Here you go hopheads – we brewed this one just for you!! 55+ pounds of hops, lots of honey and a little citrus just for some added kick. Golden in color with a nice rounded malt middle, ending with a huge punch of hop bitterness.

22 oz. bottle from Kroger #401 My first sampling of Wild Wolf Brewing Co.
" 55+ pounds of hops, lots of local honey and a little citrus just for some added kick"

Straw yellow to orange depending on the background. Crystal clear with carbonation bubbles initially adhering to the side of the glass as well as rising from the center. 4 finger white head form a hard pour that recedes leaving moderate but attractive lacing.

Aroma is redolent of fresh citric and herbal hops upfront. Later more of a fully ripe citrus quality with a bit of orange rind. A hint of sweet malt.

Sweet malt backbone with citrus peel and pleasantly bitter hops to round it out. Quite a unique flavor in my experience. Well done Wild Wolf!!

Medium full in body. Creamy in feel but for the peppery carbonation. Light sticky syrup from the honey and malts. A bit drying on the tongue with warming alcohol in the throat.

An awesome beer! Great appearance, and full in aroma and taste. This beer has a lot of character, and I will be trying it again.

Pours a dark orange color with about a half finger of white head, dissipates quickly with a little lacing left behind. Smells sweet, some tropical fruits, a little honey. Sweet is the first thing I notice, very sweet and malty, a little pine on the finish. Caramel seems to be the most prominent flavor. A little bitterness throughout and lingering afterwards. Feel is nice, medium body beer that leaves only a little lingering afterwards. It's a little too sweet for my liking, at least too much on the caramel flavor which seems to wash out much of the other flavors. Certainly not a bad beer though.

Drinking it from a bottle. Had it on draft as well for comparisons sake.

a- Very nice golden color, pours about a finger length of head.
s - Bready, minor citrus, a little sweetness. Not much going on here.
t - malty on the front end, loads of hops on the back end.. Pine pine pine!
m - Feel the burn
o- I like the effort. This is definitely a hop head's delight and i'm glad the honey they used didn't kill the hops completely. Forget about balance, I got smacked in the mouth with hops! The draft version of this I could taste the alcohol but the bottle is smoother for sure.

Poured from a bomber into a shaker pint, the beer is a turbid, muddled, pale, orange-copper coloring with a filmy, low profile, clingy, off-white head. Large amount of carbonation in the body. Aromas of tropical fruit and rich honey forward, heavy on pineapple, with a solid toffee and caramel backbone, and a subtle hop aroma providing bitterness and peppery notes. Flavors are bitter forward, heavy on resinous pine pitch, followed immediately by a blast of malty notes, included heavily roasted toffee and caramel. Rich, raw honey notes, with a solid dose of tropical fruit notes, including pineapple, mango, and grapefruit. The fruit characters are very sweet, and the grapefruit in particular borers on astringent. The palate is out of balance. The beer's body is big, bold, and with a dry, crisp edge from all of the carbonation. Muddled, out of balance aftertaste, with notes of honey and caramel being through together with very tart and acidic grapefruit notes. Overly sweet throughout. The finish is tart, sweet, and astringent. This one was not for me, that's for sure.

Poured a golden orange body with two finger head and lace. Aroma contains strong notes of pine and citric hops with minimal malts. Dry, piney, earthy hop taste in a medium body that is kept in check from overpowering beer by a sticky caramel, possible toffee malt sweetness. The malts give the beer a slightly sticky feel at times and give this overly hopped beer a sweet finish. I like this beer and what it's trying to do but wish the hops were toned down a little so that hops and malts meshed more.
