Pours clear copper with a white head that quickly dissipated. Aroma is caramel, citrus, floral and toast. Taste is sweety with a mild bitterness. Medium bodied with a somewhat sticky texture. Crisp and dry finish. Not a super hoppy IPA but well balanced in the English style.

Draft at Alla Spina. Poured a lightly cloudy amber with thin off-white head and lacing. Aroma of earthy hops, dirt, grapefruit, caramel, wood. Not overly hoppy for an IPA and more of the European hops come through.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
transparent copper, thin white head with ample lacing. Mute basement nose, lightly oily and metallic. Flavor sweeter, orange up front with light caramel malt, faint sickening sugar creeping in. Thick, over carbonated, earthy caramel finish. Nearly in control, still too sweet. Victory IPA sweetness, as usual.

Casked at barcade. Aroma of great pine hops. Pours light brown with a creamy blanket of head. Taste just like it smells. Great pine hop with a solid malt back. A little lame on finish but a great IPA.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear golden orange body moderate white head solid sheet like lacing. Nose shows off the blend of us and euro hops. Ultimately, a German pilsener hop profile wins out.. which ain’t a bad thing from Victory. Flavor shows similar notes... some pine and noble hops. Medium bodied. Appropriate carbonation. And a moderately bitter finish.
