On tap at Capone’s. Poured a golden color with a smaller sized white head. Floral hops, citrus, pine, and some fruitiness. Nice for a low alcohol beer.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Ginger Man. A little rough around the edges, but still enjoyable. Pours clear gold with a white head. Big fresh grassy dank hops, with moderate bitterness, zero malt character, and a quick hoppy finish. A little thin as well. Comes across a little to over the top for a beer this small. I love me some session IPAs, but the point is to make them drinkable. Not that I wasn’t able to finish the pint I ordered, but I certainly wasn’t left wanting another.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Lawn clipping dry hop rawness, ugh. Garlic, pine resin, onions, leafy greens.
All pale malt, apparently. Husky coarse malt texture, little to no malt flavor, lean body bordering on astringent. Off-dry. Mild flavor but presents a powerfully raw hop odor, nose-in-bag hop quality. An example of dry hopping gone wrong. From tap at Porter Beer Bar in Atlanta.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Twisted Jimmy’s. Vibrant floral-piney hop bouquet, spicy with resin and a little dankness. Light golden clear with light hops, topped with thin white lacing head. Medium body with high carbonation. Starts dry with carbonic acidity, bit floral-spicy hop flavor and pale malt notes. Carbonic bite. Finish is hoppy with medium-high lasting bitterness. Nice session.

I love Victory, but found this to be watered down mess. Malt characteristics are nearly nonexistent and the hops are just okay. I expected more.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draft at the taphouse. Light golden color with minimal head. This beer smells like weed. A bag of dank. Taste has a bit of that but not nearly as strong. Some citrus and grassy hops. Thin body but I guess expected for 4.5%. This is a very good IPA

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark golden color with a medium sized, off white head, nice lacing. Aroma of floral hops, pine, citrus, skunk, tropical fruits. Taste of much of the same, fruity, hoppy, pine, orange, and grapefruit. Reminds me of Carton Boat.
