The carbonation in this beer seems to float, suspended in its amber red beauty, sort of like fine dust particles flying through the sun lit air of a warm childhood memory. Smells like spring time, and hops... mostly hops though... im sure they're either cascade or centennial... but im not sure, maybe a mix. A strong hop attack, all at once, all of a sudden. I get the malt flavor too, a bit tannic, but has a nice roasted, burnt flavor that I can totally deal with... In fact, I like that in this beer, the toasted malt complements the hop characteristics... A lot can be said on the floral, citrus, and grapefruit notes of the hops, but the main point of this beer is that its over balanced, hop wise. (note the name: hop devil) Mouthfeel is what you'd expect from the name, along with drinkability of an IPA. Good American IPA... ive seen nothing but good things out of Victory.
