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

Moderate pine aroma initially followed by a sweet caramel malt aroma. Taste is moderately sweet with a pine resin hop flavor and light orange and nectarine jam. Fairly balanced between malt and hop flavor but more on the malt side when compared to most pale ales by today’s standard. Still a very enjoyable and session able hoppy beer without too much bitterness or too much burnt toast malt.

Loved the color on this. Poured light golden with bubbles and a small white head. Hoppy and yeast nose that followed with a citrus hop profile that finished smoothly. A bit hop forward for a pale ale to my taste but good.

Orange clear with white head. Fruit and hop forward with mild bitterness. Not bad at all. Had this at Emmetts in downers grove from draft, part of a flight.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a slightly cloudy dark copper with minimal head. Aroma of pine, grapefruit and citrus with a strong caramel malt backbone. Taste is medium bitter. Pine and grapefruit. Medium bodied with a slick texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, very solid. Ill have to seek out more from this company.

Bottle. Poured hazy dark copper color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate to heavy hop bitter aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate bittersweet flavor with a smooth bittersweet finish of average duration. Solid drinkable brew.

12 oz. bottle pours a hazy orange/amber color with decent white head and lacing. Aroma has lots of orange and tropical fruits, pine resin, and caramel with a bit of grass and bread. Body is medium with average carbonation and an oily mouthfeel. A solid, easily drinkable pale ale which I’ll gladly try again.
