Appearance - Pours a hazy orange/golden (duh) color with a white head and some lacing left over. Looks similar to butterscotch or an orange Gatorade.
Smell - Very strong fruitiness blasts you from the get-go and not much else. Citrus and some maltiness, possibly?
Taste - Difficult to describe at best. I immediately taste banana on the first sip. Some spices mixed within. Otherwise this one is like a pack of Skittles, but not overly so.
Mouthfeel - This one had a little more carbonation than I thought it would. The sweetness mixed with some bitterness really gets the salivary glands kicking.
Drinkability - At 9.5% ABV, this one is a hazard, but it is light and smooth and ifyou like the sweetness and the spiciness, this is a good try.
Overall - Another triumph for Victory. This is an excellent brew with some good characteristics. Take this one for a dance.
