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.

Pretty impressive APA from Victory. Had on tap at Local Option in Chicago. Very floral aroma, with some citrus to pack in the extra punch. Resin, grass, and spritzy carbonation send this one home.

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, aroma is citrus, resin, nut, and a bit of grain. Taste is citrus, resin, slight but and malt. Nice dry bitter finish. A quite hoppy pale but very good.

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.
