COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Three hop varieties have added tremendous zest to this Pale Ale. After a soft and full floral nose, those juicy hops saturate the middle of this amber ale with more flowery fullness. The malt body punctuates the lingering hop richness of this one-of-a-kind ale.

Aroma is piney hops and orange/citrus/slightly juicy. The flavor is orange/citrus, pine needles, grapefruit, malts and a mix of tart and bitter/spicy in the finish.

Nice dark amber pour with a tall head and lacing. Aromas like a bag of fresh hops, spruce and grass and clove-spiked oranges. Perfume palate, honeysuckle and bitter hops, ruby grapefruit. Really delicious.

Pours a burnt orange color. In tulip glass. Has a good cream color head, about one finger, but thick. Good retention. Very thick, clumpy lacing. Looks great.

Aroma is peach! Grapefruit! Wow! Biscuity. Floral.

Taste is citrusy, orange peel. Its sweet, but quickly turns bitter. Well balanced. Taste isnt as good as the aroma, but breathing it in as you drink it, sort of makes up for that.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied. Crisp, dry. Juicy.

Overall, this is really good. Very enjoyable. I would recommend it, and I would buy it again.

jgb9348 (6055) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 15, 2017
Copper and toffee coloured body with a smallish, single centimetre tall off-white head and a bit of an amber glow as well. Aroma of fresh grassy, floral and perfumey hops with a nice malt and toffee scent as well. Medium-bodied; Strong biting floral and grassy hoppy flavours up front with a smooth and sweet caramely and biscuity malt presence along with some dry herbal flavours and a touch of sugar at the end - very well balanced. Aftertaste shows some grain, a bit of caramel, a good deal of dryness and a lot of floral, grassy and very perfumey hop characteristics along with a great balance of malt throughout. Overall, a very nice fresh hopped APA with some good dry elements and a very well struck balance between the hops and the malt. Definitely worth trying (especially fresh) if you can find this! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in Alexandria, Virginia on 15-November-2016 for US$3,24 sampled at home on the Eastern Shore of Virginia on 14-January-2017.

On tap at MacGregors with the usual Thanksgiving weekend gang. Good floral hoppy aroma. Nice fresh wet hop flavor. Easy going down and enjoyable.
Earlier Rating: 12/2/2014 Total Score: 3.8
Bottle after running at indoor track. Good Piney and fruity hop aromas. 1st sip I thought this was very intense for a APA. Great amount of Pine and Grapefruit upfront with a decent bitterness.

DATE: November 10, 2016... OCCASION: at the West End Ale Haus with Shan celebrating our fortieth birthdays and our fifteenth anniversary... GLASSWARE: nondescript pint... poured a beautifully clear, brown amber body... head is at the glasss edge, leaving little room for development...considering this, it still presents well, off-white and clinging with coral lacing as the glass drains... the aromaa is grapefruit and melon, slightly hoppy, with a blanket of bread and caramel malts that balance nicely and provider the "harvest"... the body is medium strength, lively at the teeth and throat, and inviting the next sip with fervor... the taste is as balanced as its scent suggests, with caramel, toffee, grapefruit, resin, and floral hints...man, this is a slammable, satisfying beer that has enough heft to distinguish itself from other Victorys yet belong in the family....and a shout-out to the Ale House too-great service and knowledgeable staff here...
