A beautiful golden ale with a thin white head. A good classy Citra hops aroma, with light biscuitty malts, chardonnay white wine, resinous character. In mouth, a smooth biscuitty malt with good citrus pulp, citra and simcoe hop action, resinous and floral, green hops, a bit lighter than expected but very good.

Bottle from Bottledog. It pours clear amber with a medium white head. The nose is soft, toasty, brown bread, wood and earth. The taste is smooth, toasty, grain, decent bitterness, light grapefruit peel and pepper with a crisp, dry finish. Light-medium body and fine carbonation. A bit watery if truth be told. Fairly inoffensive.

Yay! A new Victory beer! 12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Market Charlottesville, VA. Pours a clear golden copper color with a medium sized bubbly tan head. Good head retention and decent lacing. Aroma of earthy and peppery hop notes, along with some floral and citrus notes as well, and faint caramel malts. The taste is pale biscuity malts, bitter herbal hop notes and a caramel finish. Medium bodied. Not my favorite Victory beer, but still solid.

Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks zvikar. Hazy golden. Hoppy aroma, citric, fruity and slightly stale. Flavor has a bit of graininess and a bitter hoppy finish, a bit citric, with light stale notes. Medium-bodied. Seems slightly past its prime, but still decent and refreshing.
