Eugene, Oregon – Eugene, Oregon-based Ninkasi Brewing teams up with Spokane Washington’s Iron Goat Brewing for a collaboration brew. Ninkasi’s founding brewer/owner Jamie Floyd flew into Spokane to brew with Iron Goat brewers Greg Brandt and Paul Edminster. Together the two Hop-Centric breweries put together Goat├Ârhead, a Triple IPA that clocked in at 10.2 ABV and 103 IBU’s.
It has hints of apricots and peaches from the loads of “Rock Star” hops Amarillo, Citra, Mosaic, and a new experimental hop from Roy farms ADHA881 that were used in the brew and dry hopping. The malt side solidly supports the copious amounts of hops at 10.2% with a smooth maltiness and a dry finish.
The Triple IPA has a very limited release and is only being sold in Washington and Idaho.
