Wonderful and unique DIPA! Poured from bottle to nonic pint glass. Clear and copper-gold, with a finger of spittle foam atop. Piney and resiney in aroma, but quite different in flavor. Lots of earthy, floral, and herbal notes, some tea.

Near perfect imperial IPA, done with a dash of East Coast panache. Lightly hazed golden body with small soapy head. Aroma is citrus and pine in equal amounts. Taste is pure hop goodness, nice silky mouthfeel, buttery bitter finish.

When you first see DirtWolf it immediately pulls you in with the graphical design. The bottle and color design is prestige and has a great weight.

The smell is that of a spicy strong hop packed with flavor. At 65 IBU and 8.7 abv you get a smooth bitterness and strong content beer where you don’t taste the alcohol.

I fully recommend this beer when relaxing and hanging out with friends and family.
