4.47/5 rDev +9%
look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 3.5
Absolutely amazing! The lace from the cask pour and the insane amount of hops was leaving thick rings all the way down the glass. Sweet pine and spice aroma, fruity esters and a mild higher alcohol in the nose. So smooth on the palate with a biting hoppiness with a continuation of that with the alcohol in the finish. Every time the malt wanted to break through the hops beat it back down. The alcohol was a bit too much though this is thoroughly a sipping beer to begin with @ 8.5% abv.

12oz from Northbridge Pig’s closing sale. Poured into a Duvel tulip...
A: Deep gold; creamy, three-finger head; a few rings of lace.
S: Pungent... oniony hops; not particularly good.
T: Thank goodness, not like the smell; heavy grapefruit rind, but still not great; kind of harsh.
M: Medium feel, moderate carbonation.
O: Hopefully Dirtwolf is better.
(maybe this bottle was old / past its prime)

3.96/5 rDev -3.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4
A: Fairly translucent golden with a creamy, foamy tan head.
S: Sweet mango, nectarine, pineapple, pine and other floral notes in an excellent, though a touch weak, nose.
T: Taste is much more floral, unfortunately, but still has some citric, though not acidic, notes. Pine and other floral notes are much more harsh.
M: Carbonation is like a typical IPA, not so much like a double IPA, but really, at 8%, it's more of a strong IPA than a DIPA. Medium bodied.
O: Taste was disappointing after the nose, but it was a decent beer. Somewhat recommended.
