2.9/5  rDev -25.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Bought some can's straight from the brewery. It poured a golden red brown with a nice head that left some nice lacing.

Smells of a fresh cut hay field mixed with toffee.

Taste is interesting, I get a little fresh cut hay field with a majority of it being toffee and sweetness. I do get a lot of the hops in there which add a lot of piney sweetness.

The mouthfeel is pretty good, it is a higher percentage so I would expect it to be a sipper and the syrupy feeling helps with that.

Overall, I'm just not as impressed. There are some flaws I can taste right away. It's just that feeling you get when you know something is just not right. I feel bad, because it's not a bad beer, it's just trying to stand out in a market that has soo many great ones.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

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).
