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?

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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A solid draft beer. Reminds me of house beers from Iron Hill Brewery. Slightly subdued aroma and carbonation. Medium amber color. Dry, hoppy mouth feel. Slightly bitter finish. Good, not great.

UPDATED: JUN 20, 2012 20 oz mug pour off tap. golden copper in the glass, scant head. Hoppy nose. Assertive hops on the tongue balanced with a good malt backbone. Hops become more prominent on the finish but not IPAish. Nicely balanced and drinkable.

Kind of creamy, malty, and hoppy. Some spiced and roasted malts. Enjoyable. Slightly bland but a good brew.
