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

I wish I had the beer infront of me so I could give the full description, but I'll give you my first impression. The name "Hopped-up Goose Juice", when I read it out loud I had to try it. Hell of a name for a beer, I love saying it. I didn't examine the color of the beer as I did with the smell and taste. Smell was absolutely amazing, reminded me of some"stankey danke dank"(marijuana), smell was Subtle though, very sweet smell. The taste was great as well. I remember the taste being like having a mouthful of smoke after hitting a freshly packed bowl. Taste of it lasted through out and never lost its flavor. I suggest it to those who favor a more lighter tasting IPA. You can't go wrong with trying a mouthful of flavors, don't associate marijuana with it, it was just the first impression it had on me so get it, twist it and have a dab at it.

Medium pour yields a foamy, root beer float-like head. Orange and hazy. Tiny bubbles continuously flow from the bottom of the pint glass.

Fruity aroma of light citrus and berries.

Mild bitterness up front. Follows with a citrus taste unique to IPAs, a lemon-lime crispness.

Expected more noticeable carbonation based on the appearance. Fairly smooth.

Overall a pretty good beer. Refreshing and drinkable. Not particularly complex, but tasty.

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.

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.
