Body & Texture: Oh so smooth! Slight bite. Great amount of carbonation. Excellent lacing on the glass.

Aftertaste: Just how it smells. Lots of malt, sweet, and lightly hopped.


Overall Impression: 
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!


Ryder also enjoyed it! What an alch...

  3. Your pup is cracking me up. My husband always lets our dog lick the top of his beer bottle when it's empty! This one made me smile :)

  5. I've seen this beer before and wanted to try it! And I drink everything out of jars including wine which probably makes me white trash... A little.
