Bellwoods Witchshark

Brewery: Bellwoods Brewery
Country: Canada
ABV: 9%
Style: American Double IPA

Brewer Description: (from website) Named after the elusive creature with the head of a shark and the body of a boy that first swooped in on a broom during construction of the brew pub, this imperial IPA can elevate a bad day to good. The Witchshark is shy and mischievous, but once you let him into your heart you’ll see why this intense brew is such a popular one.

Intro: A 500ml bottle with no bottled on or best before date. Poured into a Holy Mountain tulip glass.
Appearance: A lightly hazy golden colour with a two finger white head that had good retention and left nice lacing.
Aroma: Tropical mango, peach and pine with a herbal element.
Taste: Bitter, earthy, dank, pine, herbal, peppery with only hints of pineapple.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Not as juicy as I expected based on the nice aromas. It was still good to drink, but I definitely preferred the aroma.
