Henry Street Tap Room - excellent imperial IPA on tap along with fifteen others. Great place to enjoy the warmth of Saratoga Springs on an Autumn Night. Eight dollars for flights of four; this beer moves to the top of the paddle. Above Troegs, Allagash, and North Coast.

Clear golden body with a white head. Superb lacing. Good eye candy.
Grapefruit, orange, pine, peach, touch of sweet tropical fruit, and gets a little dank and b.o. like.
Lots of bitter grapefruit, orange, resin, and bready malt. Long hoppy aftertaste.
Good carbonation, medium body, and the bitterness is big but not overwhelming.
I welcome this beer in the Victory line up.

12oz bottle poured into snifter
A - Nice tangerine, almost peachish color. Light amber. Two finger white head. Tremendous amount of lacing throughout the whole drink
S - Wow...HUGE first hit of hops followed by a subtle sweet malt profile. Some decent citrus notes coming through.
T - Can't even describe how well-balanced this is for a double IPA. Taste seems to follow the nose. Big initial bite of hops but very well balanced with as slight malt backbone..Getting some citrus throughout.
M - Medium body, moderate carbonation. Big bite and left with a nice bitterness
O - Perfectly balanced. Really hope they keep distributing in my area. Victory has really outdone themselves with the Dirtwolf. Just the perfect DIPA

This stuff is about as good as it gets. Pale orange in color with a frothy white head. The head is a little rocky and laces beautifully on the the glass. Smells Fantastic! Big thick hops. Tangerine notes intertwined with dank, earthy almost onion notes. It works! Taste follows. Big hop punch fades into a surprisingly graceful bitterness. The malt is there to keep things going, but stays in the background. Good light but significant feel with lively carbonation.

The beer pours a golden amber color with good head retention and lacing. The nose is pretty impressive in this one, as I pick up considerable tropical fruit, skunky dank earth, pine and dry citrus. The combination of aromas really does seem to give this beer something of a dirt smell, which in this case is actually quite attractive. The flavor profile repelicates the nose pretty closely in this beer, and I appreciate the way the hop profile counters the tropical fruit in this beer. Ultimately, the finish is dry and bitter, which I think enhances the beer's drinkability. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a fairly long, hop/bitter infused finish. Alcohol is very well integrated into the flavor profile, with no sign of heat on the finish.
Excellent stuff, and easily the best IPA/DIPA I've ever had from Victory Brewing. Hop Wallop is decent, but this stuff is flat out terrific.
