COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
After many a request, plea, rally and occasional riot, Fernie Brewing has succumbed to the needs of the people. May we present to you our Lone Wolf IPA. A new 650ml product, this IPA has four select malts in combination with four classic hop varieties & time honored traditional brewing methods including dry hopping, resulting in a golden ale with exceptional flavour & complexity. A true IPA in every sense.

Yeah fiulijn has summed up perfectly how I feel about this beer. Definitely an American style but no outstanding hop characteristics other than the usual citrus, no resins, a definite "by the book" IPA that’s not off in any way but has nothing new to offer. Glad I tried it, though.

Bottle to tulip. Pour a nice somewhat hazy amber with half a finger of head, which seems disinclined to dissipate in any hurry. Aroma is of a very nicely hopped IPA; citrus and resin, though it seems to disappear after a few moments. Taste is hoppy as promised, bitter grapefruit, pine, mandarin, a bit of sweet malt on the back end though not enough to really balance it out. Fairly rich mouthfeel, carbonation is excellent and creamy. A pretty good IPA in my opinion, hopheads especially would like it though others who favour a bit more balance might find it too dry. I am one of the latter, but I am enjoying it well enough this once, so I’d say give it a shot no matter what camp you are in.

Aroma is doughy, with citrus hops maybe a hint of pine. Taste is rich amber and caramel malt rounded with grapefruit hops. There’s a bit of orange peel in there, a touch of resin or pine. Nice bitterness to end, hits the tip of the tongue nice. medium bodied. I really like this beer. It is very classic for a IPA, nothing special but still very good. Yum.

Bottle from Central City Liquor Store, Surrey
Hazy light amber color. Mild aroma, some cereals, light malt. Pleasant flavor of grainy malts; it has a correct bitterness, not much vibe from the hops too.
Not a modern IPA, it could be a traditional one.

UPDATED: AUG 4, 2012 From a 650 ml bottle, into a large stemmed glass. Decent head, but fast disappearing. A nice medium amber color with hops on the nose. Hops and malts on the tongue. Very pleasant and well balanced. Not world class perhaps, but I could drink a lot of this stuff.

Pours honey brown with thick white head good lacing. Aroma is citrus and pine hops. Smells sweet. First sip is creamy citrus fruit and very smooth. Very little bitter or booze. Aftertaste is sweet hop juice. Much like hop stoopid Very tastey and very easy to drink. Bravo. Lots of creaminess.

Unclear yellow orange,frothy off white head settles and lingers. Mild orange citrus hop aroma. Pleasant pine and orange citrus hop taste, backed by a light caramel maltiness. Average carbonation, light bodied, lightly hopped. Light bitter finish. IPA Light makes it LF (Lagerboy Friendly)

Single bottle purchased from Willow Park Wine & Spirits in Calgary, AB on 06/22/2012. Colour: Light yellow with light orange and low white head. Nose: Hops are wrapped in a malt blanket of cooked fruit, bbq sauce, and whisp of oak smoke. Taste: Medium sweet, medium bitter, medium sour. The 4 types of malt are quite present, as there is a lead player of caramel that mixes with the hops - but slightly too much which subdues the fine quench of a good hop smattering. A dry fruity finish which eventually leads to some bitterness. Original in its own sense, of which I appreciate.
