Got a taste at the Brick Store Pub. Due its wide availability, I think Victory is a brewery that I have unfairly overlooked. This beer poured almost yellow and clear with a sizable white head. Strong unique citrus scent. Lovely bitter bite front transitions to sweet but crisp finish. Delightful. Draft - Brick Store Pub - Decatur, GA

Pours a very light straw colored gold. Nice bright carbonation on the high-medium side. One finger white head retains well, but breaks into fine lacing about halfway down the glass. Aroma is very floral. Soft citrus aromas creep in, but nothing too sharp. Very inviting and juicy. Taste is very balanced. Nice pineapple, over-ripe melon and kiwi. A slight bitterness in the finish but has a seemingly full mouthfeel from the sweet malt bill...which is surprising, given how light in color this beer is. Another very nice offering from Victory.

Has nice tropical fruit note of melon or mango which gives the air of sweetness without actually being sweet. Unfortunately I notice a catty note that makes further consumption a bit difficult. A good enough DIPA, easy to drink for 9%, but yeah the cat piss is hard to ditch entirely.

On tap at melt Columbus. A hazy honey golden pour with a firm head of white bubbles leaving a nice lace. Nose is mildly musty and medium citrus hops. Taste is restrained citrus hops with good bitters. Fluid body which is lightly active. Finishes with just a touch of good bitters. Overall a good restrained dipa. Alcohol content not immediately evident. Not exactly in your face but still very good.

Bottle. Slightly hazy gold pour with a tall, rocky white head. Aroma is strong floral and resinous hops interspersed with citrus and tropical fruit notes and light malt notes. Taste is strong floral hops, tropical fruit, hop resins, citrus, sweet malt and soft grains. Body is medium-full and has a creamy, bubbly carbonation. Strong lingering hop bitterness to this as well. Lots of tropical fruit and citrus notes during the finish with floral hops, light pine hop resins and sweet malt through the finish. Yummy!
