12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.
A: Amber / orange tint with a decent carbonation. Head is two fingers after pouring, but fades quickly.
S: Orange citrus, caramel, with noticeable floral characteristics.
T: The malt backbone imparts sweetness at first. Finishes with a earthy hop kick. Lots of pine, juniper, smoke, and salt in that hop flavor.
M: Smooth and easy drinking, even with the emergence of hop flavor at the end. Leaves you smacking your lips as the sweet and spice elements mingle.
O: A very drinkable (even sessionable) IPA. Like their brethren on the West Coast, Victory has put its unique stamp on the style. What’s most impressive to me is how approachable this beer is. It isn’t over-hopped, still bold in its flavors, and backs off the intensity where others might try to amp it up a notch. Sometimes less is more. I certainly find myself able to put down 2 or 3 of these a lot easier than others.
