MOUNTAIN GOAT THE DELMONT

Mountain Goat The Delmont. This beer pays homage to Tom Delmont, one of the Mountain Goat crew.

I had been looking for this beer for a while around the traps but couldn’t find it. I was at the Bendigo Craft Beer Festival 2014 and the beer name leapt out from the festival guide. I headed over to the Mountain Goat tent and the man himself was standing there.

I looked around and couldn’t see it, so I asked Tom if it was pouring, Unfortunately, it was not. I eventually tracked down this mysterious beer and once I did I started seeing it everywhere.

It’s a West Coast style IPA, 6.8% ABV and 65 IBU. On the malt front are NZ Gladfield Ale, Vienna and Redback malts which apparently deliver a semi dry palate. It was mash hopped with Cascade. Then Chinook, Centennial, Amarillo and Cascade were thrown into the kettle and whirlpool. Finally it was dry hopped with Simcoe and Amarillo.

Golden yellow, surprisingly crystal clear with a creamy, hoppy head. Dank pine aroma possibly from the Simcoe dry hopping. Medium body and moderate carbonation.

A clean, hop forward beer with the malt taking a backseat. Primarily dank pine and citrus with an underlying stonefruit and floral flavour. The hop flavours linger with a moderately bitter and resinous mouthfeel. As it warms up the bready malt flavours from the Vienna malt and the stonefruit from the Amarillo becomes more apparent.

This is highly approachable beer that reminds more of an American Pale Ale than an IPA.

 

8/10
