Pour orange off white head. Aroma earth, caramel, pine, floral, grassy hops. Taste caramel, pine, floral and grapefruit, resiny hops, not enough malt backbone. MF medium body light fizzy carb. Pretty blah.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Little Woodrows. Pours transparent gold. Very light and drinkable, crisp carbonation and weakly citrus flavors. Easy to drink, but seems watery to this IPA fan. Still, a great session ale if you want a light pale ale with some citrus flavor.

On tap at Proof, advertised as Victory 15th anniversary, pour pale later, a little tan lacing, weak hoppiness, very dry, grassy, a bit gritty, not great, but spectacular for an anniversary. Boring.

A really good and refreshing American pale ale. Up front profile is of sharp and fresh hops, perhaps mostly Cascade. The beginning will remind you of a beer that will be either much heavier or sharper, or more alcoholic. But the finish is very smooth and clean, surprisingly so considering the rich complexity up front. And it is only 5.2%, somewhat weak for most IPAs or PAs. A very fine and quaffable session beer.

Nice and hoppy but not overwhelming. Citrus and floral notes. Very drinkable, really enjoyed this one.

Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a slight head. Aroma is mild pine hops. Taste is slightly coppery with pine hops. Creamy-ish finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear, light, golden amber, with a thin, slightly off white head. Aroma has caramel, herbal hops, grapefruit, honey, and hints of bread. The taste is sharp in pine and grapefruit, still with a good deal of herbal tones, along with caramel undertones. It has a fresh, almost minty flavor that is noticeable throughout. Dry and pretty bitter, with a short aftertaste of pine and hops. More light in body, with a thin texture, with above average carbonation. Its alright, but I’m not very impressed.

Light orange color with small white head and minimal lacing. Aroma and flavor are all malt, amber, light caramels, with grapefruity hops. Okay overall

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Was informed about this one by my friend Bill Ellis. Great to see a new beer from Victory that is not > 8% alcohol. This one is extremely floral and fruity with a very crisp and slightly bitter palate. Color is extremely clear and has a unique shade of orange and gold hues. This beer is predominantly hoppy.
