Pours an a nice clear amber color with some off white head and good lacing. The aroma has some great herbal hoppiness with a trace of malt which is very pleasant. This beer tastes very good with balance of herbal hops and slight maltiness. A very drinakble beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A solid draft beer. Reminds me of house beers from Iron Hill Brewery. Slightly subdued aroma and carbonation. Medium amber color. Dry, hoppy mouth feel. Slightly bitter finish. Good, not great.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
DRAFT. Nose is pleasing citrus, pine, resin and toast. Flavor is very tropical with soft caramel and a touch of pine. Finish is light bitterness with a fair amount of sweetness. Carbonation is low. Clean malt character backed with plenty of American style hops that punch in the middle but leave before balancing the malt sweetness and nuttiness.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a light amber with a small head, Mild aroma of malt and possibly tropical fruits. Hop-forward, but not as much as an IPA. Notes of spruce and a sharper taste of something that is not in west coast pale ales. Full bodied, but not a long finish. All in all, a good ale.

Wasn’t sure why they decided to bottle Coors Light under a different label. This is something to truly avoid.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance- Golden colored, some head, not much lacing on the glass.
Smell- Some citrusy hops with a malty undertone.
Taste- Very balanced. Citrus flavors balanced by a solid malt backbone.
Mouthfeel- As drinkable as a hoppy craft brew gets. Nice body, nice carbonation. Good hop flavor, but doesn’t destroy my palate.
Overall- Another quality offering from Victory. A very good pale ale. Definately not one of those APAs that are basically IPAs, so do not expect a hopbomb. Just a quality beer you can drink a six pack over the course of a night and not regret it in the morning.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A few bottles purchased at brewery back in March 2011. Overall, this was an excellent brew, although it was as hoppy as quite a few of the IPAs out there. Pours with a copper-colored body and a respectable two-finger head. The lacing is fairly tight and sticky. The aroma is surprisingly powerful and florally, with hints to citrus fruits and pine. The taste is simply awesome and relatively bitter, yet the bitterness dissolves quickly in the finish. Flavors like pine and grapefruit accompany the dry mouth feel. Overall, this is a remarkably tasty, aromatic and refreshing pale ale and one that I will certainly enjoy drinking over and over again.
