Brewed By: Victory Brewing Company
DirtWolf by Victory Brewing Company is an intensely hopped Double IPA that is full of hoppy, earthy, and citrus flavors. It also contains a lasting bitterness, with a strong grapefruit aroma, and a spicy dry finish. DirtWolf pours a bright clear golden color without much head, and is just as hoppy as the “Double” before “IPA” suggests.
The story of Victory Brewing Company starts in 1973 in, of all places, a school bus. (Hear me out) Co-founders Bill Covaleski and Ron Barchet met on their way to a new school back in fifth grade. Having both become rival home brewers later in life, they left their corporate jobs behind, and Ron and Bill came together once again (this time not on a school bus, but) to open Victory Brewing Company on February 15, 1996.
