2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Zesty, buttery aroma with well-brewed hops. Clear, very bright yellow beer, bad label. Drier than I thought it would be. Grassy, moderately bitter with vegetable hops flavors. Flaccid at first, not as crisp as I expected, and the mouthfeel is a bit watery -- I’ve got to dock this for palate/mouthfeel, but it does finish out with a nice bitterness. Summer beer? To be sure -- a bunt single, but not what I expect out of Victory. Enjoyed while watching FSU hand Stanford its worst baseball loss in school history in the Super Regional. ABC Liquors, Betton.

Bottle. Floral, subtle grapefruit aroma. Golden body with thin dissipating head. Flavor begins malty with bitter hops followed by citrus notes. Dry, with a floral finish and a bitter aftertaste.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Coda, Boston. Pours a light yellow hazy color with a small white head. Nose is nice fresh grass, light yeasty aroma. Palate is crisp and refreshing, great summer feel. Flavor is light up front with some grass and straw but finishes with a light lemon zest and a very nice floral hop note in the back end.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is quite the session-able beer here. Lots of grapefruit, hops and bread in the nose - altogether an enticing bouquet. The body is bitter and sticky, again with grapefruit but also a touch of honey and wheat. Finishing with a clean dry aftertaste that is light and refreshing, this beer could simply be consumed all damn day.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a golden hue with a very thick creamy head. Nice lacing. Piney citrus nose with a hint of grass. Skunky at first but after it breathes a sip brings citrus initially with apeppery finish that lasts a good long time. With that it still finishes clean and fresh! Excellent summer beer.

Great seasonal! Straw colored pour. Peppery hop smell with some lemon and yeast. Fruity and citrus taste. Mango and grapefruit. Robust flavors, but light and drinkable. Could down a few at ballgame for sure.

12oz bottle pours a slightly hazy straw yellow with a small white head. Aroma of grazzy sweet hops and citrus fruits, mango, and grapefruit. Clean and crisp, slight fruits, with a mild spicy hop bitterness. Nice summer ale!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2012 Draft at Taps Petaluma. Pours a deep, tarnished golden color; fluffy white head with excellent retention. Spicy hops, light citrus, and a toasty malt core; crisp and delicious. Medium body; lively carbonation; toasty, crackery malt and a vibrant core bitterness; refreshing, juicy, with plenty of citrus bitterness lingering through the finish. Awesome stuff.

Bottle. Pours a light gold with just the lightest hint of a haze and a big, pillowy head. Aromas are Beck-ian... skunky hops and skunky hops with a little bit of bread dough sticking out around the edges. Flavor tracks the nose pretty well... lots of doughy and sweet maltiness with a head to toe skunky hops presence. As it sits a while, the hops become a little more defined and take on a slightly peppery edge. I suddenly feel like mowing a few lawns!
