3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour from bottle into pint glass. Pours a clear golden/light copper color with a 1/2" white foam head. Aroma is very hoppy with a bit of citrus and pine. Very hoppy front taste that quickly recedes with some lingering pine flavor. Highly carbonated and leaves the roof of the mouth feeling a little dry/rough.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
At a party so forced to drink from bottle. A clear beer, true colors were unable to be seen. Hoppy but not a huge grapefruit bite. It is there but malt flavors also come through. More bitter than I expected. There is a bitter bite in the finish. Aroma is a light citrus with biscut. Not bad but not my favorite Victory.

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.

Color and clarity are excellent on this APA, golden amber blend that all pales should try to match. Aroma leaves something to be desired however, not a lot of citrus or floral hops coming through. Taste has some hop bitter, but is missing that hint of citrus for me. This beer drinks well though and I will very happily finish the 6 pack. I wont break down the door to buy more, but would order one on tap if given the chance.

Hazy orange amber pore with thin head. Grassy orange aroma. Orange rind, grass and subtle sweetness. Nice dry hoppy finish. Very competent pale.

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.

3.6 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.

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.

3.8 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.
