2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing.
Body is medium amber.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (resin, grapefruit), with notes of vegetable matter, rubber, diacetyl, perfume/cosmetics.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately to heavily bitter, unclean.
Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, moderately astringent.
Honest to god, this is awful, there is just no other way to describe it. Highly flawed nose full of unpleasant off notes and sourish and dirty and astringent in the mouth...there really is nothing good about this. Victory occasionally pulls off a decent brew, but this sure as hell ain’t one of them. Drain pour and absolutely wince-inducing.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a crystal clear copper golden color with an eggshell colored head. Grass, citrus, apricot, rye, and toasted malt on the nose. All blending well and none dominating the other. Mildly oily, a little hot, with some mild carbknation scrub. Flavors approximate the nose nearly dead on. I’m getting quite a bit of rye. I failed to review the ingredients, so I don’t know if rye is one of them.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Brouwerij Lane, 2014 with Mosaic and Citra. Pours clear amber with very small head. Aroma is lychee, cotton candy, fragrant honey, candied orange, pine. Taste is juicy and quaffable cantaloupe and honeydew with some breadiness and toasted grains fading into grapefruit peel, orange juice, and moderate astringent pine. Very nice especially considering that this is roughly a few months old, I assume. Tasty.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Clear amber with a fine and lasting white head. Instant catty hop impression in the aroma: green onion, burnt pineapple, sweat, urinal cake / chlorine. Malt is lightly toasty and toffee-ish, fermentation seemingly clean. Medium body, sweet and sugary and bitter in the mouth, green, soggy, mossy, grassy, etc., pretty much *the* character I dislike in wet hop beer. Silty / chalky texture in a short, flabby finish.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours light copper with a one finger head with pretty nice lacing. Aroma is of fresh citrus juice, floral hops, pine, grassy hops, dankness, melon, herbs, and some light bread malts. Taste is about the same as the aroma with a lot of freshly cut grass, melon, and fresh citrus notes. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, moderately bitter, medium-long finish. Overall, a tasty, very fresh tasting wet hop ale.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Interesting lil thing. Never thought I would type these words but I swear it smells just like I cut my grass and am in the process of bagging up the trimmings. Very odd. Flavor is very subtle and in that "is it a pale ale or ipa" category however the cut grass on the nose distracts from that and is the dominating character.
