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.

Intro: A 640ml bottle with a best before date of 13th July 2016. Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.
Appearance: It poured a clear dark brown with a reddish hue and a one finger beige head that dissipated quickly without leaving much lacing.
Aroma: Roasted black coffee dominates with some nuttiness and malts.
Taste: Creamy/milky coffee with notes of brown sugar and vanilla.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied but maybe slightly overcarbonated for this style.
Overall: This was a decent beer with nice aromas. However it was a little too creamy/milky for my liking and the body definitely on the light side.

Mountain Goat In-Breed The Delmont

Featured image was taken from http://www.brewsnews.com.au.

Brewery: Mountain Goat Beer Pty. Ltd.
Country: Australia
ABV: 6.8%
Style: IPA
Other Notes: In-Breed – This is the brewing expression of one of our goats, who we let off the leash in the brewery. He created this exclusive brew for you drinking pleasure.

Brewer Description: (from bottle) If Tom were a beer he wouldn’t be a mid-strength Australian lager, he wouldn’t be a pale ale or even a session IPA. He’d be a full-blown IPA. Tommy’s magnetically drawn to hops. So when it came his turn to brew an In-Breed it had to be a US style, West Coast IPA.

My rating: 4
My beeradvocate.com rating: 4.25
My ratebeer.com rating: 4.2

Intro: This was a 640ml bottle dated best before 3 May 2015 and poured into a Hoegaarden pint glass.
Appearance: The beer poured a clear copper amber colour with a one finger white head with good retention.
Aroma: The aroma is easily pineapple, grapefruit and pine with light caramel malts in the background.
Taste: Grapefruit is most prominent at the beginning, then pine followed by a caramel malt finish. It has a medium bitterness throughout that is nice.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with medium carbonation.
Overall: A nice IPA overall. The bitterness and light caramel malt in the background is well balanced and enjoyable to drink. I would buy this again.
