A: Pours a rather hazy orange. The off-white head is initially fairly tall, with a soapy, frothy texture. Head retention and lacing are both excellent.
S: Wow. Very vibrant citrus, tropical, and resiny hop aromas are front and center here. Orange, grapefruit, pineapple, mango, stone fruit, and perfumey resins. There are some dank, secondarily grassy notes lurking behind the prominent citrus and tropical notes. A bit of lightly drizzled brown sugar and cookie-like malt sweetness is also present.
T: Mild malt sweetness up front, with light caramel flavor. Hop bitterness is fairly strong, but not overwhelming, which allows the blast of hop flavors to shine. Whatever hops they used complement one another very well. Juicy citrus, peach, tropical (pineapple and mango), and candied flavors. Some grassy and herbal flavor lingers into the finish.
M: Medium body, with supple carbonation. Rather creamy up front before the hops take over and lead to a gradually building dryness. Alcohol is just slightly noticeable, but with no detrimental effects.
O: This is an outstanding, memorable DIPA from Victory. Very inviting and drinkable for being such a big, vibrantly hopped beer.

I bought a case of DirtWolf almost as soon as it hit the shelves. And it did not disappoint. I would only warn that the beer is so well crafted that the higher Imperial ABV is masked completely (unlike some other Imperial styles) . So, tread lightly! It's not called DirtWolf without reason!
