4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Best by April 20th 2014. Pours out a solid golden color with sticky foamy head. Smells like spicy whole hops, pine, grapefruit, peppery, some tropical fruits and a little herbal notes as well. Could there also be a whiff of licorice? Tastes hugely of hops and some sweetness. Lots of spice, citrus and again herbal notes with some sweet malts. Cannot detect a high alcohol but feel a warming sensation going down. Palate is quite full. Victory uses whole hops which in my opinion gives their beers a unique taste being more earthy and herbal. Overall this is a very pleasant double IPA and a fine example of the style.

Pours a nice clear, gold color with no lacing or head retention. Smells like pine and hops. Tastes very hop forward and finishes less bitter than I thought it would. Good beer, but nothing crazy.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(from notes) - served in pint glass
A - hazy yellow/orange capped with medium eggshell head. Head has modest retention. Ample, fine carbonation.
Aroma of citrus hops and malt. Mild aroma for style and taste.
T - "Hop Wallop"? Yes, but amply tempered with a generous load of caramel malt. Has bitter (lemony grapefruit) hop finish and aftertaste true to style. Pronounced citrus and pine notes to hops.
M - brisk and a bit tingly; medium body;
D - a good sipper, although I notice it is disappearing rather quickly; a good session beer too, but watch out for that 8.5% ABV which is not obvious via aroma or taste.
