COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Wildly assertive, intentionally untamed and dangerously satisfying, DirtWolf Double IPA is the culmination of Victory’s double IPA series experiment with whole flower American-grown hops. With two-row German malts and a well-balanced combination of whole flower Citra, Chinook, Simcoe and Mosaic hops, this 8.7% abv brew blends the powerful citrus aroma and fruity flavors, with the piney, earthy and mildly floral characteristics found in these intriguing hop varieties. Replacing Victory’s Hop Wallop® Ale, which will take a hiatus from the market for the time being, DirtWolf Double IPA will launch the brewery’s entry into four-packs when it begins to hit markets in October". “So a wolf and a prospector walked into a bar…,” joked President and Brewmaster, Bill Covaleski. “No, in all seriousness, Hop Wallop will be missed, but isn’t necessarily gone forever. We developed that brand 10 years ago as our flavorful response to the hop-bomb vogue of the time. But as brewers who enjoy experimenting with beer styles and ingredient varieties, we looked for the opportunity to do other interesting recipes as time passed. Making the decision to put Hop Wallop aside for a few years allows us to bring this delicious new double IPA, DirtWolf, to the market in bottles.

Darkly heroic, Humulus Lupulus (hops) have empowered brews with bite and character since the 11th century. DirtWolf is a tribute to these untamed vines which rise from the earth with the voracity of a ’wolf among sheep.’ Hops have made an assertive comeback in American craft brewing. Revel in the best US varieties of hops, in their natural, whole flower form, as they bring a vital, pungent reality to the soul of a wild element in our dangerously satisfying DirtWolf. Cheers, Bill, Ron, The Brewmasters of Victory.

Lahev: Golden, hazy, lively carbonation, creamy and very stable off-white head; spicy piney and lemony nose with a subdued bitterness in the Background; solid, but not completely dry, bitter-sweet flavour, medium to full bodied, creamy MF; gets drier and much more bitter in the still very well balanced pale-malty and piney-hoppy finish. Still drinkable...;-)

Saeglopur (733) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - SEP 22, 2014
Bottle from Bierkompass.de. Golden, moderate hazy body, with a big, stable, creamy, whte head, that sticks to the glass a lot. Aroma of citrus, pine, pineapple, many other tropical fruits, candy. Taste with the same aromas, also loads of tropical fruits, with the pineapple sticking out, some additional biscuit malt backbone. Mouthfeel is medum, slick, with a moderate carbonation and it finishes bitter, dry, with lemon zest, grapefruit, pine, grass and some sweet malts. Delicious! Perfectly balanced, not too bitter, not too sweet, with loads of wonderful tropical fruits, balanced by nice piney and smooth malty notes. Also really easy to drink, the ABV is completely hidden.

Aroma is somewhat fresh with citrus, grapefruit and some gooseberry bush. Flavour has strong gluey tones, some alcohol, grapefruit and citrus. Aroma was nice but the flavour is just too gluey.
