12oz can of Hale's Supergoose served in one refillable Hillard's pint. Amber with lots of white head. Piney citrus aroma. Moderate bitterness, like a big IPA, rather than a double IPA. The can is labeled at 7.0% ABV, and by that metric this is on the edge of imperial booziness. Grapefruit and citrus peel, with a relatively thin and clean mouthfeel. Decent, and for me, quite local, but won't displace Deschutes as my go to PNW IPA.

Appearance: Mostly clear copper-tinged orange. Head is fairly small single digit, but light and fluffy with a decent retention rate. Lots of wonderful lacing and spatters of rocky surface foam like to float around.

Aromatics: Bready and sweet caramel are what first come to mind, followed by some mixed orange citrus and sweet north eastern white pine. There are subtle butter toffee notes that appear in and out of the bready caramel start.

Taste: Surprisingly sweet yeast with orange rind and white grapefruit. Once the bitter kicks in, it is earthy, but not pitchy.

Mouth: Buttery rich but with a decent carbonation tickle as well. Wonderful body, and juicy. The finish is pretty dry with that bitter lingering on for a while on the center of the palate.

Overall: A pretty decent IPA. Based on the wide range of reviews I was wasn't expecting what I got. I was looking forward to a mediocre or maybe mediocre brew. And true the flavour is fairly on par with most IPAs I was pleasantly surprised with its appealing aroma profile and mouth texture. Those to me were really well put together. And despite the 7% ABV I'm not getting any indication of that in the nose or tongue.

Pairing: I'm going East Indian with this one. It's bitter finish and buttery texture are dying to be paired with a good butter chicken and jasmine rice, with a naan or paratha bread. And don't be scared to add a little extra hot curry to that sauce, the bitterness will do a great job at balancing that out.

Poured into a pint glass at the Seattle Taproom in the SeaTac Airport. Color is a light Amber, head is very thin but quite long lasting. Scent is a very light citrus/hop. Flavor is dry hopped hops, barely a citrus note; malt is there but subtle. The finish is just right with a tart bitterness that is balanced and cut well.

12 oz. can:

Pours orange-tinted copper. A thin white head leaves lacing.

The smell is of tropical and citric fruit with some pine/resin. Caramelized bread in the back.

The taste is of tropical and citric fruits with pine/resin. Caramel adds sweetness in the back while allowing hop flavor and bitterness to pull through. Pleasant bitterness in the finish.

Smooth, pretty chewy body. Nice aftertaste.

A very nice IPA. Juicy hops with a solid malt backbone. Enjoyable.
