4.3/5  rDev +13.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A - Dark burnt orange with two fingers of frothy eggshell head with great retention and excellent splotchy lacing.

S - Strong rye bread smell, flour, stonefruit and honey.

T - Big bready taste, sour dough with some peach sweetness and a solid hop bitterness.

M - Creamy medium body with moderate carbonation and late bitter kick.

O - Nice balance of lovely flavours. I had this side by side with a fresh Bear Republic Hop Rod Rye and it compared very favourably, in fact in won the day for my money.

Love the adventurousness of these guys. While they obviously dig their hops, they still manage to change things up a bit.

Lovely bright copper color. Head is thick and fluffy. Medium carbonation gives good stability. Nice lacing to boot.

Aroma shows off both sides of the beer. Nice (without being overpowering) floral spicy and citrus hops tempt the nose. Behind that some sweet malt fills the gaps (was going to mention the spicyness as a quality of the rye, but could be hops as well).

I'll mention the rye first though it seems to impact the aftertaste the most. A drying spicy, almost like a light pepper, sensation seems to hang around letting you know there is something a bit different here. Bitterness is considerable but clears up quickly letting some residual sweetness and hop flavor shine before the rye finishes things off.

A really solid ipa. I like the way the beer comes together and everything really seems to match up well with other aspects.

This pours a cloudy dark amber with a generous white head.

Very aromatic hops. Lots of floral talc like notes with an assertive pine resin aroma in behind. Smells great.

Pine resin comes through on the palate but the malts kick in as well. Big malt body but nicely balanced bitterness.

Medium to full bodied.

Another great IPA from Goat.

Tap served into an Imperial Pint

A-Amber/White head with lingering lacing

S-Soft Hops smell, bread malts.

T-Strong sweet hops leaving a mild bitter finish, coupled with a smooth malty taste (wheat malt), with a clean nutty finish.

M-Medium body, easy to drink a couple if you wanted to.

O-Typical of what I've experienced at MG, the added flavors to traditional styles are very well balanced, and the rye and wheat in this beer are no different. Subtle characteristics help balance the hops and create a delightful beer.
