Notes / Commercial Description:
Wolf Picker is named in honor of our hop growing community and the harvesting rig they use. Each year, the brew is crafted with same malt base but with new and unique varieties of hops. Some of the varieties are so new, they’re not even named yet. Wolf Picker 2016 features the experimental HBC 438 and Cashmere hops. These two offer a complex and layered hop character that combine hints of coconut, papaya and mango with a mild herbal quality.

Pours a slightly rusty golden yellow.

Slightly tropical/citrus fruit notes, but also rather getting spicy/herbal notes.

An interesting mesh of spice, herbs, and slight tropical fruit notes.

Medium-bodied, medium carbonation, crisp.

Overall, nothing to write home about but certainly drinkable!

From 16 ounce Prowler bought at Liquor Shed.

It pours a brilliantly clear medium gold, over an inch of foam, good lacing brew.

Smells really dank for an APA, onions, tropical fruit.

Hoppy taste, tropical fruit notes, though mild, grassy, piney, for me, it's a bit like a session Ipa with a tad more complexity.

Light end of medium bodied, just right carbonation, it's enjoyable to my palate but I would pass on drinking it again cuz there's so many tasty APA's I would reach for before this.

Clear, light gold body with a billowy, sculpted, white head. Fantastic floral and pine resin aroma; notes of citrus, too. Delicate light malt flavors; biscuit and cracker; well-balanced hop bitterness; light touch of watermelon. Medium-light body; a tad weak; very clean; crisp and primarily dry overall.

This is a most exquisite APA. It delivers and all-around light and delicate quality while still packing some fine flavors and hop bitterness. A very fine offering.

Appearance: A medium golden with about 1/2” white head.

Smell: Grapefruit with a hint of pine.

Taste: Nice balance of grapefruit with the strata hops (2018).

Feel: Carbonation seems a little light.

Overall: I really like this beer but it needs just a little more carbonation.

2017 vintage brewed with HBC 638 hops. Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a 12 oz bottle on May 28, 2017. Best enjoyed by 6/6/17. The smell and taste is hints of mango and peach. The feel is clean and smooth. Recommended.

Picked up a single from Black Canyon Brewing Supplies 1-29-17 for $1.99. Best by 4-12-17 but been in cold storage since purchase.

Beer poured golden with a beautiful white head that is leaving lacing.

Nose is lightly tropical and stone fruits.

Taste is very well balanced between the pale and caramel malt base and the mango hops.

Mouthfeel is crisp and clean, very refreshing.

Overall a solid pale ale executed perfectly to the style guides.

Slightly hazy with tiny particulates.
Lighter amber. Short lived white head.
Aroma is sweet and full of tropical fruit.
Taste follows the aroma with sweet tropical notes from the hops. But bitterness is minimal and does not linger.
Mouthfeel is a bit thin, but expected for an APA. Lower than normal carbonation.
Solid APA with great profile.
