12oz. bottle poured into pint glass. *Re-reviewing*
A: Hazy goldenrod with a very respectable, creamy off-white head. I had issues with head retention before, but that was clearly just a fluke. I purchased two 4-packs over the weekend, and I'm on my final bottle as I type this review. The head retention has been consistently incredible and the lacing left behind is absolutely gorgeous.
S: Grapefruit, pine, grass, malty undertones with some peppery alcohol that tingles the back of the nostrils after a big whiff.
T: Extreme wave of floral and herbal hops with tons of grapefruit citrus. Some grassy bitterness in the middle. Some nice caramel malt peeks through just enough to add some balance. A nice hoppy aftertaste, with some hints of boozy spice as well.
M: Carbonation is subdued, but not weak. Body is slightly heavier than medium, but not quite full. A little bit chewy due to some malt presence. Finishes semi-sticky, allows flavors to linger.
O: DirtWolf is an excellent brew that has pushed its way into my list of all-time favorites. All of the complexity and flavor of a DIPA with the drinkability of a regular IPA. At 8.7%, this brew is deadly. Victory has truly outdone themselves with DirtWolf—a masterpiece, if I may say so.
