4/5  rDev -2.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a New Belgium snifter

A - Golden sunset, half finger head, some lacing

S - HOPS, MALT like crazy up front. Soil, grass, barley, grain, maybe some wheat and a bit of pine and other wood

T - Pine and floral hops, a bit of toasted malt and grain, bitter sweet malt, some earth and wood. Very nice bitterness

M - Light, fluffy, carbonated. No film but bitterness hangs around a while

D - Drinks like a standard IPA, but the bitterness of an imperial or double.

Final thought - Name says it all, the price is a bit steep at $12 a sixer

Usually have this on tap at Victory, but found the bottles at my local craft beer store. Pours a nice golden color. Compared to the draft pour it is much lighter and less hoppy, but a slight piney hop flavor. Not a fan of it on bottles.

Somewhat bitter. Light on the front end. Not a huge fan of its replacement, Dirtwolf. I will just wait for now on to drink this at the brewery.

3.7/5  rDev -9.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Knew this beer was retired about 6 months ago in favor of DirtWolf so when I saw a bottle at the local store, I figured it was about time I finally try this.

Hop Wallop poured a hazy and cloudy gold yellow hue with a two finger white soapy head. The lacing sat in rings as I took each sip.

The smell was almost none existent for me. Resinious hops and bready malts were the only faint things I picked up.

The taste was the best part of this beer. It was dominated by the dank piney hops and a layer of toasted malts on the tongue. At the back end, I tasted orange (it was subtle) but the bitterness kept coming.

I think this beer needed a stronger malt backbone to intensify the hops. Overall not my favorite from Victory. DirtWolf is a big improvement.

Mixed dank and citrus nose. Mildly oxidized aroma. Taste is similar: a hint of oxidation, mild dank, and moderate citrus. Mildly astringent as well. Thin head, with good lacing. Mouthfeel thin-medium. No heat. I generally like Victory beers, and was pretty disappointed with this one.
