Fairly dry. Not sweet. Nice hippy flavor. Very pleasant aftertastes. Strong hop flavor, but not strong aroma.

Rating #2005- 2015.09.27 #CraftTakesSeattle Day 4, Beer 107 - Draught at Taproom. Had cask conditioned side by side. Lots of peachy, grapefruity hops on the nose (guava-passion-mango juice) erupting from this foaming amber pour. Sharp hoppy overtones of citrusy, tropical sweetness pronounced into a firm bitterness, a balanced, crisp finish. Fantastic.

Can from Total Wine in Tukwilla. How old? Who knows? Maybe new, maybe years old. Though, I doubt its too old. Basically, this is what DIPA tasted like in the early 2000s and Hale’s doesn’t give a fuck. I guess super mongooseseses or mongoossi. Fortunately, the caramel malts aren’t overly sweet and caramel and the bitterness isn’t too high. Not my likes but within a doable range.

A 4 oz taster at Brewers by the Bay festival in Bellingham, WA. A pleasantly hopped IPA with a bit of malt for balance. 3.6

Supergoose pours with more head than I’ve come to expect from a 7.1% IPA, perhaps because of the higher malt content. Though that’s usually a turnoff to me, it balances out the plethora of hops pumped into this can of Heaven. From a smooth entry, you immediately get hit when a whollop of Bitter Hop that almost immediately gets calmed by the malt. Finishing neutral, you’re left demanding another sip to see if you can count the flavors as they flow over your taste buds. Excellent, albeit non-classical IPA.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear amber with a thin white head. Softly honeyed melon and citrus. Medium bodied, sticky malt, gentle melon and slow citrus. Gets a pithy sticky grapefruit syrup note through the finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2016 Can from BottleDog Kings X/Clerkenwell, Thursday 17th March 2016 consumed on the train en route to Edinburgh in the company of Dad and Barry Friday 18th March 2016. Hazy gold, maybe more warm gold in colour with a white head. The aroma is pine with a touch of grapefruit backed up by some maltiness. Sweet maltiness in the mouth, the flavour is very much in the vein of many other American IPA?s but citrus and pine jostle for attention also. Like this. A7 A3 T8 P4 Ov15 3.7
