Light copper in color, fresh, spicy citrus aroma. Malt is there as well, along with the typical ale fruity esters. The first taste reveals a pronounced bitterness without being harsh or biting. Malt flavor shows itself briefly, but gives way to a wonderfully fresh hop flavor followed by a pleasant, mild bitterness.

Victory Pale Ale is all about the hops. It is full of big hop flavor, aroma and bitterness, which are all supported by substantial malt character. The Victory finishes with a fresh-picked hop character on the palate that will leave your mouth watering. 5.6% ABV

Had at Emmettís in Downers Grove. This is a very nice pale ale. Quite hoppy but not overwhelming. Serving: Tap

bottle, enjoyed on the 95th floor of the John Hancock building in Chicago. Bright orange copper, like a shiny new penny. Big bold grapefruit and sweet resin aroma and flavour, hoppy hoppy hoppy! I would have sworn this is an IPA. Fantastic!

Great aroma, and nice head are the first impressions with this beer. Lots of hop character, especially for an APA. Great beer overall.

Bottle at DLD thanks to an unknown person. Pours a nice clear orange-copper color with a white head. Aroma is citrusy and grassy hops with a little sweet malt. Flavor is bready pale malt and caramel along with lots of hops, grapefruit and grass. Medium-bodied with a nice dry and bitter mouthfeel. Overall this is great for the style.

An outstanding representation of what an American Pale Ale should be. The citrus nose and palate are ridiculously good. I believe people blur the line of an IPA and an APA. Those who can appreciate the difference will love this beer.

Cask at Night of the Living Ales. Pours orange - citrus hop nose. Flavor of floral and citrus hops. A little light - but decent enough. At least it was easy to get to - being on the end.
