COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
American hops dominate this Rye IPA, creating an assertive citrus and passion fruit character. An old-world flavor from rye malt adds the perfect compliment to Goose Juice’s big, satisfying hop flavor and aroma. Originally home-brewed by our beloved brewer Goose, its wonderful combination of flavors inspired us to brew this specialty IPA.

On tap at the brewery. Pours hazy orange with a foamy beige head. Aroma is of rye, hops, citrus, and tropical fruit. Taste is of hops, citrus, and some tropical fruit. Has a rye flavor underneath the hops. Bready malt backbone. Lingering dry, bready taste. Had a nice bitter hop burn to it. Mouthfeel is very carbonated and light. Drinks really easy. I like it quite a bit.

Psytron (1553) - Turku, FINLAND - APR 28, 2015
Smell of hops, a faint of rye malt. Red amber colour, massive beige/orange head. Aroma of alcohol (much stronger than expected for 7 ABV), hops. Not so much rye to be noted, although suitably bitter. A faint sweetness due to alcohol. Some citrus to be noted. Soft and plentiful carbon,

javiercrasher (219) - Granada, SPAIN - MAR 14, 2015
Cobriza anaranjada con una buena capa de espuma que no llega a desaparecer. Aromas a pińa, maracuya y algo de pino y caramelo. Buen cuerpo, cremosa. Balanceada, suavemente dulce pero proporcionando un amargor tropical.

UPDATED: MAY 15, 2015 (650ml bottle @ VilleValla Pub, Linköping, Jan 23 2015) Pours a very hazy dark brownish orange with a moderate white head. Aroma has lots of spicy rye and a bit of grain as well as caramel sweetness, a bit of grassy notes and some wisps of passion fruit, grapefruit and other tropical fruit. On the palate, rye and caramel lead as well, pine needles, grass, floral, grapefruit. Moderate bitterness holds rye, citrus pith and light pine in the finish. Medium full, sort of thick in the mouth. Frankly this bottle did not drink like it was particularly fresh, so while I quite like the rye character, it lacked the strength in the hops to match it. If fresher, I think I might like it more.

Ron (2951) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 26, 2015
Bottle. Pours hazy copper with creamy off-white head and lace. Aroma is rye, malt, light caramel, grassy and floral hops, light pineapple and light lemon. Flavor is a good balance of fresh hops, rye dryness, lightly toasted malts, and citrus bitterness. Dry finish with a touch of bitterness and sweetness lingering. Medium body and carbonation. Thanks to Erica and Chris for giving me this as a Christmas present.

ogreface (1390) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 21, 2015
Ezek a rozs ipák igen megosztóak szoktak lenni. Ez is egy igen érdekes darab, édesen, gyümölcsösen, karamellásan, csipkebogyósan kezd, aztán jelennek meg a fenyőgyantás, citrusos, komlós aromák, amik egy nem túl brutál, de szép keserűvel és szárazsággal zárják le ezt a sört. Egyébként igen szép a kinézete, főleg a szinte elpusztíthatatlan habja.

Douberd (3130) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JAN 5, 2015
(Hoppin Frog Hopped-Up Goose Juice Rye IPA) Bottle 650 ml at home, served into a teku. ABV 7% Deep copper orange colour on the body, clear, with a big and thick off-white head on top. Very good retention, the foam collapses slowly and leaves medium lacing on the glass. Very nice aroma, very fruity, fresh cut grass, rye, light passion fruit. Nice taste too, again rye, grass, lots of fruits, light pine notes. More sweet than your average IPA but there is a good enough bitterness on the aftertaste, with satisfying duration. Medium bodied, good carbonation. Very good.

So Draught 55 a bar i frequent has a once a month baby brunch in back room so took wife and sone for food, kids music, and I had some brew perfect. This is hazy orange pour nose of tropical fruit and rye. Tastes of rye, perfume, pine, grapefruit, dusty hops, light caramel, and honey. Decent mouthfeel tasty brew but lacks some punch of excitement.
