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.

No, I didn’t get a case of Westvleteren XII, but I did snag this limited-issue, better-than-expected Rye IPA from Akron.

STYLE: American IPA

ABV: 7%

LOOK: The kind of beer you want to drink. The kind of beer you need to drink. Orange and mellow maroon with a deceptively medium body that from some angles boasts a jelloy consistency. I wish there was more to the head that fizzles quickly as the carbonation, what there is of it, races to the top.

NOSE: Stinky cheese, heavy rye, dog park, and pent-up pine. A more sophisticated Rogue Dead Guy Ale.

MOUTH: It might be the mood I’m in. I don’t miss the hops, even though I was promised – indeed, induced by – an aggressive dose. It’s smooth, earthy, smooth. And I think I’m starting to fall for All Things Rye. There’s more here of course: grass, chives, and balance. The texture, among other things, will bring me back, somewhere in the fine line between wholesome and chewy. Excellent.

tomekk1978 (278) - POLAND - APR 20, 2014
Barwa: głęboko bursztynowa, zmętniona. Piana biała obfita, drobno pęcherzykowa, utrzymująca się i oblepiająca szkło. Wysycenie wysokie. Aromat:słodowo- chmielowy z lekką nuta alkoholową. Cytrusy, owoce tropikalne, lekkie nuty leśne, niemniej są one raczej subtelne i niezbyt wyraziste, choć z czasem zdają się zyskiwać. Całość dość przyjemna i zbalansowana. Smak: słodowy, ale raczej wytrawny, zdecydowanie pełny. Wyraźna chmielowa kontra, ale goryczka najwyżej średnia, nie zalegająca. Lekko alkoholowy koniec. Ze względu na wysokie wysycenie raczej do wolniejszego sączenia. Ostatnie piwo z Hoppin’ Frog, jakie miałem na stanie. Po raz pierwszy jasne. Okazało się całkiem solidne, jednak jak dla mnie goryczka mogłaby być wyższa. Barwa i piana bez zarzutu, aromat także niezły, choć mógłby być bardziej intensywny. W smaku nie wyczułem zbytnio nut ziemistych charakterystycznych dla piw żytnich ( w przeciwieństwie np. do Żytorillo Pinty). Ogólnie nieźle, ale dość wysoka cena trochę obniża ocenę.

Bottled @ ZZT 9, small sample. Bit hazy amber color, short frothy white head. Aroma of pine, bit grapefruit, bit grainy. Medium bitter in taste. More based on rye than IPA. Not as hoppy as I had expected, but still a very nice drinker.

bhensonb (10355) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 3, 2014
Bomber from Knightly in Orlando, FL. Pours amber gold with a foamy off-white head. Aroma of light stone fruit and rye spice. Med body or more. Flavor is a strong shock of rye with light stone fruits following. It’s hoppy and rye, and the rye seems to add spicy bitter, but there’s not complete dryness. Quite a beer.

marcus (6018) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 3, 2014
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours orange copper with a thick foamt off-white head and a delicate floral aroma. There is a bitter rye flavor that finishes sweet and fruity. This is an unusual IPA in that there is a more complex flavor than most. Very tasty.

Taste: Medium bitter and sweetness with low sourness. Palate: Thick grainy texture, light quite airy body, average/prickly carbonation, lingering astringent fruity, rye, malty, peppery finish.

Beerhunter111 (5605) - Hasborn, GERMANY - FEB 1, 2014
Ins Glas ergießt sich ein leicht trübes bernsteinfarbenes IPA mit einer schönen großen und stabilen Schaumkrone. Es riecht sehr nach exotischen Früchten, etwas nach Malz, leicht würzig. Geschmack malzig trocken, fruchtig nach Südfrüchten, fruchtig bitter. Klasse!
