30th October 2016 – Review by Rob
Inspired by and named after one of Cornwall’s most dangerous offshore reefs, located seven miles off Land’s End. Wolf Rock, brewed at 4.8%, is a fusion of the red ale and IPA styles combining Noble and New World hops with the world’s finest special malt to give a distinctive red hue.
After a long day a weary worker (me) needs a beer, what finer thing to come home to than a Sharp’s Brewery beer, their standard is pretty good so whatever beer you get you know it’ll be palatable at the very least. Initial looks is the stunning deep red colour, not known for an IPA. Smells similar to melon 🍉 sweet to the palette with a crisp aftertaste. The finish is malty sweet leading to clean hop.
Best served chilled and quite frankly is more enjoyable as a celebratory drink, when you’ve just taken your son to his first football match and they managed to win (me again). An inoffensive drink that won’t win any accolades but a decent pint that I recommend nonetheless. Don’t go out of you way to find this, but don’t turn up your nose if someone offers it to you.
