Mountain Goat IRA (India Red Ale)

Style
India Red Ale
ABV
6.4%
Bitterness
60 IBU

About time too! Having embarked on a run of IPA variants over the past couple of years - India Pale Ale, Double IPA, Coffee IPA, Thorny Goat, Gypsy & The Goat, Before The Dawn, Rye IPA (RIPA), Hip Hop Hooray IPA - the brewers at Mountain Goat had been busying themselves with other styles. But this week, like a subcontinental version of Sesame Street, their beer is once again brought to you by the word "India". And the word "hops" too. This India Red Ale features four US varieties of them - Ahtanum, Citra, Cascade and Amarillo for those at the front - and in such quantities that the beer clocks up 60 IBU on the bitterness scale. That said, one of their reps tells us the bitterness seems even higher, so look out, hop fiends. It's a bright red beer that's dominated by citrus and spice aromas and is heading out and about in keg form right about now...
