M is for Mountain Goats Minding Mail
Taranaki IPA was first brewed as a collaboration back in 2011. It’s evolved a fair bit over the years, but remains true to the original aim of creating a big, balanced, hoppy IPA that doesn’t dry out on you.
Truck-loads of our distinctive New Zealand hops are tempered by the generous malt cushion and influenced by the warming alcohol. The aroma and flavour resemble a tropical, citrus fruit salad with a big resinous finish.
The result is as tenacious and well balanced as a high-altitude, alpine mountain goat.
For the full effect of flavour and aroma don’t get it too cold. Try pairing with spicy chicken dishes.
