3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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)

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
