stunetii (90) - Bergen, NORWAY, - AUG 21, 2011
Purchased at the Fireside in Strasburg, PA. Overall, this was a fantastic IPA. Pours with a hazy amber color, producing a solid standing white head with tight and sticky lacing. The nose is hoppy, as the name suggests: sweet, with florally, mildly fruity and piney aromas. The taste is decently balanced, although I the malt hints could be a bit stronger. It starts out sweet, with notes of pine and tropical fruits, that transitions to some malty notes. The finish is dry, hoppy and lasting – perhaps a bit too lasting. Simply wonderful!

Bottle 355ml @ Hotel room, The Latham Hotel, Philadelphia, PA
Pours clear copper with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, citrus, pine, grass and floral. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter with a long malty, caramel, fruity, piney and grassy finish. Body is medium to full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

AAEA (213) - California, USA - JUN 20, 2015
12FL OZ ($21 12pack) first off don’t let the name fool ya, this is not some IBU power house but rather a fairly easy going drinkable IPA. the guys at Victory have masked the taste of alcohol in the 6.7%ABV beer to the point that its like a soda; which is a good thing!. possible a hopdevil for the fact you can get wasted quickly and not see it coming. its a keeper.

12oz bottle. Cooper color with one finger head. Caramel, biscuit, pine aroma. Caramel, pine taste. Pretty good IPA with that flavor.

MarkoNm (1292) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JUN 11, 2015
Pours a fairly clear amber color, topped with a relatively small and quickly disappearing white head. Malty aroma, notes of caramel and biscuits. Some resin also in there. Tatse is similar. Malty and caramely at first, a bit biscuity too, followed by a medium hoppy bitterness. Not bad, although a bit too malty balance.

Bottle - Clear almost amber hue, zero head to speak of here. Slight orange and floral notes. There is some bops flavor but not what I was expecting from the name.

UXO (760) - CANADA - JUN 3, 2015
Pours clear pale to medium amber with a short light tan head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, patchy lacing. (3/5) Nose is caramel, mango, pine, herbal, slightly dank. (7/10) Taste is moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Medium body, moderate to low carbonation, lingering slightly sticky and bitter finish. (3/5) A malt-forward A/IPA that is heavier on the mango/tropical notes than the piney. Sort of west coast-ish, but not overly so. Not bad, but nothing stellar. (14/20)

King_Alex_II (521) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 3, 2015
Clear ruby color with little foam. Amber smell. The taste is tart and not much more. The aftertaste is tart as well. Not very convincing.

SinH4 (923) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 3, 2015
Dark amber color with big head. Aroma is caramel and pine. Taste is more caramel, pine, a bit mango, a bit booze, nice bitterness. Not bad, and not your usual West coast IPA. Not 99th-percentile IPA material I think. Superb drinkability though. EDIT: Doesn’t survive long in the glass, gets quite murky soon.

TedE (444) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 2, 2015
12 fl oz bottle into schooner glass. Fruity chalky nose. Bronze coloured beer with lasting off-white head. Lightly carbonated. Ohh....this is full of caramel notes mixed in with the hops. Really easy drinking, really well balanced. Great finish. Hides the alcohol well, great beer.
