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 Juiceā€™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.

I liked this one. Poured a hazy orange color into a beer mug. Medium cream colored head with good retention and some lacing. Smell is tropical fruit citrus hops and rye sourness.. Not overpowering, but still pretty good.

Tastes good. The citrus hops and rye combination is a winner. There is enough caramel malt to provide some balance but this is still a predominantly a hoppy beer.

Mouthfeel is rich and crisp. Overall a good Rye IPA.

This is a pretty hearty beer that stays rustic and earthy. The flavor profile doesn't really change courses much, but what is there is pretty well done. I do have to say that if this is a rye beer that it's much more earthy than I usually find rye beers. A pretty nice beer though. A good winter IPA for sure.

(Served in a tulip glass)

A- This beer pours a deep slightly dense caramel body with a sticky light beige head that fades to a thin film.

S- The green ripe fruit aroma to the hops takes on a slight ether quality that grows in the finish.

T- The green tropical fruit and Christmas tree pine resin of hops is followed by a tart grapefruit pith hop note and some dry toasted malt flavor for support. There is a mellow bitterness to the more full hop pungency that lingers.

M- This beer has a medium mouthfeel and a gentle fizz with no alcohol heat

O- This beer has a nice full flavor to the hops with good complexity and little bitterness. There are some malt notes but they can't keep up with the hops.

Poured from the bottle into a Dogfish Head Signature Ale glass.

A dull slightly orange amber body, but hints to murky/swampy brown making a somewhat two finger creamy head, and leaving just a small collar. Very large rings of lacing while finishing and consuming.

Nose is strange. A real weird mix of malt and hops, it sorts of an almost funky quality but nothing like a lambic, it's more of a manure funk if I could say that. Hits at lots of dank earth and soil, but not in a fun way. It's luckily not horrible.

Taste vastly improves from the nose. A real good juicy mouthfeel and palate. Thick hints of orange and citrus hop angles with a very strong malt presence. Almost maple syrup like in taste with a big finish with lots of palate coating richness. Good sweetness to this.

Overall this is quite interesting but I am not feeling like I would have this compared to other Hoppin Frog offerings. If I had this offered to me again I would still drink it, but I know I would pick many other beers over this if I had a choice.

Pours a hazy reddish amber, once finger thick white head, settles to a thin ring, splotches of delicate lace on the glass. Smell: caramel, twangy, soft graininess, mild sweet citrus. Taste: sugared grapefruit, orange citrus, mildly spicy, fairly sweet. Velvety feel, nice. It's... decent, too sweet, hops not as assertive as one might expect from this brewery.

A- Pours a nice darker copper with a nice beige colored head. Head has great retention and leaves some really nice layered lacing.

S- A really good smell of hops. Picking up a lot of citrus and tropical fruits. A good amount of spice from the rye as well.

T- Much more rye in the flavour than the nose. A great amount of rye spices. Quite a bit of tropical fruits. A nice malt backbone in here adds a bit of sweetness to it but very light.

M- Medium in both body and carbonation.

O- I really liked this one for sure, but hate the price.

Bottle received from my brother-in-law.

Nice cream-colored head that fades to a skim of foam on the top, but then, I didn't do an aggressive pour. Attractive mottled lacing. Color is a deep orange copper, slightly cloudy.

Nose is spicy rye with floral/citrus hops. Good rich mouthfeel with appropriate carbonation.

Taste is wonderful, rye predominates with a strong astringency on the back end. Hops are overripe citrus/floral like the nose with a residual hint of sweetness. A little bit of alcohol fumes finish.

If you like rye IPAs, I'm sure you'll enjoy this winner from Hoppin' Frog.

Hazy medium orange with a decently foaming off white head that laces. Smell is pine, orange pith, herbal mildly bready. Taste is similar..pith, grassy herbal and resin hop flavors, its medium in overall bitterness. There is a mildly earthy spicy character from the rye. It could use a bit more hop flavor and character to balance the rye, I get none of these tropical..mango et al notes others have mentioned. The body is medium with a moderate carbonation. Nothing too exciting here, solid Rye IPA but not otherwise remarkable.
