Pours from bottle a mellow yellow with dense, medium white head that leaves some nice lacing. Big nose is pine and flowers, a touch of citrus and an aspiration to mango. But in the glass, it’s all pine and rind, the latter being the flavor that lazy beer writers tend to call "grapefruit." Bitter, bitter and, oh yes, bitter. Medium body, slightly slick mouthfeel. Victory has a line of good brews, including some drinkable IPAs. Here, they prove they can produce one for those willing to drink anything with "hop" in the name because, you know, hype.

Scent of fruitiness. The same applies to the taste with a little too much bitterness. Heavy bitterness that fills the mouth forever. For bitter beer for me to like it. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

fantti (1012) - FINLAND - MAR 24, 2017
Pullo @ Alko. Kaatuu IPA-lasiin vaalenkullankeltaisena ja kirkkaana, noin 2,5 sormen pumpulisen vaahdon suojaamana. Tuoksu on humaloinnin osalta hyvin kukkainen, sitruksinen ja suht havuinen, kukkaisuuden (amarillo?) ollessa selvästi vahvimpana. Maltaisuus tuntuu lievänä viljaisuutena, muttei ole kovin makean oloinen. Maku jatkaa kukkaisen sitruksisella linjalla, jotain sitruksen kuortakin tuntuu joukossa. Havua iskee loppumaussa runsaasti joukkoon. Maltaisuus on hieman makea, mutta ei karamellinen. Suutuntuma on hökkäävän humaloitu, tuntuu yllättävän tuoreelta tavaralta. Muuten tuntuma on hieman makea ja melko täyteläinen, lopussa kuivattava. Veikkaisin ainakin amarilloa (näköjään ei) käytetyn tähän humalankeruuolueen, niin vahvaa oli kukkaisuus läpi tuoksun ja maun. Katkeron puraisu ovn todella napakka, ja maltaisuus on kaukana makean karamellisesta, tämän kaltainen DIPAn pitää ollakin.

Cavie (4654) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAR 21, 2017
Growler from Kool Keg, freshly filled and opened. Clear. Golden yellow color, rocky head. Big dank, grassy hops. Some BO notes. Musty. Flavor is not over the top hoppy but it is certainly present. Bready backbone. Citrus and musty dank hops. Grassy. Fairly bitter finish but not too crazy. Nice.
