Arctic Panzer Wolf

Saw the name on the menu and HAD to order it.  Arctic Panzer Wolf from Three Floyds is a nice little 9% ABV Imperial IPA that’ll warm your heart and tickle your fancy.  It’s gold and hazy in the snifter, with a filmy, white head and a propensity for lacing.  The sweet, malty bouquet is full of piney and flowery hops and some burnt orange citrus.  It tastes sweet, astringent, dry and bitter, being mild on the tongue but strong in the nose.  It’s medium to light-bodied, has a good malt backbone and is not as strong in the hop department as advertised, and I’m quite alright with that.  Yes, it is good and hoppy, but I was expecting more.  There is a strong note of cane sugar in the finish as the beer warms.  Arctic Panzer Wolf is good stuff from a great brewer.
