look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Look: Hazy golden color with effervescent bubbles; finger-width head
Smell: Anodyne, hoppy aroma; not over-powering or particularly strong
Taste: Crisp and piney; aftertaste of a bitter, citrus tang
Feel: Surprised at how carbonated it is; well-bodied and sits on the palate smoothly
Overall: Drinkable and inoffensive, though maybe a little too "tangy"

Hop forward and boozy. Enjoyable but missing something. That’s just my opinion.

Victory is a very nice brewer, and this is a great example of their handiwork. Great aroma, solid taste, well disguised alcohol content. If you see it, gab it and enjoy.

Fantastic smell, overflowing head. This beer pales by comparison to its predecessor - Hop Wallop in both taste and smoothness. It is a very good IPA and is of very good value for the ABV, but it simply takes a back seat to both the legendary Hop Wallop and Hop Ranch (also now defunct). If this beer was available in cans I might buy it once in a while, but it simply lacks the taste of Hop Wallop. Whereas Hop Wallop and Hop Ranch were case-worthy, Dirtwolf simply is lacking the qualities of these other superior beers. When will Victory come to their senses and start brewing fantastic beers again?
