Bottled. A nice cascade hop aroma, citrus and some pine needles. Spicy, earthy body. Obviously pretty bitter. A decent, if slightly one-dimensional beer.

Victory makes some damned good beers. This is one of them. Deep amber with a small white head. The aroma was a delight to the senses with big hops/citrus. Good, crisp feel in the mouth with just the right body and carbonation. The flavor was a powerful smack of grapefruit/hoppiness. Excellent. Party on.

Bottled. Good hop nose in the glass. Pours a nice Sierra nevade brown under an off-white head. In actual taste, though, hops are not as smacky as one would believe. instead, they start out understated, a nice peppery and grassy start. The toasty malts makes a nice sticky coating in the mouth, allowing the bitterness to linger and become more pronouced, until it finishes full strength. Part of my trade with DocLock.

Hoppy and serious. I had this cask in Exton PA and it was full of hop notes and a heavy enough body to keep it all together. Malt still managed to make an appearence at the end.

You can smell the hops coming at you as you tilt the glass! This is a great beer if you’re a hop-head! Red copper colored beer with an off-white head. The citrus finish really makes me want to pour another.

If you love hops..... This Devils for you! I prefer a little more balance (like in APA’s) but as far as this style, this is one of the best. Starts out blazing in the IBU department and finishes even stronger. I can get this and will trade for Stone APA!

On tap. Not bad, but a little too much of the Cascade hops. Has a serious grapefruit finish.

Very tasty. Not overpoweringly bitter like some IPA’s, but full of hop flavor. A balanced blend of spice and fruit. A bit light-bodied I think.
