Moving Parts is an IPA series, celebrating the natural, simple, delicious and fundamental ingredients in beer. With a new batch number released every four months, Victory’s brewmasters will tweak different ingredients within the same recipe to create an endless array of possible flavor profiles.

For the first in the series, MP01, Victory blended whole-flower hops from the U.S., U.K. and Germany, with German malts. The result is a well-balanced IPA featuring citrus and piney notes. At 7.2% ABV, it is extremely drinkable.

Drake (8442) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Bomber from Beer Run, 7/20/14. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a large frothy white head. Good head retention. Aroma of floral, citrus, earthy hops and pale and raw malt. The taste is floral, earthy, minty, citrus hops, caramel malt. Medium bodied, mild lingering bitterness, low carbonation, decent balance.

Ed5388 (2054) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - AUG 29, 2014
22oz bomber (drink by date 11/06/14) from The Beer Shoppe (Ardmore PA). Pours a clear golden orange color with 2 fingers of frothy white head. Aroma of orange marmalade, lemon pulp, fresh grapefruit, and caramel malt. Taste mimics the nose. Lots of fresh grapefruit and citrus zest. Pretty solid

PhillyCraft (3185) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 27, 2014
Tap at Kraftwork, pours copper gold, clearish. Light and random lacing. Lots of tiny bubbles in the head and over carbonation. Notes are very basic with light pine, orange, and malt. Somewhat lagery in the mouthfeel with a bitter finish. Very generic

dlovell2 (735) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - AUG 26, 2014

nuplastikk (4347) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 24, 2014
22oz bomber. Golden-tan body, looks filtered. Creamy off-white head. A really solid IPA. Lots of chewy malt depth, and a well rounded hop bill. Crisp and drinkable, not syrupy. Toasty, rich golden malt. Pretty much an awesome East Coast IPA, if that makes any sense...certainly has some UK sensibilities despite the ABV. Lots of depth. Solid IPA.

PorterPounder (5478) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 23, 2014
Warner Robins, Ga. - Lazy Dog Growler - 22 oz bomber. Pours a sparking medium gold with a nice thick off white head, light lacing. Nice fragrant spruce aroma. Solid bitter grapefruit citrus bitterness, some sweet caramel notes, a touch of mango fruitiness. Nice, thick rich mouthfeel. Another solid entrant from Victory.

Mastelefish (84) - North Huntingdon, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 22, 2014
From a 22 oz. bottle, pours a copper with a white head. Significant white lacing down the glass. Aroma is of the typical floral-citrus hop variety offered by Victory. The malts are somewhat toned down and it is moderately bitter with a medium mouthfeel. Booziness doesn’t come through too heavily. Won’t amaze you, but it is an easy to put down IPA. I’ll probably get the next in this series.

skoisirius (1634) - Earth, Washington, USA - AUG 19, 2014
Solid IPA from Victory. Just as stated, forward citrus notes with a hot resinous pine edge. Dank!

jefcon (1380) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Nice strong and solid stuff. Floral, lightly bitter nose. Oats and grain, flowers and dandelion, and a full finish.

Nose is resin, floral, citrus golden, clear pour Medium sweetness, medium bitterness, Very astringent, but smooths out by the end of the bottle. I like seeing the experimentation, but this one is a little off.
