Nice little dirt wolf jr. Aroma is grassy herbal light lemony citrus and grainy malts. Taste is lightly sweet with no bittering. Malts are a bit bready. Pretty decent session.

Macegan75 (727) - Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 2, 2015
Bottle from a six pack I purchased at Capone’s. Pours pale yellow with nice head that fades. Aroma of lemon peal and bready notes. Finish is dry with a touch of bergamot. Nice.

lamas (1412) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 1, 2015
Bottle. Different label than that in the picture. Enjoy by: 06/06/15. A clear amber pour with a smallish beige head. Grapefruits, oranges, zesty citrus rinds, and light caramel malts dominate the appealing aroma. Goes down thin and quite crisp. Very light caramel sweetness, corn, and wheat upfront in the taste. Some touches of grapefruit and zesty citrus rinds at the end. Crackery. Definitely drinkable and awfully poundable. Very good for what it is.

Ron (2776) - Rochester, New York, USA - FEB 1, 2015
Bottle at Bob’s. Pale golden pour with a medium white head. Aroma of herbal hops, lemon, and floral notes. Flavor is hop forward and crisp, mild malt backing. Moderate bitterness. Light bodied with lively carbonation. Finishes hoppy. This is a pretty good session IPA.

I feel like making session IPAs is a dangerous affair. Sure the idea has been nice. Drinkers have preferred drier IPAs for a few years now, not those crystal-malt bombs of the early 2000’s, so why not dry it out some more? You get a sessionable beer and you can still have flavor with plenty of hops. But the danger comes when you dry it out too much and you’re left with a mouthful of resinous chewy hop juice that is not balanced by enough malt to give it any backbone. Does this beer enter that territory? Nope, but if there’s a line, they’re straddling it. Victory still knows how to build a hop profile and in the end that is probably what saves this beer. Fresh juicy citrusy hops, lemon-lime in character, lightly resinous and jut enough malt for body. Kiss of malted sweetness near the finish which is actually balanced, not bitter.

kramer (5213) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 31, 2015
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy yellow gold body under a thin fizzy white head that faded to a patchy film. The nose is hoppy and bright with minimal impact from the malt. Smells like some strong citra in here. The malt that is there is light and bready. The flavor is slanted towards the hops up front, but balanced out towards the finish. I like the hops in here, light bitterness, a little fruity, some tropical notes. Light bodied and soft with a nice crisp finish and lingering hops. Pretty nice beer, think I could crush a 6er of this without much thought.

Maxbier (496) - Maryland, USA - FEB 5, 2015
Very light straw color with white head. Big grassy grapefruit hop aroma. Light mouthfeel, medium sweetness, light malt flavors, hop balanced. Plenty of hop flavors: grapefruit, pineapple, mango. Lightly bittered. Typical session IPA you expect from a good craft brewer. I would drink again.

abcfan (770) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 31, 2015
Not a huge fan. Pours yellow with no head. Decent aroma full of fruity citrus hops. Finishes dry with a light hop bite.

pineypower (2609) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - FEB 5, 2015
Bottle. Pours out a clear golden color with a small white head. Aroma is of spicy hops, resin, light pine and grapefruit hops with some bready malts. Taste is clean, bready malts, dough, pine hops, light grass and floral notes with some citrus also. Very drinkable.

EithCubes (5138) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 5, 2015
Bottle. Nose is dank, some wood, very light juice under pith and rind, caramel; generally pretty mild, though with nice trendy hops. Pours clear yellow-golden with a bright white head. Taste strongly bitter with some nice pithy/rindy astringency, really nice to taste that in an IPA again. Also leans metallic, has a mineral character and a briny finish. Pretty dry overall, allows the clean bitterness to shine, not to much in the way of fruity or juicy hop flavor, just a little green and wood (actual seems a bit closer to a classic Pils). Touch spicy, full body, and a very repeatable session beer.
