I hoppy pale ale for sure. Some dark, earthy flavors. It’s a bit dank. Could stand to be a bit more crisp. Not a pussy beer though. I love Victory for a making a pale with some real flavor.

Lighter amber with dense white head. Orange/citrus pine nose. Hops not a prominent in bitterness, malt is fuller than nose. Light palate. Hops provide a bit green hop flavor.

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.

Light orange pour, thin tight head. Grapefruit in the nose. Lightly bitter on the tongue. Toasted malt plays second fiddle to hop bitterness on the way out.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep gold with a moderate white head. Aroma of parsley, pine, light citrus, lightly toasted bread, and some caramel. Flavor of citrus, grass, herbs, toasted bread, and moderate bitterness. Finishes with an earthy bitterness and some lingering grass and citrus hop qualities. Medium to light bodied and quite dry. Decent pale ale.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a medium-dark orange with slightly off white head. Head fades too quickly for top marks, but the color is very nice. Aroma is very nice, with an orangey citrus note from the hops. Flavor is drier than I expected. The citrus aroma of the hops takes a background role in the flavor, giving the hoppiness a more bitter character. Overall, a very nice APA.

aroma is excellent balance of near caramel malts and lightly grassy hops. nice toasty malt character to boot. appearance is well polished deeper gold with active carb and filmy head, no legs. flavor is excellent toast near butterscotch with pleasant vegetative note tangled in. excellent balances abounds with unique character to both sides.

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.
