3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap flight. Light amber pour with no head in this glass. Lightly carbonated. Aroma of Earthy hops. Flavor tastes like chewing a mouthful of fresh hops with a teaspoon of potting soil! Aromatic, Earthy, and very tasty. Bitter flavors linger in the mouth. Moderate palate. A nice, hoppy, American pale.

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
On tap at Pizza Daddy. Very pleasant surprise. If I lived here in PA would be a great session beer. Hoppier than many pales, a little thin with moments of hoppy edge at first. Light in body for a pale ale. almost no head.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear copper body with a small white head. The aroma is mostly sweet, medium caramel malt, with some light bread notes and some floral and slightly citrusy hops. Pretty malty flavor with some more floral hops on the moderately bitter finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours copper with a off white head. Aroma of caramel malt, spice, earthy hops, a bit of biscuit and dull pine. Flavors of light sweet caramel/biscuity malt, bitter tinges here and there, toasty throughout. Even carbonation and a nice balance of sweet/malty/bitter throughout with a malty finish that holds a nice creeping bitter end. Overall, a pretty nice session beer.

3.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A Gorgeous, floral-hopped pale ale. Clean finish, good mouth feel, lots of refreshing citrus and (dare I say) geranium on the palate. A top quality ale (and easily my favorite) from the solid brewery that is Victory. Akin to similar hopped brews such as Daisy Cutter and Gumball Head.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours an orangish red color with a white head. Smells of pine trees. Taste is kinda bitter with some floral notes. I kinda really like this one for some reason. Not sure what it is.

Bottle poured an nice cloudy light brown with yellow hues, light white head that dissipated quickly, aroma is kind of herbal/woody and taste is hoppy but not overwhelming. Another nice offering from Victory.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
This pale ale poured a nice golden colour with a medium sized, white, foamy head. Very small amount of lacing. To the nose there are scents of citrus hops, cut grass and pineapple. First sip was very hoppy/bitter with cirtus hops attacking the tastebuds. Finish is thin with citrus and bread flavours lingering.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark orange color with a decent sized off-white head that leaves some lacing. Really nice pine and citrus aromas. Flavors are not as strong as the aromas but consist of the same, along with caramel malt. Mouthfeel is a bit light and watery with a bitter finish. Overall a very good APA, but not one of the best.
