3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2013 Pours a clear golden orange from the bottle with thin off-white head that leaves light lace. Aroma is zesty resinous hops, slight citrus. Taste follows, hints of pine, lots of citrus, no real finish. Pretty decent, but not as good as I was hoping.

Bottle pours amber with off-white head. Aroma of citrus. Flavors of yellow grapefruit, other light citrus, with hints of pine and a wonderful hop finish. Another quality ale from Victory.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a pale golden with white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma is moderately dank with earthy resin, citrus, and pine, juicy with a swirl. Taste starts fresh and green, with a bold earthy bitterness and dank pine. The bitterness shows it means business with some grapefruit rind in the middle. It’s only momentary, however, as the sweet malts arrive fashionably late to bring balance in the retronasal. 30 seconds later, an ideal remnant of a bold double IPA remains, if you can wait that long between sips. Palate is medium-bodied and really smooth - perfect for the style. This one is really good.

Tap at Macgregors. Very fruity flavor of berries, grapefruit, fruity but not too sweet, clean and with nice bitterness. Flavorful, fruity, and drinkable.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is a good solid DIPA....the bitterness has a nice sweet touch of piney lemon zest zing. Wasn’t bowled over as the nose is dank. Taste is nice and mango/floral solidly good. palate is nice as the mouth-feel for a DIPA isn’t at all syrupy, It’s bitter then sweet then bitter-sweet. over-all a step up from Hop Wallop but barely. 50/51-51/50......six one half dozen the other.

Draft in Lancaster. New standard for double IPA. Hoppy, nice unfiltered haze, with a wonderful flavor. the 8.7 alcohol is completely hidden by the hops. Not bitter, just a perfect citrus aroma and taste. lighter than hop wallop, a good thing. one of the best beers i have had in my 40 years of drinking beers. Perfection attained.

On tap at Global Brew. Pours a bright clear golden with a full white head. Sweet grapefruit aroma. Taste is tart pink grapefruit, pine cones and sweet pale malt. Pretty hoppy, but very well balanced. Nicely done.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazed light orange,light head,little lace. Sweet ripe pungent fruits in aroma as well as some sweet caramel, bready malts. Same in taste with some resin/pine flavor/ bittering. Drinks pretty easy yet rich. Smooth with some sweet maltyness. This kind of reminds me of Hopslam I could like this better though. I like this beer but miss hop wallop, it was an inspiring beer for me when I first tried it.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2014 pours a cloudy light orange color. almost looks like it could be a white IPA. decent head that thins to a white sheet. good looking beer. Aroma is tons of citrus, tons of tropical fruits, some sweet caramel. Very intense, very pungent aroma. Taste follows suit. very hop forward of course, it is filled with citrus, tropical fruits, pine, floral notes. Very good DIPA.

12 ounce bottle from four pack. Bitter hop bomb that then becomes big tropical fruit bomb. Some cat urine in there, but in a good way. Tasty.
