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.

On draft, served in a pint glass. Pours a medium golden straw body, one finger white head, short retention, bit of lacing. Smell is citrus, a bit of grapefruit, caramel and straw, a bit of pine on the backend. Flavour follows; standard mild grapefruit and pine IPA, slightly resinous finish, lighter carbonation and body, nothing too special although an approachable west coast-style IPA.

16oz can served in a pint glass. Canned on 12/06/17.

Pours a slightly hazy golden with a big head and lots of carbonation. Smell is grapefruit and cut greens.

Taste is old hops. This doesn't taste like a six week old IPA. Makes me second guess the year in the canned on date -- it's smudged. Aside from the old hop flavor, there's hay and a little floweriness.

Mouthfeel is nice -- good texture. Moderately light, moderately carbonated, not too heavy, not too light. Overall...I feel a little upset about the taste of this beer. I want to try it again with a can with a clearly legible date.
