4.53/5  rDev +5.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

A: When poured into a teku glass the foam stood over 2 fingers tall with a pillowey bright white appearance. The long sustaining head, sloooly fell leaving a spider web of lacing. The beer is a straw yellow color with a slight haze to it. A few specs of sediment on the bottom of the glass.

S: Huge dank pine aroma with tropical berries and peach. An apparent grainyness but no detectable malt aromas so I'm guessing its a hop characteristic. Slight sweet onion and grassy, but not in a bad way imo.

T: Firm and pungent bitterness on par with the dank pine aroma. After the pine it follows with stone fruit hop flavors, peaches, mango and guava. There is a mild amount of bready malt character but the balance is by far on the hop side.. no contest. The aftertaste is a resinous, juicy and ripe with blueberries.

M: A very dry finish that compliments the hop profile nicely. The carbonation is moderate with a oily, slight mouth drying affect left on the pallet with all the hops.

O: A big, pungent, aromatic and tasty DIPA with no alcohol warming and huge drink-ability. Kudos Victory, now if only they would put a bottling date on the bottle...

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!
