3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2014 Bottle into snifter glass, cloudy golden color with white head. Aroma of funky floral/fruity hops and slight pine note too. Taste is much more welcoming, very tropical fruit leaning (mango, pineapple) and some honey. Medium body, low carbonation, soft, cream, slick with smooth hoppy finish. I’ll admit the aroma was somewhat offputting with the funk but this IIPA more then makes up for it in taste, palate and finish. Great stuff.

Beer smelled and looked great nice filtration on it to make it crystal clear but the flavors quite boozee with is not what I am looking for in an IPA but it does finish quite smooth but still find my self looking for that great pine hop flavor that never makes it through the malt not a fan sorry

Pours a burnt orange color with a white head. Hop, citrus, floral and biscuit aroma. Mango, tangerine, pineapple, grapefruit, floral, hop and biscuit flavors. Medium body and carbonation. Citrus finish. Past best by date but still delicious, no oxidation or undesirable flavors noticed.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the Woodward Theater. Pours a cloudy gold color with a small white head that settles into a ring and leaves some spots of film. Notes of citrus fruits, sweet malts, resin, pineapple, mango, melon, grass, and pine. Medium-bodied, with low to moderate carbonation and a sweet, malty mouthfeel. Really good imperial IPA; another winner from Victory.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is a citrus bomb. Grassy and thyme aromas. The combination of less dry fruit and pilsner malt in an DIPA are unique and brilliant. 9% alcohol well hidden.
Superb mouth feel and worth seeking out. One of the best beers I’ve ever tried. In my top ten, maybe top five.

Draft: I enjoyed this a lot more than I anticipated that I would. The wonderful bitter bite of citrus with a lingering bitter aftertaste. ABV hides away in this nicely.
