3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Fresh, pungent citrus hop aroma; orange peel and tangerine. Really fresh and surprising. sweet and high-alpha. Flowery perfume at the end.
The appearance is clear yellow-orange; scant, slushy head.
Flavor is a combination of flowery rose petals and ripe tangerines. Orange blossom and juniper. Very sweet indeed, with no bitterness to speak of. Just this side of cloying, with sugary malts, but never oversteps its boundaries.
The feel is a smooth, buttery texture. A sweet, highly accessible pale ale. Flower and citrus, like a spring morning. Easily drinkable.

UPDATED: SEP 10, 2011 Bottle from whole foods in Allen. This beer pours a golden amber with a thin off white head. The aromas are natural gas, citrus, dough. The mouthfeel is dry and slightly watery with a medium body. Cheers!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Serving: Draft at Fireworks. It pours a light orange color with a decent foamy white head. The nose has a bit of earthy, citric hops, but otherwise it’s fairly light. The flavor has a lot of dank herbals in a rather light taste. Not much in the way of malt. Light in body with lower, soft carbonation leading to a dry finish. A nice light easy drinker.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Pours a copper body with a white head and light retention. Mild herbal and grass tones. Light soft hoppiness that victory is just know for in these parts. Soft and clean with a mild herbal green spiciness. A hint of spruce and juniper. Solid APA.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This beer was highly ranked, i found it to be lacking. The aroma is nothing to write home about and the color is run of the mill golden. Taste in the beginning is crisp but soon has a funky, off quality that continues in the aftertaste. Overall this beer did nothing but disappoint which is odd considering that Victory is one of my favorite breweries. I would not buy it again, nor would I recommend purchasing this to anyone.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a deep golden with a small creamy white head. Aroma is balanced citric and piney hops with a very sweet honey and biscuity and caramel malt backbone. Flavor starts with the same sweet caramel and bready notes, picking up some light pine and citric hop notes before a smooth clean lightly bitter finish. Medium body and a sharp carbonation. A good pale ale, balanced and fresh, smooth and quaffable.

Fantastic APA! Pours a clean, orange color with thin white head that fades quickly. Aroma is light citrus, grassy notes, and cereal malts. Taste is floral, honey, citrusy, with light grassiness. This is very fresh hop forward APA that is simply terrific. Finishes clean and provides a full bodied mouthfeel. Definitely a solid offering from Victory.
