Crisp, clean, and pure, seriously, one of the purest tasting beers I have had, with the signature Victory hop flavor they have. Very nice, excellent PA, great summer brew.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is a groovy pale ale. I’m not a huge IPA nerd myself, so I generally tend to gravitate towards the pale ales and appreciate their mellow bitterness and great aromatics more than harshly hopped IPA.
It’s got a great clear, light-amber body with two fingers of marshmallow-white head. Good retention and a spotty lace.
Smells like floral, citrussy, piney hops on top of dry biscuity malt. Straightforward and damn good.
Hop flavor hits up front, but quickly give way to bready malt and a bit of implied grapefruit from the olfactory. Clean, bitter finish. Impressive malt presence without becoming sweet and juicy or losing the bitter dryness. Full and prickly carbonation feels just right for this refresher.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours with a mild head. The hops were dominant in this beer, but it was refreshing.

Tastes close to New Belgium Ranger IPA. Would qualify as an IPA in a few circles.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Herbal, citrus fruit aroma. Flavors are herbal, citrus, and earthy. Nice, round mouthfeel. Honest and good.

12 oz bottle from FLBC. Pours like an American pale ale, has enough hops to make it pretty much enjoyable. Went down in about 5 minutes on a 95* day, so I’d say this is sessionable. A Victory indeed.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle to glass mug. Pours a nice clear copper / amber color with a medium off white head. Good lacing. Lots of nice crisp hop flavors. Medium body, but heavy enough to avoid the dreaded "watery" tag. Really nice summer beer.

This beer is really well balanced with a bit of herbal character as well. Finishes nice and crisp, goes down easy. Very good beer

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very light in color, alcohol, and aroma. Slight citrusy characters similar to the Hop Wallop. Nice bitter grapefruit flavor that is very very crisp. As soon the bitter flavor hits the tongue it virtually disappears. Very nice drinkable beer.
