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.

Cristal clear golden color. Tiny head, awesome lacing. Sweet, fruity, citrusy aroma, might be much more intense. Taste has same thing. Might be much more clear, intense. Best thing about it is the ending. In both taste and aroma ending is grape. Very nice. Super drinkable for 8,7% abv, would say it’s about 6. Solid but not mind blowing.

BOTTLE. Clear straw to light gold in colour with solid foam head.. Sweet floral & fruit notes, passionfruit sticks out.. Good balance of mild sweet malt & big hop presence, a bit sappy yet hides the ABV well.. Sourced Cellarbrations @ Capel

This must be a dud, smells pretty off. Very disappointing as its my first try of victory beers. It's off down the sink. Shame. Large lumps of sediment almost chalky consistency. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Piwo złociste, klarowne, z ładnie krążkującą, bujną pianą. Aromat niezbyt intensywny, są owoce tropikalne, są czerwone owoce, jest trochę miodu. W smaku cytrusowe, lekko wyczuwalny alkohol.

Bottle thanks to Craig! Cheers Buddy! Appearance - golden with a nice fluffy head. Nose - fresh sweat, resin and lemon. Earthy spicy. Taste - grapefruit, resin and bitter pith finish. Palate - medium bodied with a tangy texture and a long dry bitter finish. Overall - good double IPA.
