I love a good IPA so was anxious to try this one.
Starts out with a real thick foamy head, then develops good lacing. Great Copper/red color. Nice Grapefruit/hoppy smell. A nice IPA but I think with the name I was expecting more Hops.
Its still a very satisfying IPA, very drinkable. A good session IPA. Has a dry mettalic mouthfeel.
Goes down very easy.
This is my first product from Victory, will definately try some others.

A clear caramel color brew with a medium off-white head and fair lacing. The aroma is mild citrus hops with a firm yeasty malt base. The flavor is nice orange peel hops with a bit of malt blended in. A smooth mid-bodied beauty that is very drinkable. Pleasantly carbonated, just an overall agreeable choice with fair hops presence to appeal to most anyone that appreciates some bitterness to their beer. Recommended.

Pours a hazy copper orange into my goblet, with a half-finger off-white head which quickly recedes to a spotty film over the body of the beer. Aroma is orange, citrus, piney hops, with malt detectable as well. Mouthfeel is slippery and a little oily, despite the medium carbonation. Taste is a good balance of malt and hops, pine, citrus, fruity sweetness, with definite sharpness in the finish. I do not know much about IPAs, but this is one of the better that I have had. Drinkability is moderate to high for me, although I am not a hop lover by any stretch.
