COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Three hop varieties have added tremendous zest to this Pale Ale. After a soft and full floral nose, those juicy hops saturate the middle of this amber ale with more flowery fullness. The malt body punctuates the lingering hop richness of this one-of-a-kind ale.

UPDATED: AUG 13, 2014 grassy, citrus and earth aromas and flavors supported by a great malt back bone. very drinkable and refreshingly hoppy.

Orangy coppery pour with medium head. Malty aroma with a hoppy floral and fruity smell. This one reminds me a lot of the Manayunk wet hopped brew, with the caramel malty flavor backed up by an earthy, sort of fruity yet peaty hop, as such. Complex and well balanced, I had several pints of this.

UPDATED: NOV 16, 2006 Draught @ Victory. Very appetizing look with golden-amber color and light head. Aroma is sweet and lightly hopped-up. Taste is smooth, not as bitter as most dry-hopped beers, but a very nice change of pace. Will have to try this one again after sampling some other wet-hop beers to get a better feel.

KSBF 2006. Clear pale metallic-orange body with a frothy white head. Fresh kettle hop smell and a warm worty underbelly with notes of lightly toasted bread. Aroma evokes brew day. Fresh and bright hoppy flavor with good pale malt balance. A nice harvest pale ale at peak freshness.

Tap at the brewery. As a homebrewer, I am so envious of how clear Victory’s beers are, and this is no exception. Nice pale ale balance with malt and hops distributed nicely. Easily sessionable. Better than the Harvest Pils.

PorterPounder (5451) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 23, 2011
Tallahassee, Fl - Proof - on tap. Pours a dark copper with a sticky off white head. Fresh spruce-like aroma - hint of chocolate. Flavor is citrus oriented with loads of fresh grapefruit like citrus bitterness, some maple syrup sweetness, a little bit of caramel stickiness. Thick, rich mouthfeel. Solid.

Voodoo (300) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 15, 2012
The label noted Victory Harvest Southern Hemisphere Ale......wonderful full copper colored pale ale aroma with very malty notes and slight hop aroma.....the taste was heavy in bittering and flavor time hops with mild aroma hopping....a truly excellent harvest with the accent on bittering and a flavor which hangs around a bit.

On tap at Kennett. Golden amber in color with a little white head. Hoppy and sweet aroma. Floral and piney hops. Smooth and grassy hoppy flavor. Not too much of a bitter flavor though. Caramel notes. This beer is wet hopped. Medium bodied. Finish is hoppy. Nice.
