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.

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.

Scopey (14007) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2013
Bottle, thanks to Louie. It pours hazy orange with a small white head. The nose is pine, oily hop, orange, tangerine, mango and fruit salad sweets. The taste is tropical fruit, five alive fruit juice, rye, earth, spice, pine, light tartness and some alcohol warmth with a dry, bitter finish. Pretty delicious.

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.

jcos (1851) - Maryland, USA - JAN 29, 2013
Location/Date:Bottle on January 26th, 2013 during day 2 of Nerd Beer Epic Weekend.

Appearance: Pours a dark orange.
  Aroma: Aroma light citrus, rye.
  Taste: Light medium bitterness, rye, citrus.
    Palate: Medium light body, faint stickyness.

Summary: Sadly the last beer of the Nerd Beer Epic Weekend for me. A pretty solid rye style IPA, way better than the triple IPA I had from Hoppin Frog before(as a beer/ipa).

ansermadide (1526) - Kyle, Texas, USA - JAN 28, 2013
This fine version of a rye IPA has an amber/orange color and a pinkish white head. The aroma is fresh, grainy, and almost evergreen, but earthy. There’s a slight dark caramel stickiness in the nose’s finish. The mouth feel is very nice… just right, now light but still light enough to let the flavor shine. It finishes like a double IPA, but with the weight of an English IPA. There’s also a slight sourness in the finish. I’m not sure, but I think I taste lime in the finish. Hmm… neat fruitiness.

Tasty and refreshing. Definite peppery spiciness from the rye. Good balance on the hops.

ben4321 (6137) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Location: Bottle at Nerd Beer Epic Weekend, 1/26/13

Aroma: This one has a nice nose, plenty grapefruit, citrus, pine, some rye, and some spice
Appearance: This one pours a caramel color with a small of-white and minimal lace
Flavor: The taste has a little sweetness, with plenty of rye , malts, and a mid-plus bitterness
Palate: The body is light-medium, there’s some tingly carbonation, and a little dryness
Overall Impression:  Really solid IPA. Maybe not a top of example style, but solid. It’s almost a little sticky, but, overall, this is a more then enjoyable beer.

acearl (510) - The Ham, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Poured into a true pint shaker, burnt orange hue with lasting creamy white head, chunky yeast sediment bits, smells a faint passion fruit citrus and minimal rye, juicy texture minimal carbonation, kind of like Hawaiian Punch but instead of the sugary aftertaste its got a bitterness, its good but not for $10, overall would say disappointed by lack of anything real special to say, if to say anything, a tropical citrus hop with a tad of spice
