Wild Goose Brewing Company - Wild Goose Indian Pale Ale
Int’l Bittering Units (IBUs): 55
Serving Temperature: 45-50° F
Danger! Danger! Danger Will Robinson! Big Beer Alert! The Goose’s IPA is brewed with a combination of two row pale, torrified wheat, caramel 20 and carapils malts. It’s hopped up big time with both First Gold and East Kent Goldings hops. Any yes…It is in fact dry-hopped as you might suspect with an IBU of 55! We find this delightful IPA to be a moderately full-bodied beer with a rich yellow-gold color. It has a sweet hop nose, reminiscent of freshly baked bread, with floral hop notes as well. The sweet hoppiness hits the tongue up front and stays with you through a long, bitter finish. The body is filled with a chewy maltiness that leads beautifully into the hoppy finish. Overall, Yeah Baby!
Since firing up their brewkettle in 1989, the Wild Goose Brewery has been producing some of the finest beers in the East. They consistently gain the praises of beer critics and have brought home more medals than Carl Lewis, Mark Spitz and the entire Yugoslavian Women’s Weight Lifting team combined! Many of the original recipes for the Wild Goose beers were produced by Mark Scease, who learned his trade at Peter Austin and also studied with Alan Puglsey. For anyone who doesn’t know Alan Pugsley, he has helped design and set up some of the best microbreweries in the United States including Shipyard, Geary’s, and Old Nutfield. His attention to detail and obvious knowledge of hops and malts is brutally apparent to beer lovers and beer judges alike.
Our first beer from Wild Goose is their India Pale Ale. A rare English-style ale whose roots go back to the British Empire, IPA’s were traditionally brewed to mature while being shipped to India from Britain. To keep the beer fresh during the long voyage, the brewers would heavily hop these ales in order to produce a high gravity.
