Poured a beautiful mahogany with a creamy half inch of foam that never fully subsided. Smell was, obviously, of spicy hops, and the taste wasn't much different. Hops abound, with pine and grapefruit undertones. Not a bad brew at all. However, this beer seems to think it's a really hoppy brew, but it's not. Maybe an IPA, and not even a Double at that, and certainly not a barleywine. It's for this reason that I didn't give the smell and taste a 4.5. Regardless of what category it technically falls under, though, this is a very enjoyable beer. Something I'd certainly have again.
Looking at the other reviews, maybe I'm being a bit too harsh, but if a beer claims to be "screaming with hops", it's gotta deliver. The competition between hoppy beers is fierce, and Wailing Wench just doesn't cut it when compared to other offerings like Double Bastard and Old Ruffian. To a hophead like me, this was pretty weak.

Dark reddish amber pour, thick finger of tan head, crazy wallpaper lace. Fades to an island and ring pretty quick with the lace dripping oily legs. Nice.
Lemony citrus and caramel, hints of herbal bitter in a light/medium strength aroma.
Simple taste just like the nose, but with some spicy alcohol in there too. Light strength taste, simple and balanced. A little different bitter in the end of sip than I am used to tasting. Kinda nice, but not great.
Worst feature of this beer. Low carb., low viscosity, ho hum finish, and not the cleanest linger either.
Thought this would be a better beer than it is, still not horrible, and one that is sure to taste good with some morels and bacon grilled cheese.
