3.8/5 rDev -11.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a DFH signature glass.
A: Hazy auburn gold. Loose, offwhite head. Murky.
S: Smooth and sweet. Fruity. The lack of any astringency or bitterness prepares me for an older and/or underhopped (hah) beer. Hint of earthiness.
T/M: Pleasantly mellowed, but obviously faded from its prime. Robust mouthfeel, hint of sparkle at the edges, but mostly a mishmash of half-spiced herbs, grapefruit, mango, pine, and pineapple.
O: Has potential, but didn't wow me. Could be old beer over here in California, could be that none of Victory's super-hoppy beers have been to my taste.

wow, I have been a fan of the Victory beers from way back in the day when I lived in DC. Moved to AZ ten years ago and could not get it until recently. when it came available a few months ago, I immediately picked up some of the Prima Pils and it lives up to my memory and remains a great pilsner. being a huge IPA and double and imperial IPA guy, I was really excited when I noticed DirtWolf at Total Wine. I got a growler and brought it home to paired with some rare seared sushi grade salmon and kale salad. dinner was great, but in short the DirtWolf was a drain pour, a waste of $6.99 IMO. it wasn't like the keg was bad, maybe it was, but rather this beer seemed to have the hop profile, but it seems like a one dimensional beer, no backbone to speak of, flat tasting yet with seeming plenty of carbonation. vinegar like. just kind of a cheap IPA. I would probably buy a 12oz bottle one time to try it again to see if I had a bad batch or if I just wasn't in the mood, but from the growler experience this stuff is not good. I dumped it.

4.08/5 rDev -4.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4
Looks is slightly hazed deep golden with white head. If I look real close there are some floaties
Vibrant array of citrusy fruity hops I can smell before I put my nose to the glass. Sense of OJ, peach, alcohol is there.
Hops hop out at me in the taste, then hops also. This is a glass of hops. Building bitter finish with a decent peak but not too high. Resiny, piney, juicy citrus
Mouthfeel is decent, nothing to note. Slight spice but not really.
This seems to just be a standard, good vibrant sorta dipa. Would probably enjoy on a nice day
