3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle served in a pilsner glass. Best by March 13, 2012.
A: Pours a solid amber color one fluffy off white head forming on the pour. The head sticks around for quite some time and leaves nice sticky webbings of lace.
S: The smell is very caramel malt based with some pine and light citrus fruits popping up in there.
T: The taste is dominated by a sweet bready and toffee malt with some minimal piney notes as well light citrus mingling in there. There is a touch of some floral nights that do brighten it up a bit, but still not enough.
M: The mouthfeel is solid, a tad on the lighter side. The body has tons of lively carbonation to it. The taste has some decent linger to it, but it’s nothing special.
O: Typical malt forward East Coast IPA. A solid beer, but pretty average for the style. Nothing really makes it stand apart from the solid malt base and light hop variations.

I use the Beer Buddy app to discover, catalog and rate beers.
I used to love this app BEFORE the latest update that forces you to login and even more annoying is you are now forced to write a MINIMUM 75 CHARACTER COMMENT in order to save and upload a beer rating. In most cases I simply don't have 75 characters of comments, thus this canned response. My apologies to all beer lovers.

Rating 1500 - Bottle - pours dark amber with a cream head. Aroma is grassy, resin and fruit. Taste is nice berry fruit up front with a drying fruity finish...not what I expected. ansalon (4223) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - DEC 21, 2017
Pours amber with a medium frothy white head. Aromas of caramel, pine, grapefruit, malt, resin, peach. Taste is fruity and somewhat grassy with floral. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Moebbels (835) - FINLAND - DEC 8, 2017
A clear dark amber beer with a well lasting fluffy white head. Intense hop aromas of mangoes, apricots, resin and other tropical sweet fruits. Sweet flavor with a slowly developing bitter, lingering finish. Low carbonation and drinkable body. For the ABV, a very drinkable and well balanc3d beercwith excellent hop aroma.

This brew is a beautiful deep amber colour with a big creamy head. Rich aromas of malt and caramel with a hint of pine. Full flavoured, with plenty of carbonation and a lingering bitterness. A nice drop, but the flavour is perhaps a bit too overpowering to drink all night Russtheiceman (9) - - NOV 19, 2017 does not count
This is without doubt one of my favorite IPA’s. Of course just about everything from Victory is really good, so it’s to be expected.

Nice maltiness, caramel, some toast, hops faded away, some pine, herbal note. Moderate to light sweetness, light bitterness. Drinkable, but far from frssh. explosivedog (1827) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 10, 2017
355ml bottle. Pours red brown. Strawberry, caramel, orange peel, grapefruit, pepper, little herbal. Nice. beern (237) - Alabama, USA - OCT 4, 2017
Pours amber-whiskey colored and mostly translucent with a one finger off white head with good retention and an aroma of citrus. Tastes of malt and the hops give a wood/oak character with mild bitterness. It has a strong medium body with moderate carbonation. The malt tastes of slightly sweet caramel. It's warming and complex. I prefer an IPA with a strong malt backbone. This is complex, well balanced and very good.
