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.

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
