Poured hazy yellow with a fizzy white head. Aroma of citrus, melon, and resin. Really inviting aroma. Big tropical citrus hop profile flavor. Really delicious. Palate was a little thin but no alcohol. Good bye Hop Wallop.

Thin-headed golden pour. Bready aroma with some citrus - very pleasant. Flavors of malt, pine in the middle, and mellow lingering citrus finish. Well balanced, and incredibly smooth on the palate for a dipa at this abv.

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.

Bargain bottle from that pub in Tickenham, drank in bed watching Coraline, 08/02/15. Pours veiled orange generously frilled with lace. Good to see a healthy swirl of detritus swirling around in the bottom of the bottle too- bonus point. Aroma of sugared and honeyed fresh halved grapefruit, peach jelly, wine gums, mandarin cheesecake and Coitreau. Even some lean grassy aspects beneath the schnapps-sodden sponge fingers. Warm, generously pungent and rounded with a resinous juicy mandarin and grapefruit bitterness not overly cloyed by honey-spread rich tea and sugared marmalade. Chewy, fresh and contemplative. Quietly humming. Above average US DIPA with a depth of hop and malt character that dwarfs it’s alcoholic glow.

Pours an almost clear copper with small white head. Medium intensity on the nose, some toffee, hints of resin, slightly roasted maltiness and a touch of mango. Medium bodied, round palate with good bitterness. Nice East Coast-style IPA here.
