It’s been some time since we did a beer review and didn’t want to leave you thirsty. So, while cooking a brisket yesterday, we needed to glaze the pan after searing the brisket. On the other side of the fridge I could hear the call, the call of the wolf (aaarrruuuuuu). I reached into the fridge hastily (the pot was hot but losing heat). I opened up the fridge to see its two different colour eyes looking back at me. Instinctually, I grabbed the beer and opened it without looking. To my shock it was an… I.P.A.. Beau’s Wag The Wolf White I.P.A. Which is not necessarily my first choice. Full disclosure: I bought it for the can. It has a wolf on it so it fits neatly into the whole cottage thing.
Not a total loss we figured. I.P.A.’s are a good choice for cooking because they tend to be flavourful. But how does it taste? With a third committed to the cooking and thirsty like the wolf we gave the remainder a try. The results were… pleasantly unexpected. A wolf in wolf’s clothing.
Wag The Wolf White I.P.A. Review
Dougie: 3.5 / 5 (Citrus, Creamy, Crisp, Grassy, Herbal, Sour)
Fumino: 3 / 5 (Balanced, Citrus, Crisp, Sour)
I really enjoyed this I.P.A. the citrus of the hop was not overbearing like most I.P.A.’s and was really creamy. It had a lemony gold colour that looked delectable. A really good first beer that I could have definitely had another one of. I wouldn’t want to drink it all night but why not pique your palette first. I think it will be a great beer for summer. I will retry it under perfect outdoor conditions, sun shining, radio blasting and report back.
