4.25/5  rDev -0.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

i recall this beer being a shade darker than golden with a decent head that got my glass messy in a most lacy way. mild, fat bubbled carbonation drunkenly diffused to the top as the glass got less full.

the nose was full of pine sap and clumpy chunks of cut wet grass with juicy citrus grapefruit notes over a clean malt sweetness.

as preposterous as it may seem the taste was very similar to what the nose alluded to. a resinous mouthfeel was noted as a tremendous succulence poured across the palate. the malt base utilized is ideal to this reviewer. the golden hue held true to anticipation and a crisp and clean malt character allowed the wonderful hop properties to flourish. sappy, resinous pine. citrus juice and rind. a bit lemony with a dash of grass. lip smacking and drink provoking.

the mouthfeel was a solid medium. not quite syrupy. completely fulfilling in the context of what it was carrying on its back.

overall this is one to be missed when gone and the dirtwolf is now extinct in these parts. victory victorious again. one could only wish for some hop wallop to fall back on...

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!
