COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is a balanced showcase of the majestic hop specie, in Latin, Humulus Lupulus, which translates “Wolf Among Weeds”. It’s our celebration of California’s enthusiasm for hop-forward IPAs. At 8%, Wolf will sneak up on you from behind the robust citrus and dank earthy hop notes mirrored in its aroma and flavour profile.

Pale gold pour with a thick white head. Huge passionfruit aroma, pineapple and a little floral hit as well. Sweet, caramel, passionfruit, pineapple flavours with a nice passionfruit and citrus bitterness at the end. Good one.

16oz can. Clear light amber color with ivory head. Skanky, earthy, spicy, citrusy hoppy aromas. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Big spicy, dank, earthy citrusy hoppy flavors with a dusty pale malt base brew____nicely drying finish----very tasty.

"Dank hop aroma and flavor, pine abounds, slighltly spicy. Like Maharaja in presentation, though not as strong. Another wonderful beer from Golden Road (they had a few)...brough back week old cans!!"

Can from mane liquor. Pours a dark golden with firm white head. Nose shows sweet and sticky fruit. Mango and apricot with slight pine. Taste is grassy, with sweet fruit and some pine. Spritzy citrus finish too. Very drinkable ipa. 8% ABV well hidden too. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ALLOVATE (2407) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 5, 2014
Pours a pastel, sandy gold and opaque with a thinning, soppy white pad that manages a little lace. Nose yields notes of passionfruit, lychee and pineapple with hints of herbaceous, piney and weedy hops, and just a lick of citrus cleanser that is unshakable. Tangy, fruit juice dominates the palate but is ill-defined. Body is light and the alcohol has a heat to it that roughens up the finish. Hops are weak and drowned by the fruit esters. Carbonation is soft with a mostly dry finish. Grapefruit, peach and apricot conserve sums it up. Really one dimensional in the broad scheme of things. Not bad, just not exciting either. (50cL, canned 18/04/14, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)

maneliquor (3103) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 31, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2014 Can from Mane Liquor. Pours clear orange with a small white head which is quite sticky. Nose is very sweet - full of dank, apricot, mint and lychee with mildly fresh cut grass. Taste is full of lychee and clean cut grass with more sweet tropical juiciness throughout. Almost bright lime citrus. Nice aggressive bitterness to finish it off which I really like. Vibrant stuff. It really has a big whack of sweetness to it but it kind of works nicely with the astringent bitterness. Tasty stuff

My favorite of the Golden Road beers. Good IPA, a bit light on the hops but has a full profile.

On tap at Capitol Beer & Tap Room. Pours golden with a thick off-white head and a citrus aroma. There is a hearty caramel malt flavor with lots of hop bitterness. Nice.
