4.49/5 rDev +4.7%
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.

Had a growler filled at Premier Gourmet this weekend....I love that place.Poured into an impy nonic a clear light to medium golden with a great looking blooming white head that left two multiple rings of lace as it settled into a frothy mass.Pine and grapefruit along with sugary sweetness in the nose,there is drunken fruit element to it.Fresh citric hops greet the taste buds that melds into a grassiness and then into a sweet dough caramel base,a sugary alcohol element is there but doesn't overpower the hops.I like it,top 5....not sure,but it kicks ass.

12oz bottle poured into Mr. Pint.
Appearance: A hazy, mostly translucent yellow with brisk bubbling action and a white head that leaves a little bit of lacing on the side of the glass as it slowly dies down.
Smell: Holy complex nose, Batman! Citrus, hops, pine, grass, grapefruit all just take their turn in blasting out for my enjoyment.
Taste: Very much reflects the nose. Nice, complex - and distinct - flavors centered around citrus, pine, grass, and hops hit pretty good.
Mouthfeel: Pretty crisp. A little bit of the pine lingers as an aftertaste.
Overall: Well, then. $9.45 for a 4 pack well spent!

4.15/5 rDev -3.3%
A: A light colored DIPA that is a deep golden beer with good clarity. The white head is quick to fade into a thin cap of soapy bubbles.
S: A strong citrus hops aroma that mostly has notes of grapefruit, pine, some pineapple and a fair amount of an herbal character. There is a light malt a sweetness and a low alcohol sweetness.
T: An aggressive hops bitterness and a very strong citrus hop flavors. The hop flavors are a lemon/lime, pine, some mango and little citrus zest. There is just enough malt for support and nothing more making for a very bitter balance. The finish is off-dry with a lingering, citrus hops flavor and bitterness. There is some herbal qualities to the hop flavor that is more apparent towards the finish.
M: A medium bodied beer with a light creaminess and a strong level of carbonation.
O: A very well crafted Double IPA that brings a ton of American citrus hops to the party. The entire focus and balance of the beer is out towards showcasing the hops.
