Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: ericj551 on 09-29-2012

Humulus Lupulus, wolf vine, or more commonly, the hop plant, shares with its namesake a rather interesting trait: after a decidedly unthreatening beginning to life, upon maturity each species stakes their claim. And with neither mercy nor conscience, will tirelessly strive for, and usually achieve, total territorial domination.

A: Clear copper.
S: Mushroom. Not an aroma I find desirable in a beer. I keep putting it down and smelling it again, hoping it'll change, but it doesn't.
T: As bad as it smells, or maybe worse. Drainpour.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance. Pours a clear, almost glowing amber with a finger of off white head, average retention.

Smell. Nice floral hops, some toasted caramel malts, pineapple, pine, citrus fruits and peaches. A little alcohol.

Taste. Lightly sweet caramel malts and some nice citrusy floral hops. Starts sweet, ends with a little bitterness. I like that.

Mouthfeel. Below medium body with medium-low carboantion.

Overall. A fine pale ale. More interesting than most, with some nice fresh tasting hops.

A: copper, translucent
S: nothing but fresh hops! Intense. Pine.
T: fresh hops and some sweet malt. Light and fresh tasting. Very little bitterness. Almost like a session PA. The finish gets a little messy with the soft hops and sweet caramel maltiness. Would be a good summer beer.
M: light bodied, medium carbonation.
O: a pleasant beer that I would certainly buy in the spring/summer. Wish it had a cleaner finish.

A: Has that copper hue of a pale ale. Nothing to write home about but it is what it is! The somewhat dense head stuck around pretty well.

S: The floral hops are there, though they're muted by the malts.

T: Some caramel creaminess combined with crisp, slightly citrus/melon hops. Orange, lemon, and something fresh but slightly tart? Also just kind of leafy - not really earthy but has a green leaf quality. If I said fresh it would just sound like the marketing got to me... but it tastes fresh.

M: Crisp and lightly creamy.

Overall I'm pretty into it, pale ales are a little tougher to make exciting compared to more intrinsically interesting styles but I think this is a very noteworthy example. The base recipe is really good and the fresh hops undoubtedly step it up another notch.

Serving: 650 mL bottle poured into a 0.3 L tulip glass.

Appearance: Clear, bright brownish amber color. Billowing off white head recedes gradually with good lacing.

Smell: Fresh, spicy, pine and resinous hops, as well as toasty malt.

Taste: Nice malty body, definite caramel and slight roasted notes. Hops bring citrus fruit and herbs as well as very restrained bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body and moderate to low carbonation.

Overall: A nicely malty pale ale with plenty of fresh hop character while still restrained and very drinkable.

A: Copper-bronze with an off-with head, good retention, leaves a little lace.

S: Nice hop aroma, with the immistakable wet cascade.

T: The wet hops are upfront, but not overbearing. The wet cascade has more of a jalapeno/green pepper flavour than citrus, but there's some underying floral & citrus here as well. Quality malt is nice and biscuity without being too sweet.

M: Well-attenuated, moderate body has a crisp finish.

O: Are really excellent pale ale that's enhanced by the wet hops.

Wolf Pine pours a light amber with a nice sense head. The aroma is floral and fruity, with some nice citrusy notes that come out with a swirl. The flavor is a wonderfully balanced pale ale with a nice caramel sweetness that plays perfectly into the fresh, lively citrusy hops. Some fruitiness from the yeast fits in well with the light malt, and there is just enough bitterness in the finish. Drink it while the hops are fresh!

Fresh and yummy , this is a pale ale that grows as it warms up. The hops spread in flavour and nose and the beer builds in complexity. Not a toned down IPA but a PA that is true to the style but maxed out with fresh hops . Hoyne is a brewery to watch.

A: Very minimal white head over deep amber liquid with excellent clarity.

S: Flowers and metal.

T: Rich malt backbone with munich and caramel along with floral and citrusy hops.

M: Medium viscosity and a very minimal amount of carbonation.

O: With more carbonation and a better aroma, this would be a near flawless pale ale.
