3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The Biscuit malt tone meets abundant hops but I sense an imbalance here. Our American micros seem to do a fine job at producing bitter pales with coppery like tones but I wish they would focus on overall quality instead of appeasing the hopheads (yes I love IPAs). As for the water, the palate is rather wet to showcase their local watershed.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle pours a clear orange with big white head and some lacing. Aroma is full of grapefruit and pine, with some floral hops and biscuit, and just enough caramel malts to keep it balanced. Medium body with average carbonation and a slightly slick mouthfeel. Kudos to Victory for crafting another enjoyable one.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden/amber pour with a small white head. Earthy hop aromas with notes of pine and grass. Flavor is dry and hop forward. Decent brew but not as complex as others that I have had.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Golden appearance with a thin white head. Aroma is mostly hops, very piney. Flavor is strong piney hops with a very clean finish. Slight malt sweetness on the tongue, but overall just a very strong pale ale. One of the better examples that I’ve found recently.

Big hoppy brew and nutty flavours. Chewy to the end. Sweetish and good to the last drop.

Poured from bottle. Grapefruit hop aroma. Nice looking amber, lacing. Same grapefruit hop in flavor dominates. Sweet malt flavor in front, dry in back. Crisp, clean feel. Just right amount of carbonation. Good finish. Great beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2012 On cask at porter. Pours amber with thin white head. Aromas of grass & manure (not pejorative). Medium-bodied with a lot of green notes & dirt. Good, dirt qualities are ones I like in wine & rarely find in beer. Interesting, good.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft. Top notch pale ale. Citrus and earthy hops with grain/bready malts. Balanced, tasty, clean mouthfeel. Just the right amount of flavor but still light and very drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep copper orange color with big head. Aroma is citrusy, spices, caramel. Taste is citrus, a bit zesty, a bit caramel and pine, grapefruit and forest tree, overall rather light, but not watery. Very easy to drink, quite clean taste. A bit underwhelming though, I expected more. Still ok.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle poured a rich golden hue w/ a fizzy white head w/ minor sticky lacing. Moderate citrus hop aroma. Initial flavor is a light sweet w/ a moderate bitter finish. Tastes are grapefruit, lemon, orange, and straw. Light to medium bodied, watery texture, lively carbonation, and a light astringent feel to the finish.
