COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bold, spicy and menacingly delicious, this American-hopped India Pale Ale offers an aromatic punch and then follows through with a lasting, full-bodied finish.

The Cadillac of IPA's. Less hop/malt balance than some. However, if you like hops, this is the beer for you. This one is hard to beat.

Phenominally hopped nose. Proper IPA style with floral tones. Rusty golden hue with a light orangy head. Wow, what a taste incredably hoppy with hints of serbert and peach. A fantastic IPA. Has a buttery texture and a long dry, bitter finish

moderate perfumey hop aroma, pours with a copper hue, highly hopped, long dry and bitter hop finish, has an oily palate and reasonable carbonation, good IPA.

leaparsons (8068) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2003
The aroma is both spicy and floral and a hint of the taste to come. Which is spicy, peppery, has light grain and then the hops kick in. Oily, spicy and bitter these hops stay on the palate for ages. A hop head delight.

Beautiful color with a strong hop aroma. Very assertive, but remains very drinkable. One of my favorite daily drinkers. I also recommend Tupper's Hop Pocket (Ale of Pils), if you can get it.

UPDATED: JAN 28, 2004 This beer has little to no head and a deep amber body. Nose is heavy on piney hops, and flavor is more of the same. Obviously the hops is the dominant characteristic; big, sticky, spicy hops. It reminds me of DFH 90 min IPA. I love this beer!

EKGoldings (526) - Radford, Virginia, USA - JUL 18, 2003
One of the best American style IPAs that I have ever had. The malt is there but has to push itself forward with the hop bitterness and aromas. Amazingly, they kept this one in great balance. An IPA with american hops that you will enjoy if you like IPAs.

Nice aroma and a sexy red body. This is the beer that made me start drinking beer. It's hoppiness is extreme but perfectly balanced. Drink this beer.

AxeMaster221 (343) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 14, 2003
Nice flowery aroma for a bottled IPA, brownish red body, and a quick dissapating head. Very well balanced American IPA, in other words far hoppier that the English equivalant. Nice bitey hop finish. My first Victory product, very good stuff.
