As my beer knowledge grows, I have found that I have gone from a newbie a few years ago who would cringe at the taste of hops to a seasoned pro, who craves a hoppy beer. I compared this to my beloved Bell's Bell's Two Hearted and found it to be just as good, excellent even. Pours out to a beautiful copper, with a slight head. Taste and smell is that of grapfruit and other citrus. The hop taste is fantastic, but doesn't overwhelm the beer. I believe this is due to my palate digging hops, someone who is new to beer would probably make a face. Unlike one of the other reviewers who said they probably could only have one or two, I believe this could be a session quaffer. It went down that easy. I still give Bell's a slight nod over Victory ONLY because Victory isn't available in Michigan and Bell's cloudy, golden give it just a slight appearance grade higher. But, if this beer were available here...it'd be a tie.

A big thanks to pbrian for sending this my way!

From a bottle into a pilsner glass. Bought this bottle yesterday couldn't wait to crack it.

A: deep gold with a burnt orange hue. Not much light penetration. Little head and no lace to speak of. I can see the carbonation rising rapidly in the glass.

S: pungent hops with light citrus aroma on the tail end.

T: bitter and hoppy from start to finish. The citrus smell carries over to lemon notes mixed with those hops.

M: fantastically smooth for such a bitter bomb in flavor. I could drink this all day.

O: I find myself wondering how I waited so long to pick this up and give it a try. If you an IPA/DIPA drinker this is a must try.
