3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
At a party so forced to drink from bottle. A clear beer, true colors were unable to be seen. Hoppy but not a huge grapefruit bite. It is there but malt flavors also come through. More bitter than I expected. There is a bitter bite in the finish. Aroma is a light citrus with biscut. Not bad but not my favorite Victory.

355ml bottle from Beerhive.
Appearance - golden with a decent head.
Nose - lemon and honey.
Taste - grapefruit pith perhaps some honey sweetness but not much.
Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a dry cleaning finish.
Overall - well not exciting but the sum of the parts is decent.

Keg at Tap East Anniversary Party. Pours clear amber with minimal head. Nose of bitter hops and a solid malt profile showing some biscuit. A bit more bitter than expected on the taste. Ok

@Weiland’s Market, Columbus. Hazy medium orange-amber, cirrus cloud head cover, fine streaks of lace. Nice looking. Rather strong for an American Pale Ale, starts with malt, but it soon succumbs to grapefruit hops that never let go. A little malt is there near the finish, but never is able to assert. For hop lovers, this is probably a good "go-to," for the rest of us, not enough to go with the hops.

Bottle beers of europe. Slightly earthy, with a peach & melon aroma and taste. The finish has a nice sharp orangey bite but softens at the last minute.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
FROM NOTES: August 23, ’12.
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a tulip.
A: Overpowering grapefruit scented hops.
A: Pours a bright copper color with a one finger off white head. Decent retention and some nice lacing throughout.
T: Bready caramel malts with a substantial grapefruit bitterness. Again, some resin, but this really seemed to aim for the grapefruit aspect of Citra hops.
P: Light to medium bodied with lively carbonation.
O: Above average pale ale.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
4th November 2013
Almost clear amber beer with a small pale cream coloured head. Palate is slightly dry with mild minerally carbonation. Dry malt with a touch of cream. Mellow hops. Mild orange peel. Finishes dry with moderate bitterness. Okay but I wonder if this is a little ’grey market’ aged tiredness.
