Very nice tropical, grapefruit, citrusy hop aroma with a slight pine and nice malt. Taste is the same feels like a ton of malt balancing the hops, but not sticky or sweet. Very balanced. Hops balance the malt and malt balances the hops, neither really wins. Really great. No piney resinous finish, but has pine in the finish, not sticky but enough sweet malt to balance the hops. Well done. I need to have more victory beers. They have really impressed me with the ones I have tried.

Citrus, pine, and some grass in the aroma. Golden honey color with spotty lacing from the beautiful frothy head that has really great retention. Flavor of pine, citrus (mostly grapefruit), and a kind of lemongrass that is delightful. Great hoppy brew with carbonation and an awesome low level bitterness that is very enjoyable. Dirtwolf is truly one of a kind and I thoroughly enjoyed this double IPA!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 23, 2015 Lots of tropical fruit on the nose - pineapple, mango, even guava, along with citrus, mostly grapefruit, and a bready malt note. I don’t often give beers over an average appearance score, as long as what I see fits in with what is normal for the style, but this one got extra points for the cool patterns the thin residual head bubbles continued to swirl atop the brew as I sipped at it. And nice lacing. Taste is all those big elements in the nose, but with a strong woodsy and dank overtone that give the beer a dark side, to balance all that Luke Skywalker light and bright fruitiness. Big and complex enough to sip slowly, but tasty enough to enjoy a whole glass. Pretty yummy DIPA.
I must note that as I got through the 4-pack over the following days, each bottle I drank struck me more and more strongly of dank and dord. Yes, dord. Listen to craft beer radio podcasts to increase your vocabulary.
