WTF is one of my all time favorite beers. So, I may be bias…
After tasting plenty of lighter beers, like Pilsners and Hefeweizens, I started to dabble in Amber Ale’s, before fully becoming a self-proclaimed “west coast” hophead. This is where that beer comes in for me. It’s got tons of those ambery malt flavors, which most amber ale lovers love. What I truly enjoy about it is, it’s hoppiness at the end. It’s a combination of those malts that I fell in love with and the hops that I love today. I really wouldn’t change one thing about WTF. Oh, except that I wish it it were available all year. If you spot this brew in the market, pick it up!
