look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A - Pours a deep copper with a two finger off-white head that has excellent retention. Nice amount of lacing that clings to the sides of the glass.

S - Smells of strong citrus hops, as it should.

T - Taste is surprising, simply because it's not as bitter as expected. The citrusy hops are in full force, but there's a strong malt backbone to really smooth it out. A hoppy beer to be sure, but tastes very well balanced.

M - Smooth. Real smooth.

D - Excellent. Great, bold flavor plus a smooth mouthfeel makes me want another before I'm even done with the first one.

Notes: I must be turning into more of a hop head than I thought, because I'm enjoying this IPA more than I thought I would enjoy any hoppy brew.

12 oz bottle poured into a Smuttynose pint glass

A - pours copper-orange with two fingers of off-white head. Foam sticks to side of glass.

S - powerful citrus hop aroma backed by a malty sweetness

T - initially on the sweet, bready malt side, then BAM the hops kick in. The bitterness is substantial but not overwhelming, with a great hoppy flavor before the bitterness hits the back of your tongue

M - sticky, lightly carbonated, just coats your mouth with hoppy goodness

D - an excellent IPA, I could drink these all night. Just enough malt presence to balance the hoppiness, but not enough to make it cloyingly sweet.

One of my go-to beers. A fantastic IPA.

Dang good. First impression upon opening: freshly cut Christmas tree. Or is that the neighbor’s Douglas fir? Anyway… Smooth and very hoppy, with a hint of grapefruit. This is everything that an IPA should be.

The more I sample of Victory the more I like them.
