Victory has taken their time crafting an excellent DIPA. For several years, the Ranch series experimented with different recipes for double IPAs, bit to be honest, they were all "too Victory." Those that know (and love) Victory beers know what I mean. There is a certain hop character that a few of their beers share. HopDevil (a long-time favorite) and Prima Pils are prime examples of what I referring to.

However with DirtWolf, Victory has broken our of that flavor profile and created a new and delicious DIPA. Though at the expense of Hop Wallop (for now), it's a superior beer on all accounts. The hops are very prevalent, but rounded off and blissfully tropical. The only issue I have found with this nectar is that its 8.7% abv is dangerously deceiving (maybe they picked the wrong motto).

With DirtWolf, Victory has finally catapulted themselves into the arena of spectacular DIPAs, up there with The Plinys, Hopslam, Brown Sugar, Heady Topper and the like. The throne may not be far away. Beware the howl!
