Glass poured from a growler purchased at the brewery for $12. This was the first Iron Goat Beer I drank when they had their grand opening celebration at Jones Radiator, but one of the owners assures me that the recipe has already been refined since then, as they’ve broken in their new, pro system. Interestingly enough, the hops used in this beer originate in the Southern Hemisphere.
Poured a dark orange-amber color with just a little bit of chill haze and a creamy, beige head that dropped somewhat quickly but left lots of lace on the sides of my pint glass.
Pine sap and citrus fruits are in the nose, along with a little bit of bready malt scent.
A big hop attack hits the tastebud beachhead, with lots of citrusy sweetness and tartness. Right after that, a nearly equal amount of bitterness kicks in, providing a pleasant balance and keeping things from drifting off to fruity kool-aid land. The malts are very subordinate, riding quietly along in the background. The finish is pleasingly dry.
Medium bodied, with an oily and resiny mouthfeel.
I quite like this beer and welcome it’s arrival in the local beer scene. I can see myself either regularly drinking this at one of my locals or stopping in for a pint or a growler at the brewery. Unfortunately, it will not be brewed again until the fall, but their regular IPA and their pale ale are quite tasty too, so I’ll survive until then.
Serving type: growler
