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.

650 mL bottle. Coppery with some suspended ueast and a small white head. Mild aroma has a little citrus and a little resin. The flavour is much the same, with the rye being surprisingly restrained. Soft but effective bitterness.

BeerBunker (956) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - JUN 6, 2015
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 (1631) - 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,

Cobriza anaranjada con una buena capa de espuma que no llega a desaparecer. Aromas a piña, maracuya y algo de pino y caramelo. Buen cuerpo, cremosa. Balanceada, suavemente dulce pero proporcionando un amargor tropical.

neongolden (882) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 5, 2015
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.

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.
