Notes/Commercial Description:
Brewers are notorious for refusing to take the easy path. Instead, we lead with our hearts and pursue our passions no matter how difficult the road ahead. Alt Route is a tribute to this stubborn spirit that drove us to dodge the status quo and found breweries. Together we chased the siren song of beer with this revamped take on an antique beer style.

Like us, Victory is one of the few brewers with an allegiance to whole-cone hops. They do extensive work with hop flavor, especially focusing on clever and delicious single-hop beers highlighting the same hop grown in different regions. They too share our roots in home brewing and never lost their passion for working with new beers and styles solely for the joy of making something new.

A 12oz bottle with a bottled on date of 6/3/14

L - Amber red with little clarity, 1 full finger of head and lace that sticks atop the brew and all over the glass on the way down

S - Not getting much aroma, and I am not sick. When I stick my nose way down into the glass some soft floral aroma and sugar smells

T - The taste totally redeems this brew! Slight sweetness up front and a bold hop finish. Well balanced and smooth.

F - Full bodied, medium carbonation

O -An enjoyable beer for sure
