On tap.

Was okay for a double IPA. Didn't pack a lot of flavor to me. Super high ABV.

2 week old dirtwolf. An absolutely awesome DIPA. Tons of hops with a nice backbone that balances it out slightly on the hop side. Well done victory

A: Beautiful head that slowly morphs into respectable lacing and a distinct crown. A slight swirl brings back almost a full finger head and starts the process anew! Nice amber hue.

S: holy hops, Batman. Bright grapefruit, sappy pine, and a sticky sweetness on the nose.

T: piney resins, grapefruit, and citrus pith up front. Mellow to moderate sweetness throughout, with a botanical finish... Herbal and grassy. Red leaf lettuce.

M: medium body, with a firm backbone of viscosity from the sweetness. A bit heavy, like honey water.

O: A nice DIPA. Not my favorite style, but this is a great exemplar of the style nonetheless and a quite enjoyable one. Alcohol is well hidden, but drinkability is limited by sweetness and high bitterness.

Had at Newts in Shippensburg PA. Served at a nice cold 5-6deg C.

A- 4.0 Opens well and pours a nice head. Dark gold good.

S- 4.25- Lots of hops here. Super loaded on the hops I should add.....

T- 3.75- Believe it or not very light on the hops. Very mellow and subdued along with a powerful malt backbone.

M- 3.75- Light on the pallet for a DIPA. Not much carbonation. Just a bit on the blah side

O- 4.1- This is what I would give this beer. Not 4. Good beer. Needs a bit of work.

Food Pairing

I enjoyed this beer with the other half of the Hoagie burger I had
