4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours golden with a thick foamy head. Aroma is sharp pine needle and citrus. Flavors of tangy grapefruit and sweet mango. Alcohol is present but masked. Less bitter than expected and has a nice dry finish. Full body with a slight oily characteristic. Overall an excellent IIPA. Very well balanced. Victory knows their hops.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Wow, what a beer! Appearance is a large, fluffy, foamy, off-white head that lasts a long time, lots of lace, and a clear light yellow color. Aromas are fresh hops, fresh baked bread, malt, a little fruit. Flavor’s are similar to nose, perfect balance between bitter, sweet, and tang. Excellent body. Slight medicinal aftertaste from hop. Super easy drinking beer.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Really outstanding nose, with juicy pineapple and something else tropical. Appearance is meh with a pale color, a bit of haze, and no head. Taste is average DIPA, a bit citrus dominated, a touch of tropical. Smooth, decent. Thanks for the bottle Bob!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle with a BB May 2015 date stamp.
Slightly hazy golden-amber body topped by a durable and creamy white head. Outstanding lacing with a near full coat sticking to the glass.
Aroma: strong hops with hints of pineapple and citrus.
Flavor: Seemed a bit too hopped for me at first sip, like many DIPAs, but I quickly adjusted to what now seemed like a rather well balanced flavor with only moderate bitterness. Still, will not appeal to people who are not fond of hops. Very good complexity with clear notes of tropical and citrus fruits, most notably the tropical fruits.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ The Cellar (Whittier). I was honestly surprised that this is as pale as it is. Nice. Smells like pineapple juice and grapefruit. Some peach, light mango, and maybe some sweet malt. A touch of booze on the finish. Flavor is big on the pineapple as well. A little on the sweet side, but it works okay. Decent bitterness of citrus and some subtle pine. Not bad for a bottled, nationwide, high boost IPA.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz. bottle. It pours a pale yellow gold color with a nice white head. The aroma is fresh citrus, grass, papaya and pineapple. Pretty juicy and hoppy. The flavor has more spicy hop character, but still very juicy and tropical as well. Low bitterness and solid carbonation. Not much maltiness except for some light sweet bread and honey notes. The finish is floral and spicy with some orange. Very nice stuff.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2015-03-04. Dark yellow body with a small white head. 3+ Aroma is mild with a good amount of vanilla, cedar and a touch of hops. Is this barrel aged? Flavour is lightly bitter with a sweet fruity hop character. Lightly woody undertones. Smooth average bodied palate, soft carbonation. Not what I was expecting, and not entirely to my tastes. On tap at Birch & Barley, Washington DC.
