Very dry and slightly bitter. A very good pale ale. Full bodied and utterly refreshing. Another winner from Victory.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an amber color with an off-white head. Pretty strong aroma of citrus and pine hops and some caramel malts. Flavor wasn’t as strong as I was hoping. Citrus and pine hops up front with not much on the finish. A little disappointing.

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.

Translucent copper with a lasting beige head,
Aroma: sweet pale and caramel malt, fresh juicy citrus piney hops.

on tap at buckeye beer engine 19Feb2012, nose is mostly hoppy and the color of the beer makes me think there is more malt here, and tasting reveals exactly that, in true victory form they balance the hoppy nose out nicely with some malt back.. this would do nicely on a brisk spring day.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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

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!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle that says "enjoy by Sept 19 2011." Hmm. Pours a clouded light amber with a white head. Aroma is honeyish at first, some stale floral hop aroma, stale biscuit. Flavor is biscuit, again rather stale, light honey, stale herbal and citrus hops. This doesn’t seem to have held up that well.
