3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours copper w/ a white head that leaves some lacing. The aroma is an intriguing blend of malt & hops. The taste is filled w/ subtle hops but they are light & the beer is quite drinkable. A very nice pale!

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.

Excellent pale ale. Knock the edge off the hop devil and you have this one. Great color and flavor, grape fruity hop, a little citrusy and floral, but not to the point where it gets annoying, good session beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear, classic golden color with a one-finger, creamy, antique white head. The head dissipates too quickly, or I would’ve scored its appearance a 4. A well, balanced malt/floral hop bouquet is noted. A relatively rich mouthfeel yields to some mild astringency late. There’s something peculiar lying a the flavor’s foundation that disrupts the malt and hop characters. Almost like petroleum jelly. Nearly flavorless, yet has a distinctive flavor. It’s not off putting. Just disrupts what would otherwise be the natural flavors of the ale. It takes on the hop character and bitterness of a session IPA, but with a smidgeon better malt backbone.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an orange-gold with a minimal pale beige head. Nose is a lot of grassy noble hops up front, a fruity-piney perfume, some bready, biscuity malt, and lightest citrus. Taste is mostly bitter, without a lot of sweetness, though some develops with a little warmth. Palate is softer but slightly tingly carbonation, light bodied, with a bitter tea-like finish. This was a nice refreshing beer on another record heat day in the deadzone. A solid session beer with plenty of character.
