Best by April 20th 2014. Pours out a solid golden color with sticky foamy head. Smells like spicy whole hops, pine, grapefruit, peppery, some tropical fruits and a little herbal notes as well. Could there also be a whiff of licorice? Tastes hugely of hops and some sweetness. Lots of spice, citrus and again herbal notes with some sweet malts. Cannot detect a high alcohol but feel a warming sensation going down. Palate is quite full. Victory uses whole hops which in my opinion gives their beers a unique taste being more earthy and herbal. Overall this is a very pleasant double IPA and a fine example of the style.

backlog, Bottle, pours a very well carbonated golden orange with average to large sized head. Small bubbles. Smell and taste are dry hops, strong bitter pine, ash, grapefruit, and toast. Lacked balance for me and was hot in the close BeerRenter76 (1004) - Texas, USA - SEP 13, 2016
Hop wallop pours a deep yellow almost lager type body with plenty of carbonation and a thin head that left lots of heavy lace. Aroma had a few different things in it like pine, citrus and almost some floral notes, but all were rather faint. Mouthfeel was nice with a slight thickness and carbonation bite. The flavor left a little to be desired, the pine flavor bordered on skunky with a bitter finish, it wasnt bad but kinda unusual. Even though the taste was a little off i wouldn’t mind trying it again in the future. Originally rated on 11/19/08 kingaugusta (270) - Georgia, USA - JAN 4, 2016
Pours clear blonde with a modest white head. nose is the usual suspects of West Coast hops and a little sweetness. hops come on fairly strong on the front with good bitterness and some grapefruit. malt is very sweet. finish is better and somewhat sticky.

Pours a nice clear, gold color with no lacing or head retention. Smells like pine and hops. Tastes very hop forward and finishes less bitter than I thought it would. Good beer, but nothing crazy.
