I was not expecting to see this on draft but when the opportunity presented itself last fall I did not hesitate. A very nice release definite packs a Wallop that hits you multiple times with flavor and depth. Typical of Victory, this is a prototypical Eastern IPA.
Aroma / Appearance - A creamy orange base glimmers with light below lazy legs and stiff white head. Citrus, grapefruit, and bright hops warm the air. This is not meek about trying to compete with the other imperial IPAs.
Flavor / Palate - Smooth despite the high gravity, this mixes malts with hoppy mangoes. The warm finish flows and sticks to the throat. A solid release is worth drinking fresh although it will probably morph into a nice barleywine with due time.
Aroma - not an overwhelming aroma, but definately something there. Sweet Piney smell.
Appearance - Cloudy orange hazy color.
Taste - Nice balance between hops and malt. Nice mouth feel. Orange peel
Palate - Very nice. Lingers in the mouth nicely
Overall - Very good beer. I would have it again. Not as "hoppy" as the name suggests though. rumproasts (5359) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 8, 2014
bottle. Golden with one finger head. Medium body. Big citrus hops, grapefruit especially. Solid big IPA. jmagnus87 (2912) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - APR 6, 2014
From notes. Bottle from a local store. Loads of hoppy fruit flavors. Citrus, pine and caramel. Pretty good.

I just did my 2nd sampling of this brew, it wasn’t any better then first a few months ago. I like many of the Victory line up, but this iPA doesn’t do it for me. Maybe to hoppy? CpyNPrnT (616) - Indiana, USA - MAR 13, 2014
From notes. A decent DIPA, but very sweet. Definitely hoppy, very sweet with some floral notes, grass. Retired now, indifferent on the beer. Beerhunter111 (20490) - P´Castle, GERMANY - MAR 10, 2014
Ins Glas ergießt sich ein orangegoldenes Bier mit geringer aber schönen Schaumkrone. Geruch sehr malzig herb, fruchtig, tropische Früchte. Geschmack stark malzig bitter, fruchtig herb, minimal würzig. gruberm (329) - - MAR 8, 2014
Golden pilsner like color. Small to no head and little odor, perhaps grainy if any odor at all. Flavor is nice grassy citrus hop flavors with a light subtle effervescent finish.

Bottle. Aroma has notes of flowers, grapefruit, citrus, tropical fruits and toasted malts. Medium yellow/amber hue with an average white head that mostly diminished and left decent lace. Flavor is very sweet and bitter. Palate is full bodied and watery with a soft carbonation and long bitter finish. Overall a nice IIPA from Victory.
