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.

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.

Oakes (12551) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 20, 2014
Darkish gold, not a very expressive nose, touch if berry. Fuller body, more malts than the pale, not a lot of hop character or bitterness, but the malts are actually really nice, with some good honeyish, biscuity character. Points off for not really being an IPA - not even by 1990s standards - but itís a good beer.

Lubiere (9999) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 22, 2014
A clear golden IPA with a thin white head. In aroma, sweet biscuit malt with light floral hops, smooth. In mouth, a nice biscuit malt with smooth floral hops, light citrus, nice. Bottle at OttBottleShare July 2014.

BeerandBlues2 (9685) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAY 7, 2013
Tap at Calgary International Beer Fest. Pours clear copper with a medium, frothy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is herbal and spicy hops, toast and cracker malt, and peach fruity esters. Flavor is toast malt, oxidized (paper), medium hops and bitterness, light fruity esters and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

DuffMan (6738) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 22, 2012
I would have called this "One Man Wolfpack"í, but thatís just me. Shared this one with Parksy, as usual. Nice orange amber, slightly hazy, with a medium off white head. Aroma is sweet with notes of guava and tangerine. Flavours are similar, with some slightly earthy undertones. Not very assertive in any direction really. A little thin in the malt department, and a little tame in the hops department. This beer isnít bad or offensive or poorly constructed, it just isnít very much of anything. An IPA thatís just okay for me.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - AUG 4, 2014
Draft at the brewery. Gold and bright, love the choices of hop and malt with pale malt and dry bitter hop profile with no estery hop and not a chewy PACNW IPA, itís actually pale and more British in character, yay! Another that the cans/bottles donít do it justice.

Borresteijn (4677) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 28, 2013
66cl Bottle, thanks H&T! Clear light-amber colour, off-white head. Aroma of caramel, malts, some floral hops, bit of resin, classical American IPA. Flavour is medium-sweet, malty, caramel, some resin and grass, light-bitter floral finish. Light-bodied. Decent, but boring IPA.

Caramel and honeyed malts are prominent in the lightly grainy nose along with floral and citrus hop notes. Clear, deep, orange-gold body is topped by a light, fine bubbled white head that recedes to the slightest cover with some scant lacing. Flavour follows the nose. Moderate bitterness offsets caramel malts with primarlily floral and lightly spicy hop flavours. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Fits well into the Fernie portfolio at the higher end of the hop spectrum. Snifter. Just above fridge temperature. Bottle purchased at the BCLS at Hellsgate in June 2012.

650ml bottle pours a bright golden color with a 2 finger white head which retains quite well and settles to leave a nice thin lattice on the glass. Aroma is light citrus hops with some light malts. Taste is grapefruit bitterness with an underlying light malty sweetness. A decent india pale ale that was about average for the style.

From a bomber shared. Pours a clear gold with an off white head. Light citrus nose. Flavors of spruce resin. Relatively thin mouthfeel. Bitter finish.
