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.

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.
