Excellent IPA. Big fluffy head with lacing. Creamy body. Big malt body, lots of pine and grapefruit. You know, all the good stuff.

Generally, a grapefruit hop bomb. Delicious and always a go-to. 7.1% abv? Holla! $5.99 a bomber is pushing it, but always a good chose. I’m not sure why Hale’s still makes the regular Mongoose IPA. Supergoose is probably three times better in every beer tasting criteria.

Nice-looking beer. Deep orange with a fluffy head that leaves behind solid lace. Palate is smooth and very creamy. Very balanced. Malts are somewhat sweet with hints of bread dough and light caramel candy. Hops are floral and citrusy. Light spices in the background. Pleasant IPA.

Bomber shared by MartinT.
Appearance : Hazy amber with a small head. Lots of lacing. Haven’t decided if I hate of idf I love the label. I’m torn appart really.
Aroma : Great floral and citrusy hops with light overcooked caramel.
Taste : Great resinous hops with a nice bitter and resinous finish. Very resinous actually. Finish is borderline harsh. Great carbonation level.
Overall : Nice stuff. Sharp finish maybe a bit too much. Nice light caramel. Nice hops. I liked it. Still not sure about the label though.

MartinT (9267) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 31, 2011
My Bottom Line:
This India Pale Ale’s sustained earthy, resinous hop bitterness succeeds orange-y fruitiness, stemming from a plump caramelized malt base.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam coats the hazy copper.
-The mouthfeel is pleasantly pillowy; soft effervescence and healthy dextrins.
-A dash of citrus adds complexity in the finish.
-This doesn’t really stand out on the West Coast, but it’s still a fine pint of IPA.
-The malt structure could have been tighter and more talkative, for my tastes.

Tap @ Meconi’s. Hazy orange-gold pour with a short, persistant white head which leaves a heavy lace. Pleasant pine and citrus nose with malty notes. Solid, medium body and moderate carbonation with a hop-forward presentation over toasty sweet malts. Hops are predominantly spruce and citrus and there is a good amount of umami entering in the finish.

Jkripp (141) - Washington, USA - JAN 8, 2011
Supergoose has a great hoppy aroma with hints of citrus and roasty malts. It is dark golden in color and appears unfiltered. It tastes very well hopped, no other substantial flavors appear in the taste. This is a standard IPA.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 6, 2010
GABF 2010. Pours a light bright amber with a sticky head. Aroma is pine, citrus, grass, grapefruit, orange peel with medium caramel malt- mostly fresh, fairly powerful hops. Flavor is some toasty caramel malts, then the grass, grapefruit, tacky sappy pine and citrus, orange then a strange cold coffee hint? Strange finish- herbal grassy bitterness on a slightly sharp caramel. Mostly fresh and pretty good- just finished a little strange.

This was a really super IPA. Great flavor balance and good hops. This was my last beer of the evening and the best.

From a 22 oz bottle out of my beer cellar (forgot where I purchased this) it poured a dark clear amber with a good sized off-white head and lots of lacing. The nose is caramel malts with lots of aromas from floral and citrus hops. Medium body and a someone lively alcoholic mouthfeel. Flavor is dominated by the malts but the hops are there. The finish moves toward the citrus hops and there is an alcoholic burn in the final sips.
