ä, Tampere, Finland. Balanced, US style sweet, still distinctive IPA with milky or avocado nuances. Light/medium body with medium/light carbonation. Overall, definitely not the best of its style, still characteristic Victory.
Pours dark amber with medium head. Aroma is citrus, fresh grass, rainy hay, some outhouse, light resin. Taste is fruity, cucumber, citrus, resin, pine, cedar, hay, grass, dark berries, lemon. Very nice and fresh beer with different balanced sides of taste. Superb! beerbellybill (6) - - OCT 21, 2016 does not count
One of the best IPA’s I’ve ever had. It’s my go-to when I’m out as most places will have it. I call it my "Old Faithful". Great beer overall! TimE (6176) - Tokyo, JAPAN - OCT 19, 2016
Medium amber color. Spiced apple pie, oranges. rob19a (495) - - OCT 16, 2016
Medium full body with tons of orange pekoe, spiced apples and caramel. Modest hoppy finish. Well executed
15/20 bitterness and hops work really well, nice alcohol kick to it as well

For the love of Hops. Big beer with that IPA hop resin profile I was after. Good length with a solid upfront nose and nice white head when poured. I will be back LazyPyro (1681) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2016
355ml bottle. Clear golden colour with a one finger off-white head. Aroma: fruity malts, hops, pine. Taste: same as the aroma, despite the name it’s the malt that’s most prominent, fruity, some caramel sweetness, hint of liquorice, some bittering hops. Smooth mouthfeel. Nice but not what I was expecting. Tognetta (953) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - AUG 25, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2016 Âmbar escuro de leve turbidez, espuma bege de ótima formação e persistência. Aroma de bastante malte e caramelo, lúpulo, pinho em segundo plano. No paladar médio amargor e dulçor. Corpo médio/licoroso, baixa/média carbonatação. Final de média duração focado no pinho e amargor crescente, perde um pouco do caramelo/dulçor com a temperatura.

Not big hops, but grassy/musky + earth fruits (+ frankly the more interesting for it). Brings to mind Poperings Hommelbier (a good thing). There is a slight twist in the fruit – somewhere between blackcurrant + blackberry – sweetness may also be from malts (caramel, or lovely light pastry-esque (or white baguette bread). Quite drinkable. MacNJ (109) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 23, 2016
I first had this standard eleven years ago. It’s no longer my favorite IPA, but it still is a solid selection. Perhaps it’s just nostalgia. The nose imparts a faint hop, earthy scent. The appearance is brown/amber that looks like a Fest beer. The taste is malty and pine resin; not very citrusy. It does provide a spicy bite on the finish after the initial malt flavor. Personally, I love it more on a nitro pour (I had it at Victory and the Standard Tap in Philly). Cheers!
