Pours hazy amber. Earthy and dank -- an excellent substitute for Hop Wallop. This one too has a heck of a wallop. All sorts of citrus and fruit. Nice job Victory.

Bottle. Light golden with white head. In aroma malt, hint of floral hops. In taste low sweet, dry with nice hoppy flavours. The beer is balanced, the bitterness is not over the top. Nice, balanced DIPA.

Pours light golden with white head. Aromas of floral hops, spice, and malt. Light to moderate mouth feel and carb. Balanced hop/malt profile leaning slightly to the sweet malty side. Finishes crisp and light. No bitter after taste. For a DIPA, I would prefer a bit more hoppiness, but a nice beer obver all.

Surprisingly hoppy aroma out of the bottle, although I don’t know why I’m surprised. Citrus, vinous, dusty, and bitter, with only a note of malt backbone. More bracing hops, well-balanced hops effect without becoming one dimensional. Clean hoppy finish and overall this is an excellent beer.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
"Crystal clear body, golden in color, with a two finger thick head, with lively carbonation. The smell was perfumey and herbal hops with some citric smell. The taste was loaded with grapefruit, and very bitter. The whole flower hops were clearly the star attraction here, and the malt was very unobtrusive. The alcohol level was shockingly well hidden, as there was no burn of any kind. The finish was very dry, with an herbal bitterness. The beer was light and slippery in the mouth, providing a refreshing jolt of bitterness in each sip that did not linger on or coat the mouth. Overall a very nice brew form Victory, certainly worth a try.

Erg lekker double IPA. Niet te vergelijken met anders double/imperial IPA. Voor mij smaakte het als een kruising tussen een double IPA met een Westmalle Tripel. Dus niet verkeerd ! Sowieso is Victory een onderscheidende brouwerij. Proef ook Golden Monkey ! Geweldig !

Tap @ Beer geek bar. Pours clear golden with a white head. Does not smell like the freshest batch. Lots of resin, sweet malts, overripe fruits, caramel, peach and some citrusy hops. Taste is sweet with some citrusy hops, overripe fruits, sweeter malts, resin, orange, caramel and maybe even sweet strawberry. Wasn’t bad at all but it was definitely not the freshest keg. Would love to try a fresh one.
