Oh, you're a certified Cicerone? That's cool. After you drink this, you'll be a certified JuiceWolf. This one is seriously over the top, forever hazy with intense peachy and citrus notes that will wash over you like a waterfall of flavor.

Great balance of citrus and bitterness with an appealing appearance and great mouth feel. A superior offering in an overly flooded IPA market. Would routinely over pay for a pounder of Wrench every time.

By far, this beer is everything i look for in an IPA. I know there may be some who don’t agree but that’s just my taste.

Upon pour, this beer is a beautiful hazy orange. A powerful punch of hops and pine surge as you smell the enticing aroma. This beer is Dank, juicy, piney, sticky, pungent and beautifully balanced. Wrench is my go to at local craft spots or the beer store. As a manager of a bar only an hour away from the industrial arts brewery, I love having this beer on draft to recommend to my customers that love great local craft beer. Wrench is the holy grail of NEIPA’s!

I'm rating this for my wife, who is an IPA cognoscenti. She considers this beer to be "perfection", that there is no such thing as a NE IPA better than this (and I'm not much of an IPA person, but I'd agree with her on that). We get Wrench at the brewery, or from cans sold at the brewery. It has intense orange and grapefruit scents, and is not excessively bitter. When you open a can of this and put it on the counter in front of you the aromas waft up. That's a good test actually: when you open a can of your IPA and step back do you feel like you're in an orange grove, or in a pine forest?

It looks like a peach juice and it has a thin head.
Nice aroma with lots of stone fruits, pineapple, orange juice and mango.
Flavor with notes of stone fruits, oranges, spicy pine, white bread, lemon and resin. Dry and bitter aftertaste. Respectful 88 IBUs.
Medium body with appropriate carbonation.
Peachy and citrusy NEIPA with a pone resiny hop punch. Flavorful and not sissy.

Looks like a glass of grapefruit juice, very hazy, but not milkshakily so. Tropical citrus notes on the nose, the grapefruit flavor is dank when you take a gulp of this, and the mouthfeel is sharper than the style normally offers. Just a delight to drink, IMHO.

I received this beer from a recent BIF. I never heard of this brewery and the notes provided was hilarious. I do not think I am cicerone, but I am working towards that title. The label has an industrious look to it. I cracked open the can and an immense amount of citrus aroma emitted. The temperature of the beer is 46 degrees and served in a tulip glass. A gentle pour of the beer into the glass produced a two finger head. The frothy foam on the beer is white. The retention of the beer is fair and left no lacing on the glass. The color of the beer is SRM 6 a deep gold color with amber hues. The clarity of the beer is hazy.

The initial aroma of the beer is tropical, peach, oranges, lemons and floral. Additional aromas in the beer are toasted malts, yeast, and grass.

The flavors in the beer are tropical, peaches, mandarin oranges, lemon, floral, herbal, toasted malt, yeast, and hay.

The mouthfeel of the beer is juicy and crisp.

The body of the beer is medium, medium-high carbonation, and a medium finish.

More I dive into these NEIPA more I am perplexed. I am used to the WCIPA, the hops that deliver the punch of grapefruit and pine. I am drinking beer with that are dripping with juice. The beer is high-grade with a strong malt backbone. I would have loved to have seen a persistent head on the beer. Overall this is a drinkable beer and a must for NEIPA heads.

Love wrench. I don’t even wait for it to come off the pallet at work. I always hide a four pack bc it flies off the shelves.
