4.38/5 rDev +2.1%
Reviewed from notes. Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a Weyerbacher pint glass.
A: Nice bright gold, lightly hazy, with lots of small bubble visible carbonation and a finger's worth of white head.
S: Bright tropical fruits, melon, with less dank, resin and citrus hops with a light cracker malt underneath.
T: Tropical fruits, mango and pineapple, and melon, with some dankness over the lightly sweet cracker malt. A restrained bitterness in the hang, especially for style.
M: Light body for style but not at all watery. Low alcohol presence, and quite a bit of carbonation sensation.
O: Wow, I'm really happy with this one. Very good, especially for a shelf IIPA that comes in a four-pack. Really well-done, and I anticipate this one making frequent appearances in the refrigerator. Recommended for sure.

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass.
A - Semi-cloudy gold/yellow with a finger of off white head. A thin head stays for a long time.
S - Big juicy and citrusy hops dominate the aroma. Grapefruit, pineapple, orange, and a bit of caramel.
T - Again, lots of citrus hops in the flavor. Grapefruit is the main flavor, followed by pineapple, orange, and caramel malt. A good amount of bitterness that is balanced by some of the caramel/fruit sweetness. Alcohol is well hidden.
M - Moderate body with moderate-to-high carbonation. Nothing special here, but it complements the flavors nicely.
O - I was very impressed by this brew. It's got all the citrus hop flavors that I love and a great balance between sweetness and bitterness. Great job, Victory

Awooo! Raul is howlin' at the moon as he sips on this nightly predator known as DirtWolf.
Right when you pop the cap on this bad boi you are greeted by unearthly aromas. Aromas Raul could only imagine that equal to a Miranda Kerr bubble bath - Raul means, wow! Taste and mouthfeel is good; for the most part Raul is feelin' them right well. The only drawback is a bit of astringency and heat on the backend of things. Kinda like if Miranda lit up a Parliament light while in said bubble bath; I mean, things are still gravy, but I wish she rather hadn't.
Go, my children! Do it!

12 oz bottle at fridge temp poured into a snifter. Best before MAR 2014
Pours a nice golden to very light orange color, the slightest bit of haze. A nice billowy white head off the pour, holds pretty well, big bubbles. Really nice sticky lacing. A bit of sediment settles at the bottom of the glass, hop debris?
Big dank hop aromas, quite floral, resins, juicy tropical fruits, a bit of vegetal matter. Very reminiscent of a handful of freshly picked hops.
Wow, big hops. Lots of dank, floral, juicy tropical fruits, sharp bitter citrus fruits, orange, some grassiness. Just enough malt to provide a nice foundation, but not really enough to add any flavor to the beer.
Kind of a lighter feel, but just a touch of the higher ABV is noticeable.
Really all about the hops, a ton of flavor. One of the better DIPAs available.
