3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a crystal clear copper amber with a tall lightly creamy off-white head. The head reduced to about 1/2 inch and left a light amount of lacing. The aroma was mostly grapefruit with a little bit of a roasted malt sweetness. The initial taste was a light citrus one followed almost immediately by a mild hops bite. The citrus hops flavor becomes more prominate in the middle and fades gently into the finish

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear golden amber with a scant head of bone white foam that fell fast to a cap and ring. Left nice lace and constantly refreshed. In the right light has an orange hue.
Nose is out of this world. Citrus, lemon and orange with apple behind that. Light malt sweetness, grains and light bread. Generous spice, sweetly floral and herbal.
Taste follows the nose all the way. Citrus twang greets you first followed by a light sweet malt. Cereal grains carry it to the back with an earthly presence and a healthy helping of spice to tingle on the tongue. Ample carbonation lightens the body. Mouthfeel is sticky, creamy, crisp and light. The apple is sweet and tart like a good apple should be. Lingers whole in the aftertaste with no one characteristic able to be separated from the others. Terrific balance and the aftertaste has a slight mineral quality.
This is one of the best pale ales you will have. It’s refreshing, it’s delicious, it’s well made and you want to have it always in your refrigerator. It’s confident and brisk.

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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Not one of my favorite offerings from Victory. It was way too hoppy for a pale ale. The only thing pale about this was the ABV.
