Ports a dark translucent amber with a minimal foamy head. Strong floral hops aroma with a strong hops taste with bite. Sharp taste with a most clean, slightly sticky mouthfeel. Ron (4117) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUN 20, 2012
Bottle. Pours a light amber, cloudy yellow. Aromas floral hops with some grass. Tastes were from the malt and balanced by some nice floral, citrus and grassy notes. Body is lighter and the finish is nice and hoppy with a dry edge. Overall a great pale rangerred (989) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - JUN 9, 2012
12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a slightly hazy medium copper with a thick 1.5 finger off-white head. Really good head retention.
Aroma is full of citrus hops backed up by a little bit of malt underneath. Hops really overpower everything, though and are very inviting.
The flavor really pulls the malt and hops together with lots of citrus up front carried by some toasted caramel underneath. A little bready malt as well. Bitterness ends up being on the light to moderate side and I really wish there was a little more malt. The beer finishes relatively clean and slightly sticky.
Overall, another great beer from Victory. A great summer beer and one that is highly sessionable.

Golden-brown/amberish color topped by a thin white head. Aroma of citrusy hops, grapefruit zest and orange peel with a little doughy malt beneath. Crisp earthy bitterness, not much malt presence. Finishes nice and dry. A solid straight forward APA. hivemind (919) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 5, 2012
12oz bottle in Delaware by myself. Pours dark golden with a great big white head and plenty of bubbles. Almost the color of dehydrated piss. Aroma is fresh, woody hops and a touch of citrus. Palate is filled with pine hop and there is a touch of apricot. Almost perfect bitterness. Really fresh. Delicious pale ale.

pour a amber orange with small white head with little lacing. Aroma is of toasty malts, bread, grass, pine, and some citrus. Taste is of toasty breaded malts, grass, pine, caramel, and some grapefruit citrus. Has a medium body with a oily mouthfeel and a semi dry, refreshing finish. overall, a nice pale ale that makes a great session ale in the summer. jrob21 (3774) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 4, 2012
Slightly hazy deep orange color. A bit more of a peppery hop presence than most straight up apas. Pepper spice and grassy punch to the aroma. Flavor is smooth and slightly caramel malt. Finish is spicey and a little bit of citrus. holdenn (2116) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 2, 2012
12oz bottle. Kinda grassy aroma some older hops and malt. Golden color with a thin white head. Grassy piney flavors that are a bit cloying against the pale malts. Bitter cloying finish. ok pkgpusher (2) - Michigan, USA - JUN 2, 2012 does not count
Very clean and refreshing. A great summer beer with gentle pine and citrus hints. An overall bright finish makes for a very pleasing drink. sonnycheeba (6279) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 27, 2012
