A: Light, golden straw pale color with a thick white head and minimal retention. Looks like Alpine's Nelson.

S: Nose is really nice. Very clean, fresh lemon, lemon peel, some exotic tropical fruits, dry spice and resin. I'm thinking centennial and Nelson, but its columbus, simcoe, chinook and cascade.

T: Lemon, some grapefruit, a bit of pine, chewy/earthy resin, bitter/spice in the back end from the hops and the rye. Not any caramel sweetness, which I really appreciate.

M: Light-Medium body, light-medium carbonation

O: A fantastic IPA. Kind of reminds me of Alpine's Nelson but not as much tropical fruit or as well polished (and no Nelson hops). There is a bit of lite beer urine funk the first few sips but then that disappears and your left with a very easy drinking, 8%, delicious, smooth, citrusy SoCal IPA. Highly recommended.

Served on tap in a tulip, I actually really liked this one. My nose perked up from this on as it was handed to me. I enjoyed ever sip of it

Really great double ipa. Very hoppy with very distinctive hop taste. Kind of like the Maximus ipa from lagunitas but lighter and crispier

Edit: pretty damn noticeable alcohol taste

Not for the faint of heart or whimpy. Strong pine and hops. Delicious.

"Wolf Among Weeds" is a complex and refreshing IPA above "Point the Way IPA" that in my opinion Golden Road has established as a "go to" IPA. "Wolf" offers a silky after taste that allows a "tingle" pressing your tongue against the roof of your mouth. Head disappears quickly, but effervescence continues gently during the evaluation of the brew in a full size glass. Very satisfying. Golden color. Personally, I need a citrus smell and a "weed" odor with my IPA. "Wolf" delivers and is most satisfying. I sincerely hope that finally there is an IPA that can deliver the most unique hops that won't be too seasonal or be too expensive for the average consumer.
