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.

Idiosynkrasie (3929) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - NOV 24, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2012 650ml bottle. Slightly cloudy orangey golden colour with average to huge, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head of low density. Citrusy hoppy aroma with notes of tangerine, mango, passion fruit, additionally a perfumed touch comparable to fragrant/basmati rice. Taste is minimally sweet fruity, notes of grapefruit and passion fruit, malty basis with a note that must stem from the rye, bitter, minimally biting hoppy overtones; the biting part feels like a combination of hop, green pepper and lemon. Not the worst thing to happen to rice.

22oz bomber from Capone’s purchased on Black Friday, my guess is this is the same bottle I saw back in August. Poured a pretty good looking slightly thicker orange/amber with a large frothy off white head. Aroma of rye, older wet bread, some orange and yellow grapefruits, veggies and old hops. Medium body to start that slides to the creamy fuller side along with average carboantion. Flavor isn’t as good as the aroa with notes of old rye bread, some bad fruits, rye and spice, old rotting citrus fruits. Meh this might have been far better a few months ago now it’s almost a drain pour.

bottle. slight haze to a orange beer under a medium, white head. citrus, grapefruit hoppy nose. super bitter. it actually does have a passion fruit/bubblegum tropical flavor. medium bodied. enough sweetness for balance. i get the faintest hint of sugar cookies with cinnamon, but it must some strange interplay with the rye malt. i also notice some oak or wood sometimes? a cool ipa that tastes unique in an increasingly redundant style category.

dimenhetfield (2487) - , Florida, USA - NOV 24, 2012
On draft at Tryst in Delray. I believe this is the first Hoppin Frog beer I’ve ever had on draft, my how things have changed in South Florida. I’ve never been fully able to pull out the rye in most IPA’s, though I do sometimes get subtle hints on the back end. This one is just a nice easy drinking IPA, through and through.

Nickls (1872) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 22, 2012
Bottle. Fluffy light tan head, deep hazy golden orange. Very dank, herbal, and tonic nose. Very dank, and reminds me of Devil Dancer in the grassiness and quite intense. Medium body with soft carbonation.

tmoreau (2474) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - NOV 21, 2012
On tap at Lunar Brewing Co., and dispensed to a snifter showing a hazed, orange/amber hue, with a finger width of persistent, off white head froth, and thick ribbons of clingy lacing. The nose started with some malty sweetness, then citrus, light fruit, herbal, and floral scent, followed up by some resiny notes. The flavor added a medium hop bitterness that was dry, resiny, and lingering. A moderate warmth identified the alcohol, but a touch of soapiness was detected as the brew warmed. Just medium bodied, with presentable carbonation. A decent IPA, but a little pricey for the pour, and not necessarily snifter worthy imo.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bomber. This is awesome - full palate, big rye and floral/citrus elements. Fantastic beer.

fiulijn (14990) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 19, 2012
Bottle from Ølbaren, Copenhagen
Hazy dark amber color, with creamy and persistent head. The hop aroma is moderate but pleasant, a bit grassy, lightly resiny, and something more (must be the rye). The mouthfeel is smooth, the body is well structured and yet lean; good flavor of caramel with a light darker cereals quid, and a creamy touch; good bitterness level, never excessive; everything is well blended together.
Pleasant, well brewed, elegant.

Cybercat (3384) - Georgia, USA - NOV 18, 2012
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!
