There seem to be 2 entries for this on the site. The correct name is Victoria Secret Pale Ale. There seems to be a Victoria's Secret IPA, but I think they mean this one.
Had this on draft at the brewpub today. It poured a nice, almost clear yellow with a big fluffy creamy white head that hung around a bit. The aroma is pretty dank, with used gym socks, grassiness, some fruit. Interesting aroma. Flavor is a beautifully light fruit--pineapples, pears, honey dew melons. This is so light and flavorful. Really easy drinking, smooth medium carbonation. I would like to see more done with this interesting hop.
Serving type: on-tap

Reviewed from notes. Poured from a quart growler into a Cigar City pint glass.
A: Pours a nice gold color with a bit of haze and some chill haze. Forms a half-finger of white head with moderate visible carbonation.
S: Big tropical fruit and melon hops, with touches of citrus, floral, grassy hops. Just a bit of a light cracker malt in the aroma.
T: Hops up front - the notes follow the aroma but all are more subdued than suggested by the nose but in line with an APA. A nice biscuit malt backbone that's just a little bit grainy. Mild hop bitterness in the hang.
M: Has a nice light body, medium carbonation sensation, and very low alcohol presence.
O: There's nothing particularly complex here, but it's a tasty APA. An interesting exposure to a new hop varietal for me. Glad to have tried it.
Serving type: growler
