3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A nice if ordinary pale ale. Citrus aroma and taste is well balanced with the sweetness of the malts. The taste and overall quality of the beer lacks a crispness that I prefer in this style.

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.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A coworker brought a 6er of this to our recent beer club meeting. Poured a slightly hazy dark gold with foamy white head. Aroma is extremely floral and lemony. Flavor totally reflects aroma. To me it tasted like someone literally took rose petals and soaked them in a keg of a very light apa. Almost a soapy lavender flavor to it. Overall, not really my thing. Very different from your typical apa.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma is grainy, with some light citrus hops. Flavor is very simple, some sweet malt and finishes with piney hop bitterness. Overall it is watery and light bodied, also light on flavor. Simple and easy drinking, but boring.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Midtown Wine and Spirits, in Nashville. Pours a clear, weak-tea/pale copper with a pillowy off-white head; this is easily the clearest pale I’ve ever seen. The nose is of dank citrus and dried grass hop notes along with a slightly biscuity and sweet malt backing. Light to medium-bodied and silky while on-the-tongue, the palate transitions to a pleasant, moderately bitter finish that lingers nicely. The flavor amps up the same qualities found on the nose, with citrus, somewhat grassy and piny hop notes dancing along with toasty pale malt to create one of the tastiest packaged pale ales I’ve sampled in a long time. This is a beer that I could stick with throughout an entire evening. For me, that is among the highest compliments I can pay to a session beer. This is good stuff.

12 oz bottle. Pours a golden copper color with a white head and a little lacing. Aroma is hoppy, citrus, grapefruit. Medium body on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is sweet, a nice balance of malt and citurs hops. Maybe a litte summit hops. A nice light bitter finish.

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.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Solid pale ale, fluffy white head, pine hops with some citrus. A liitle bit of dirty socks in the aroma. Aftertaste is pretty short but overall a lot of nice flavors. However by the end just wasn’t too excited to keep drinking.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This one pours a crystal clear light red to deep orange and head is off white and lasting. Nose lend emmense toasty, biscuity, bready and earthy malts. Hop nose is mostly citrus, fruits and light resins. Flavor is some earthy hood then come in with toasted and biscuit malts and finishes out with mixed citrus hops. Medium body and crisp mouthfeel. easy to drink. Earthy hop and malt forefront. Not bad. not life changing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Kind of creamy, malty, and hoppy. Some spiced and roasted malts. Enjoyable. Slightly bland but a good brew.
