3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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. Session on

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

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Local, Philadelphia, draft. Fruity aroma. Looks "light." No head or lacing. Not heavy, fruity taste, light palate. OK for a session IPA.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bright, mostly clear yellow color. Aroma is citrus, grassy. Taste is mostly citrus rind and grapefruit with very little sweetness. It’s decent, but not something I’ll be trying again. There are better session IPA choices (Stone Go-To is one of my favorites).

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle poured a light golden color with a thin coating of white head. Aroma has citrus, nice supporting malts, mild resins, and a bit of sweetness. Mouth feel is light with medium low carbonation. Flavor has nice clean hops, citrus, mild grapefruit, bit of bitterness, and sweet supporting malt. Feels like it is much bigger in abv.

4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Definitely one of the better session IPAs I’ve tasted recently. This beer poured a bright and clear light yellow color with a straw-like hue. There wasn’t much head on the beer, but it did leave some really sticky lacing around the inside of the glass. The nose was fairly aggressive, with plenty of woody and hoppy notes. The flavors were bright, clean and fresh, with plenty of spicy, dry, woody and fruity hops. There were just enough malts in the beer to provide a balanced backbone. Very delicious IPA!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is truly the first Session IPA I will rebuy. It has a great hop flavor that is more than an American Pale, really on par with a decent IPA, but the alcohol is less, so it isn’t sweet or alcoholic. Great.
