Good American pale ale. I like pale ales alot and this one is not weak but it also doesn’t go above and beyond. With that said this is an excellent pale ale, if this was more redaly available I would buy this beer instead of sierra neveda.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Long Island, NY - 12 oz bottle poured a wonderful slightly hazy golden color with moderate head an very nice lacing. Aroma was of pine, slight citrus and hops. As a witbier lover I have slowly been easing myself into hoppier brews. Victory is usually solid and so was this brew. By FAR the best pale ale I've ever had. Taste was completely balanced with hops and malt and a slight tang. Yes, I want more!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12Oz. Bottle - best by Oct 18,2011:
With a thick, foamy, off-white head this pours a nice copper color. Definite pine notes up front w/ citrus and some spice; not much malt. Nice rounded mouthfeel, on the lighter side of medium in body, crisp/light carbonation. Very nice, but a little watery near the finish. First taste was full of hops. This mellows on drinking, with lingering bitterness leaving me wanting another sip. Biscuit malts balance the hops. Excellent APA, in my opinion and another great beer from Victory.

Decent head with body. Nice golden color. Nice citrus aroma. Strong citrus taste but a little more carbonation than expected that takes away from the taste. Overall a quality brew.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
I really like the aroma and the appearance of this beer. The beer smells of a damp forest. The lacing is off white, sticky and the head is rich. The beer falls flat on the palate. It falls flat and leaves a dull bitter taste. I bit of a disappointment.

Another good Victory beer. This isn't one I'd buy on its own though(got it in a sampler). Good and smooth with a hoppy bite, but there's a sourness I don't quite like.
