Tap; pour is honey golden with an average white head that retains on the average side. This brew has a nice floral hop note on the nose, with a bit of biscuits and a touch of sweetness. The brew starts on the sweet side, with biscuits, honey and florals rounding it out. Bitterness is subdued. This is a nice brew

Wow, what a pleasant surprise! Pours gold with a white head. BIG citrusy nose. Taste is sweet, bitter, and dry. There’s a nice tropical fruit flavor on the back of the tongue that sticks around for a bit. I would say this rivals Zombie Dust for big, flavorful APAs.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear golden amber with a pale off white head, head fades kinda quickly leaving excellent lacing, minimally viscous... Aroma is distinctly victory, anyone who has spent significant time knows the aroma of the brewery/brewpub, and this beer captures that aroma in the bottle... Mild toasty malts under some light citrus fruits and a distinct fruity pebbles aroma, lots of aroma for 5%... Hops are a bit more grassy than citrusy in the taste though some distinct citrus fruits are present, some mild toasty malts, no real sweetness... Friends of mine referred to this a Hop Wallop Light, but i didnt find it to be as citrusy or sweet, though the aroma and dry finish are similar... Exceptionally drinkable on cask, and very drinkable from the bottle, very lively out of the bottle, quite dry in the finish, medium to medium light body... I was impressed by this... If only we could get a couple varietal pilseners in a bottle from time to time now...

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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle. Orange color, great head, lots of lace up the sides of the pint glass. Aroma is very floral hops, perfume-like and reminiscent of the floral/perfume aspect I get from Sierra Nevada amped up to 10. Flavor is more of the same. Overall a solid pale ale but it is also sort of one-dimensional and becomes overwhelming.
Serving type: bottle
