my first experience with the latest canned offering from golden road, and i'm still in the weeds as it was. there are qualities i like about this brew, and i certaintainly enjoy some of the folks that work at the tasting room. i'm not totally sold on this as an outstanding representation of the style. pours a hazy orange from the can to pint, but has very little carbonation. i like some of the fruity, floral notes from the hop blend, but it seems to be lacking in the citrus dept. malts start to come through across the palate, offering significant sweetness to the blend; i find this abundance of caramel a bit overpowering for a west coast ipa. finishes with a duel between the malts and some dryness on the very back end. the texture is creamy, and the low carbonation is a turn off to me, personally.

in the end the beer feels a bit sticky for an ipa, even as a double.

So apparently I like this waaay more than everyone else

A- Pours light honey hazy, two finger head with low retention. White clouds for the head.

S- I am getting a bouquet of citrus. Lemons, grapefruit, nice fluffy hop profile, my kind of malt (minimal)

T- This is a real nice IPA, light and fluffy (sorry). Citrus from above fruit.

M- Great M being creamy, perfect amount of carb.

O- I would gladly, gladly drink this again!!!!

Poured 16 oz. can into Golden Road pint glass.

A: A brilliant golden orange, that's mostly opaque. There's nothing in terms of head at all.

S: In-your-face hop scents permeate from this one the second you pour and it just continues as you drink. Also possesses some great citrus-y notes -- pineapple, in particular.

T: Delivers on the aromas you get up front -- every sip is a burst of hops and citrus that make it incredibly refreshing.

M: Crisp and clean finish with a moderate amount of carbonation. Despite all the hops, it doesn't feel heavy at all.

O: Wolf Among Weeds has become one of my favorite DIPAs over time. When fresh, it's a relatively light, enjoyable drinking experience that has you craving more. In my opinion, it's the best Golden Road has to offer and a great starting point for those trying them out (or coming back into the fold).
