Nose Goblin from Ghost Town Brewing in Oakland, CA is their infamous West Coast-style Imperial IPA with big honking notes of white grapes, melons, berries, and uncouth levels of dankness. This dangerously smooth double IPA is all about the hops with very little malt character. Almost exclusively comprised of Pilsner with just a dash if acidulated malt, Nose Goblin is a beautiful clear straw color in the glass. Your nose if free to pick up all of the incredible flavor and aroma contributed from ample whirlpool and dry hop additions.
Ghost Town Brewing's Nose Goblin took Gold at the 2021 Great American Beer Festival, besting 170 other beers submitted in the Imperial IPA category. Although Ghost Town will switch up the hops on every edition of Nose Goblin, this kit is modeled after the same recipe that took 1st at GABF, featuring additions of Nelson, Strata, and Mosaic® CRYO HOPS®.

Liquid Malt Extract (LME) vs. Dried Malt Extract (DME)
MoreBeer! recipe kits are offered in both Liquid Malt Extract and Dry Malt Extract so that our customers can choose the format that best suits their needs and brewing style. LME is a viscous liquid, similar in consistency to maple syrup. In addition to being the more affordable option, many brewers find LME easier to handle than dry extract. DME is more condensed and comes in a powder format that is similar to baking flour. Although it’s a little more costly, DME is naturally lighter in color and stays fresher for longer. We highly recommend DME when brewing light colored beers.
