COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The tenacious grip of big, juicy hop aroma and character slides smoothly into rich, dark malts. This heavyweight battle between fresh, Yakima Valley hops and dark, roasted malts is resolved harmoniously as the flavors merge to deliver complex satisfaction with a warming edge. Enjoy the ‘twilight’ for the bright and brassy hops!

It’s been a while since my last rate. But damn... Great beer. Much thanks to the bartender at fuel & fuddle for letting me know about it. One of my most favorite IPAs ever.

Bottle. Very dark copper color - nearly opaque. Hoppy, somewhat roasty aroma. Really good. Quite strong and very hoppy - a bit like a dark version of Hop Wallop.

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2008 Whoa this is dark! Darker brown with a medium head. Aroma is heavy on the raw hops with earthy, floral, tobacco leavey hops overflowing from the nose. Flavor is a well balanced (IMHO as a hop head), sweet, hop-driven ball of goodness that is damn good - features lots of heavy earthen, woodsy, floral hops and a nice malt sweetness that just works. Best fresh/wet hop beer I’ve had. Really nice mouthfeel. Awesome.

Bottle. Was looking forward to this since its announcement. Pretty and dark. Robust, balanced aroma, everything from celery to caramel to chocolate. Everything is amplified with this beer - big malt, big bitterness. Nothing really subtle about this beer IMO. Big flavor. Almost tealike in its dry bitterness. Actually kind of smells like a brewery - but its a mustiness I actually find appealing. I love this beer.

Yakima Glory pours a deep ruby red with a nice thick foam. The aroma has a strong citrus character. This brew has a sourish bite and a bitter aftertaste. Overall, this beer is smoother and creamier than your standard IPA.

Victory Yakima Glory Ale is a highly sparkling, dark brownish red ale with a thick, creamy, light brown head that has outstanding retention and lacing It has a hoppy, roasty aroma with notes of citrus peel, caramel and coffee. It’s medium bodied, smooth and creamy with a very dry finish. It tastes dry and well bittered with citrus peel and pine resin. There’s a healthy dose of dark roast. The malt is sturdy and has a toffee-like quality. All of the flavors are in balance and they work well together. Great job, Victory. This beer is right up my alley.

pours a clear deep reddish brown color with a decent sized off white head. aroma smells like heaven. great sweet smelling hops. crisp hoppy bite with piney and citrus tasting hops. nice malty balance. i just picture this beer as something you have for the transition into spring. days are warmer and longer and you’ve been drinking stouts and porters all winter. just a phenomenal beer.

Very thick, creamy and tasty ale. This has a bitter kick after a drink, definitely one of my favorites
