Goat’s Leap is a contemporary IPA that stays close to the style’s traditional roots. Full-bodied, strong and with a striking bitter finish, it’s a big beer brimming with hop character. Goat’s Leap is brewed using the best quality Maris Otter and Crystal malts and hopped with a blend of English whole hops.

Lovely gentle, but also full-bodied, fruity, well-hopped bitter. Rich orange, small loose head. Very easy to grink at 5.5%.

DruncanVeasey (7768) - NUNEATON, 3rd, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2012
Cask handpull, The Wellington, Brum. Lightly misted brass with a good slick foam. Soft pepper, orange peel-like aroma. Creamy mouthfeel; orange mousse, blackcurrant and almond smoothness; late cherry and toffee. Smooth but with boozy orange liqueur undercurrents. OK.

This is a phenomenal beer! pours a lovely pale golden body, thin white head, bready aroma but not like any other I have experienced, quite interesting sweet highlight. Quite soft tasting upfront, has a cool sweet caramel like taste, kicks off at the end with a bitter taste however the heartier the sip the more the caramel/toffee highlights come in! Really loving this beer! If your into your ales, I would say this is a must try!

Bottle from Beers of Europe, King’s Lynn
Hazy golden color, beautiful, with generous head. The aroma unfortunately is metallic, with minestrone vegetables. Dryish mouthfeel, poor malt flavor, again with some metallic feeling and vegetables; correct bitterness.
