Feeling left out of the DirtWolf party I finally hit pay dirt at my local small-town bottle shop—two bottle limit but I literally jumped for joy to get a taste. Not sure what a DirtWolf is—but I like it.

A pale, hazy, golden pour from a 12 oz. bottle into a snifter to kick-off the festivities. The foamy, off-white head poops-out a little too early, but some nice lacing sticks around for the fun.

The nose on DirtWolf is outstanding. Bam—juicy-grapefruit, tropical-punch-blast into earthy, dank as a mo-fo, hop goodness. If there's any malt sweetness, I missed it.

Taste is bitter. Dank. Like the nose it hits you up front with citrus—I get mostly grapefruit. Then pine, resiny hop oil, and a bitter, dry finish. And I'll be damned if there wasn't an ever so subtle biscuity malt sweetness in there. Or maybe that was another party.

Carbonation was a little fizzier than my every day DIPA, but again—I liked it.

What a hop cocktail. Love to know the hop bill on this little devil. Definitely worth the wait. I'll be seeking out more of the allusive DirtWolf.

If you are looking for a surprise you will be disappointed. This beer is nothing out of the normal for Victory, amazing! I almost got ya there. I have been enjoying this beer for a few months no. A buddy from the east coast hooked me up with my first taste of the dirty wolf, and I have been handing out recommendations as often as I can. Great job Victory keep up the outstanding work!
