ben4321 (4626) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 16, 2015
Location: Draft at Blind Tiger, 3/15/2015

Aroma: Lighter aroma, some grapefruit/tropical hops, resiny notes, and a little onion
Appearance: It is clear gold in color, with a white head and some solid lace
Flavor: This one has a pretty good hop profile, leaning bitter, and just lightly sweet
Palate: It is light bodied and easy drinking, with a soft feel, and a clean, dry finish
Overall Impression: Pretty solid Session IPA, but not one of the better ones in the style. Drinkable beer overall though. You could certainly do worse than to take down a few of these in a session.

Gachupines (1061) - USA - APR 13, 2015
Clear golden color with a thin white head. Aroma is very slight hops. Flavor is light with some crisp bitter hops. Clean finish, perhaps a bit too light, even for a session IPA. Wife: 3.3

The closest to a 3.2 beer I have, as befits National Beer Day. 12 oz. bottle sent for review. Had this maybe 2 months, and the "Enjoy by" date is May18, but there’s still a nice nose of hops as I open the cap and hear the inviting "pssssht!". Pour is very light, like a "regular" Pale lager, except for a haze from visible particles of hops floating around. Aroma is strong on those ’catbox" hops I actually like; Amarillo, Simcoe, etc., or so I think. Taste is full of the same kind of hops I caught in the nose, intensely bitter and resiny. Yet fun for hop heads anywhere. Light malts, of course, and a bit gassy. Almost as if someone snuck into a megabrewery and dumped some actual flavor into the kettle. Then I find some notes of black peppercorn as I near the bottom of the glass. I might personally like more malt backbone, but that would take it out of the "sessionable" category. Dry finishes wraps up the bottle. Definitely something you could have several servings of in a night, and just might want to.

Doofgoblin (420) - Chevy Chase, Washington DC, USA - APR 3, 2015
For a low malt session IPA, it’s pretty good. The aroma is sort of faint, but if you let it warm a bit the notes are of lemon, slightly earthy, and some indistinguishable citrus fruitiness. The flavors are nice and hop forward. The malt profile is almost nonexistent and really not what’s on show here. The hop flavors are earthy and fruity--it has a very pure, simple flavor. You know what I mean? Finish is not bitter but refreshing. Overall, it’s a fall asleep in the sun in your backyard kind of brew.

bhensonb (12296) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 2, 2015
Bottle from Corti Brothers. Pours gold with a slight white head. Aroma seems towards dank and Mosaic. Near medium body. Flavor is somewhat dank with resin and hints of crazy fruits. It’s quite bitter and pretty hoppy. To be a standard all that’s required would be a stronger malt backbone. But then the ABV wouldn’t be sessionable. As it is, this is a great ale which should be great during summer activities.

ddemmingjr (769) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - APR 2, 2015
First off, well done Victory. A sessionable IPA that's damn close to a true 6% plus balanced IPA. Poured clear golden, bubbly white head. Nose is citrus, resinous hops, some earthy malts and wood notes. Clean west coast hop resins along with mat backing, long bitter finish with a touch of sweetness. Balanced .A day drinking bonanza.

Chudwick (2416) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - APR 2, 2015
12 ounce bottle – nose is combo of cat pee, resin and citrus. Sip adds a little cardboard AKA floral notes. Balanced considering the style. Easy to drink
