radio_nowhere (1472) - Maryland, USA - JAN 13, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2014 Bottle into snifter glass, cloudy golden color with white head. Aroma of funky floral/fruity hops and slight pine note too. Taste is much more welcoming, very tropical fruit leaning (mango, pineapple) and some honey. Medium body, low carbonation, soft, cream, slick with smooth hoppy finish. Ill admit the aroma was somewhat offputting with the funk but this IIPA more then makes up for it in taste, palate and finish. Great stuff.

Den som prisar alla prisar ingen, lyder en klokskap. Drfr borde jag kanske hlla igen med bermmet fr denna frnmliga... Attans. Ja, Victory gr skl fr namnet och levererar nnu en fulldig maltbrygd. Ligger s bra i munnen att man nstan drar sig fr att svlja. Om amerikaner vore lika skickliga p politik och folkrtt som p lbryggande hade vrlden inte knts fullt s dystopisk.

Jultsu (933) - TAMPERE, FINLAND - MAY 12, 2017
BBE 15/11/2017. Kuparisen haalea vri, olematon mieto vaahto. Tuoksusta ei saa kiinni, lhinn ontto raikkaus. Suutuntuma kohtalaisen kuiva, semihykkvn pippurinen, suufiilis kohtuukiva hedelmisyys, alkoholisikunaa, Liian kuiva, ei jatkoon.

355ml bottle from Alko. 2016 B2. Pours clear golden orange with a smooth white head. Aroma of caramely malts, old grassy hops, hints of fruits, pine and citrus. Taste is sweetish, malty and caramely with some stingy hoppiness, hints of tropical notes, fruits and pine. Finish is sweet and malty with some old hops, hints of caramel, pine and resin. Not very fresh, unfortunately.

Poured from the tap into a tulip glass at the Taco Mac in Atlanta. The appearance is a murky light yellow color with a small white head. The aroma is citrus and hops. The taste matches the nose.

Pumpkin87 (247) - - APR 15, 2017
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, its 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.

Cool_Bond (2598) - KUNG_AV_OL @ Instagram, SWEDEN - APR 11, 2017
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 l @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
