12oz bottle poured to dogfish mini-pilsner glass. Appearance is golden with tones of yellow..smell is fruity, grapefruit, citrus, apricot..taste is smooth for suggested 9%abv. Starts sweet amd citrus, and finishes fruity, and smooth, "air-ee" light bodied creamy mouthfeel. Lemon rind and orange peel.,highlights the hop frehness and taste without being too bitter or cloying.. Lacing is foamy and sticky. Carbonation is medium, with a crisp dry feel on the finish..this is refreshing and admirable. Paired nice with kabobs-cucumber yogurt sauce, grilled meat chimmichurri, mexican corn with cotija, feta.

Bright clear golden yellow color with bright white solid head. Lots of mango and Papaya on the nose, hints of Sauvignon blanc, grassy and citric.

Sweet fruitiness up front, sweet candied fruit. Malt adds a faintly syrupy body, finishes explodes with fruity hop flavor, amazing bright, medium bodied, absolutely no alcohol detection, bitterness is mild, just enough to balance the brew. Leaves the mouth watering. Didn't know it was possible to top dirt wolf but this beer is simply fantastic
