When pouring I was surprised at how it looked. Thought I got hosed and it was miller lite. But as soon as I went to take my first sip the smell of citrus punched me in the nose real quick and followed up with a little dank smell. The taste is strong and piney, but light for an 8% which is great. Easy drinker, great taste, and comparably priced. I'll be getting this one again for sure.

This is a true go-to ale for me. It’s big on everything I love about an IPA and although it’s technically an Imperial IPA, it drinks like a very strong single IPA.

Look: golden, yellow, glowing in the glass.

Smell: lemons, orange, apricots, creamsicle, piney/dank. A burst of West Coast fruity, bitter flavors. However, strangely all of these elements are muted and integrated and no single entity stands out. Truly a balanced but hoppy experience.

Taste: follows the nose with sweet, tingling juiciness upfront and a soft middle of the mouth followed by a dry but smooth bitter finish. Not overly sweet or malty like some (most) IIPAs.

Overall: this is one of the best IPAs out there and it uses a variety of hops to get this amazingly complex hop aroma and flavor. Truly a standout in my opinion and for about $11 a six pack for me here near LA, it’s truly a go-to.

Pale yellow color. Lighter than I thought for an imperial IPA. Nothing about it is overwhelming. Slight hoppy citrus flavor. Alcohol finish. It'll go down fast and smooth.

Had this on tap at Boston Burger Company. Very pale amber color. Smelled like grass or fresh cut hay. You can taste the hops making it a too Earthy for me. The mouth feel is pretty good but leans toward the thin side. Overall, I'm just not as impressed. There are some flaws I can taste right away. It's just that feeling you get when you know something is just not right. I feel bad, because it's not a bad beer, it's just trying to stand out in a market that has so many great ones.

Look: It pours yellow-gold with a moderately low amount of haze. It has a slightly off white head with moderate head retention.

Smell: There are plenty of citrus aromas. There are stone fruit notes and a low level of pineapple.

Taste: It has hoppy flavors of stone fruit and pineapple with floral.

Feel: It has a moderate body that is creamy. The bitterness is moderate with a slightly sharp finish.

Overall, a fairly decent combinations of hops with the malt being barely noticable.

Wolf Among Weeds, Golden Road Brewing, 8% ABV.
Look: hazey golden, white head, good carbonation, some lacing
Smell: citrus, pine, floral
Taste: citrus, pine, floral
Feel: light, but feels like there is alot going on here
I had this on tap at house of 1000 beers in New Kensington. There cetainly was alot of different flavors going on here. The floral aspects of it were really nice. As others have mentioned the alcohol was well hidden for an 8 percenter. Yah, it was just a nice refreshing beer and you noticed the other flavors more than the booze which is nice. I would certainly have it again if given the chance.
