4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
ahhh....finally ... I can’t say much more or even well enough in summary as well as rich has said but here goes
Appearance: Nice bright gold hue....the body has a good 1/3 inch white frothy head....the head is near a sappyness in that it clings to the glass walls pretty nicely....
Smell: Great sweet apple/star-fruit/mellon aroma...hints of floral pine but a great overall nose satisfication
Taste: Great sweet delicate grapefruit taste without any bitterness....not sure how they did that...jolly rancher apple bursts...pears and mellons seem to be the underlying additive....great balance and depth...no malty backbone as rich has stated...nice hop punch... not as overwhelming as I was prepared for....but I like it that way
Notes: I am amazed with this limited release...there were only 32 cases I blieve that night and I am happy to say I have one of them...great stuff
: Reviewed this one again...I realised that my score was too low after drinking many of these for different reasons...possably a fealing of awe while scribbling on a hopdevil coaster

From notes. A decent DIPA, but very sweet. Definitely hoppy, very sweet with some floral notes, grass. Retired now, indifferent on the beer.

3.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Golden pilsner like color. Small to no head and little odor, perhaps grainy if any odor at all. Flavor is nice grassy citrus hop flavors with a light subtle effervescent finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Aroma has notes of flowers, grapefruit, citrus, tropical fruits and toasted malts. Medium yellow/amber hue with an average white head that mostly diminished and left decent lace. Flavor is very sweet and bitter. Palate is full bodied and watery with a soft carbonation and long bitter finish. Overall a nice IIPA from Victory.

Pours gold with a medium white head. Aroma is mango and tropical fruits with some faint peppery spice. Taste is initially the same, but the flavors evolve somewhat on the palate. The finish is a nice mellow bitterness.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted at bier bistro in Toronto. A expensive bar in general but it was very expensive on the list, probably because it is hard to ship in. But I enjoyed it, good double IPA.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Growler pour from the brewpub, courtesy of Andy. Thought this was retired. Pours a clean gold with fluffy white head and webbed lacing. Nose of caramel, citrus and grassy hop. Sweet and caramel-y with a pretty bitter finish. This used to be a favorite of mine when I was first drinking craft beers but I suppose my tastes have changed.

Very good beer from a very good brewery. Nothing really stands out about it to me; still better than a lot of IPAs though.
