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.

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.

Kind of creamy, malty, and hoppy. Some spiced and roasted malts. Enjoyable. Slightly bland but a good brew.

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2014 An alluring aroma is backed up by the hop-forward full bodied flavour. An excellent beer that is closer to an IPA than a Pale Ale (to my taste at least).

A good pale ale. Little light on the aroma. Good hoppy flavor. I like victory quite a bit.

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.

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.
