From notes. Tasted in mid-August 2010 from a bomber bottle purchased at the brewery. Pours hazy pale yellow with a thick, foamy white head that has great retention. The nose is very complex with floral, resinous, citrus, and tropical fruit (mango, papaya, and pineapple) hops. There is also much more of a caramelly malt aroma than I expected given the very light color of the beer. Flavor is very hoppy with the grapefruit and tropical notes coming through nicely. Once again, the malts come through as very carameled. The body is medium with a average carbonation and a long bitter finish. This beer is quite nice with great complexity and nice balance.

A-Pours a clear, yellow hue. A cloud of rounded white foam bends over the top of my glass. Head dies off slowly and leaves pocked lacing.

S-Aroma is a bit hempy, vegetal and even catty. There is also a noticeable dose of zesty citrus. Lighter tropical fruit hops as well. A crisp graininess and some cracker. The hop aroma is unique.

T-The flavor also displays that veggie-ness. I personally really dig it. Bright clementine juice as well. Finishes grassy, piney, lightly oniony with a grainy finish. Pale maltiness makes me think of animal crackers.

M-Lighter side of medium bodied. Crisp and quite bitter. Lingering aftertaste. I found it to be very drinkable and even a bit refreshing.

O-Shewolf is one feisty beer. I am quickly understanding why Three Floyds' and Half Acre beers are always a hot commodity. Kick ass.

Bright yellow orange with an off-white crown.

Notes of piney hops and caramel float welcoming to the nose.

Slightly grainy with the bitterness taking a side seat to more caramel and some light fruits. Smooth going down with a touch of orange peel in the very back.

Not as flavorful as I would prefer, but a well-crafted brew that pays attention to balance and has just enough punch to keep me in the ring until the end.
