This is the Thirsty Planet’s Amber that’s been wood aged and dry hopped. It looks a pale yellow-orange color with a lot of foam that lets off a big grassy hop aroma. Grassy hops dominate the flavor as well, in a way that I completely forgot about this being an amber originally. I don’t pick up a distinctive malty sweetness but the beer does have an exceptionally well-rounded finish. Simply wonderful. It’s like a completely different beer and one I would gladly welcome seeing again.

A - lighter than other ambers in general, white head that fades quickly. nice carbonation.

S - light caramel, light hops, and slight tea notes

T - very light on taste, not bad, but very light for my preferences. very light caramel taste, the malts make it through the taste a bit and are refreshing

M - very light, crisp, a bit of silkiness in there as well.

D - very drinkable, and just the right amount of kick for the summer.

On-tap at the Draught House, Austin.

Looks like the carbonation issues surrounding the first batch of Thirsty Planet's Buckethead have been remedied, as 'the Goat' sports a healthy cap of newspaper-white foam. Good retention, too, although there isn't much lacing to be seen. Color is typical for the style, with a glowing, copper-amber body and appropriate clarity. Sweet toffee and caramel malts dominate the aroma. Yeasts smell buttery and fruity with a hint of shoe polish (in a good way, like Fuller's ESB).

Hops hit the tongue first with sharp, grassy notes. A citric, bitter hop bite lingers into the finish. Amber malts are slightly sweet and supply a superb balance of English toffee and caramel. Yeast contributes a light presence of tropical fruitiness. Everything seems to be working well together with Thirsty Goat, and the mouthfeel is similarly on-point. Crisp, well-carbonated, and slightly creamy on the back of the palate, but bitter and lively at the same time. All in all, a solid, refreshing Amber from the burgeoning Thirsty Planet brewers. Baaa!
