Looks like a pretty malty IPA. I smell hop fruitiness that reminds me of the Cascade hop with a grapefruit like fruitiness. I also get an amazing tropical smell reminiscent of mango with some sweetness from the malt. The taste is just as awesome that starts with a spicy hop bite that quickly gets run over by the burnt caramel malt and then the dry bitterness comes through with that grapefruit like fruitiness from the hops.
I'm glad they decided to pick this beer to have the different malt backing to balance the hops out. This malts remind me of a lighter Yakima Glory so that the hops shine through more. It's actually an interesting take on an IPA because of that burnt, roasted caramel malt taste that goes along with the whole flowers they use. I love that they use whole flowers in their beer it gives all of them a distinct Victory taste... this one being one of their very best. Another A plus for Victory.
