Wag The WolfWhite I.P.A. • 5.0% • Year-Round
Wag the Wolf is a hazy white I.P.A. that packs bright and citrusy organic hops into every sip. Brewed with a substantial ratio of organic wheat to barley malts, its aromas of lemon and grapefruit lead into a finish that is lively and refreshingly hoppy.
History & Style
The white I.P.A. is a modern mash-up of two beer styles, a classic wheat ale and a bold American I.P.A. To brew Wag the Wolf we use organic Motueka and Rakau hops, and a late-addition hop technique to draw extra aroma from them. The Wag the Wolf artwork features a striking graphic wolf with heterochromatic eyes.
Wag the Wolf pours a hazy yellow with dense white foam. There is a burst of citrus with lemon and grapefruit on the nose along with banana notes. The flavour is similarly fruity; with an additional hints of papaya, peach and mild peppery notes. The bitterness is firm but not overwhelming. It has lively carbonation and a medium body. The finish is bright and balanced.
