In the cold winter months, the pack doubles in size. A new evolution of an even more aggressively hopped classic. Dangerously intense aromas of citrus and earthy notes make this a beer that will be sure to send you howling for more.

A very good west coast ipa. Being hoppy but not cost your tongue with hops and bitterness. Nice balance of bitterness and malt. Overall very good west coast. Might be considered more of an American ipa with some dankness.

Poured into a narrow pint glass: color is straw gold, head is off white and presents 1 finger thick, really nice lacing and lingering solid top.

Smell is light malt, citric and pine hops, different than base Dirtwolf; notes seem less dank.

Pours pale gold with an off white head.

Citrus, resinous hops, and earthy malt.

Taste like an amped up version of Dirt Wolf. Less sweet and more resinous. It seems a little underwhelming at first but has depth and complexity in its subtitleness.

Not a fan of this one.
Victory should stick to the Lagers, they do those well.
Couldn't sell this one at our Pub. Seems not too many people like it either.

Four pack copped from Bottle King in Livingston. Pours a hazy, golden hue with moderate frothing. Taste redolent with hints of bitter grapefruit.

From the bottom of the can: "BEST BY DEC 29 22 DTW 22180 1103" and something after that is rubbed off.

Appearance: The body is a medium-dark gold color with a touch of a light golden-brown color. It has very good clarity. The head is white and rocky with big mounds of foam. It leaves thick cobwebs of lacing on the glass.

Aroma: It has a light pine aroma and there is a faint hint of alcohol. A touch of grain aroma comes through but it is very light. It has a pretty good aroma but it takes a lot of inhaling to draw it out. Mostly it consists of pine.

Taste: Up front there is a bit of a sweet but dusty and old caramel flavor. Towards the middle of the mouth there is a very subdued pine flavor with a touch of moss. Towards the back of the mouth there is a bit of alcohol but the flavors stay mostly the same. Faint pine aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel is muddled and a bit soupy with this odd smoothness that combines with a pretty mellow hop bitterness that barely comes through. The beer has a medium body that edges on the lighter side and it has a very wet finish that lingers on the palate.

Overall: It was a very unimpressive beer but it is drinkable. The can says that this is a "DOUBLE DRY-HOPPED DIPA" but that double dry hop doesn't seem to translate into either the very subdued aroma or the muted aroma. The bitterness is also very low. To the beers credit, it is very smooth and it does a pretty good job of reigning in what is listed on the can as "ALC/VOL 9.6%." As a whole it straddles the fence as a fairly average Double IPA and it is not one I would likely buy again. Although the beer is drinkable it isn't something I would recommend buying.
