43cl on tap (6,2%) at Taps Beer Bar, KL. Clear amber with an off white head. Aroma of citrus, tropical fruits (passion), malt and caramel. Sweet and fruity with a nice lightly bitter finish. Very refreshing after a long day in the heat in Kuala Lumpur. Decent IPA! (2012-05-04)

Really, really nice beer. Found beer to have the base mountain goat flavours but far more mellow, less robust but never lost any of the amazing aroma and taste I enjoy from the mountain goat brewery. Will be stocking up on this one!

3.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Has a nice big head with decent lacing although im not getting much aroma from this at all. The flavour in this bottle does make up for the lacking aroma how ever. An almost sweet grapefruit and a subtle malt backing... very nice.. I haven’t had many IPA’s like this one so cheers mountain goat you have done well.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2012 From a 640ml bottle on 20/11/2011. Pours a dark orange with a big lasting head. Has a decent fruity hop and caramel aroma. Has a sweet caramel malt backbone with a nice hoppy finish. Certainly not over the top by IPA standards but enjoyable. Rating 3.6.
Re-rate - From a 330ml bottle on 24/10/2012. Appears to now be a Mountain Goat standard. Not much different to what I’ve said above, other than the head is less prominent, and I think I was more than a little harsh with the rating the first time. Just a really solid American style IPA, with a lovely sweet/bitter balance.
