22 oz. bottle from Total Wine in Chesapeake, VA. Pours pale yellow with a bright white head. Aroma of grassy and Earthy hops. Clean grassy hop flavor with a perfectly balanced malt sweetness on the back end. This style is not my thing but this is as good as it gets.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Clear yellow straw color, white fizzy head. Aroma of very floral hops, some sweet citrus hops as well. Sharp bitter hops overwhelm the taste buds. This beer is all hops. Some pale malts in the background, hidden by the blast of citrus oil and leather. A good summer beer. LOADS of HOPS. (3341)

Tap at Maple Tree Inn. Citrus (mostly grapefruit) aroma and flavor. Very well done. Good malt behind the scenes. Blended exceptionally well. I want to mow my lawn just so I can drink this beer afterward!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle-Purchased at Spec’s in El Paso, TX-Pours clear bright gold with a small sudsy soapy white head around the rim of the glass. lite carbonation here which aids to the beer IMO. nose of big bright citrus hops, flowery, husky notes and a touch of sulfer. flavors exhibit the big hop profile for such a small beer however, the hops are more spicy than one would think from the nose-more abrasive, slightly dank pine that lingers for a very long time into the finish. lite body with lite carbonation make this one easy to pound. On a hot NM day, this really fits the bill. For me, this is the best beer Victory has come out with in years.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark straw/pale amber. Medium head. Smells like weed, real powdery lupulin hops. Light on the bitterness, and with a fresh, breezy Atlantic boardwalk sort of maltiness. Wish more of the dank nose made it onto the palate. The bitterness does sit on the tongue a little bit, but I was promised more. It reminds me of De Smet Hop Harvest from Marble in Albuquerque, except not as refined or unique. Good brew though.
