol, no diacetyl tasted. Ends slightly sweet with no chalky astringency.
Palate medium, slightly oily, carbonation lively.

Overall, a nice interpretation of a hoppy rye ale, but not worth the 10 bucks.

A: dark thickly clouded amber ale with a solid few fingers of foam above

S: muted citrus amid the dry rye spice; some suggestions of dank herb

T: rustic and rugged rye, edged with spice, matched to the dark pith of a pale citrus fruit; presents some earthy and muted "brown" flavors, with a watery brown sugar sweetness

M: medium-light body, some tickle of spice and carbonation, mellow bitterness

O: nothing I'm particularly fond of, nothing that I didn't like. a decent entry into the field. Perhaps fans of rye ales and IPAs, and the mellower, darker IPAs would like this more than me.

Was expecting a over-the-top hop blast given the name. But turns out to be a very well-balanced IPA. Tons of sweet malt to go with piney/citrus hop flavor and aroma. Didn't get the anticipated spice from the rye though. Overall a very nice IPA. Would drink again and recommend highly. If you are expecting tons of hop bitterness you will be disappointed.
