Bottled. A nice cascade hop aroma, citrus and some pine needles. Spicy, earthy body. Obviously pretty bitter. A decent, if slightly one-dimensional beer. YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - NOV 24, 2004
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. XO (52) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 20, 2004
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! xray (50) - Bloomfield, New Jersey, USA - NOV 18, 2004
On tap. Not bad, but a little too much of the Cascade hops. Has a serious grapefruit finish. rmalloy (199) - los angeles, California, USA - NOV 18, 2004
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. JayBaxter (407) - Greater Manchester, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2004
