Cakes (363) - New Bloomfield, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 4, 2011
16 oz. Tap Pours a light brown/amber. Nice texture with a thickness to it. Not, light - but the hops are not over done. Very balanced and plesant taste. Smells of pine, bread, citrus and butterscotch.

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.

Flaska på Akkurat. Klar rödbrun vätska, mastigt skum. Doftar av granskog. Smakar kraftigt av tung humle. Stor beska stannar kvar. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a clear bright orange copper with a nice foamy ecru head that sustains well and leaves very nice lacing. Aroma is citrusy and herbal with some caramel undertones. Taste is citrus juice with some herbal and spicy hop flavor, some caramel malt and a pleasant earthy grapefruit rind bitterness. Finishes with a bit of sweetness and bitter. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Very nice and well made IPA. Would drink again.
