Victory DirtWolf Double IPA
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a shaker pint glass. Served chilled...
A) Nice golden amber brew with a good finger of head. The head settled to a dusting, and stuck around for the duration. Lots of sticky lacing.
S) Piney.... Pretty dank and earthy, and yet there is some sweetness to this aroma as well. Like sweet tangerine.
T) Decent balance of hops and malt. Starts out with some sweetness, and transitions to spicy hop bitterness. A little alcohol as it warms up.
M) Medium body with moderate carbonation. A good amount of bitterness coats your mouth. This finishes up with a little sweetness and light booze.
O) Pretty good stuff... Not smooth by any means, and the aftertaste could be better, but I could go for another already.

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.
