DewBrewer (295) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 24, 2009
On tap at Draught House in Austin. Medium to dark brown with small head. Nice american hop aroma with a hint of roast. The flavor is pretty intense with bittering hops, flavor hops, and roasted malt. Its like an imperial brown ale with lots of American hops. It has a medium to heavy body but is balanced enough to be drinkable. Very tasty beer if you get a chance to try it.

thehinge (292) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - DEC 27, 2009
Brown pour. Citrusy aroma. This ale has a ton of fruity, hoppy goodness. Im not such a good judge of IIPA vs. strong ale. Is there a clear difference? I would drink this any day.

bjt512 (292) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAY 9, 2010
A nice strong ale with a hoppy nose and bits of coffee, chocolate, and lemon in the flavor. The body is lighter than that description might suggest, and the bitter dipa-style finish makes this a good pair for grilled meat (even if my description makes it sound like a dessert beer). 12 oz bottle poured into a snifter.

I passed my second Microsoft IT test for a certification this morning! It feels good to be done with all that reading, and now I am ready to celebrate with a six pack from Victory. The pour was amazing. The head reached the top of my Sam Smith pint glass after half of the bottle. The aroma was sweet figs and evergreen hops. The Yakima is a perfect late summer hop-harvest style beer. The fresh hops taste grassy and have a nice malt backbone to balance the strong bitterness. The finish has peach and pecan notes. The 8.7% is warming but not overwhelming. This might be the perfect late summer beer.

Very nice, very flavorful. Sweet and creamy mouthfeel. Fairly well balanced, a hint of nice raw flavor and a generally likeable beer

Bottled. Aroma hits you in the face with the floral hops. Poured a dark amber color. Taste of big floral hops, little roasted flavor, then some citrus. good brew
