3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice easy drinking but hoppy beer. Pours a pale yellow with a slight orange tint and thin White carbonated head. Good retention. Hoppy aroma with notes of grapefruit. Moderately sweet/malt flavor with earthy, herbal hops. Balanced. Almost an IPA. Not bad.

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.

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.

Pours with a mild head. The hops were dominant in this beer, but it was refreshing.

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.
