Tap at Victory. Poured a light amber with a medium, white head that had excellent retention and excellent lace. Very good hoppy APA nose. Grassy hops abounding with some perfume and a little corn. Taste is oatmeal, buttery malt-forward with a dry, bitter, grassy hop aftertaste that is long and drying. Would be a killer session beer.

Draft 1Q at Victory. Pours hazy dark straw with 1-f ow head. Nose is piney hops, pale malt, tangerine, some peppery notes, and a hoppy, piney, crisp fllavor with well integrated pale malt and slight late funk. Well balanced and a nice beer that I hope they continue to male and even bottle. EricE (1367) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 30, 2010

Yellow pour with a slight orange tint. Thin white head. Grainy malt and cereal aroma. Very crisp and clean with a slight cereal taste. Malt with hops to finish.
Had with James at the pour house. Pour is clear gold. Little head. Some lacing. Aroma reminded me of pasta. Bready and herbal. Flavor is hops, citrus and lemon. A little off though. Too intense and not well balanced. nimbleprop (8382) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 23, 2010
On tap at Max’s in Baltimore. Pours a clear, transparent orange with one ring of white head. Smells like skanky, earthy hops, oranges, pine cones. Flavor is sweet, caramel, crackers, malts, citrus fruits, oranges, leafy hops. Finish is medium bodied and bitter. Nose is a little off putting.

On tap at Victory headquarters. I am not sure what they were pursuing here, but if it was a fine APA, then they got it. There was a touch of sweat in the aroma. The flavor features dry, piney hops, and some light, fruity sweetness. A nice, fresh, hoppy ale. Lubiere (13905) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 12, 2010
A lightly hazed golden amber ale with a thick lacing white head. Very nice pungeant aroma of floral hops, sweet oranges, classic. In mouth, a nice hoppy pale ale with good floral hops, light grapefruits, biscuitty, a bit lacking in malt, very British. On cask at the People’s Real Ale Fest, Clarke’s Ale House, April 30 2010. adrian910ss (2574) - Doylestown, PA, USA - MAY 12, 2010

Taste of light tangy notes, grains, faint citrus and hops. egajdzis (6580) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 25, 2010
Lightly hazy amber color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus fruits, tangerine, peach, herbal, grass, and some honey malts. Taste of citrus fruits, tangerine, tropical fruits, some sweeter caramel malts, and a bitter, grapefruit finish. jeremytoni (3058) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - MAR 28, 2010
From a tap poured amber with a fair amount of head. Nice hoppy flavor with a quick finish.
