3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Fritz European Fry House in Bremerton, Washington, 16 ounces, served in shaker glass, $3.50 per pint.
I assume that Supergoose refers to this being a hopped-up version of Hale’s Mongoose IPA, which, as far as I can tell, appears to be true.
Color: Hazy orange core with a hazy yellow-orange aura, topped with a thin white head. Small dots and lines of lacing are left behind.
Nose: I smell, in this order: a can of pineapple chunks, apricot, and a whiff of citrus.
Palate: The flavors include bitter orange that borders on grapefruit, pineapple, apricot, and a hint of hay. The heavy bitterness lingers in the finish. The fruit sweetness is almost too much, but it actually complemented the dipping sauces for my fries rather well. The spiciness of the Spicy Curry Ketchup and Sweet Chili sauces toned down the sweetness of this ale and really let the hoppy bitterness shine through.

Citrus with that standard rusty note and a bit of floral hop. Slightly sweet from the crystal. A good brew. Immensly drinkable.

Tap at brewery with commonmac and rosskyle and wildcard. Copper with medium white head. Hoppy aroma. Sweet and grapefruit. Very clean. Also pretty typical of this style. Decent.

Nice aroma. Good head retention. Little to be desired on the over all taste.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Canned from LifeSource. Hazy amber with some orange highlights. Nose is somewhat pungent with some citric hop qualities. Quite sweet and fruity. Some grapefruit hoppiness. Haven’t had an IPA this sweet in awhile. Good and tasty. The sweetness stops just short of cloying. Pretty tasty.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Lasting thin white foamy head atop a deep brown orange coloured body. Nose of candied malt and toasted malt. Very sweet, cloying. It’s oddly on the cusp of a DIPA yet the malt is really overpowering and the hops are highly potent too. Not really getting into this beer. Tastes like a McMenamin brewpub beer. Purchased at The Penny Farthing in Oak Bay.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber. Unclear orange brown, mostly lasting firm off-white foam. Floral foresty hop aroma. Taste is bitter floral hop forward, some citrus and evergreen, lean backseat c-malts. Average carbonation, medium bodied, well hopped. Okay. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

Poured from the tap. Clear orangey yellow with white head. Light citrusy and grassy hops, hint of biscuit malt, finishes medium dry with a bit of resin. Nice blend.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
[3/3/15] Draught at Hales Ales Brewery & Pub in Seattle. Deep golden color. Pleasant fruity hops aroma, a bit “green”, with a mild honey-ish malty note. Flavor of big fruity hops with some pine and “green” notes. Medium-bodied. Very good.

There's nothing wrong with a slightly above average IPA. I could drink it all day long, but doesn't strike a unique chord in any significant way. Although the carbonation is fairly high and it feels slightly electric on the tongue.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Semi cloudy amber pour, with an off white head. Not really a good look for an IPA. Sweet bread, bitterness, caramel, a biter sugary, and citrus rind. Bitter and malty, drinkable, but not very good.
