This pours a nice, bright amber highlighted by hints of red with a moderate pale tan head that dissipates very slowly. In the nose there is a great balance of robust malt with a bit of caramel and bright, barely citrusy, hop aroma. The first sip hits you with a well-bodied base of the same, somewhat caramelly, maltiness that was in the aroma and a perfectly balanced medium bitterness. As the malt fades, the bitterness remains and a great hop flavor emerges, which is a touch spicy for a moment, then fading to a mostly round noble-type flavor with only a barely-perceptible spiciness. And the hop flavor seems to go on and on...

This is a very refreshing, wonderfully hopped beer, with a great malt base and piles of flavor and interest. It's a great beer for nearly any occasion or mood, and enough amazing taste and character to come back to again and again.

I am not going to beat around the bush on this wonderful brew. I have tried many good IPA's but this one is simply the best! Pure and simple. If you haven't tried it, you are missing on a wonderful thing.
Some say it's an acquired taste. I don't believe that.

A creamy head covers the dark amber color of this brew. It smells strong of hops and tastes the same. A bitter brew but not as much as other IPAs. This American IPA is probably one of the best I tasted. It is pretty awesome and my favorite Victory brew. 6.7% is a good amount of alcohol and will surely be enjoyable.
