The wolf inside this pale ale is trying to walk upright. This bright and aromatic beer was brewed with our friends in the band Pig Destroyer.

Bomber into a FFF teku. The brew appearsa hazed copper color with a yellowish stained froth. 3 fingers atop fade leaving a spotty lace pattern on the glass. More than a finger remains throughout the duration.

The aroma includes pine and a toasty to burnt malt character. A bit of fruit, grass and alcohol. Sone orange rind is also present before the onset of something more dank and herbal feeling.

The taste is mutualky dank and piney. A bit of biscuit to burnt grain character overtop solvent alcohol and minor fruity tinges. It is quite resinous and pine-like with plenty of herbal clingy bitterness.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. It is a big boozy brew but isnt too over the top. I would drink this again and I am very thankful to the Richmond BA crew who sent this my way.

Pours a cloudy orange amber color with a 1 finger off white head that retains nicely.

Smells like a lot of citrus and floral hops. Nice potent orange and grapfeuit notes before it finishs with floral hops and a slight malt bite. A fair amount of piney hops come out as it warms.

Starts off with lots of bitterness followed closly by a big rich malt body and finishes with a hoppy presence similar to that to the floral hop aroma.

There is a nice thick rich feel to this beer. Carbonation is good and the thick feel compliments the rich body nicely.

Overall this is a great pale ale. Aromas are great and a lot of delicious malt pulls through the body of this beer which is balanced great with the large bitter and floral hop notes.
