296th Daily Growler of 2013

Victory Dirt Wolf Double IPA $12/growler

This is a brand new beer for Victory and it is already in the Beer Advocate top 250. It is straight up awesome! It’s aromatic and tasty and a steal at this price. 8.7% ABV

From the brewery: 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 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.
