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.

Strong aroma has a woody - and decidedly rye - overtone, along with malty and subtle fruity notes. It comes out of the bottle a dark, somewhat hazy amber with a very thick and rather persistent pale wheat head. Scrumptious flavor has a malty core and a strong woody rye overtone, plus more than a hint of fruit, equally apple and orange with a touch of banana; and a hoppy undertone. Texture has firm, smooth body and plenty of sass and fizz. Let this goose juice you!

Dark orange pour from bomber. Loose mild head. Rye is outstanding. Crisp and smooth. Malty and very hoppy.

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - NOV 17, 2012
22 oz. bottle via trade with jsquire - Pours a hazy amber color with a half finger thick off white head. Light carbonation. Aroma is toasted malt, and herbal and resin hops with a touch of rye. Light spotty lacing. Flavor is pine and light citrus hops with some toasted malt and a hint of rye. Finish is still fairly bitter. Medium to full body. A good beer, still I would have liked to have tried this one fresh. Thanks Jeff.

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - NOV 17, 2012
Pours a hazy and copper beer with a white head. The aroma is malt and hops with passionfruit, citrus and melon. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is bitterness and some sweetness. Overall a good beer.

rlgk (10044) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - NOV 17, 2012
Draught at Örebro Beer&Whisky Festival 2012. Golden beer with an offwhite head. Floral herbal finish, grassy, perfume, citrus, grapefruit, lemon, hay, banana notes, woody, some mint and raisins. Hoppy floral flavor, herbal, earthy, ryebread, woody, dry, hay notes, lemongrass. Not the best from this brewery.

Pailhead (4572) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - NOV 16, 2012
On tap: The aroma consists of citrus, caramel, fruit, light grapefruit, and rye. It’s a transparent amber with a one finger creamy off-white head with decent retention and lots of clumpy lacing. The flavor starts with caramel and fruit. The finish has citrus, rye, and grapefruit. It’s medium bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel. Overall, rye IPAs always seek okay to me but never great. This falls in that category...probably just personal preference.

Bottle courtesy of Greg at Paradiso Dupont, thanks! Cloudy golden amber color, small white head. Aroma of spiced rye bread. Taste is spiced summer fruit. Nice.

umich03jm (1766) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - NOV 12, 2012
Pours a mostly clear dark orange-amber color with a small amount of head that quickly faded. Aroma is rye, caramel, grapefruit, tropical fruit, and pineapple. Taste is mildly sweet, lots of fruit and spicy rye. Finish is lingering grapefruit. Mouthfeel is pretty full and a bit oily. I like the overall taste but the beer is very flat. Not sure if it’s an old bottle, can’t find a bottling date.

anders8000 (390) - aarhus.c., DENMARK - NOV 8, 2012
Slightly hazy orangeish amber colour with a small off-white head. Aroma is a bunch of citrus, mild rye bread, some tropical fruits and a quite nice bready and toffeeish malty base to it. Flavour is rather similar, and though being rather hoppy it’s still very nicely balanced.

Bottled. Slightly hazy orangeish amber colour with a small off-white head. Aroma is a bunch of citrus, mild rye bread, some tropical fruits and a quite nice bready and toffeeish malty base to it. Flavour is rather similar, and though being rather hoppy it’s still very nicely balanced. Mild nettle-like notes in the finish.
