(12oz bottle, BB Jul 8 2011, courtesy of Dixonian) Pours clear golden body with a medium odd-white head. Aroma of nuts, grass, light pine, florals, and weed. Flavor of dank, grass, grain, restrained citrus, florals, and earthiness with a dry, bitter finish. jkwood04 (5448) - 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. durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 13, 2011
Bottle from Sam’s. Pours clear amber with minimal head. Nose of bitter hops and a solid malt profile showing some biscuit. A bit more bitter than expected on the taste, and not in a way that I really dig. Not very impressed. Arayaga2 (2190) - portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 19, 2011
Clear gold with a bit of white head. Aroma is sweet, citrusy and a bit spicy with a hit of grass. Taste is the same, and pretty clean with a peak of hop bitterness halfway in that fades into breadiness in the finish. $2/12oz sloth (2897) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - MAR 22, 2011
Medium sized offwhite head with fair retention and a little spotty lace. Clear, light amber color. Juicey hop nose, fruity, grapey, citrus is light. Medium bodied with a gentle carbonation, lightly oily on the palate. Gentle hops nad malts, grapefruit, grass with some dry toasty malts backin them. Light fruity, grapey notes. Dry finish, light bite. easy quaffer, enjoyable.

This was solid. Copper colored beer with a frothy, off-white head. Aromas of grapefruit, pine, and floral hops. Tastes of freshly cut grass, pine/spruce, and HUGE grapefruit notes. The finish is quite refreshing, and extremely fruity. Bitter hops are nicely balanced with the grapefruit. Easy drinking. kidmartinek (4999) - austin, Texas, USA - APR 2, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2011 Semi-cloudy copper color. Small pure white head. Bland and bitter aroma. Pale bitter flavor. This beer tastes more like a pale ale than any other pale ale I have ever had. Good job Victory. Weak falling lace. Mild compared to IPAs on the hops, but does not dissapoint. Cheers Penn. jb (3221) - Rochester, New York, USA - APR 2, 2011
Grapefruit and earth in the nose and maybe a bit of Pennsylvania, it’s in the water ya know? Dark gold appearance, clear, between 2 and 3 on the rating. A bit of the German hops in the palate, hefty hops, thin on the malt for the APA style, decent, not great. HoppyAlesToYou (167) - Saint John, Indiana, USA - APR 19, 2011
Tangerine, dank stank, grapefruit, and slight mango aromas filled my nostrils. A soapy white head settled atop the orange gold ale. Sweetness followed by medium bitterness rolled across my tongue. Soft creaminess followed by a rather thin finish, this was pleasant but somewhere between Moon Man and Michelob Pale Ale. Radek Kliber (7320) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - APR 21, 2011
