Hoppy and refreshing, Wolf Pup is our riff on a Session IPA. Highly drinkable with a wildly aromatic tropical and citrus character, it’s the perfect companion to keep on sippin’ for those long, sunny days.

Poured in a pint glass on draft and got a half inch white head that leaves some attractive streaks of lace behind.

Smell is herbal earthy hops, pine resin, Mellon, and some grapefruit rid.

Taste follows nice amount of earthy hops, some Mellon, pine, and a little grapefruit bitterness to round it out.

Mouthfeel is light and crisp, plenty of life, not dry, and drinks very easy but bigger flavor than 4.5% ABV.

Overall I would definetly revisit this, a very nice session IPA.

12 oz can, dated 1/4/18. Pours hazy dark yellow with a small fizzy white head that goes to a thin film and leaves little lacing.

The aroma is subdued - sweet straw malt and some fruit.

The flavor is sweet soapy straw malt with a little fruit and resiny floral hops. The mouthfeel is thin and pretty watery.

Overall, just OK.

Nice Golden color slightly hazy. Great flavor and not loosing any flavor due to reduced alcohol. Nice hoopy flavor and aroma without going overboard1

A: Pours a light yellow body. Little to no head, head is sudsy and goes quickly if you throw it hard.

S: Stone fruits, mango, melons, strawberries.

T: This is where the beer goes south for me. This tastes nothing like the nose. It's not bad, just extremely difficult to comprehend. It's like biting into an apple and tasting an orange, this throws off the senses. It's very malty, lemongrass, fresh lawn clippings.

F: Bready, malty, dry, thin, and overly carbonated.

O: This beer is okay, just not great. It duplicates all the problems that I've experienced with Wolf Among Weeds. The nose is heavenly; however, the body is completely contradictory. It's wonderful on tap and stays very true to the nose; however, in cans, it's always the same problem.

Bit sharp but still solid session better than most. Goes well at camp.
