Originally a cask Autumn seasonal.
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.

Ungstrup (29987) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2010
Bottled bought at GBBF 2010. A dark golden beer with a lazing off-white head. The aroma has notes of spices, malt, and sour vommit. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, elderflowers, spices, and caramel, leading to a dry roasted finish.

Papsoe (25074) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2010
Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of Ungstrup. Pours a clear deep golden with a huge and frothy off-white head leaving quite some lacework. Typical British hops in the nose. Light body, very smooth mouthfeel, sweet fruit and a little licorice. Quite some bitterness in the finish. A decent drinker though. 100910

larsga (6446) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 3, 2010
Medium offwhite head. Amber body. Vague floral fruity aroma with citric notes. Dry-sweetish mango and citrus taste with malty notes. Soft, smooth mouthfeel. Fullish body. Dry citric floral aftertaste with grassy strawy notes. Toffee, alcohol and perfume can also be made out. Decent, but weird, and not entirely successful. (0.5l bottle, RealAle.com.)

johninmelb (1127) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2010
Aroma is slightly musty with some citrus. Pours pale copper / deep gold with a thin head. Flavour is slightly cloying with a thin mouthfeel. On the plus side there is plenty of good bitterness and some underpinning hoppy grapefruit and resin. All told a passable if workmanlike proper IPA.
