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.

(bottle). This a really nice APA. Clear golden-amber with enough carbonation to enhance the palate. The favor is a mild balanced malt with subtle sweetness. Perfect to session or enjoy just one for fun. I really enjoyed this on a hot spring day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
This pale ale poured a nice golden colour with a medium sized, white, foamy head. Very small amount of lacing. To the nose there are scents of citrus hops, cut grass and pineapple. First sip was very hoppy/bitter with cirtus hops attacking the tastebuds. Finish is thin with citrus and bread flavours lingering.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark orange color with a decent sized off-white head that leaves some lacing. Really nice pine and citrus aromas. Flavors are not as strong as the aromas but consist of the same, along with caramel malt. Mouthfeel is a bit light and watery with a bitter finish. Overall a very good APA, but not one of the best.

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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear copper body with a small white head. The aroma is mostly sweet, medium caramel malt, with some light bread notes and some floral and slightly citrusy hops. Pretty malty flavor with some more floral hops on the moderately bitter finish.

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.
