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.

Bouteille bue en juillet 2014. Arômes floral et malté. Le houblon goûte pas vraiment. Le côté floral et épicé prend beaucoup de place. Amère. Ressemble à une pale ale anglaise,

Poured into a snifter. 4.5 A: Clear medium orange color. One and a half fingers of frothy off-white head. Retention is very good and tons of lacing is left. Good here. 4.75 S: This smells freakin amazing. Citrusy, floral, and piney hops combine to make one of the best hop profiles I’ve found in a while. It smells like a mountain stream flowing through a citrus orchard. Crackery sugary malts underneath. Quite nice. 4.5 T: Doesn’t taste as good as it smells, but I guess that would be hard to do given how much I like the nose. Still, really good beer. Again citrusy, floral, and piney combo works super well. Again crackery sweet malts. 4.5 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Light creaminess and super smooth. 4.5 D: Really good beer. They should keep this one. ★ 804 characters DavoleBomb, Oct 31, 2014

22oz bottle. Pulled this one from the back of my shelf - long forgotten and past its drink by date. Poured a golden color with an averaged sized head. Floral, some pine and stale hops. Will give this one the benefit of the doubt as not bad a year+ past its prime for an IPA.

Originally rated on 7/18/14. "Pours a bright golden copper color with a large foamy white head, that leaves spotty lace. Aromas of toasty and bready malt, grassy hops and a touch of pine. Lighter bodied, with a full body and a dry, resiny finish. Flavor has a strong toasted and Munich malt base, herbal and citrus hops and a piney resin bitter finish. Overall it a IPA with a German influence, the flavor wasnt that good, maybe it might work for someone who likes milder IPA’s.

My bottle of Moving Parts was from Batch 01, and in late June, 2015, it was a little too old in terms of IPA ideal freshness. Nonetheless, it’s still a decent beer, and I enjoyed it. Moving Parts poured a light, golden color with light head. The aroma is pine, white grape juice, a little bit of lemon. The flavor is bright and dry. Citrus up front, then a sharp finish and a little bit of lemon candy on the finish. I’ll try a bottle from another batch if I find one, and as good as this one was, I won’t even worry much about freshness.

With the family sans Marisa , on a hot Saturday afternoon on Hunnaphu Day, pours an orange hazy rusty color with a small white head. Nose is slightly bitter and very floral. Taste is bitter with nice hoppy floral notes. Very drinkable and enjoyable. Finishes on the bitter floral notes with a moderate long ending. Descent ! Quaff Score 7 / 10

Bomber. Pours a hazy orange with a white head and piney, citrus, floral aroma. Taste is bitter, pine and floral notes along with balancing malt caramel leading to a dry; bitter finish.

Poured a hazy amber with a tall creamy off-white head. The head left some nice clingy lacing throughout the glass. There was a nice amount of carbonation bubbles visable rising up in the glass through the hazy beer. The aroma was primarily citrus with light pine and caramel malt. The beer had a slightly thicker, creamy texture. The was a good citrus flavor right up front almost tart. Then a good amount of caramel sweetness joined in to mellow the citrus and hops bite. On the finish the hops reappeared more predominately and left a nice hops bite that wasn’t to overpowering. I liked this one very much and it paired very well with the stuffed jalapeno peppers we were having with it.

Bomber. Golden orange pour with a small pure white head. Pine cone aroma with a hint of citrus. Drier finish on the tongue. Okay, not great.
