"Wolf Among Weeds" is a complex and refreshing IPA above "Point the Way IPA" that in my opinion Golden Road has established as a "go to" IPA. "Wolf" offers a silky after taste that allows a "tingle" pressing your tongue against the roof of your mouth. Head disappears quickly, but effervescence continues gently during the evaluation of the brew in a full size glass. Very satisfying. Golden color. Personally, I need a citrus smell and a "weed" odor with my IPA. "Wolf" delivers and is most satisfying. I sincerely hope that finally there is an IPA that can deliver the most unique hops that won't be too seasonal or be too expensive for the average consumer.

Big bright golden body pours into a nonic pint with no problems. Head is off white layered and luscious forms nicely above the glowing golden body. Aroma hops explode on the nares what a great smell, herbaceous herbal, citric hops, with big juicy ripened pineapple. Flavor full of juicy resinous hops, citrus peel, pineapple juice, even mango with tropical fruit. This is something else really drinkable with incredible hop notes, nothing like this exists on the east coast. Mouthfeel is oily and resinous bringing the dank hop oils with the tropical fruit to soften the blow of the hop bitterness, a bit of alcohol warmth but nothing that is too hot for the palate to enjoy this fine creation. Overall, I'm a huge fan of this beer since my first sip yesterday during a sampling session with wvsabbath to this full pint glass full of all the west coast hop glory.
