Appears a warm shade of gold with some haze. The soft white head thins to a ring around the edge. Lots going on in the aroma-first peach, melon, and citrus, then pepper, grass and pine. So potent, almost seems minty. Some evidence of bready malts to balance the hoppy goodness. The flavor is a continuation of the aroma, hoppy from the tip of the tongue to the back. More citrus rind, some grapefruit pith, and the finish leaves you with a trace of caramel. Big, fruity, and earthy and it begs you to drink up in spite of the abv, which could be ignored if you weren't careful. Well done! Nice addition to the Victory lineup.

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!
