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.

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.

Oakes (12234) - 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 it’s a good beer.

piscator34 (1949) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 27, 2014
Bottled sample. Gold in colour with fairly strong carbonation. Aromas are of pinecone, husky and caramel sweet malts, and a bit of floral hop. Light bodied with a grainy-caramel malt flavor profile. Some vague citrus notes are in play as well, but they’re pretty muted. Chunky bitterness. Not great overall.

northropfrye (2150) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 23, 2014
Light pale orange body with some off white head and lacing. Tropical fruit and resin aroma. Taste is fruity with some hoppy bitterness in the end. Not a bad IPA.

Lubiere (9790) - 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.

cards04 (1647) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 31, 2014
A pretty weak IPA. Pours golden with white head and decent lacing. Aromas are weak. A bit of tropical fruit... Flavors are flat and slightly bitter..not that great.

Another nice IPA, Not to bitter. Easy to drink. Nice to have a fairly local brewer doing some good stuff!

sulawang (601) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 24, 2014
Visual: Pours clear maple syrup orange/brown with minimal creamy head, thin layer of retention, some lacing, countless active streams. Nose: sweet malts with a bit of honey and brown sugar (lvl-5)-pungency Attack: sharp-crisp hoppy bittersweetness Mid-palate: cream-fizzy mouthfeel, (lvl-7)-malty sweetness, (MAIN) malts, brown sugar, honey, mild grapefruit Finish: subtle bitter-hopped attack, lingering brown sugar malted hopped finish. Summary: A rather softly hopped IPA and more on the sweet side. Drinkable and enjoyable, although it lacks some character.
