Since I can't get the Heady Topper regularly, this is my replacement. As a lover of big beers and preferably double, or triple ipas, the DirtWolf was destined to be right up my alley. However I didn't expect this beer to take over my palate and never let it go. I love this beer, fantastically floral and earthy it pops onto your tongue and placates it with a wealth of intense hops and dry malt back. A must buy and at a very reasonable price for the quality.

A - pours a light golden yellow with a full finger if frothy near white head, good retention, fantastic lacing. Looks great!
S - Smells like a west coast, lots of dry hops, grapefruit, mango, pineapple, citrusy sweetness with mild sweet cracker aromas.
T - Spicy, resinous dry bitter hops up front, followed almost immediately by mango, pineapple and orange rind. As the beer warms the resinous qualities subside and the sweet citrus flavors come forth. A hint of sweet caramel malt peaks through at the finish but this is a bitter resinous citrus bomb from beginning to end really. Nice lingering aftertaste.
M - Great mouth feel, medium bodied or less, good carbonation coupled with the refreshing bitterness makes this very drinkable.
O - Pretty awesome, the flavors tend to mush together a bit too much and the resinous qualities seem to dominate. I anticipate that changing once I get this beer around 50 degrees or so. I'll critique this as necessary

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
