3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Served on-tap at Al’s of Hampden. Pours clear amber orange with a small half finger tall white head, quickly dissipating to a light film, leaving small streaks of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smells of grassy, piney and slightly citric hops as well as some mildly toasted caramel malt and bready wheat. Taste is pretty similar to the nose. Lots of bitter hops up front with some chewy wheat and sweet caramel malt backing it all up. Crisp, bitter feel with some chewy sweetness toward the end of each sip.
Overall a decent hybrid IPA. Good amount of hops backed up by a strong core of wheat and malt. Another nice IPA out of Victory.

This draft brew from a restaurant poured a head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a softly carbonated transparent light yellow white colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was wheat and woody. The dry crisp mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering mild vinous hop aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of semi-sweet wheat mildly vinous hops and bread dough. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at The Brass Tap-U Square. Pint glass. Pours a mostly clear gold on the yellow end of the spectrum, with a small white head that laces the glass. Aroma of wheat, spices and herbs, straw, grass, bread, and some sweat. Flavor of grass, straw, wheat, pale, and bready malts, lemon zest, florals, and subtle herbs (rosemary?). Light-bodies, with moderate carbonation and a clean, mildly bitter mouthfeel. Criminally underrated.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale with a thin head. Fruity, berryish hop character. Light body, modest bitterness (low 20s?) and a malty-fruity accent. Mild, probably would be refreshing but I guess I’d like a bit of hop bite with this.

On tap @ SL Liquors. Pours a pale copper color with a one finger foamy white head that has decent retention. A subtle aroma of fruity esters backed by mild grassy and herbal notes. Taste begins with some wheat, light bready notes, and mild banana followed by a tamed hop bitterness of grassy and herbal hops. Moderate carbonation and a thin, light mouthfeel.
