On tap at Umami Burger. Nice strong fruity and hoppy aroma. Pours a clearish yellow amber. Very light bodied. Tiny bitterness. Weak body. Ok. HourGlass13 (951) - North Carolina, USA - AUG 13, 2017
Pours up piss yellow, with a very minimal white head. Aroma is oily with some hop resin and grain. Taste is the same hop oil, some wheat, clove, straw, bitter pithy finish. DuffMan (10451) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 11, 2017
On tap @ Giant’s ballpark in SF. Light yellow, fairly hazy, with a lasting white head. Nice lean crackery malts with fresh grapefuit and a touch of foresty pine, moderately bitter finish. Clean and bright.

DATE: August 4, 2017... OCCASION: a day and night with the Morgans, complete with fireworks to come--a perfect opportunity to test out a new(er) session IPA offering.... GLASSWARE: Abita pint... pours a vivacious, bubble-fueled body that is murky enough to blur one’s hand behind it... thick, soapy white head leaves a pocked circle of lacing that banks at the corners... grapefruit, lemon, a dank basement of resin and hops--suggests a profile worthy of an IPA... some spiciness, like curacao... harsh cracker crispness too... medium-bodied, lightly hopped and pleasant in the mouth with little to awaken the teeth... the finish is surprisingly heft, with lemon acidity and malt.... rather balanced for an IPA from the West Coast... somewhat dry at its finish, with a flash of flourish early.... the grapefruit takes precedent, leaving lemon zest, passion fruit, curacao,and cracker to fight for the leftover profile... refreshing, light, and again, still a struggle to buy a "session IPA" as much more than than a cash-in on the IPA craze... but speaking of value, 15 cans for $18.99 sounds just right for an August that should be warm and thirsty...

Emeryville, Ca - BevMo! - 19.3 oz "tallish-boy" can. Light golden hazy pour, slight bubbly off-white head. Pretty much of a neutral aroma, hint of mint. Light citrus bite, some white grape juice, spearmint in the back end, Crisp mouthfeel. Rating #18 of my 2017 Northern California vacation, SONOFWODEN (65) - New York, USA - AUG 1, 2017
Oh No! I was at a restaurant out of town, wanted a Session IPA, saw the handle for this and ordered it not knowing that Golden Road is owned by AB InBev! I have been tainted! Ha. Actually though, Wolf Pup was good. . . not great. . . but solid. The aroma and taste was heavily grapefruit . . it was tasty and drinkable but I would have liked a more rounded citrus flavor.

Draft. Pours golf with with head and lacing. Pine and citrus aroma. Resiny pine dominates with grapefruit following in a short finish.
