Appearance: Ruby, caramel ruby. Offwhite retentive head with nice fine bubbles.

Aroma: Malty, with caramel breadyness. Citrusy fruit present in the nose. Very nice aroma for those who call themselves hopheads.

Taste: Fairly malty upfront. Hop flavor isn't as strong as would be expected from the aroma. Very clean beer. Hops and bitterness linger a bit but the mouthfeel and aftertaste blend together well.

Notes: Good beer. This particular bottle may have been mistreated, or a bit old. The hops just didn't seem to have the punch that I remember. I'll chalk this one up to be reviewed again at a later date.

Serving type: bottle

I love Victory DirtWolf so I had high hopes for this brew. Appearance, smell and mouthfeel was all good, but I was disappointed in the taste.
However, I then remembered that DirtWolf was a DIPA, and comparing wasn't fair, nor the intent of these reviews.
As a IPA, this was a good beer. No citrusy taste, but good hops and flavor.
