On tap at Proof, advertised as Victory 15th anniversary, pour pale later, a little tan lacing, weak hoppiness, very dry, grassy, a bit gritty, not great, but spectacular for an anniversary. Boring. jkwood04 (5477) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 3, 2011
12oz bottle in a shaker. Pours amber with an off-white head. Aroma of floral hops and light malts. Flavor about the same. Pretty hoppy for a pale ale. Average texture. A nice brew, but nothing special. pineypower (3352) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - MAR 2, 2011
Bottle from Canal’s Hainesport. Pours out a clear, amber color with a very small lacing white head. Aroma is of cereal grains, light citrus hops, grass and biscuit. Taste is biscuit, toasted malts, some light citrus and grassy hops and maybe a slight caramel sweetness in there also. Nice, drinkable pale, this almost leans more towards a British pale, solid and very drinkable none the less...I could throw these back all night. blutt59 (6629) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 2, 2011

A nice pale ale. Aroma was nice and mellow. An even mix of chewy caramel and grassy hops. Pour was a nice medium gold with a one finger white head. Taste was very even and balanced. The caramel makes the beer sweet initially and is washed away by the bitter and grassy hops after the swallow. This doesn’t stand out in any way but is a solid beer j12601 (13493) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAR 1, 2011
On tap at Holy Smoke. Pours an orange amber with a medium sized white head. Pine and citrus, clean caramel. Crisp and hoppy, nice earth notes, caramel and malt. Crisp earthy bitterness. Long lingering grapefruit on the finish. Great stuff. hopdog (13315) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 1, 2011

On tap. Pours with a clear, pale yellow body with a white head. Aromas are grassy, grainy, lime and citrus. Flavors are grainy, cornbread and light citrus. Grain is the dominating flavor, not hops (and this is fresh). Lively and dry. TURDFERGUSON (4058) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 28, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2012 Bottle. I like this beer. It smells fresh and tastes fresh. It’s a little more green and herbal than i like my pale ales but thats better than malty and sweet. Slightly chalky mouthfeel. Good, but a little too much lingering bitterness for me want to session it.
Had this a lot more and I have changed my opinion from my first experience. Less green, more tropical fruits, grass, citrus, nice and dry.
