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.

Pours deep coppery with orangeish hue topped by an inch of stable beige head weaving thin yet firm laces on the sides.

Fruity aroma of mango & passionfruit, some caramel sweetness, restrained onion (sulphur) notes and a spicy touch probably provided by the advertised rye.

No component is overdone when it comes to the flavor: spicy rye nicely mingles with the fruity hopage and sweet malt base; far from being overly bitter and lacking harsh woodsy character in the finish that ruins IPAs too often.

Creamy and kind of oily with soft carbonation.

2.8/5  rDev -26.1%

On tap in a 12oz glass at Studio 35 on 9/22/12

A) Hazy, sunset amber color with pineapple juice highlights at the base. Thin head with a smooth layer on top. Impressive, solid lace.

S) The aroma has a lot of orange and some soapy hops. Hints of pine. It is matched with toasty rye bread.

T) Ooh, this is chock full of aspirin bitterness which masks orange and pine hops. Toasted, dry rye with a decent bready finish.

M) Medium body with hop prickliness and zesty carbonation. It becomes a bit slick with warmth but finishes dry over time.

D) Not the best. The rye becomes more prominent over time, but on the whole it is dicey.
