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.

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.

Had this at the Blue dog and it was an excellent choice on my part.
Came in a stemed tulip with a firm moderate head. Orange amber in color with some haze.
Aroma was fresh citrusy hops.
In the taste everything worked well bold citrusy maybe even a bit dank hops. Sweet malts and sutle hints of rye which i didn't even notice until I was nearly finished.
Drank smooth with a dry semi bitter finish.
Very good I enjoyed it immensely.
