A- Fantastic color. Vibrant amber color with some nice small bubbles coming from the bottom of my Mellow Mushroom tumbler. Great two finger tan head that lasts a good while.
S- Hops with some other smells i cant figure out.
T- Good taste of bitter hops, with some kind of spice making this a complex IPA. Its strong and not for that faint of heart. (its called HOP DEVIL comonnn) hops hops hops, not my favorite hoppy IPA be defiantly pretty good. The malts in this beer balance it out making it not completely overpowering with the hops. Well done Victory..
M- Good mouth feel, the hops dont completely dry out my mouth, but i have a mild, fresh hop feel that lasts.
D- Its a strong IPA but pretty fairly decent on the drinkability.

4.55/5 rDev +11.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.5
Poured bottle into glass. 6.7% abv.
Appearance- A brilliant and clear dark red amber with a massive foamy head on it.
Smell- Citrus; orange and grapefruit. Not much else....did I mention citrus? lol
Taste- A dual blast of malt and hops. The initial malt blast is somewhat of a toasty bread character. The hops remain through the whole flavor profile until a spicy hot finish. Notes of grapefruit along with hints of sweet caramel too. Wickedly complex.
Mouthfeel- Heavy body of which is thick and creamy.
Overall- A solid example of a great IPA. This was the first craft beer I tried years ago so maybe it has a sentimental impression on me, but nevertheless, it is damn good if you dont mind a complex bitter blast. The hops linger as much as any other IPA. A must try if you're a hophead.
