I have been thinking about trying to clone this beer. Is this just an attempt to clone or did you get some inside info from Victory. They wouldn't give me any info at all aside from the hops they use.

No inside info. I just brewed this myself and kegged it. It really came out nice. I was very pleased. I used Chinook as my bittering hop then I figured I would use Citra,Mosaic and Simcoe for flavor. The Citra dry hop also added an amazing aroma. Those were the hops listed on their website. It was the first time I ever used Mosaic hops, and as it turns out, I was happy with their flavor profile. The color was almost spot on too. I wanted a very low malt backbone so the citrusy hops can stand out, and they certainly did. Well worth the try on this one. I'm gunna brew this one again soon, since it isn't lasting very long.

My only criticism would be that they're not using domestic 2-row. Check out http://www.victorybeer.com/beers/dirtwolf-double-ipa/. I've been keeping my eye out for a good clone of this so I'll have to give it a try. Thanks for sharing!

Yeah, I saw that as well. I wasn't sure how that would affect my clone, but it didn't seem to matter that much.

Probably minimal with the amount of hop character the beer has. Have you done a side by side tasting of the clone vs the real thing?

Yes, I did a side by side tasting and they were very close. I actually thought my clone had better aroma and slightly better flavor, but I was probably just being partially biased to my homebrew. Regardless, they were both very good. I really enjoy the Dirt Wolf, and I am not always a huge fan of Victory beers, but they got that one right.

I was going to mention the 2row part to but it probably doesn't matter much in the finished product. I would imagine they are using a Pilsner base since that seems to be their default base malt, but may be in conjunction with some Pale Malt.
