Pours a very clean light style with a nice creamy head. No question about hops here. It had the classic grapefruit/cirtrus/pinetar aroma. But it also wasnt as pronounced as some of the hoppy West cost IPAs

The first taste acknowledged what I was smelling. Very crisp and clean A good amount of up front hops, not overly bitter, but a good dry bitter taste.

The mouthful was not the biggest, but it was still full.
The finish was very clean, ended the same way it started

For a DIPA, this one was very easy drinking. The hops and bitterness was there, present but not slapping you across the face. It was more like a nudge at first, but then a stronger shake.

I am enjoying this one more and more. Its got all the correct traits of an IPA without being over the top, or under the bus.

Honeyed color with light orange hues in lower light conditions, with medium sized white head that dissipates after a few minutes. Nose has a good blend of citrus, pine, and herbs. Complex. Palate offers a nice balance too with plenty of hop character, background malt, and an overall drinkability that is sadly uncommon in most DIPAs on the market today. DirtWolf could easily be a daily beer for me.
