From Nanaimo’s Wolf Brewing comes their limited release “Cerberus” Triple Dry Hopped Imperial IPA. The beer pours a copper colour with an off white head and lots of lacing. The aroma consists of tropical fruits, melon, citrus, sweetness, earth, malts and floral hops. The flavour is of earth, resin, hops bitterness, citrus, tropical fruits, peach and caramel malts. The alcohol content comes in at 8.8% with and IBU of 80. I like this beer on tap better than bottle but this is a great Double IPA a style that does not get enough attention in BC.
Commercial Description: 3 dry hop additions with 3 varieties of hops over 3 weeks. Naturally carbonated, unpasteurized, unfiltered and brewed with 9% locally grown and locally “malted” fine 2 row barley. Our 3 hops, Zythos, Galaxy & Ella, incarnated as the 3 headed beast. Cerberus on the label deliver a vicious attack on the palette with citrus, peach, and a delicate pine locked in a dog fight with the alpha acid and a warm smooth bite of alcohol. A battle to the bitter end!
