Mountain Goat Rare Breed Pulped Fiction Blood Orange IPA

Brewery: Mountain Goat Beer Pty. Ltd.
Country: Australia
ABV: 7.8%
Style: American Double IPA
Other Notes: Water – Melbourne water. Malt – Vienna, Redback, American Ale, Maris Otter, Pale Crystal and Shepherd’s Delight. Hops – Citra and Mosaic. Adjunct – Blood Orange.

Brewer Description: (from bottle) This is a Double IPA with a blast of real blood orange juice added during secondary fermentation. The tang from the juice combines with the citrus-like characters of Citra and Mosaic hops creating a sensation equal parts bitter and tart. It’s big, clean and thirst quenching.

Intro: A 640ml bottle with a best before date of 30th November 2017. Poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass.
Appearance: Poured a clear copper colour with a slight orange hue, a one finger off white head that settles to a thin layer with sticky lacing.
Aroma: Pine, citrusy grapefruit and orange rind, pith and peel with hints of tropical mango and caramel malt.
Taste: Citrus orange rind and pith with grapefruit peel bitterness, some resinous pine, with a good touch of sweet caramel malt and blood orange to balance.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate to light carbonation.
Overall: This was nice and easy to drink. A good balance between the hop bitterness and sweet-ish caramel malt. It’s probably on the border of being between an IPA and Double IPA, but overall, I’d say that it’s an enjoyable Double IPA.

    1. Hey, I’ve been meaning to make a list/comment on where to purchase/drink beer in Hong Kong. Just haven’t had the time to get round to doing it yet. I feel Hong Kong has improved a lot over the last few years with regards to beer choices. Distributors and retailers such as The Bottle Shop, HK Brewcraft, Hop Leaf, Americraft and Craftissimo are probably the main five I get my beers from. There are quite a lot of beers that I’ve reviewed that aren’t readily available in Hong Kong especially my favourite Lambics, and I get those from overseas either from friends or when I travel.
