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.

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 (1425) - 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.

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.

Ron (2854) - 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.

kramer (5307) - 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.

Not a huge fan. Pours yellow with no head. Decent aroma full of fruity citrus hops. Finishes dry with a light hop bite.

berkshirejohn (4956) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2015
On tap at Ebenezer Ale House, West Seneca, NY. A pale straw pour with tight white head; attractive fresh grapefruit aroma; peach and grapefruit taste, and packed with a fruity bitterness that gives a lingering crisp finish.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5215) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 31, 2015
Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a pale yellow color with a large foamy white head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was dry, catbox and perfume. The flavor was dryish and thin with cracker, light malts and bitter floral and perfumey hop notes. Long astringent hoppy finish. Light body. Pretty awful for a good brewer.

MarkSachon (690) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 29, 2015
Tap at Mad Mex on McKnight Road in Pittsburgh. A pleasant and tasty session IPA that does not suffer from any excess. The crispness really stands out.
