4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
NICE golden copper look to the brew with a fading off white head. moderate and quenching body with lines of slow forming bubbles. beautiful sweet young pine aroma that is full in the taste with a dash of flower,ivy and wood stem. flavor initially seems to come in under the body, this brew has a lingering sweetish bitter finish with a dash of wood and grapefruit rind. a great brew probably more due to superior brewmanship.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This belongs in a good group of Pale Ales. Victory has made a solid beer here. Copper pour with an average white head. Balanced grassy hops combined with caramel malts. Simple, but well executed.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap. Fluffy off-white head and a coppery brown hue. Floral and light citrus hops in the aroma. Bit of a grainy note in the flavor with some pine and grapefruit hops, but very tame and a slightly odd sourish/yeasty finish. Bit messy. Thinner body with soft carbonation.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask at Commercial Tap House. Light hazy yellowish orange appearance, nice head. Aroma is grapefruit and a touch of grassy hops. Flavor is a match. Light sweetness from slightly crackery malts balances the bitterness of the hops well. Nice beer. Fairly delicate, glad I got to try it on cask.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a dark gold with a cream-colored, large-grained head. Nose is lime, ruby red grapefruit, and rosemary. Drinks astringent, with strong hops notes underpinned with some roast malt. Definite floral notes on the close, along with a clean finish. An excellent example of the style.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours like a stronger looking pale lager. Clean fresh sharper pilsner aroma, almost pierces. Oooo, borders on IPA territory. Bitter strong ipa/pils combo. Hah, they use the word lattitude in the description. Somewhat astringent lingering finish.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange gold pour with a mild floral, pine and currant aroma.
A very nice orange peel and hop taste with a bitter finish.
The aroma tricked me into thinking this would have more bite.
