MOUNTAIN GOAT IPA

Mountain Goat IPA. Over the last few years this beer has hit the shelves as a limited release. It was available as part of their Rare Breed series in 640ml bottles.

After many requests they have decided to make it part of their permanent releases and it is now available in 330ml bottles. The recipe has been tweaked over the years using different malts and hops. The current incarnation uses ale, wheat and crystal malts and is hopped with Citra and Galaxy. At 6.2% ABV and 65 IBU it packs some punch.

It looks like an amber ale and has a sweet malt aroma with a fine detergent-like head. Medium body, relatively low carbonation and a smooth mouthfeel.

Sweet caramel flavour leading into a citrus / stone fruit flavour. Flavour-wise it tastes more like a golden ale than an IPA. There’s a strong stonefruit flavour, and the malt flavours are quite sweet creating a bittersweet finish.

It’s like a sickly sweet James Squire Golden Ale with a fuller mouthfeel.

 

6/10
