I recently bought some cans of Golden Road Brewing’s Wolf Among Weeds and Heal the Bay IPA. They were both fairly expensive for a four pack of 16 oz. cans, so I had high expectations.
Wolf Among Weeds
Where – Home
How – 16 Oz. Can, poured into glass
ABV – 8.0%
IBUs – 80
Wolf Among Weeds pours a slightly cloudy and very golden blonde. Decent head.
Nose is very tropical and fragrant. Pineapple/tropical fruit present right away. Some citrus and earthiness as well.
Taste is similarly fruity, with good hop balance and piney-ness. The taste is fairly unique and unlike the typical West Coast IPA, although the hoppyness is still there.
Overall, it was very enjoyable. Biggest issue, quite frankly, was the price.
Heal the Bay IPA
Where – Home
How – 16 Oz. Can
ABV – 6.8%
IBUs – 65
I only got a single can of this one, and drank it on the roof straight from the can,so my review will be limited for now.
I had this immediately after I drank a Wolf, and immediately determined I preferred the Wolf.
Piney nose, hops seemed restrained. Good mouthfeel, slightly creamy, with some citrus in the finish.
There was nothing bad about it, but there was also nothing memorable.
