4.16/5 rDev -2.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Served from a bottle into a snifter at around 45°F
Appearance: Hazy golden color with a one finger white head that sticks around. Looks quite disappointing in the glass
Smell: Citrus, grapefruit, resinous pine, grassy. Clean aromas
Taste: Same as smell, but muted, with a little astringency, and a sweet malt finish.
Mouthfeel: Smooth with a bitter finish. Very light for the style, perhaps even watrery. But it's extremely drinkable and doesn't feel like 8.7% abv at all!
Overall: I don't think Dirt Wolf lives up to the hype. Maybe it's because I've been indulging in Enjoy By, Head Hunter, Chillwave, etc., but it seems too watery, and whatever good flavors are there, are muted, borderline astringent, and comes off as a bit of an imitation of the greats in my opinion. However, this beer is still solid, local to me, and reasonably priced, which is why I keep coming back.

4.41/5 rDev +3%

Pours a goldish-orange with a big white foam head that dissipates quickly. A small amount of lacing around the edges.
Lots of citrus hops in the aroma. Bursting with grapefruit, lemon, and orange. A little bit of sweetness going along with the cirrus. Nose finishes up with a burst of pine that is very strong.
The taste follows the nose. Lots of hops right up front, followed by the same bursting grapefruit and a hint of the lemon, with a touch of mango and possibly peach. A little bit of bitterness in the finish. Piney resin comes with the aftertaste. For such a hoppy beer, this is shockingly easy to drink.
Medium bodied with a decent amount of carbonation. The pine causes a bit of a resinous quality, making it a bit sticky going down.
Overall, this is a fantastic DIPA, once of my favorites so far. Despite the hoppiness, it is incredibly easy to drink, which could make it dangerous.
