COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

Palatine location. Sweet, spicy smell. Tiny spotted head. Amber-bronze in color. Fruity crispness. Malt is more prevalent than the hops. Malt gives it a maibock like quality. More flavorful and fuller than Emmetts other brews.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 2, 2005
From growler. Dark amber color with a smaller off white head. Aromas of fresh hops with a light backdrop of caramel and light toffee. Sweet malt start with a touch of light fruit. Citrus slips in and helps whisk away some of the sweetness. Very much an APA rather than an IPA as many would call this.

Cornfield (5465) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - DEC 6, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2005 Pouring a hazy, light copper color with a frizzy white head, this APA had a light, earthy hop aroma coupled with a whiff of malts. The two balanced nicely in the drink, ending with a crisp, slightly bitter finish. Not bad.

this was a surprisingly agressive american pale ale. well balanced with plenty of hops. this was excellent. the only bad part was that it was part of a sampler and not a full pint.

JMerritt (1792) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - MAR 6, 2004
Cloudy amber in color. Head is thick, white, and leaves behind excellent lacing. Flowery hop aroma (Cascade). Quite high hop bitterness is surprising. Finishes very clean. Thick and buttery mouthfeel. Quite delicious.
