3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Fermentoren Aarhus. Pours a clear amber with a medium sized, white, long lasting head. Aroma is not very intense. Bitter, grassy, piney hops, sweeter pale malts and some citrus. Taste is pretty bitter up front, very nice pine, slight malty sweetness, but just a plain, crisp pale ale. Medium carbonation, smooth but crisp body.

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!

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...

3.8 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.

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours copper/orange with a medium-sized off-white head. Aroma and flavor are of bready, caramel malt with some fruit, lots of hop elements -- floral, peppery spice, pine, some citrus. Medium mouthfeel. Great APA -- very tasty and drinkable. Another winner from Victory.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Enjoy by Aug 17, 2011 but no idea when it was bottled. Poured into a DFH tulip glass a clear, darker than expected copper orange color with a 2 finger antique white head of both large and small bubbles. The aroma is not overly fruity or piney but has subtle hints of orange and grapefruit rind. Medium mouthfeel. The taste is more subtle than I thought it would be with a light sweetness up front with a light/medium amount of citrus bitterness that quickly fades. Mild lingering bitterness. Some lace. Overall, not bad but I was hoping for a wee bit more of a pop in flavor from this.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle served in shaker- poured an evenly turbid brazen copper color, extremely thin white ring around the glass for a head, next to zero carbonation, no lacing, sits very still upon the vessel. Aroma of pine and citrus hops by the gravity barrel load. Hits the mouth with a wide medium body, malt was just slightly caramelized, hops come crashing in the middle, finish is harshly acidic yet very enjoyable. Toes the line of IPA, but whatever you want to call it, it’s damn good!

UPDATED: SEP 10, 2011 Bottle from whole foods in Allen. This beer pours a golden amber with a thin off white head. The aromas are natural gas, citrus, dough. The mouthfeel is dry and slightly watery with a medium body. Cheers!
