First off, I love wolves. They are bad ass, predatory animals. So, for this review, I will hold the beer up against its mighty name.
Pours a cloudy orange with a fluffy white head that lingers and laces. This does not look like a wolf at all, more like some kind of fox or orange cat...I'm suspicious. I was expecting it to be grey or white maybe.
Smells of grapefruit, vegetal, cascade hops a slight stone fruit backing. No festering wolf stench or winds from the (unsilent) northern abyss.
Taste is sweet with grapefruit up front that goes into a more stone fruit, slight pine, some spice, some chinook character middle before ending on a bitter yet smooth and pleasant fruity hop note. Pretty good flavor here, a bit traditional almost, not meaty...no notes of snow-laden fur.
Medium body with medium carbonation, alcohol well hidden, like a sneaking animal of death, finally an agreeable match.
More interesting hop notes come forward as the beer warms...a good DIPA to be sure, really smooth and grapefruity. Not as predatory or grim as expected but it will do.

Appearance - great yellow/ orange color to this beer. Not sure if transportation ruined the carbonation, but very little head here.
Smell - fresh and very floral. WOW lots of piney hop smell to this one.
Taste - Smooth up front, but with this great bitter taste to show the DIPA.
Mouthfeel - very smooth to drink and finishes quite well. Even though there was not a lot of head this still went down very nicely.
Overall - Very well balanced for a DIPA and a fun beer I am happy to have tried. I would try to get this beer again once I am back in the Midwest.
