Close but no cigar! Another Pliny knockoff. They say they used fresh hole hops but I dont taste them. Good for the price.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle - Barrel & Barley Craft Beer Market in Woodstock, Georgia.
Appearance: Pale copper-hued body, a bit hazy, with almost an inch of whitish foam.
Smell: Chiefly hoppy in the nose, sporting notes of melon, citrus, fresh herb, riding atop the softly bready, lightly doughy, lightly honeyish malts.
Taste: Honey-toned malts blended with the melony, citrusy, floral hop flavors. Bready base malts, a little doughy. There’s an encroaching dank resinous quality. Medium-high bitterness. Some semblance of a renewed honey taste underneath the hops. An alcoholic warmth and a little boozy bent precedes the resiny, bitter finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation which has some life to it.
Overall: It’s fine, acceptable, but it’s just good to see ole Victory making the effort.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce bottle. Pale yellow gold color. Small fluffy white head. Nice clinging lace. Fragrant pine hop aroma with notes of sweet honeyish malt. Bittersweet citrus hops are big and bold right from to go. There is an underlying rich maltiness that carries the huge hop bill at first. The complex spicy hop bitterness dominates the palate. There is a tropical fruit malt character in the mid taste and a chewy resin hoppiness in the finish. Outstanding.

På flaska från systemet. Gyllengul färg men en vit fingerhög skumkrona. Stor doft av sommaräng. Smakar sött blommigt med en stor beska som ligger kvar länge i gommen.

Taste is complex, with pineapple, orange, bready notes with a hint of pine on the back end. This is one amazing DIPA get it. Heady/Pliny you have some competition.
