pootzboy (1694) - Hopville, Ontario, - DEC 29, 2006
Bottle: Poured a shimmering opaque light copper-amber ale into the glass. Decent 2 finger rocky cap lasts well and laces. Aroma is a massive gob-smack of Cascade and Warrior hops with a big floral-grapefruit bouquet, some earthy sweetness from the malts. Impression: Substantial malt backbone, soapy mouth feel, medium-light body... citrusy hop-rich smooth character. Profile: Up front rich amber malts attack for just a second then a rush of NW hops produce a acerbic marmalade on toast effect....mid palate the hops get stronger as the bready toasty malts drop back,,,,as you approach the finish it turns slightly dry as the hops still hang in creating a bittering finish and lingering metallic aftertaste. This is a rock solid crafted APA with all the Pacific NW hop flair out pacing the big malts...not as full bodied and balanced as Libery ale but good standard sipping fare for hop heads.

Scrumpy369 (588) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 31, 2016
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2017 Bottle at home. Deep copper/mahagony colour. Small white head disappears fast. Nose is hoppy, honey like. Very intense. Some notes of acacia. Taste is hoppy bitterness, light caramel and burnt sugars. This beer might have been a superstar, but it disappointed me right now.

southnorth (9) - RUSSIA - DEC 20, 2016 does not count
Wonderfully and very balanced IPA. Beer pours a nice amber/red hue and the awoma is definitely citrus and pine. Aroma is floral hops, taste is floral and citrus hops on a strong malt background.

Turboninja (608) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 7, 2016
Bottle@Ohranjyv, 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.
