Brewery: Bellwoods Brewery
Style: American Double IPA
Other Notes: DDH Imperial IPA w/ Lupulin Powder
Brewer Description: (from website & menu) A huge Imperial IPA with a simple pale malt bill and a hefty addition of flaked oats. Goblin Sauce is the first Imperial IPA we’ve brewed using Lupulin Powder, a proprietary hop product jam packed with all the good stuff… and we hit it twice for even more punchy aroma. Massive juicy aromas and flavours of peach, mango, cantaloupe and wild berries, a soft round body with very low bitterness and a relatively dry finish.

Intro: On tap at Bellwoods Brewery on Ossington, Toronto. A 16oz pour into a goblet glass.
Appearance: It was a cloudy orange colour with a thin white head that dissipated fairly quickly while leaving some lacing.
Aroma: Nice tropical peach, mango and cantaloupe.
Taste: Bitter-ish, peach and cantaloupe with hints of mixed berries.
Mouthfeel: Dry-ish, medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: It was easy to drink but taste was not as juicy as the aroma made it out to be.
