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.

Being the Hops lover that I am, I thought this was an incredible brew to drink. Different that most IPAs in the sense that that is not overpoweringly sweet but more spicy with a great bite at the finish.

Had this on draft at the Grey Lodge in Phila. Almost the perfect IPA. If you're a hophead this beer is a must.

This is my go to IPA because of its availability and "hop satisfaction". Hop is spicy in character and lasts from first burst to lingering nose.

OldGrowth (2644) - North Carolina, USA - JAN 18, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 24, 2003 Not a great nose. a little weak. Amberish color. Not crazy about the flavor. Solid body. Well built just something in there i don't like.

spicedad2 (78) - Huntingdon Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 16, 2003
This is a great IPA style ale which has enough of the hop tang while having a great body feel and an excellen aroma. Enjoy with some wings or chile

One of the best IPA's I have tried. Great after taste and perfect amount of hops

ConiseurofBeer (242) - Downingtown, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 13, 2003
One of my local favorites. A very nice appearence, a good but slightly shallow flavor, and as with most Victory beers a nice finish. Good aftertaste.

elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - JAN 12, 2003
Medium amber color with decent sized head. Aroma eludes to hops but not much more. Frankly I was somewhat disappointed - I expected more flavor from a Victory offering. I got bitter and some hops but it seemed to be missing something compared to other IPA’s that I have enjoyed. I might just give this another chance when I encounter it again.

beerguy101 (5278) - Newark, California, USA - JAN 12, 2003
Orange gold color. Medium head. Aroma is floral hops and slight malts. A medium bodied IPA. It’s also fairly malty for an IPA. Yet the malt sweetness is balanced by the nicely spicy hops. This is not one of those in-your-face West Coast IPA, yet it’s still retains that nice IPA character. A very nice smooth balance between the malts and hops. Nice IPA, very drinkable. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

bender (293) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - JAN 11, 2003
Reddish-orange body with a white head. Nice lacing. Smells of a malty, hoppy beer. Nice balance between the malt and hops. Just enough backbone to support the bitterness. Great take on the IPA style.
