Brewery: Bellwoods Brewery
Style: American IPA
Other Notes: DDH IPA w/ Simcoe & Mosaic Lupulin Powder
Brewer Description: (from website & menu) A pale malt bill with a healthy addition of oats, this beer received a massive dry hop addition of Mosaic and Simcoe lupulin powder. A proprietary hop product, lupulin powder is a concentrated hop powder that contains all he acids and oils from a hop cone that you want without the excess vegetal matter that you don’t. Strong aromas and flavours of blueberry, Mandarin orange and peaches lead into a soft, round mouthfeel with a pleasantly dry finish.

Aroma: Tropical mango, peach, yoghurt-y with hints of mandarin orange on the finish.
Taste: Juicy mango, peach, apricot and mandarin. Only lightly bitter.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with moderate to low carbonation.
Overall: Very nice, juicy and so easy to drink.
