Notes: When you have an insatiable desire for a tasty ale; when you literally want to chew the top off a bottle of beer to get to the contents, that’s a Beer Wolf. This IPA is resinous, without the syrupy sweetness you might expect. A touch of grapefruit rounds out this big IPA. This beer replaces Iron Horse IPA in both branding and flavor. It will be available year round in draught and bottle.

Malt: crystal for balance
Hops: comet, centennial, chinook
Other: pairs with regret and diamonds

Darkish amber with a decent pile of foam in the Wander Brewing snifter. Adequate carbonation in the mouth. A little oily on the tongue. Old grapefruit aroma. Some sweet malt. Current version lists just the Comet and Centennial hops and "pairs with nostalgia & animal instinct."

The first sip yields a kind of an alarming spoiled fruit taste. It gets a little better after some sipping as the grapefruit takes over. Unpleasant bitter aftertaste. Wolf sweat? From the 22 oz bottle purchased at The Market in Anacortes.

Bomber from Albertsons. Pours out a cloudy dark amber with thick creamy head . Aroma and taste favor the malts, fark and bready, sea salt caramel. Minor hops bite, a but metallic. Something’s stimulating the salivary glands....More of the English style
