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.

yngwie (16768) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 22, 2013
Bottle, 22oz. A big, off-white head forms over an unclear, hazy dark golden to amber body. The aroma is resiny and citrusy with some maltyness. Bubble gum hints, lemon and a faint peppery hint. It could use a tad more bitterness, as the malty sweetness has too much room. Lemon, resins and some bubble gum and pepper hints. Full body, a tad too sweetish and carbonated, but very silky on the palate. Lasting finish with citrus peel and pine cones. A nice one indeed, although a tad too sweet. 130222

drowland (7917) - Georgia, USA - FEB 17, 2013
2/17/13. 750mL bottle from Grassroots. Mostly clear copper pour with a frothy/soapy khaki head that sizzles to a ring but laces a ton. Fruity tropical hop aroma with melon, pineapple, and caramel. Slightly sweet fruity hop flavor as well with more tropical fruits, a kick of rye spice, caramel, and lingering hop bitterness. Tasty!

Ibrew2or3 (8408) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 17, 2013
22oz bomber courtesy of BMMillsy. It pours clear copper supporting a nice looking tan head of foam. The aroma offers up spicy hops, a spicy rye bread note, some pine resin and faint sweet citrus hard candy. The taste is smooth and dangerously drinkable. This is balanced with rich yum and resiny bitter pine hops, spicy rye bread, some floral hop bitterness and then a mild citrus hoppiness sweetened by some malts. Below those notes is a pleasing yet modest degree of black tea earthiness. I’m really liking this.

jcweaver (768) - VA Beach, Virginia, USA - FEB 11, 2013
Bottle. Pours orangish with a medium off-white head. Aromas of tropical fruit and citrus hops, rye and moderate sweet caramel. Flavor is fairly sweet with notes of caramel, tropical fruits, citrus and spicy rye. Similar finish with a medium bitterness and a more pronounced rye note. A little sweet but overall a great beer.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 4, 2013
In short: A toasted, well balanced, clean, dry and fruity/herbal IPA with rye coming out strong. Vey good
How: Bottle 22oz. Consumed not long after purchase from a PA store (probably fresh)
The look: Clear golden-orange body topped by a medium beige head quickly dissipating to a persistent layer of foam and leaving lots of lacings on the glass
In long: Nose is fruity hops, plenty of freshly toasted rye bread, an spiky herbal spiciness. Taste is just as straightforward. Plenty of toasted rye, good amount of fruity hops (citrus and exotic fruits), nice herbal character, some piney notes. The toasted character is quite strong in this one and creates a pleasant dryness. Full comfortable mouthfeel with plenty of soft bubbles. Despite the “hopped-up” part of the name, this is not a hop-bomb, this is more a well balanced beer. The last few oz of the bottle was cloudy yeasty and much more fruity. Nothing complex or revolutionary here but if you like rye based IPAs with rye coming out strong (I do) then you will like it. And I don’t wanna brag but I believe you guys should take my ratings very seriously, apparently I’m an important person, even Hewlett Packard customer service tells me that my call is very important to them, 145 times in the past hour only.
