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.

The aroma hit me as soon as I cracked the can open. Smelled like a sack of that medical marijuana that the kids are smoking these days. Tastes great. 8% you say? Yikes. Goes down like a 6%er. Fruity, hoppy. A little tiny bit over sweet, but nothing to complain about. Would be much better if it weren’t $11.99 for a 4 pack of tall boys, but that doesn’t play into my rating. That’s just me being a cheapskate, which I’m really not. So, down the hatch! Football’s on!

Can. Semi hazy orange golden beer with a large white head. Aroma is fruity with notes of citrus, orange juice, peaches and pineapple. Flavor is fruity with notes of caramel, citrus, grapefruit, tropical and peaches. Wow.

From a tall can. Pours hazy bright gold with a fizzy white head. Tastes like lemon, grapefruit, caramel, smooth booze, floral and citrus hops. Medium body low/medium carbonation. Smells like caramel, smooth booze, grapefruit, lemon, floral and spicy hops.

SG111 (398) - New York, USA - MAR 13, 2015
On tap at Sprenger’s, Santa Rosa. Pours pale yellow with a small head. Aroma is tropical fruits, and very dank hops. Flavor is similar. Sweet malts, tropical fruits. Pretty nice actually. Bitter finish, but not over the top.

nassoro (27) - Neuchatel, SWITZERLAND - MAR 10, 2015
Light yellow, strong hoppy aroma. To me, not terribly well balanced, as there’s barely any detectable maltiness. Bitterness from the hops really lingers.

Lighter and yellower than most IPAs I rate, poured from a 16oz can. Very strong and floral hops aroma, really sets the scene. Pine flavor and super light malt. Lingering bitter, but very clean finish. This one feels like a counterpoint to Deschutes’ Fresh Squeezed, which I also really like. Basically hits you over the head with hops flavor.

Bardzo dobra IPA, jedno z lepszych piw jakie piłem w życiu. Bardzo dobre west coast IPA. Goryczka krótka, ale wystarczająco intensywna, idealna. Wszystko w tym piwie jest idealne. Myślałem że Polskie piwa są na wysokim poziomie, ale okazuje się że Ameryka jest jeszcze daaaaleko przed nami. Jak ktoś będzie miał okazje kupić piwa z golden road, to bardzo polecam.

ACHops (894) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 19, 2015
On tap @ Zeitgeist. Pours clear golden yellow with thin lacy white head. Aroma is light sweet caramel malt, medium hops with light citrus, floral, and grassy notes. Taste is clean light malt, juicy citrus and pine hops with nice dry and floral notes. Clean and easy drinking, big flavor, especially considering the relatively light body.

Can thanks to snoworsummer. Pours hazy gold with creamy white head. Aroma is cereal and bready malts, floral and citrus hops, orange peel, and faint peach. Flavor is medium hop bitterness, lots of citrus, and good malt profile. Medium body and carbonation.
