In this beer blog, we are going to get into a new brew from Capital Brewery and it is their Mutiny IPA. Capital Brewery started in 1984 by Ed Janus in Middleton, Wisconsin. This brewery is based on the on German brewing styles, however, they have moved into non tradition German Styles like this India Pale Ale, pale ale, and wheat ale. This brewery is trying to do different things with hops in their IPA to give series of hoppy beers to beer market. They are best known for their seasonals and their two different Doppelbock, which are Blonde Doppelbock in the spring time and Autumnal Fire in the fall time. Let us get into this new brew.
It has a clear golden color to a slight copper tone without a head on the beer. The smell is of a mango. The taste is mango but bitterest is over bearing. The aftertaste is hoppy finish. It is drinkable.
Here is a description from their website (www.capital-brewery.com):
Mutiny IPACapital’s first India Pale Ale has a bright amber hue with an upfront florally citrus hop aroma. Mutiny packs a punch yet remains remarkably drinkable. It’s time for a MUTINY from one of Wisconsin’s largest independent craft breweries.OG – 16.2%
IBU – 70
ABV – 6.2%

Ending, I will have to say that I am very impressed with this brew. Capital has done a great job finally on one of their everyday beers. I have talked to several of my craft beer drinker friends and we agreed that their everyday beers are not very good. They are average to below average. I am happy that this brewery is taking steps to improve themselves on their everyday beers. We did agree that their seasonals were extremely good. I am a huge fan of their Blonde Doppelbock and Autumnal Fire. This India Pale Ale is well-balanced between the hops and malt. I recommend you trying this beer and give me your thoughts on it. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
