3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The pour is a clear, orangey-amber color with a moderately full, white, pillowy, frothy head which settled to a very thin froth and leaves tight, lace rings. The nose is toasted grain and caramel, very floral, faint citrus, and slight resins. The flavor is slightly better with more toasted caramel, toasted grains still, slightly resinous, still floral, and some citrus. The palate is lively, light to moderate, and a bit watery. The finish is moderately bitter, resinous, and full of lasting grain notes. Fairly generic APA, drinkable and just enough sweetness to balance to the prominent bitterness.

12 ounce bottle. Thanks Andrew! Pours a slightly cloudy darker gold with a nice fluffy off-white head. Aroma of florals, citrus, and malt. Taste is citrus hops, florals, malt, grass, and spice. Excellent APA.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured from a 12oz bottle and served in a pint glass. This beer has a very pleasant nose with a crisp citrusy aroma. It pours a dark golden color. It tastes slightly malty with a clean aftertaste that matcher the aroma. Overall its not a bad beer, but not likely a beer I will go out of my way to have again.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Medium gold, white head.
The aroma is quite malty, citrusy hop notes, caramel, spruce, something somewhat robust or fecal, apricots.
Dry, medium body and bitterness, balanced CO2.
Malty taste, a bit of hops, yeast, caramel, earthy, spruce. Like a well hopped lager?

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a nice amber with a medium offwhite lasting head, with very good head retention and lacing to the end. Aroma of caramel malt, citrus, orange fruity esters fill the senses as well as some good citrus piney hops. Taste is caramel malt, fruity citrus notes, some yeast and citrus piney hops. Palate is a medium body with good carbonation. Finish is sweet caramel malt, fruity citrus flavor, some slight orange peel, ending with some good citrus piney hops bitterness for balance. Overall a very good, balanced and tasty solid all around Pale ale. enjoyed this.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at the victory hall in philadelphia. Clear copper. Muted aroma of citrus, orange, spicy hops. Zesty, coriander, piney, grassy. Spicy to the point of being a saison. Mildly bitter aftertaste, mostly the zesty spice lingers. strange enough that I’m not even sure I got the right beer. The spiciness is overpowering the more I have. Quite off putting, almost feels like a mistake.

Amazing! Chose this one because my next homebrew is a pale ale, and I couldn't have made a better choice. The aroma is a little misleading- you think it's going to have a very bitter taste, but it has a great balance.

Draft to pint. Looks good; coppery with nice head. Smells fresh and golly. Tastes pretty good, especially for a PA. Feel is average. Good stuff.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle - Pours hazy orange with a one finger head. The aroma is of grapefruit hops with slight herbals. It’s moderately bitter with a subdued malt profile and a medium body. It’s pretty good but I guess I expected a little more from Victory.
