4.35/5  rDev +1.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

12oz bottle into a snifter.

Pours a slightly hazy dark gold with a thick, frothy white head that has amazing staying power.

There is a wonderful aroma on this one with loads of juicy citrus along with a healthy shot of earthy dankness. I'm getting a lot of grapefruit with a touch of mint. Pine resin along with a bit of dank. Very nice.

The flavor is less earthy and more citrusy. Great tropical fruit notes and it is very juicy. The mint that I picked up in the aroma is present in the flavor and there is also a very pronounced malty note. Plenty of bread with just the slightest bit of biscuit. Bitterness is on the high side as it should be and any sweetness is held in check. Fairly clean finish with a touch of sweetness.

Overall, this is an amazingly delicious IIPA. Probably the best I have had. This beer is better that Hopslam and goes toe to toe with Sucks. Also the price and availability can't be beat. A world-class beer.

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!
