One of the more interesting collaborations of 2012 saw Goat team up with their mates at Seven Seeds to deliver a coffee IPA that was subtler than one would expect. Instead of using the coffee to add a roasty character, the beans were very gently roasted to instead impart fruity perfume that complimented the hops in the beer. It's back for 2012 with a tweaked recipe. According to head brewer Dave Bonighton: "This year we've used the Nicaraguan Finca Jaime Molina Montecristo bean. This is a coffee that displays cherry, citrus and cocoa - perfect for an IPA. We've matched lightly roasted coffee with fruity, new world hops - Motueka from NZ and Galaxy from Tasmania."
