A-Pours a clear, yellow hue. A cloud of rounded white foam bends over the top of my glass. Head dies off slowly and leaves pocked lacing.

S-Aroma is a bit hempy, vegetal and even catty. There is also a noticeable dose of zesty citrus. Lighter tropical fruit hops as well. A crisp graininess and some cracker. The hop aroma is unique.

T-The flavor also displays that veggie-ness. I personally really dig it. Bright clementine juice as well. Finishes grassy, piney, lightly oniony with a grainy finish. Pale maltiness makes me think of animal crackers.

M-Lighter side of medium bodied. Crisp and quite bitter. Lingering aftertaste. I found it to be very drinkable and even a bit refreshing.

O-Shewolf is one feisty beer. I am quickly understanding why Three Floyds' and Half Acre beers are always a hot commodity. Kick ass.

Bright yellow orange with an off-white crown.

Notes of piney hops and caramel float welcoming to the nose.

Slightly grainy with the bitterness taking a side seat to more caramel and some light fruits. Smooth going down with a touch of orange peel in the very back.

Not as flavorful as I would prefer, but a well-crafted brew that pays attention to balance and has just enough punch to keep me in the ring until the end.
