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 a large fluffy creamy 1+ finger head that fades pretty slowly, nice soapy lacing as well, a hazy reddish orange beer.

Nose pretty much what I expected, some spicy rye out front with the spicy grassy hops, bit earthy and herbal notes, with candied orange peel as well, and touch of a citrus note. That leads to sweet malts, candy like, caramel and notes of toffee, with a touch of a fruity rye component as well.

Taste brings more malty sweetness, caramel and candy syrupy out front, with a little sweetness and bready grainy notes. Then into rye, a candy rye flavor, with a mild spicy note and some mild fruity rye characters as well. Into hops, with a touch of a citrus fruity note, some candied orange peel, a mild spicy hop with some earthiness to it as well. Fair bitterness that ramps a bit on the finish. Finish attempts to dry but is still sticky and mildly sweet even a touch syrupy, bit more candy malts, caramel, touch of spicy rye, some spicy earthy hops, and a little fruitiness lingering.

Mouth is med bod, decent carb.

Overall meh, it's a basic malt forward caramel syrupy sweet rye IPA, with at least decent rye, but the sweet malts and nothing special by way of hops, this is a fairly boring beer that I would probably not get again.
