A Note on This Beer
It seems like every IPA is dry-hopped these days. But, unless you’re a brewer yourself, you might be wondering what the heck “dry hopping” even means.
Well, I’ll tell you — dry-hopping is when brewers add hops to the beer after fermentation. Because the brewers don’t boil them, strong fruit-forward aromas and flavors are coaxed out without lingering bitterness.
And guess what? Anchorage Brewing dry-hopped today’s Wolfess a whopping six times! Letting the brew settle a bit after each hop addition for full flavor retention, this acclaimed crew stuffed this DIPA with round after round of Motueka, Simcoe, NZ Cascade, Citra, and extra-potent Citra Cryo Hops.
Crack it open, and fresh citrus and pine aromas howl out of the can. Heck, after one sip of all this hoppy goodness, you’ll want to throw your head back and start howling in glee yourself!
That would bother the neighbors though. So, try instead to let the brew linger on your tongue and focus on its robust complexity. Orange citrus greets you up front, followed with backsplashes of lychee and pithy grapefruit. Dewey pine makes for a resinous finish.
Your mouth watering yet? That’s normal. Better grab some extra cans while we’ve got this Wolf out of Alaska!
