My favorite at victory! This was a nice copper color. Aroma was herbal and earthy hops, light caramel malt. Tasted of herbs and citrus, medium sweetness and bitterness. the Biterness lasts a bit. Really enjoyed this one, solid pale ale.

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!

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.

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.

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.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a murky amber with a white foamy head that is slow to dissipate. Smells strongly of cascade hops (grassy) as well as orange and biscuit. Until reading reviews of this I didn’t notice the taste of orange but pouring this in a glass I get more of that and the biscuit taste for the malt. Usually I drink this from the bottle and notice how its probably one of the most hoppy pale ales out their. Gives it more character than other Pale ales and makes an interesting and easily drinkable brew. Delicious

Pours a clear golden with a Small white head. Decent lacing. Slight carbonation. Aroma is very sweet and hoppy. Floral and citrus mainly grapefruit and orange peel. A decent yeast presence. Mouth is very bitter and hoppy. Yeast is strong up front. The citrus hops are present, but a pine/resinous quality takes over here.
