Had a few of these on tap at Fonte Coffee/Wine Bar (great happy hour btw).
A- Pours a fairly dark reddish amber - quite dark for the style. Decent head, although can never be sure on tap how it was poured. Great lacing - lots of superior lacing that really just stuck to the glass.
S - Citrus and pine hops are right at the forefront. Quite strong. Sweet malt is there as well. Quite nice.
T - More herbal and bitter compared to so many citrusy DIPA's I have been having lately. Actually, was listed as just an IPA, so not sure if it is a true 'double' although I guess the ABV supports it. Hale's definitely always leans towards the piney & herbal and bitter over citrus, and this is no different, but it is balanced nicely with a fair amount of malt. Although I wouldn't classify it amongst the flavor leaders for west coast IPAs I still found it quite enjoyable and would order again.
M - Medium bodied and a little oily. Nice overall and an improvement over the regular Mongoose which I am not a huge fan of.
D - Decent for the ABV, I had two pints with light food and feel nicely buzzed. Not exactly sessionable, but it is a pretty respectable IPA especially if you prefer them on the bitter side.

This has to be one of the best, if not the best IPA's I have ever had!! It is delicately bitter yet well balanced, aromatics smell like hibiscus, honeysuckle, and earthy tones. The ingredients are high in quality and you can definetely taste the purity and craftsmanship that goes into this bottle of supergoose. A great thing about the company is that you can visit the brewery/pub and see the beer made before your eyes and this is where you will really appreciate the dedication that goes into making such a fine quality beer. I will definetely recomend this beer and others made from Hales Ales to friends and customers, this company has hit the nail right on the head with their brews. If you are considering trying this beer you should definetely try it because you will not be dissapointed.

Unexpected Pleasure. Another fine Seattle IPA. From the 1st taste this one stands out a nice lingering grapefruity aftertaste but it is not overkill. This is just a sound, peaceful brew to enjoy by youself. Just enjoy the beer and food later. Take a bottle down to Puget Sound and enjoy the view.
