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.

Bottled. Pours a dark amber, with a decent tan head that lasts almost through the whole beer. Laces the glass as it goes down. Aroma is hoppy, floral, and sweet. Mouth feel is very good. Tastes of hops is prevelent, and finishes with a hoppy sweetness. An excellent IPA.

My go to IPA in Cny from October to march. Nice classic IPA hop aroma balanced by caramel toffee maltiness. Very well balanced maltier IPA. Kind of like a light barleywine if there were such a thing.

Little more bitter than hoped. Good flavor and aroma. Not great. Leaves a strong unflattering after taste.

"i’m not having the best of luck with Victory’s hoppy beers...i absolutely love Old Horizontal & Storm King, and expected to love Hop Wallop and Hop Devil as well, but so far, no dice. The single bottle I found of HW last month was spoiled, and I had to rate it as such. This one was not spoiled, but was sampled 3/16/09 and had a best by date of 3/09. I bought ’em anyway...it was that or nothing...but the beer is obviously past it’s prime. It reminded me of a Rogue IPA I kept for too long. Still an ok beer, which once again leaves me to wonder how good it could have been, but for now it’s just ok...subdued hop presence...not really big or juicy, but more spicy. tasted a little old, although the feel was still ok. more hops and a touch of malt on the finish, but not enough. One day I’ll get one at it’s peak... 9/09-finally had one fresh at the pub. almost a 4, but not enough to erase the several spoiled/aged ones i’ve got in bottles. 3.8 tap/3.1-2 bottle. cask didn’t treat it as well, came off too mellow (3.3)"

Surprisingly smooth and drinkable. It’s not bold, it’s not spicy, its not menacingly delicious, it’s just warm blanket delicious. . A good beer to introduce friends to IPA with.

On tap at Øltorget, september 16th 2014. Copper body with a small white head. Aroma is malty with tropical fruits and pine. Taste of caramel, mild hoppy, would have liked a hoppier punch, herbal finish with a strong bitterness, malty aftertaste with citrus notes.
