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

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Excellent pale ale. Knock the edge off the hop devil and you have this one. Great color and flavor, grape fruity hop, a little citrusy and floral, but not to the point where it gets annoying, good session beer.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Golden appearance with a thin white head. Aroma is mostly hops, very piney. Flavor is strong piney hops with a very clean finish. Slight malt sweetness on the tongue, but overall just a very strong pale ale. One of the better examples that I’ve found recently.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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).

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle poured a rich golden hue w/ a fizzy white head w/ minor sticky lacing. Moderate citrus hop aroma. Initial flavor is a light sweet w/ a moderate bitter finish. Tastes are grapefruit, lemon, orange, and straw. Light to medium bodied, watery texture, lively carbonation, and a light astringent feel to the finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle pours a clear orange with big white head and some lacing. Aroma is full of grapefruit and pine, with some floral hops and biscuit, and just enough caramel malts to keep it balanced. Medium body with average carbonation and a slightly slick mouthfeel. Kudos to Victory for crafting another enjoyable one.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2015 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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Rated from notes taken 5 Jan 2013 and 6 Aug 2011 -- A very nice Pale Ale, that I would not mind drinking on a regular basis. Enough to make you want to drink it, restrained enough to allow you to drink several.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The pour is a clear, orangey-amber color with a moderately full, white, pillowy, frothy head which settled to a very thin froth and leaves tight, lace rings. The nose is toasted grain and caramel, very floral, faint citrus, and slight resins. The flavor is slightly better with more toasted caramel, toasted grains still, slightly resinous, still floral, and some citrus. The palate is lively, light to moderate, and a bit watery. The finish is moderately bitter, resinous, and full of lasting grain notes. Fairly generic APA, drinkable and just enough sweetness to balance to the prominent bitterness.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle marked "enjoy by 7.8.11." Pours clear bright orange and lively with a medium foamy eggshell head. The aromas are sweet papaya and guava, moco moco (a Bolivian fruit), sugar, and grass. NIce tropical fruity notes here. The flavor is sweet funky malt and fruit, mild bitter grass, and pine; a touch one-dimensional. Very smooth and drinkable. A nice, sessionable beer with great aroma, but whose flavor didn’t quite live up. Still, a solid brew.
