Mt Goat Rare Breed IPA (Winter 2011)

Mountain Goat (CUB/Asahi)

Published July 6, 2011

Well, is there anything that needs to be said about this beer? Here at Crafty Towers, we've not held back in our praise for previous batches of the Goat's Rare Breed IPA, which in its last incarnation was our most regular go to beer during the summer. We've not tasted the latest batch but assume that, having nailed it the past few times, they'll have got it right this time too.

So what does that mean to the uninitiated? Well, it's what we'd imagine a beer would want to drink if a beer ever wanted to drink a beer: lots of rich, slightly sweet caramel malts and plenty of big aromatic hops, all living together Wonder and McCartney-like and rounded off with a satisfyingly solid body and hearty bitterness. Shame it's draft only this time around as there's a big space in the Crafty fridge crying out for fresh supplies...
