3.5/5  rDev -9.1%

If the ABV were lower, and a little more floral, this would be a great session. Its simple enough as to not overpower the senses, and tasty enough, light and crisp enough to make for an easy drinking brew.
Its pretty one dimensional, but its crisp, light and moderately carbonated.

Fernie Brewing 'Lone Wolf IPA' @ 6.5% , served from a 650 ml bottle purchased for $5

A-pour is a light gold from the bottle to a clear amber in the glass with a small off white head leaving a streaky lace along the pint

S-piney

T-weak tasting PNW IPA , no big hop bomb or deep brooding malt base , somewhat smooth , with a slight pine resin on the swallow

MF-mild carbonation , feels like a medium body

Ov-ok beer , somewhat dissapointing IPA

650 ml bottle available at the BC Liquor Store.

A: Two fingers of bubbly head, dissipating leaving white film with holes where the bubbles were, up the sides of the glass. Visible carbonation. Clear light copper.

S: Yeast, pine. I'm not really picking up any floral, citrus or tropical fruits.

T: Pine. No overpowering hop flavours.

F: Clean.

O: Not at all bad, but I'd like more depth. This beer is certainly very drinkable. Although I wouldn't go out of my way to find it, I wouldn't turn it down.

Had a pair of 650 mL bottles.

Pours with delicious looking creamy beige head. The body is clear (maybe a slight haze) with a tawny-copper color. It has a aroma of cider and reminiscent of fall, forest leaves. The taste is strongly bitter and it has a heavy body with good carbonation.

Overall, this is a classic and strong IPA. I like it a lot; one of the best IPAs I've ever had.

Props to joemcgrath27 for another cross Canada treat...

A - Pours a slightly hazy golden orange colour, thumb of fluffy hea wit solid retention and some nice spotty lacing.

S - Scent is dominated musty earthy cedar hops, hints of lemon rind and a metallic caramel finish.

T - Much like the nose with a solid dose of bitter earthy cedar and pine hops, a sugary caramel malt balances it out and a citrus rind bitterness lingers.

M - Medium bodied, smooth and a touch of dryness.

O - Light, crisp and flavourful. This is an easy drinking IPA that hits the basics of the style and is easily sessioned. A great tasting brew!
