COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An IPA matching coffee to hops. Coffee can be full of fruity aromatic character, and we all know what hops do to an IPA. Here we’ve made them sing together. Same choir, same song.

Note: Uses Nicaraguan beans from 7 Seeds and Cascade and Galaxy hops.

Someone out there knows what I like and has bottled it. Opened one of these after a couple of disappointing ’entrees’. An absolute winner on all counts. Love the Goat!

On tap at Biero. Great hoppy beer. Aromas of caramel and grass. Taste has a sweet start, with bitterness taking over for a long finish. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Amber, with a frothy head.

Awesoem IPA really nice aromatic with just a twist of coffee. Not as much coffee as I had hoped for but what a great IPA that they use as their base pretty much nailed it for me. More coffee yea, but the beer is still so tasty it doesn’t seem to matter.

Bottle. Pours a dark golden with a solid white head. Nose has pine, grapefruit, citrus and sweet caramel/coffee malts. Taste is really fruity blending with roasted espresso. Coffee blended in beautifully leaving mild bitterness and is easy going on the palate. Great beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at the Mountain Goat Brewery. The first of its kind in Australia I believe. Pours a deep clear golden colour, exactly like the normal Rare Breed IPA. I like the Coffee kick on the palate, a little hint of Coffee on the aroma too, but mostly hop aroma still, an interesting beer. Nice work on coming up with a totally new twist on IPA independently.

Three times the coffee was added but I only got a hint of it once or twice still a refreshing brew but pretty pricey for an Australian drop purchased at home. Though I’m yet to try a beer I didn’t like from the Mountain Goat lads even if they are Victorians.

Mountain goat know how to make a good IPA with a twist. Hoppy on the nose with a little coffee. Taste is more Malty then Hoppy with medium bitterness and some coffee. Another good beer from mountain goat.

640ml bottle. Pours a clear golden amber, with a medium off-white head, which lasts reasonably well and leaves decent lace. There is a fairly strong white cherry aroma, mixed with some citrus hops and a touch of coffee bitterness. Fruity hops up front, with some peach and lime notes, mix nicely with a touch of bitter, yet somewhat fruity coffee. These give way to burnt caramel malt, which also makes a pleasant blend with the coffee flavour. The coffee becomes a little more pronounced in the finish, and leaves a nice, bitter aftertaste. This is a good coffee IPA. The coffee makes its presence felt throughout, but is never intrusive or dominating. Instead it creates an interesting and pleasant blend with the fruitiness of the hops. Nice stuff.
