Got a growler of this shipped to me from the owners, James and John. The only US-brewed IPA using whole-flower Victoria's Secret hops, from their single-hop Aussie IPA series. Seriously pumped for this, pouring into my Spiegelau snifter.

Pours an opaque orange-amber with about 1.5 finger cream colored head with good lacing and retention.

Oh man, the nose on this is awesome... can't even imagine this fresh. Mango galore, pineapple, tropical fruits, citrus, orange, spearmint, straight out of the produce aisle.

Taste follows along the nose and is really, really nice. same tropical fruit flavors with a great hop presence throughout. Mild to moderate bitterness, and a moderately dry finish. Light without being thin.

Mouthfeel is great, light-to-medium body, carbonation is spot on and crisp, finish is a little dry.

Overall: This is just a fantastic, well-made, balanced IPA. There are a lot of bitter-bomb IPAs out there these days, but this isn't what this tries to be. Instead it really nicely showcases the VS hops and balances extremely well. You could drink a lot of these without having palate burnout, which is a definite plus. Don't know when this will be made again but it needs to be.

This is to VS hops what Zombie Dust is to Citra. That good.

I loved this beer. As a homebrewer I would love to use some Victoria Secret hops. I hope to see more beers brewed with these hops here in the US. I would rank them right up there with the best US grown hops like Amarillo, Simcoe, Mosaic or any of the C's.

This is probably the best IPA to come out of Vault so far. Some of their past ones were just ok, but they really nailed it here with this one! The Aussie hops are distinctive and really pleasant. Hops everywhere but it's still balanced and very drinkable. Hope they make this one again.
