From the Brewer:
A reflection of our love of US West Coast IPAs, this IPA bursts with resinous, tropical hops, a solid malt backbone and a firm bitterness. A true West Coast IPA designed to have balance between hops, malt and bitterness.
Sit down and savour with a meal or on its own, this solid IPA is indulgent and refreshingly 'big' - for those moments when you want to step it up a bit. The Wolf of the Willows name sake, Lupus Salictarius, pays homage to the humble hop, so only fitting that our heavy hop hitting IPA does as well.
Inspired by Scotty's days working in Colorado as a ski bum. Think drinking American pints of fresh fresh IPA, playing darts and pool, eating buffalo wings and watching the sun go down over the Rockies with a few good mates after a hard days snowboarding. Yep, we wish were there right now chasing some freshies....
Double Dry Hop (DDH) aka a truckload of hops at different stages in the fermentation. Citra, Simcoe, Vic Secret and Strata.
Ale malt balanced by a touch of crystal malt and a bucket load of wheat for head retention and lacing for the glass.
Finish Smooth but firm bitterness
