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.

Draft. Pours clear gold with a fizzy beige head. Tastes like orange hops, grapefruit, resin, nutty and caramel malt. Medium body and low carbonation. Smells like orange hops, grapefruit hops, resin, nutty, and caramel malt.

Can, Beers of Europe, celebrating Alex Hales’ 171 vs. Pakistan. Quite a deep amber colour, curious bubbles, white foam. Crystal malts are strong in this one, sweet. Pine and citrus hops, quite bitter, not overly long finish. Not my preferred version of the style but decent nonetheless.

Stop #9 for the beat cup of chili at Mike’s chili. Had this beer a few times the only balird beer on tap. Dark amber pour, nice hop aroma, hoppy tast. this is a full pour it might take me over the top, we’ll see.

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.

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.

12oz can from Valhalla’s Gmoat. Orange brown big foamy head. Apricot hop aroma. Apricot mango flavour. Sweet hoppy aftertaste. A bit too sweet for me.
